Owner History[edit]

Planetary Info[edit]

Star League[edit]

In the years before the fall of the Star League, one of the DropShips of the 218th Mechanized Infantry Division suffered a drive failure during planetfall. This resulted in the loss of the vessel and the two armor battalions that were traveling on board.[13]

Jihad[edit]

Loongana is a relatively uninteresting world. Tucked away in the Duchy of Tamarind-Abbey they were spared the horrors of the Jihad. However, in 3079 Venkateswara Shipping began building a factory complex just outside of Zathus, the capital city. Construction hadn't been completed in 3079. Loongana has only one continent named Ooldea.[1]
