The Umgard system was the location of at least one planet.[1] Colonized by the Capellan Confederation during the Star League era, it is located in what was then the Sian Commonality of the Capellan Confederation, close to the border with the Taurian Concordat and near the worlds of Smithon and Brinton.

System History[edit]

Umgard was first colonized by the Capellan Confederation, but between 2864 and 2890, the Confederation had abandoned many of its periphery holdings and moved their periphery border some thirty lightyears coreward; Umgard was mapped as an independent periphery system beyond the Confederation's borders as of 2890.[2] It last appeared on a 3022 map that showed it to be part of the Aurigan Coalition,[3] a political entity itself teetering on the brink of collapse at the time,[4] and vanished from maps afterwards, indicating that it had either been abandoned, depopulated, or rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.

Infrastructure

Umgard is a jungle world teeming with life, but tidal stress from its two moons causes earthquakes and considerable volcanic activity that in turn creates a murky environment with a foul-smelling, near-toxic atmosphere that makes any machinery corrode quickly.[1] At the time of its incorporation into the Aurigan Coalition, Umgard was considered one of the "more marginal" systems (alongside Gangtok, Heliat, and Mangzhangdian); it had lost almost all vital colonial infrastructure and was facing complete depopulation.[36]
