Solovar Thalis III
Solovar Thalis III is named, as is traditional of the Thorion Empire, after one of its many emperors. The planet is home to the first terrestrial, off world, colony of the Thorion Empire making it both a strategic and symbolic asset. It is a ringed world, surrounded by a dense asteroid field that has been hollowed out for the numerous precious heavy metals present in them. These resources formed the basis of the Royal Shipyards that constructed the greater bulk of the Thorion fleet, both before and after the Galactic Purge. Solovar Thalis III continues to serve as an integral part of the Thorion Empire, especially as the Royal Shipyards have been pressed once again into service now that an arrangement with the Earth based Armor Corporation has been reached to form Nova Systems.
The planet itself has a thin atmosphere that is devoid of most vegetative life with the exception of primitive algae that grows along the polar regions. The atmosphere is exceptional thin, making it difficult to sustain life – it is recommended that EVA be limited unless an emergency breathing apparatus is kept on hand.
