NU-193-DUSTSTORM, also called DUSTSTORM is the name given to a large rouge planet near the Andromeda Galaxy. The size of the planet is aproximate to the size of Jupiter, yet quite smaller. DUSTSTORM is also a gas giant, with incredibly low gravity, allowing things to float. Because of the fact that core of gives out thermal energy through the planet, life is allowed to prosper, yet no flora has been noted to exist.Investigation and colonization of DUSTSTORM is still ongoing.
NU-193-DUSTSTORM was first discovered in 2005 by The Rafterz species through telescopes. A year after it’s discovery, the first manned expedition attempt was conducted by The Rafterz. This attempt failed, as two days after landing, the expedition team went radio silent. Since then, alien factions around the universe are attempting to colonize and populate the planet.
The whereabouts of the original crew of the Rafterz expedition is still unknown. See Discovery 45-S.
DUSTSTORM‘s atmosphere contains unknown, poisonous gases that can pass even through specialised and sophisticated gas masks. This requires highly specialized hazmat suits for colonization.
DUSTSTORM also experiences windstorms almost daily. These windstorms usually carry tiny rocks with them, hence the term “DUSTSTORM” in the planet’s name. The planet’s gravity is also unusually low, giving the ability to float with ease. Because of low gravity, large boulders made out of brown rock containing strains of zinc float in the atmosphere, providing as shelter for fauna. The biggest of these boulders that were recorded was aprox. the size of Rhode Island.
Despite DUSTSTORM being full of fauna, no flora have ever been recorded.
A list of all known fauna on DUSTSTORM will begin here.
Most colonies on DUSTSTORM consist of Rafterz-native species, but other aliens have also been recorded colonizing DUSTSTORM, including Homo Sapiens.
