This planet was selected as the first Human colony world and an expedition to colonize the planet was launched in 2063. After successfully transiting a wormhole to reach the planet, the colony ship landed and the colonization effort began. The colony was attacked and destroyed by Chig fighters and ground troops.[2][3]
