Forged Earth

'Forged Earth' - 5th planet of it's system - is home to a Human society descendant from pre-warp colonists who left Earth in the mid 22nd Century; discovered by Starfleet in late 2417. It is one of two M-Class worlds in the system; the second of which - Newfrika - hosts a significant mining operation in support of the primary colony.


The planet is dominated by two major continents - North & South - with the core of the colony built around numerous cities in the northern continent, whilst the Southern continent plays host to more rural settings and coastal tourism destinations. The most developed of said population centers is the capital city - The Valley - which has developed around the crash site of the original colony vessel (a site which is now home to something resembling a cathedral), though the landscape is distinctly more dominated now by the FEPD HQ building, standing at approximately 74 storeys tall.

Though a large portion of the oxygen-rich world is of moderate climate and stable geology, extreme regions show signs of historical tectonic instability and inclement conditions - all of which appear to have been countered through a combined use of biodomes and terraforming techniques (techniques which are also evident across other planetary bodies in this star system). Further in depth study by Starfleet research teams has yielded additional insight into the cultural and spiritual heart of the Forged people; being the cathedral which now sits at the heart of The Valley and preserves the remnants of the original colony vessel. Though the limited remains of the now deeply buried vessel are largely preserved for posterity, a significant section of it has been re-purposed as a prestigious burial site which yields yet further insight into the spiritual connection formed between the modern population and their immediate ancestry.

Astrological Survey, Newsa

SUBMITTED: Stardate 95301.5 FILED BY: LT K. Sumida, Acting CSO, U.S.S. Attar SECURITY: Level 1 - Open


LOCATION: Newsa, Forged Earth System


MISSION: Astrological survey of Newsa


OUTCOME: All data collected and duly stored; further analysis underway; new sensor anomaly detected and under investigation


NARRATIVE: Standard analysis from geo-centric orbit of Newsa has proven to be harder than originally estimated. The presence of a very slight percentage, though highly concentrated, of high-density minerals under the planet surface has initially hampered some of the efforts put by the Geology Department to accurately map the mineral deposits in certain areas. In order to compensate, a modification has been implemented to the ship's multi-band linear sensor suites. This modification allowed a more in-depth penetration of small-size portions of the surface for a more accurate analysis of the different mineral layers. A few hours before the survey was to be completed, another gravitational anomaly, identical to the one already detected while in Newceana's orbit, showed up on sensors. However, it proved impossible to determine almost anything about it, and due to its sudden disappearance, it is actually considered to be a sensor anomaly. Under specific orders by Capt. Timoreev, Engineering is now employing all available resources in order to identify and contain the anomaly in our sensor systems, in order to avoid any interference with the data coming from our surveys. Five probes have also been launched on the planet surface to collect geological samples which are now under detailed analysis in our laboratories.
