Aguerra Prime usually referred to simply as Aguerra is a small peaceful world in the Aguerra System. The planet has one large moon.
Environment & Ecology[edit | edit source]
The planet is mostly covered with water, leaving only a few archipelagos above the surface. The water of the planet is poisonous, though its beauty and tranquility are unrivaled when when one wishes to simply kick back and enjoy the view and the sound of the gentle lapping waves. This is not a place where you'll be bothered by noisy swimmers and splashing children.
Native Life[edit | edit source]
There are a few known forms of native life. Before consuming any of the native sea-life as food it needs to be detoxified.
Culture & Colonization[edit | edit source]
Recently it was colonized by people with a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. The people came together to work the treacherous deep sea mines. This created a teeming community on the few, small, densely populated islands. Neighbors live close enough to converse through their windows without raising their voice, though they don't seem to realize that. The undercurrent of resentment that normally accompanies these tight living conditions is easily concealed by the openly offered 'friendly' advice that is loudly exchanges in passing on a regular basis. There is a larger city on Aguerra Prime, called New Venice.
The main source of income on Aguerra comes from the deep sea mining of the mineral Sicherite and Orthorhombic Crystals that contain Thallium which is used to produce Heim-drive Coils, the longest lasting drive coils available. The mines are incredibly dangerous environments containing large pockets of toxic vapor.
The restaurants on Aguerra are said to be one of a kind, an "adventure in dining." If you like detoxified sea food, this is an experience you will surely not want to miss. The unique blend of smoked Aguerran Algae-Welk Fish and sweet Carnivorous Chili Seeds is a combination of scent and flavor you will not soon forget.
Attack of the Athena[edit | edit source]
Captain Gale Revas chose the planet as the next target for her Drone operation. The mercs set to work destroying the satellites orbiting the planet to prevent calling for help, then deployed gas bombs to subdue the local colonists, killing anyone who resisted or managed to avoid the initial bombardment. Riddick was subsequently shot down and crashed on the planet while attempting to escape. Fortunately, he survived and fought his way back to the Athena, foiling its scheme with help from Lynn Silverman. It is unknown what happened to the surviving colonists still aboard the ship.
