59 Virginis


59 Virginis is a planetary system orbiting a yellow G-class star.  The system lies in the Virgo Constellation of the Inner/Sol Region.

59 Virginis was one of the outermost, original, Terran Colonies. The isolated colonists on the primary planet suffered vast loses during the early years of the settlement. Despite this, Terran based companies continued the send colony ships to the planet, looking to establish a population and take advantage of the planet’s extensive natural resources


Hot, muggy weather, diseases, and swarms of large insects plagued the world. Terran based crops were difficult to impossible to grow on the planet, this caused widespread famine along with the inability to support the waves of colonists coming in.


Genetically engineered crops were created by mixing a hybrid of Earth-based crop along with plants from 59 Virginis.  This greatly aided with the establishment of a large, permanent population on the planet.
