Nigel is a planetary system orbiting a yellow G-class star.  The system lies in the Draco Constellation of the Polaris Region.

Developing the icy primary planet was a project of a group of wealthy business owners from the Polaris Region. They planned to mine the mineral rich world and eventually terraform it to make it at least partially habitable. The plan ultimately failed and nearly bankrupt the group.


The majority of the valuable minerals were located deep below the ice, it proved to be too costly to extract, No company or government has wanted to restart the project. The planet's only population are a few groups of workers who stayed behind.
