[3132] Algorab's existence surprised astronomers, who had originally classified its home binary system of being
incapable of supporting planets. Beneath the obscuring dust cloud that surrounded it, however, explorers
discovered not a simple protosystem, but five worlds swirling about the smaller orange K0-class sun as it in turn
orbited a nearby white subgiant. The solar radiation, however, blasted all five of these worlds with incredible heat,
rendering all worlds but one completely uninhabitable. The farthest planet, a ringed world which somehow
managed to form shallow polar oceans, an atmosphere with sufficient ozone protection, and even some primitive
plant-life, thus became a colony site for people eager to escape the tyranny of Terran government in mankind's
first exodus into space. Despite higher than average concentrations of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and trace
amounts of methane, Algorab drew a remarkable number of colonists eager to exploit this world for its metallic
and natural gas deposits. The planet's interior, well between the polar oceans of Niriama in the north and
Vanishing Sea in the south, became populated by a smattering of shielded, climate-controlled mining and refining
colonies, linked to the more hospitable shoreline settlements by a system of maglev rail lines and airship cruisers.
The lands in between, largely barren wastes of rock and sand, is inhabited by only the hardiest of settlers from
Terra's central African and Middle Eastern regions. The promise of profit in the fuel and mining industries drew
many more people to Algorab over the decades, even though this world lay uncommonly far from its jump point
and lacked sufficient arable land to support itself without reliance on freeze-dried foods from off-world. These
same factors, however, made Algorab a difficult target for raids throughout the Succession Wars, and only a few
assaults were launched against this planet. Even the Word of Blake could not be bothered with this planet during
their Jihad, and their actions here were limited solely to destroying the zenith and nadir jump recharge stations in
passing. Under Republican rule, Algorab's zenith jump station has been rebuilt, and provides in-system travelers
with a link to the planetary capital and spaceport city of Delcorvius Prime, located on the shores of the Niriaman

Algorab was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic.  Algorab became part of
Prefecture VIII under the control of The Republic.  After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Algorab was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Algorab joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
