 Alhena, along with many other worlds situated along the Marik / Steiner border, has suffered much during
the Succession Wars. The planet's surface is scarred and battered, and as such Alhena simply cannot grow
enough food to support itself. One of the planet's primary imports is farm machinery.
Another unlikely candidate for colonization, Alhena was initially settled as little more than a scientific
outpost during mankind's earliest ventures into space, exploring the potential for life under even the vary between
nine and twelve Terran standard astronomical units in distance, this world has developed a peculiar orbit as a
result of the interacting pull of both suns, creating a pattern where long, harsh winters follow short, but pleasant,
summers. Despite this inhospitable environment and the relative lack of free water on the planet's surface, small
settlements eventually rose all over the northern hemisphere, particularly along the shores of the polar Alhennian
Ocean. Lacking in major resources, this world was largely overlooked throughout the Age of War and the Star
League era, even though it relied heavily on off-world trade, particularly in agricultural machinery and products, in
order to sustain its population. Through the Succession Wars, however, its position as a Free Worlds League
border world led to several raids by nearby House Steiner, leaving the surface scarred and battered, further
undermining the people's ability to raise enough food for self-sufficiency. During the Jihad, in fact, off-world trade
to Alhena became so disrupted that almost ten percent of the population died of starvation during one of the
planet's long winters. Since its admittance into The Republic of the Sphere, this planet has recovered somewhat,
but remains reliant on off-world trade for its very survival. Unfortunately, this survival is now threatened by
increasing concern that instabilities in the inner sun may herald a coming cataclysm, possibly a nova, as it
continues its Epoch's-long descent into stellar death. For this reason, a number of evacuation plans have already
been drafted in the event that such an occurrence proves to be more imminent than presently believed. Alhena's
capital city and primary spaceport, Focci's Point, is located near the eastern shores of the Alhennian Ocean.
Alhena was originally part of the Free Worlds League until the creation of The Republic. Alhena 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.
 Alhena was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Alhena joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
