The high temperatures and high atmospheric pressures at sea level prompted many of the early settlers
who came to Wing to establish their cities and colonies on the planet's rocky mountains and high plateaus. Many
of these colonists also found these locales somewhat easier for maintaining steady communications with the mining
outposts built on all four of the world's moons, all of which are heavily laced with valuable ores, including titanium,
bauxite, and even germanium. It was the moons of Wing that truly drew the crowds to this world, rather than the
in habitability of the planet below, but the discovery of a world capable of supporting life was seen as a definite
plus to the corporations that funded the first expeditions here. This resource-rich system was quickly incorporated
into the Free Worlds League before the expanding Federation of Skye could stake a claim here, but with the rise
of the Terran Hegemony and the Free Worlds' admission into the original Star League, this world became a joint
holding between Houses Marik and Cameron. Wing's industry made it a border trading post and relay station for
Hegemony and Free Worlds traffic alike. After the fall of the Star League, Wing reverted to complete Free
Worlds authority, only to be captured by House Steiner's Lyran Commonwealth during an early offensive. The
Free Worlds League reclaimed Wing in 2917, but in the centuries of the Succession Wars, constant raids and the
changing of hands eventually took their toll on this planet. By the mid-thirty-first century, over half the planet's
Star League-era settlements and mining outposts on all four moons were lost forever, decimating the planetary
economy and seriously impairing off-world trade. The worst, however, came during the Jihad, when renegade
Marik troops, duped by the Word of Blake, launched an ill-fated assault on the Lyran Alliance's Skye region.
The assaults and counter assaults that followed slammed through Wing and over several other border worlds,
devastating military and civilian targets alike. Although the world was returned to Free Worlds authority, more
accurately, the authority of the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth, it was so ravaged by the fighting during the Jihad
that the planet was willingly ceded, along with several others, to Devlin Stone's Republic of the Sphere. Under
Republic control, much has been done for the world's recovery, with several relocated mining conglomerates
eagerly investing in the restoration of facilities on the moons of Wing. The recovery has also added a surge of new
residents and citizens who have rebuilt and expanded several of the planet's more prominent cities. A new
movement to exploit the resources of Wing itself is also underway, thanks to the recent discovery of crude oil
deposits in some of the lowland regions on the northern Glyph continent. The planetary capital of Wing, Crow's
Nest, is located on the southern continent of Sharr. Crow's Nest also includes a large spaceport, but not the
planet's largest one. That honor goes to Port Wyvern, the massive DropShip landing and servicing complex on
the south polar continent of Greinwald, around which the city of Wyvern has grown.
Wing was originally part of the Free Worlds League until the creation of The Republic. Wing 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.
 Wing was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Wing joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
