Basalt is a large world with an oppressively thick atmosphere, wild lightning storms, and a high gravity field.
Despite these drawbacks, Basalt is rich in rare minerals and was one of the first planets settled by Terran mining
companies. At the end of the First Star League, the Federated Suns laid claim to Basalt and held on to the world
despite repeated Capellan raids through the early Succession Wars.

During the Forth Succession War, as part of the Capellan Confederation's Operation Riposte, Liao sent a strike
force to Basalt, to destroy warehouses storing vital supplies for the Davion offensive. In fact, the whole planet
was an elaborate trap; Davion agents had leaked false intelligence to the Capellan Maskivorka. The warehouses
weere empty, and the elite 4th Davion Guards RCT was waiting to ambush the Capellan units. Today, the
mountains around Lake Zander and the Contrassa spaceport, both on Basalt's southern continent of Garnet, are
littered with the remains of Liao BattleMechs.

The five continents of Amethyst, Garnet, Opal, Topaz, and Quartz, are almost all situated along the equatorial
region of Basalt. The capital, Manville, is located on Garnet.

[3132] Basalt was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Basalt became part of
Prefecture IV 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] Basalt was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Basalt fell under the influence of the Senate Irian territory.
