 distinct features 

Planet Zebes exhibits a substantial sub-surface hollow crust extending several miles, primarily composed of Urthic ore. Additionally, subterranean seas contribute to the geological characteristics of this celestial body. The planet's surface is enveloped by a persistent and optically dense cloud layer, hindering satellite observations and consistently obscuring the majority of the world when viewed from space.

  planetary history             


Situated within the FS-176 system, the discovery of Planet Zebes is characterized by an unusual sequence of events. Having been found on starcharts for many years it was never formally surveyed due to its distance far removed from galactic trade routes. it was not until the planet was serendipitously stumbled upon by the freighter pilot Hakro Zebeth. While navigating off established trade routes, Zebeth encountered a sizable planet absent from prior navigational charts. Distressed and disoriented, Zebeth transmitted a distress signal, introducing the enigmatic planetary entity. Subsequent to this transmission, Zebeth and his crew ceased communication, a mysterious trend observed in various other instances involving spacefarers visiting Planet Zebes.


  planetary geology             


Planet Zebes, upon meticulous examination, reveals an intricate subterranean structure comprising expansive caverns and labyrinths, progressively increasing in scale with depth. Though the survey teams have not reached the planet's core due to formidable heat, these subterranean layers remain largely unexplored. Notably, the Brinstar region within Zebes' depths hosts more than 60% of the planet's diverse wildlife, featuring unique species exclusive to this locale.


Moreover, the planet exhibits substantial sub-surface water reservoirs, concealed beneath acidic pools visible from space. Designated as Maridia, this aquatic realm manifests intricate spiraling patterns eroding the land, creating expansive and occasionally perilous water mazes. The relentless erosion also results in the formation of treacherous quicksand traps, underscoring the dynamic geological processes shaping Zebes' subterranean landscape.


  biological assessment         


Zebes sustains a remarkably diverse array of life forms, ranging from colossal molten rock-based creatures to diminutive airborne organisms emitting their own luminescence, thereby illuminating their surroundings. Life proliferates ubiquitously, with instances of rocks exhibiting mobility to avoid disturbance. A comprehensive catalog of Zebes' life forms is detailed in a separate file. Additionally, intriguing remnants of a past civilization suggest a once thriving society, yet no extant specimens have been discovered to date.
