Akeen (2708 Gateway B66A232-B): Capital of the
Akeena Union, and homeworld
of the minor non-human
race known as the Akeed. A water world, Akeen possesses several large islands
and numerous island chains, the home environment of the enigmatic alien
culture. The Akeed themselves feed on minerals drawn directly from soil
and water, and appear to be as happy living under the water as on the land.
Though human contact with the Akeed occurs only on land or in space, it
is believed that the race has an extensive marine culture. The extent of
this culture, its tech level, and other accomplishments are unknown.
The population, government, law and tech level UWP codes
refer to the human orbital colony called Sky, together with human enclaves
on the planet's surface. The population of the Akeed is unknown, and their
law and government systems are largely unintelligible to human observers.
Their tech level, based on observations of their ship technology and electronics,
is generally set at ten(A). They possess Jump-drive ships, but acquired
them from humans early in the sector's
history. -gat MTJ 4
