Planetary Base-class • NONE • Task Force 86

The Sheo System is located Southwest of Farpoint Station near the Breen Confederacy borders and was discovered by the USS Walker on their deep space exploration mission. Starfleet shows tremendous interest in Sheo III, as preliminary scans indicated it to be prosperous in natural resources that could contribute to Starfleet Corps Engineers. Plus, the strategic position near the Breen Confederacy, Ferengi Alliance, and First Federation is a beneficial boost to current and future diplomacy.

Sheo III is a humid, earth-like planet with various wildlife and jungle-like plants. Earlier scans did indicate volcanic activities in various areas. The USS Walker has concluded that there is no intelligent life found on this planet that could prevent any colonization attempt that might conflict with the prime directive. The mission directive states that Sheo III will be primarily a mining colony, with a secondary objective to make a more noticeable presence of Starfleet in the future that would contribute to further exploration or diplomatic missions.

Outpost Houtman staff will stand for the challenge to tame the beast known now as Sheo III. Sheo III will not easily give in as the planet is tremor sensitive, its fauna is an unknown factor, wild creatures roam the night, and its weather is unpredictable, from sunny to heavy storms. But will the price of the mining ore be enough to sustain life? However, the area is not as safe as it might seem. Will the Breen accept their presence? Will the Ferengi stay dormant and let the Federation do its thing, or will they take a bite of the pie? How will the First Federation respond to their new neighbors?

Sheo System

The Sheo System contains five worlds with a blue dwarf as its star.

  • Sheo I is a giant rocky planet with extremely high temperatures.
  • Sheo II is a more toxic planet due to its lethal atmosphere.
  • Sheo III is a humid earth-like planet that is habitable for colonization.
  • Sheo IV is a rocky planet with extreme storms razing over it.
  • Sheo V is a giant gas planet.
