Shraak Ter is a Waterbien core world, currently controlled by the Impatinum Waterbe. It is a tectonic world, with an oxygen rich atmosphere and a wide variety of plant life. The planet's axis is tilted so there are seasons. There are no sentient species native to Shraak Ter, although there are many animals, and the Waterbe have colonized the planet. They have built several beautiful cities scattered across two of the planet's five continents. Like Shraak Du, Shraak Ter has its own WATERBIUS node buried deep underneath the capital city, Relgrath, which was itself built partially underwater. Shraak Ter's soil is very fertile, so many of the planet's citizens are farmers.

Aside from farming, the planet is also rich in a few rare minerals, which are mined and exported. This is also the planet where the Waterbe found the warp drive blueprints (which were later reverse engineered by WATERBIUS to construct the Mintam warpcraft), and the site where the warp drive was located has become a huge monument.

Name Edit

The etymology of the name of Shraak Ter is simple, coming from the Valenic Waterbien words for the star it orbits ("Shraak") and its position in the Shraakas Humla ("Ter").

Biosphere Edit

Shraak Ter's biosphere is a conflict between those of two worlds: the native Shraak Ter biosphere, and the imported Unistarchean biosphere. The two came from a common descendent, and began diverging around three hundred million years ago; there are remnants of an earlier, proto-Shraak Ter Biosphere, comprising some primitive plant-like forms and signs of early animals, in the fossil record, but it was completely removed by the subsequent Shraak Ter biosphere.

The second biosphere was one only of plants, the early animal life in Shraak Ter poisoned by changing ocean composition, which outcompeted the local biosphere and expanded to fill every niche.

When Waterbe colonised Shraak Ter, they found it receptive to Unistarchean life, and genetically modified Unistarchean plants now cover the landscape, with animals from Unistarch also making an appearance. The native biosphere is consigned to isolated areas, and is in danger of disappearing entirely.
