Rahne is a small world lacking adequate water and growing seasons. Because the planet's surface is wracked by major dust storms, the need to protect exposed machinery has greatly hampered aboveground exploitation of Rahne's gems and radioactive deposits. Geologists report that Rahne originated from a planet twice its size that collided with a huge asteroid. As a result of the collision, the original planet split into Rahne and its moon, Caliban.
