  • A Mars-like planet located in the Lyshan system, Lyshan III is a small mineral-rich world located just outside of its stars' habitable zone. Due to its small size and the cold temperature afforded to it by its relative position in the solar system, Lyshan III has a naturally thin atmosphere because atmospheric particles do not have enough gravity to keep them contained in orbit of the planet. Terraforming efforts have been underway over the past five years which have restored the once-dry oceans, atmospheric oxygen levels, and slightly raised the surface temperature, however the process is ongoing and the planet is currently uninhabitable without special environmental protection. Lyshan III has one small barren moon which is tidal locked.

  • Initially discovered as a barren, dry, and dusty world, it was soon discovered that Lyshan II contained a plethora of uridium ore deposits several kilometers below the surface crust. The planet is strategically located along the Federation-Cardassian border, and has proven to be an invaluable source of uridium which is used for Cardassian starship construction. Lyshan III is a join-mining colony composed of UFP and Cardassian Union laborers, and it represents the latest post-Dominion War trade cooperation agreements between the Cardassian Union and the UFP.
