The new homeworld of the Federation Kazleti is generally considered a balmy, attractive planet and is a popular tourist destination. Earth-like in its size and characteristics, it is warm with relatively mild seasons and diverse biospheres. The Kazleti have been careful stewards of their new homeworld, building their cities and towns in harmony with the natural landscape, and the orbital shipyards are often visible to the naked eye at night.
