Crion (Caliban II) is a small terrerstrial rocky planet in the green band of Caliban. It was a small terraformed world formerly inhabited by millions of Humans. In late 29th century, Vanduul invaded and devastated the system.[1] Now Vanduul harvesters chew through the remnants of Human civilization.[2]

History

Crion was terraformed and populated as part of the Empire's 'western front.'[3]

The Planet was conquered in 2884 as the UEE forces abandoned the system due to a massive invasion of Vanduul forces.[3]

"Vast swaths of land have been harvested by passing Vanduul Clans, who enter the system and drop their horrific machines to the surface. As they continue to consume former cities and the land itself to rebuild their fleet, experts say it will only be a matter of time till all traces of Humanity are wiped clean."
