The mining efforts on Pike are a masterpiece of Human engineering. One of the most mineral rich planets in the galaxy, Pike is dotted with thousands of unmanned "cities" churning out tons of platinum, mercury, iron and gold every day. With three times the orbital period of Aero, Pike is still incapable of sustaining human life for an extended duration. Regardless, the lack of atmospheric storms and other weather events means that fully mobile robot machinery can operate with peak efficiency while requiring very little downtime. The mines and refineries of Pike have been essential to fueling Terra's expansion and allowing Terra III itself to remain relatively untouched.
(It is unknown why the Starmap lists this planet as Habitable.)
Tidally locked, the far side of this moon features heavy scarring from frequent impacts.
