The Aelas System is currently used solely as a door to Foundry-missions.
System Description[edit | edit source]
The Aelas system is home to the Aelaseans, an advanced, warlike race that rejected almost all technology in an effort to end the battles that were threatening to permanently divide their people. The Aelaseans now use a tribal structure, and have divided themselves into groups of mostly hunter-gatherers and those that mine topaline, which is one of the planet's major resources.
Although the system would seem to be ripe for conquest by the Romulan military, they keep a respectful distance from the Aelasean homeworld. It is unknown if there is a treaty in place, or if the Romulans are wary of technology that the Aelaseans may have saved from their days as a power in the region.
Missions formerly involved[edit | edit source]
- “Saturday's Child”: The Federation, the Romulan Star Empire and the Klingon Empire compete for the topaline found on Aelas IV. The Romulans are defeated during a three-way battle while representatives of Starfleet and the Klingons, Fleet Admiral Leonard James Akaar and Captain Ja'rod of the I.K.S. Kang, respectively, use diplomacy to convince the Aelasan Elder Chief to provide access to the topaline. The Chief Elder orders them to compete in the destruction of the Sky Demon. Starfleet succeeds in driving off the Klingons and eliminating the comet and a treaty between the Aelasans and the Federation is signed.
