Lae'nas III is the homeworld of the re-awakened Preservers and under the protection of the Deferi and the Federation/Klingon Empire. The planet is notable for the Preserver Archive that contains the ancients' knowledge and hundreds of Preserver individuals and which is located on a small island or peninsula. The climate is similar to Defera's. There are two anomalies on the surface and two more in the subterranean Archive.
History[edit | edit source]
- In ancient times, the system is a shelter for the Preservers, the oldest known sentient species. They create an underground library, the Archive, on Lae'nas III.
- During the Dominion War the Dominion has a base in the system but abandon it afterwards.
- In recent times, the system is under control of the Alpha Jem'Hadar, who have taken over this base. Their control ends violently in 2409. At this time, the Deferi Science Council has studied this planet already for decades.
Missions involved[edit | edit source]
- “Cold Storage”: In 2409, the Breen Confederacy drives out the Jem'Hadar and competes with Starfleet and the KDF for the discovery of the Preservers' secrets, which ultimately turns out to be a library guarded by the Archivist. After the defeat of Thot Trel and his thugs the Deferi begin a joint reasearch operation with the Federation and the Empire.
- “Blood of Ancients”: In 2410, the Iconian Heralds attack the system, and an Iaidon Dreadnought bombards the surface of Lae'nas III to wipe out the Preservers and their archive.
