Egen Burren, a male Povini.
Planet of Origin:
History[edit | edit source]
- While they were a warp-capable civilization, the Povini remained on their homeworld and had no colonies or allies in the neighboring systems. Various factions fought amongst themselves from time to time, leading many Povini to fear they were on a brink of a global war.
- In 2410, when Tzenkethi forces entered the system and threatened to annihilate all life on Povin, the Povini put aside all their disputes and worked together to fight the alien invasion. They assembled a fleet of about fifty ships which consisted of not only military vessels, but also mining vessels, science vessels and luxury crafts. The Tzenkethi showed no mercy as they obliterated Povini starships, continuing with their attack even after the Povini signaled their surrender. During the battle, a Tzenkethi landing party beamed onto the surface of Povin and activated a protomatter bomb, destroying all life and rendering the planet uninhabitable.
- One of the vessels, the Bastion, survived the battle and was found by the Alliance and L.S.S. Reskava. Alliance members offered to assist the surviving Povini, and gave them coordinates of the Deep Space K-13, a nearby station where they would be safe.
- Eventually, the Lukari Concordium offered to help the Povini restore the biosphere on their homeworld as part of the Lukari Restoration Initiative. However, the Povini Council was unable to reach a decision whether they should reestablish Povin as it was during their "Golden Age" or as it was before the Tzenkethi attack.
