The mineral-rich planet Benet III served as a place of industry, a base for military forces and as a home to a hearty, stubborn populace--a people who survived the Succession Wars, the FedCom Civil War and the Jihad, only to all but wiped out by the fickle planet itself. In Touring the Stars: Benet III, players learn about the planet's constant volcanic and seismic activity, as well as the infamous "Death Mists" that eventually led to the disastrous end of Benet III.
