Speech recorded of Marshal Zux Trigurd of the Gualarian Black Ops corps. debriefing of a mission to raid Airbase 11, a Zetraugian Airbase that has been held since the Zavta Party ruled:
MZT: Alright men! your next mission will be a basic one, and we are hoping it will be by the book unlike the previous raids. The base you will be raiding is an airbase known as "Airbase 11"
A hologram pops up showing a Sandy-white planet about Class 3 size (like Venus).
Seargent (classified): Okay, so we know what planet looks like, but where will the airbase be?
MZT: That's the thing, the planet is the Airbase.
Classified: pardon my asking, but could you enlighten us?
MZT: of course. This Planet's name is unknown, one of the many planets whose history was lost to the Molniya Wars.

All the trees were burned for fuel in their Megafurnaces, the Water was shipped off world to their other factories, and the inhabitants were either deported to Weapons Factories or killed, mostly the latter. However, before the Hornets(1) could begin Factorizing (the molniya method of creating a planet sized weapon factory), the Coalition of Planets had launched the Great Raid and the Hornets had only dug their heels into the soil and hadn't built any major base. As part of the Great Raid, the Quibites had launched an attack on the planet as a diversion for the main attack on key Molniya Worlds. When the war ended and the Molniya Hive was destroyed, the Quibite Empire claimed the planet for their Empire. Unfortunately, Their Economy was in turmoil due to the Molniya wars. So the Zetraugians, who were in a bloody civil war, decided to purchase the planet from the Quibites. due to the planet not being suitable for colonization, and lacking the money terraform the planet, the Military would eventually begin building multiple airbases on the planet, to the point that they were all interconnected and the planet was nicknamed Airbase 11.
Classified: OK, Good to know.
MZT: yes, now back to the-
