Planets List
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Ba'ku1

An M class planet located in the Briar Patch. The planet had a ring system which was loaded with metaphasic radiation; the effect of this was to grant exceptionally long life to the inhabitants of the planet. It was the site of a Ba'ku settlement of about 600 people who had fled their original home world fearing that their species was on a path to self-destruction. The Ba'ku favoured a simple pastoral lifestyle, eschewing most forms of technology.1

Eventually a group of Ba'ku became dissilusioned with this mode of living and left the planet, with the result that they began to age normally. They dubbed themselves the Son'a. In 2375 the Son'a, in collusion with the Federation, attempted to harvest the ring system of the metaphasic radiation to regain their youth.1
