Star Wars - Among the Stars
The resort moon of Dorumaa, which orbits Almas, would be utterly uninhabitable were it not for terraforming technology. It has become one of the more popular tourist attractions in the Mid Rim, and it’s certainly the most popular one in all of the Cularin system.
Dorumaa was once an inner planet in the system. When a massive impact knocked it out of its orbit, it settled into an orbit over Almas. After its traumatic exit from its orbit, Dorumaa’s distance from the suns flash-froze the fresh water seas on the surface of the planet, along with everything that lived below. After it was terraformed, Dorumaa’s atmosphere warmed, and the ice melted into expansive crystal-blue oceans stretching over eighty-five percent of the moon’s surface. Scientists quickly sculpted the other fifteen percent of the surface into tropical islands, and construction began on the resorts.
The Dorumaa Investment Group assumed anything that might have lived on Dorumaa was long-dead. Unfortunately, it was wrong. Any creature that had been living during the explosion died when the seas flash-froze. However, many of the life forms had laid eggs in the sea floor. As the seas thawed and grew warmer, the eggs came back to life. The indigenous creatures of Dorumaa were reborn. While the investors have turned this into a marketing tool, even the senior investors sometimes worry about what may lie beneath the waves.
