Famous Planets

Made in Vetitice!

The planet Vetitice is well-known for its luxury parking meters.

Vetitice is also renowned as the home of GASEC, the manufacturer and supplier of Coriolis, Dodo and Ico space stations. Travellers visit Vetitice from all over the eight galaxies to witness the construction of these massive structures. (Famous Planets OXP)

Dark Rainbow OXP

Skavurzka Shipyards, a semi-private enterprise associated to the Communist government of Vetitice and strategically located at the center of Galaxy I, has been recently making a non-standard inroad into the high-end ship market.

Details have been somewhat sketchy (no press-release up to the moment), although the availability of the new Dark Rainbow ship is indeed confirmed.

From what we could gather up from various undisclosed sources, it seems that the Caduceus class of ships, ooniversally known for its somewhat mysterious biotech nature, has spawned a higher-specced version of itself. The mysterious-clad 'Homunculus' word - floating around in some muffled talks around the Ooniverse's underground hubs - comes to mind. However, in practical terms, little (if anything at all) is known, up to the moment, about such mythical offspring of the original mighty vessel.

However, and back to our real world, one sure fact is that Boris Ripoffski, the lead designer from the Spaceship Research & Design Bureau of the Communist Cevege government, and seemingly a strong admirer of Udian Shulth's work, has managed to coach what originally was a somewhat spontaneous cellular mutation into a more meaningful variation of a Caduceus. And the ongoing interchange of ideas and technology among the multiple Communist worlds of Galaxy I came to fruition onto the corresponding new ship variation coming out from Skavurzka Shipyards.

On behalf of the Vetitician Tourist Board I would like to welcome you to Vetitice.

It is unlikely you have visited us before, as Coriolis to Surface transport has been restricted during the political upheaval caused by the 3174 Revolution. Our new government has been officially recognised by the Galactic Co-operative of worlds and we are pleased to welcome visitors to our world again. 

The History of Vetitice

The Escape from Anarlaqu

The planet Vetitice was first colonised in 2663 by refugees from nearby Anarlaqu, fleeing the Great Revolt of the mid-25th century, decimating the population and resulting in the Anarlquan hegemony being divided into the feudal caste system which survives to this day.

The colonists were mostly of Western extraction, primarily from Western Europe, Earth, although a large group of planetary engineers and their families from Zaonce had been caught on-planet during the Revolt and chose to flee on the last surviving colony craft. The story of the evacuation and flight is worthy of note, a truly heroic tale of courage both in escaping both the Revolutionary and Government forces and in making the thirty hyperspace jumps, any of which could have been fatal without TraffCon guidance.

The New World

The refugees arrived on the 24th January 2663, and established the settlement at Newbegin, where the Alph river flows through rolling grassland to the sea, some sixteen kilometres distant.

Vetitice is a warm world, slightly smaller and closer to it's primary than Old Earth, and is geologically almost a billion years older. It has a single moon of about 300 miles diameter, which appears from the surface as an unusually bright star.

Time and geology has created wide plains and rolling hills, with very few of the mountain ranges found on the younger planets. The land covers some 26% of the planet's surface, consisting of two major continents near the equator, a large island on the 60° line, approximately the size of Earth's Greenland. The polar ice caps have no land beneath them, and population above the 70° line is limited. Major geological activity is limited to a band of mountain ranges in the centre of the minor continent, Landfall, and a large subsea trench in the Western ocean.

The colonists applied for Planetary Trusteeship in 2665, having established Newbegin as the hub of thriving agrarian community surviving a cruel winter and the usual problems encountered by all colonies. Trusteeship was granted in 2670, along with a Faraway guidance centre and GalCo-Op services to allow Vetitice access to the galaxy.

Regular trading with developing industry on Vetitice began in 2874, and the planetary economy developed rapidly enough to justify the building of a Clarke-class Space Station in 2702. Full membership of the Galactic Co-operative was also granted in 2702, the GalCo-Op embassy being the first visitors to the new station.

Vetitice industrialized rapidly by the combination of colonial zeal with off-world trade and first-class education from around the galaxy. Within twenty-five years Vetitice had proved it's technological might by being selected by GalCo-Op as the new location for the GASEC (Galactic Astronautic and Space Exploration Center) Laboratories, In 2752 GASEC Vetitice created the now-famous Coriolis Station, which replaced the Clarke-class space station as the primary off-planet habitation and trading post for the next three hundred years. Indeed, it is only within the last fifty years that orbital cities are beginning to replace the Coriolis and the more advanced 'Dodec' designs amongst the richer worlds, and even here, GASEC ingenuity is at the forefront of this new technology.


Politically, Vetitice has remained stable for most of it's existence. The original Emergency Council formed from the leadership of the flight from Anarlaqu, willingly gave up their leadership duties in 2670 in favour of a democratically elected council.

This democracy lasted for nearly 300 years. During the 2970's, local industry, seeking to maximise the profit available from Vetitice's renown for mechanical goods, computers and astronautics, had subverted government for their own ends, using bribery and patronage to repeal hampering trade restrictions and develop those wilderness lands below the 50'S line designated planetary parkland. In 2974 the public response of peaceful demonstrations against the influence of industry was put down brutally by company security forces. Civil war developed, and swept the globe over the next three years In 2977 Peter Rawlings took down the remains of the industrial-military complex and instituted a communist government on Vetitice.

To the surprise of many, the communist government succeeded in it's aims to unite the people, and promote the growth of trade and industry on Vetitice, without the spectre of political corruption and state-fostered myopia that many such governments fall into. The Galactic Co-operative of Worlds maintains a check on all planetary governments for fitness to rule, and has had no cause to complain about the Commune.


Vetitician history over the past four hundred years has carried it's share of events. Whilst being outside the struggles between the Terran Federation and the Achenar Empire, during the early days of colonisation, Vetitice was subjected to invasion from both other colonisation groups, and from pirate raiders. The most famous of these attacks occurred on 5th June 2735. The colony, now grown from it's initial 3000 inhabitants to several million, was mildly surprised to find three pirate frigates setting down on the weapons-testing range that was the closest empty land to the industrial city of Fort Snowdon. The ensuing massacre of the would-be raiders ensured that no serious attempts were ever made to attack the planet again. Until the 2974 uprising, there had been no armed conflict between groups of Vetiticians. We hope that such events will never happen again.

Parking Meters


GASEC, the renowned manufacturer of orbital stations and luxury liners is based at Vetitice. In the Vanilla game, the very first Coriolis station was designed here at the GASEC laboratories. As regards OXPs, a number of stations (Superhub) and liners (Orisis) are made here at GASECWorks.

The Traders Almanach

When cash matters more than cargo capacity, I give you this advice: You can't do anything wrong with buying memory chips here. You've got the choice to move them to Anarlaqu - in Anarlaqu, they get you a decent profit of 60 to 67% -, with Ribiso being the second choice in destinations and Xeeranre last. For bounty and glory try Anarlaqu, where dangerous pirates have been reported.
