Notable Information Edit

- Ember was a planet in the Horsehead Nebula with an exceptionally strong and unusual magnetic pull - and a danger to passing space traffic. The key to power on the colony planet in the 44th century lay with Kazran Sardick not its president.
- Actor Rory Jennings who played Tommy Connolly was living with his nan at the time in real life!
- On the human colony planet of Tara nine-tenths of the population were wiped out by a devastating plague leading to a dependence on androids because of the massive shortage in labour.
