Epsilon Gruis I-A
|Epsilon Gruis Ia|
Spathi Refugee Colony
Epsilon Gruis Ia, the only natural satellite of Spathiwa, is the place where Spathi (and the Safe Ones, their Ruling Council) live during the events of Star Control II, having done so for about 300 years after their homeworld was invaded by the carnivorous Evil Ones.
This Pellucid World, deemed inhospitable, cold and airless by the Spathi, is protected by planetary defense batteries and houses the Umgah Caster, confiscated by the Spathi some time ago after the Umgah had played their pranks (Jud the Ineffable Vug, Killmaster 18, the Grand Master Planet Eaters and impersonating Dogar and Kazon) with it.
Should The Captain eradicate the Evil Ones from the face of Spathiwa, the Spathi refugees, in three months, return to Spathiwa, abandoning the satellite (and leaving behind the Umgah Caster as a present for The Captain).
