The Polaris Galaxy wiki last edited by flowersnf on 11/17/13 11:56AM View full history

Overview

The Polaris Galaxy is a star system consisting of 11 sectors and 28 planets. It was first introduced in

Tools of Destruction

, where the majority of the galaxy was controlled by

Tachyon

. It also hosted the great war, between the

Lombaxes

and the Cragmites. The resulting battle caused both races to nearly become extinct, but seems to have recovered for the most part, except for Fastoon, which is still in ruins. The galaxy also experienced problems with space pirates, with

Captain Slag

running many illicit activities.

Tachyons Gelatonium plant

Planet Cobalia

Cobalia also known as the "Gel Capital of the

Polaris

galaxy", is a swamp planet best known for being the

Polaris Galaxy

's richest source of

Gelatonium

, the most commonly used spacecraft fuel in the galaxy.

GrummelNet

's famous

Confuzzler Gas

was dervired from the seeds of the

Cobalian Worm Plant

.

Basilisk Leviathans

are commonly found in caves and jungles on Cobalia.

When Emperor Percival Tachyon took over Cobalia, he gained control over the largest source of Gelatonium in the galaxy, making the rest of the galaxy dependent on Tachyon's rationing of Gelatonium fuel for all interstellar travel.

Stratus City

Planet Kortog

Kortog is home to

Stratus City

which is a city that was suspended high above the planet. It is a part of

Tachyon

's empire and used to be the Educational District of the Polaris Galaxy before Tachyon invaded. You will get a new gadget called

Robo-Wings

on this planet. The city is full of robo-wing launchers that the player could fly anywhere in the city and explore.Its famed hall of knoledge is said to hold the secrets of the Great War and the history of both the Lombaxes and Cragmites. However, the hall of knoledge has been strictly off limits after Tachyon conquered the city.

This was where Ratchet and Clank discover a Lombax planet called Fastoon. The otherwise reddish color was probably let off by the number of red coloured architechture throughout the planet, along with amount of red-coloured gases seen throughout the cities.

A destroyed Lombax city

Planet Fastoon

Planet Fastoon was once the homeworld of the Lombax race and is desert planet. The planet was ravaged by Tachyon's Drophyd troopers and his Enforcers who mercilessly decimated the Planet years ago when Ratchet was just a child. The planet is now solely occupied by Nanophyte scavengers. The scavengers look for the any pieces of lombax technology that hasnt been destroyed.

Ratchet comes here in an esacape pod so he has to find a new ship to get off the planet. It is here where they find the Lombax engineered fighter, Aphelion who tells them a bit more about the fate of the Lombaxes

The imperial Fight Festival

Planet Mukow

Mukow is a stormy aquatic planet in the

Cerullean Sector

. It was home to

Emperor Percival Tachyon

's

Imperial Fight Festival

, an exclusive battle resort for Tachyon's most elite

Drophyd

troopers. Tachyon used the Fight Festival as a means to both entertain his troops, to capture his enemies or lure them into fighting to their deaths. At such an occasion, Tachyon put the

Holo Pirate Disguise

as a prize in the Festival in hopes of luring

Captain Slag

there to his doom.

Surrounding the gladiator arena of the Fight Festival was a large carnival park. The carnival park featured things such as a large and deathly ferris wheel and Emperor Tachyon's Trail of Turning Terror. The area near the entrance to the arena was heavily guarded by non-vacationing Drophyd troops and Enforcers.

Fighting on the asteroids

Nundac Asteroid Ring

The Nundac Asteroid Ring is the location to

Apogee Space Station

where

Ratchet

and

Clank

meet

Talwyn

,

Cronk

, and

Zephyr

. This was also the place where the

Zoni

give

Clank

the

Geo-Laser

Gadget

. This area is also a Basilisk breeding ground and has a good source of

raritanium

and some small

gel

sources. The asteroids in the ring are all named after the Greek alphabet. The Smuggler is here and he will trade you bolts for killing basilisks.

There are pirates on Ardolis

Planet Ardolis

Ardolis is a water filled planet with some cliffs sticking out from the seas and the planet and was home to the

pirate base

. On this planet,

Ratchet

and

Clank

attempted to explore the base in hope to find the

Lombax secret

.

They find a mysterious Lombax artifact that only Ratchet can activate. However, this turned out to not be Lombax secret, instead it is a map to another planet.

which only turned out to be coordinates to another planet. Ratchet and Clank first met

Captain Slag

and his right-hand man

Rusty Pete

on Ardolis.

Verdigris Sector

The lava Refineris

Planet Rykan V

This volcanic wastleland was site of Lombax activity in previous years. This is why Tachyon took over this planet to search for Lombax tech. The lava refineries of Rykan V are the source of the metals used in most advanced weapons and armor in the galaxy. After retrieving the artifact from the planet

Ardolis

, it showed the Rykan V globe hologram where

Ratchet

,

Clank

, and their new allies

Talwyn

,

Cronk

and

Zephyr

could find the

Lombax Secret

. .

When the heroes found the door for any

Lombax

return, they found a movie tape that told that the Lombax Secret was a gadget called the

Dimensionator

.

There are dinosaurs on Sargasso

Planet Sargasso

Planet Sargasso is a dangerous and mostly uninhabitable primordial swampland. The planet was infested with large, deadly creatures who would quickly make a snack out of any unwary Lombax explorer. The only advanced race known to travel to the planet were the fiercely territorial

Kerchu

. Being advanced architects, they had built Gelatonium Derricks, refineries, and gel plants to take advantage of the large amounts accessable, plus the fact that the planet was not yet under Imperial control.

The Lombax race once had a Testing Facility for all their latest weapons and gadgets, the most notable being the Dimensionator.

The IRIS

Kreeli Comet

The Kreeli Comet is a

comet

and the location to the

IRIS

Supercomputer but was taken over by

Captain Slag

and his

Robot Pirates

. It is an icy comet, with caves and caverns.

The IRIS Supercomputer is the most ancient and powerful computer in the galaxy. Who created it and why has been long forgotten, but IRIS continues to be used as a form of intergalactic encyclopaedia and oracle. Some believe that the sheer computing power and massive storage of this supercomputer give the eerie ability to predict the future. The computer has been stolen by space pirates so you have to fight and sneak your way through the comet to access the computer.

Zordoom Prison

Planet Viceron

Viceron was the dismal planet where treacherous

Zordoom Prison

was located. There were constant breakouts which were hunted down by the guards stationed on the planet. Many of the past enemies and "bad" characters of past Ratchet and Clank games had been jailed here like

Dr. Nefarious

,

Ace Hardlight

, and

Slim Cognito

.

The planet itself is very dark with murky waters and dark brown rocks. There wasn't alot of vegetation and it seemed uninhabited, besides the prisoners and imperials. The majority of the area was water with tall rocks coming out, where the Zordoom prison was built on that was large enough to be seen from orbit.

Kerchu City

Planet Jasindu

Planet Jasindu in

Praxus Sector

was a jungle planet that was the home of the

Kerchu

species, with

Kerchu City

on the planet being the capital of the Kerchu domain. GrummelNet's Intergalactic travel guide considered Jasindu the worst vacation spot in the Polaris galaxy due to the Kerchu's habit of killing any outsiders who wandered into their building sites. The planet was rich with Gelatonium, and the Kerchu have several underground Gelatonium plants near Kerchu City.

After finding the

Dimensionator

on

Rykan V

,

Max Apogee

relocated it in Kerchu City to keep it away from Captain Slag. What happened to Max was unknown, but the Kerchu of Kerchu City were later guarding the Dimensionator.

Captain Slag

Ublik Passage

The Ublik Passage was the location of

Slag's Fleet

. This was where

Ratchet

and

Clank

defeated

Captain Slag

. The Ublik Passage was previously used for connection between the

Praxus

and

Verdigris Sectors

, however after being taken over by

Slag's Fleet

it was unaccessable.The Slag's Fleet in

Ublik Passage

was an inhospitable space station where the pirates docked there ships. Here

Ratchet

fought

Slag's

army of robot pirates, including

Swabs

and two

Rogues

. He also had to fight many pirates and a ship raid while on a pirate ship.

Slags Base

Cragmite ruins

Planet Reepor

Reepor was the

Cragmite

home world that had been dormant for years thanks to the

Lombaxes

. It was home to the

Cragmite Ruins

. They encountered

Emperor Percival Tachyon

who had the

Dimensionator

and used it to bring back the Cragmites.

Ratchet

and

Clank

got seperated and had to regroup

Talwyn

,

Cronk

, and

Zephyr

.

The planet itself was very dark and creepy looking. The "water" was green in color, and most of the plants and soil was black (making it look very dark and burnt from orbit).

Planet Igilak

Igliak is a

planet

in the

Praxus Sector

of

Polaris

, orbiting a radioactive

sun

and was the home of

Meridian City

, the capital of

Free Polaris

. Meridian City is probably the largest city of the galaxy as well, well comparable with

Metropolis

of the

Solana

galaxy and

Megapolis

of the

Bogon

galaxy.

During the Great War of Polaris, the warbot Zephyr was stationed in the Zenith Outpost in Meridian City. Later, during the perilous Phylax intrusion, he was joined by another warbot named Cronk, who later became his lifetime partner. The two were later sent on a mission to secure a Gelatonium Refinery on the planet to be able to transport fuel to the Meridian Armory. The refinery was infested by undead zombie dung dragons created by Igliak's radioactive sun.

Drogol Sector

_______________________________________________________

The bay of Hoolefar island

Merdegraw

a tropical planet in the

Drogol Sector

of the

Polaris

galaxy. It was unregulated by both

Tachyon

's

Cragmite

Empire and Free Polaris because of the thriving pirate activity on it. The planet was home to the locations:

Hoolefar Island

,

Morrow Caverns

and

Darkwater Cove

. The enormous ocean separating all these areas was called the

Azorean Sea

.

The primary sentient species of Merdegraw were purple, reptilian beings known as Hoolefoids. The caves of Merdegraw are also inhabited by Heliogrubs, small creatures that glow in the dark when they are afraid, and more notoriously, Pythors, large, fire-spitting monsters resembling the Basilisk Leviathan.
