History of the Galaxy

The Solana Galaxy is both the largest and most featured galaxy in the whole Ratchet and Clank series, containing nearly 60 areas to visit. Many of the planets within the galaxy have come under threat throughout the series from the start, since Ratchet's home planet of Veldin was almost destroyed by Chairman Drek, in the very first game.
In Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal, many of the galaxy's inhabitants were turned into robots, as Dr. Nefarious attempted to eliminate all natural living beings. In Ratchet: Deadlocked, Ratchet, Clank and Big Al are forced to take part in Gleeman Vox's Dreadzone TV show, in the Shadow Sector on the outer rim of the galaxy.
The types and climates of the planets within the galaxy vary greatly, from the large, skyscraper filled Metropolis to the tropical jungle of Florana.
The galaxy is protected and ruled by President Phyronix. Although not directly involved in combat, he is responsible for organising missions, relying on Ratchet, Clank, the Galactic Rangers and his own daughter, Sasha. The base for the Q-Force, the Starship Phoenix, is also owned by the galaxy's defence force.
The Galaxy also has its own government, which determines laws and punishments, in one case, handed Captain Qwark a 6 billion Bolt fine, after complaints were received about the personal hygiene products he endorsed. Although all planets are under the jurisdiction of the Galactic Government, some are owned and run by various businesses and companies such as Gadgetron.



Planets and Locations in the Solana Galaxy

Aquatos

The sewers on Aquatos
An ocean planet in the Solana Galaxy. It was the home planet of the famed superheroine Hydro Girl and supposedly guarded by the Aquatos National Protection Force. The citizens of Aquatos mostly resided inside underwater bases, where vast networks of tubes and tunnels were found. The planet was completely covered in water so all life is underwater, it is unknown wether this has always been like that. The massive sewers of Aquatos were often crawling with Amoeboids, possibly stationed there by Dr. Nefarious.

Aridia

Skidd stranded on Aridia
A virtually inhospitable desert world on which all structures built there seemed to sink into mud. There was very little vegetation to speak of on this planet. The few inhabitants lived on Outposts scattered around the planet. Tar seemed to cover much of the planet. Factories were some of the main workable places there, because not much can survive in the odd desert filled with mud, Sandsharks, and other things.

Grind rails on Batalia
A lush rain forest world and the most heavily guarded planet in Solana. Dominated by massive forts and huge arsenals of weaponry, it is the perfect defense.

The only weak spot in Batalia's forces were its grunts. Unused to a life of warfare, they were poised to desert at any moment.The weather on Batalia was very wet, with constant heavy rain.

  • Ratchet and Clank

 
 

Bogia 4

Also known as Trachea Five, is an uninhabited swamp world that somehow received it's own Gadgetron outlet. Engineering blamed marketing, marketing blamed legal and legal were on vacation on Bahamia.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando


 


Calzon

Calzon
A planet in the Solana Galaxy, presumably well populated, since there was a chancellor and a councel on the planet.

While Captain Starshield went on a routine visit to Calzon, the evil Baron Masseter had plans to destroy the planet with his giant space cruiser. However, Captain Starshield managed to destroy Masseter's ship seconds before it vaporized the planet. This made Calzon, like many other planets, grateful to Captain Starshield.


  • Not refrenced or visited in any game, However, It did appear in a comic book that advertised Ratchet: Deadlocked



Catacrom Four

Catacrom four

Catacrom Four laid deep in the Shadow Sector and was filled with ancient ruins. In actuality it was a robot burial ground, so travelers had to be careful about robot zombies poking their heads above ground level and taking a swipe at them. Due to its status as a burial ground, Catacrom Four likely hosted only a minimal living population. Catacrom Four is full of surprises, both on the surface and beneath. It is also DreadZone's starter course and where Ace Hardlight killed Captain Starshield.

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked



Challax

A technomite trooper

A "not too hospitable" desert planet with several large mountains and very few plants. Unknown to most people, Challax was the home planet to the mysterious Technomite species. Challax is guarded by a mysterious defence fleet of space fortresses built by the Technomites, known as the Technomite Orbital Facilities. The Technomites, who have seemingly abandoned most other planets they used to live on, live in a small city hidden near the few plants of the planet. "Small" is a very literal word here, since the Technomites are around the size of a thumb, and the city cannot be accessed by those who don't have a shrink ray to shrink themselves.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters


Daxx



The Research Center
Daxx was the home of Dr. Nefarious's research laboratory, where the Bio-Annihilator and the Bio-Bliterator were built, amongst others such as the Rainbow Afrolizer. Ratchet and Clank explored Daxx to find more intelligence on Dr. Nefarious. The facility was also used to edit Courtney Gears's music video "Robots Must Be Free", and where it was discovered that the pop singer was in Nefarious' league. Daxx was mostly water and was very green with many large, vicious looking plants. There were many small, rocky islands in the sea area where objects were built. The research base was situated on a high elevated island in the center of the ocean.

Dayni Moon

The Dayni Moon

The Dayni Moon is best known for its agricultural facilities. Robot Farmers grew a wide variety of crops, and raised the famous one-legged Dayni Weresheep.

Hydrano

Qwark in the desert

A planet in Solana that was half-water and desert. Klunk's secret base was also there deep underwater. Clank explored here to find the underwater base's coordinates and he also defeated Klunk here. The climate was arid, but only half of the planet was dry land because the other half was ocean, due to the dam that stretched across the entire planet.


  • Secret Agent Clank

Joraal Nebula


The Joraal Nebula, home to Zeldrin Starport, was where Dr. Nefarious had waited for ten years in his starcruiser, the Leviathan. Any ships that strayed too close to the starcruiser were disintegrated. This is where Dr.Nefarious refueled his starcruisers and also where he lived.

  • Ratchet and Clank


Kalidon

Kalidon

A planet long inhabited by Technomites. As Kalidon is a barren and not very pleasant location, it is not considered suitable for any permanant residence. Instead, the planet was used by the Technomites to be the site of the Mechanoid Factory, the source to a variety of the R.C.U.s. The planet's very thin atmosphere and low gravity, allows small asteroids to float just above the surface, which is why the planet is covered in craters.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters


Kerwan

The city of Metropolis

A bustling planet that was home to the gigantic city of Metropolis.It is the most important planet in Solana being home to 3 trillion people and also the most featured in the series making an appearence in almost every game. In Deadlocked, Sasha became the Mayor of Metropolis. it had undergone possibly the most drastic terrain changes ever seen in the Ratchet & Clank series. During Ratchet's first visit, Kerwan strongly resembled Coruscant from Star Wars, with a surface that took on the appearance of a worldwide city. When Ratchet later returned, Kerwan was depicted as a lush, vegetated world covered in vast oceans. As the duo took off for Polaris it looked like a red deserty world even though Kerwan was not a desert world although it could have a few, it may had other terrain as well, like Coruscant from Star Wars, has mountains. In a commercial later viewed, Kerwan looked lush and vegetated again.

Kronos


Kronos
A planet similar to Koros, and it is here where Shellshock roams . The Dark Cathedral is the biggest building in the city that was once a cathedral but was the taken over by Sheelshock. Kronos is also a planet with an abundance of grind rails. It is home to a massive and highly-advanced city that took on a dark and sinister appearance, created for a fearsome atmosphere. It was not uncommon for storms to occur on this planet. The city on Kronos was possibly one of the largest in the Shadow Sector.

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked




Magmos

Captain Qwark on Magmos

A planet in the Solana Galaxy, and was the home of one of Dr. Nefarious's lairs. The planet was covered in rivers of molten lava and active volcanoes, making it very inhospitable.

A planet resembling Maraxus could be seen in the sky from Stratus City on planet Kortog, indicating it is close to the Polaris Galaxy.

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked




Marcadia

The Capital City

The Solana Galaxy's seat of power, Marcadia was home to the Presidential Compound, where the Galactic President, the Galactic Government and most likely the Galactic Court reside. It was also the location of Galactic Rangers HQ. Its surface was mostly orange, so it was probably a desert world with limited vegetation. Capital City was a large beautiful metropolis, with many palace-like buildings with gilded roofs. The surface water was red. It was also hinted that it was the home world of the Cazars, intelligent, lombax-like creatures that have sustained a democracy over thousands of years. This is likely because the buildings are reminiscent of modern-day parliaments and places of importance.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Medical Outpost Omega

Medical Outpost Omega

A space station run by the Technomites that was used for medical research. This is where Ratchet's DNA was extracted for the clones Emperor Otto Destruct created. It was later destroyed by Ratchet in a fit of rage, the remnance and debris left from the station are still usable for Skyboarding.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters



Metalis

The Junkyard

A junkyard planet of the Solana Galaxy mechanical parts. It often had obsolete or damaged robots dropped off there, and they created the Robot Wars, a destruction derby where old robots mounted themselves in dangerously armed vehicles to amuse themselves. In addition to the Robot Wars, other sports had evolved, for example, the bot-flinging Gadgebot Toss was a mind-challenging gadgebot survival game. Robots were also dumped here to fend for themselves.


  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters

Mylon

On Mylon

Mylon was a heavily fortified refinery planet that was used by Dr. Nefarious as a Bio-Bliterator fueling plant. Opposed by dozens of robot Thyrranoids, it was where Ratchet and Clank bravely fought their way through the base and eventually reached the Bio-Bliterator and Nefarious, and destroyed both. The climate on this planet, appeared to be polluted, muddy, and dark, due to all the refineries and fueling stations. The sky was a dark brownish color, just like planet Umbris.


  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal


Nebula G34

The research center in G34

The Nebula G34 was a relatively unexplored sector of space that was home to the Blarg Tactical Research Station. Filled with asteroids, all space stations in the sector had powerful meteor shields to prevent destruction.

When he heard that Qwark escaped, Lawrence suggested to Nefarious that they "flood the vicinity with boiling acid," to which Nefarious answered, "I like the way you think, Lawrence. Can we do that? Make it so!" The player then controls Qwark as he tries to beat the rising acid to the surface and escape Nefarious once again. The acid is blue in color.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Novalis

Crash landing on Novalis

Novalis is an earth-like planet with a good balance of water and land. Aside a small population of Amoeboids in one of its larger caves, Tobruk Crater appeared to be a generally clean area of Novalis full of villages, caves, and sewers.

  • Ratchet and Clank



Obani Draco

Draco

Obani Draco was the third moon of the planet Obani in the Zygan System and was home to Courtney Gears' secret getaway and recording studio. Its appearance was not unlike that of a massive disco ball, and its interior was packed with speakers and colored lights - giving the impression of a high-tech rave. The moon was first mentioned as the "third moon" but later its real name was revealed. Its name was formed from the name of its planet, Obani, and the Latin word draco - which means "dragon".

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Obani Gemini

Gemini

Obani Gemini was the main moon of the moons that orbited the planet Obani in the Zygan System. It had an unusually small size and thus could be fully explored within a short space of time. The moon was surrounded by a ring of asteroids and had a very uneven surface featuring rivers of lava and small, grassy areas. Most notably, the moon was surrounded by a series of satellites and, by repairing the laser links between them it was possible to access the teleporter leading to the nearby moon, Obani Pollux.


  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal


Obani Pollux

Pollux

Obani Pollux was the second moon in the Zygan System. Dr. Nefarious erased all coordinates to this moon and made it accessible only through a teleporter on Obani Gemini. As a mostly cybernetic moon with cybernetic vegetation, Obani Pollux also featured the controls for the Omega-class disintegration system which surrounded Obani Draco. Like Obani Gemini, it had a very uneven surface consisting of many cliffs.


  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Oltanis

Oltanis

A planet plagued by deadly lightning storms (which was the reason Clank couldn't go and explore with Ratchet). In order to stop the storms from causing any damage, the residents utilized massive lightning attractors that harnessed the energy. The citizens of Oltanis were completely unarmed, preferring to live peaceful lives rather than to go to war. This made the planet an easy target for Chairman Drek of the Blarg, during his attempt to create a new planet for his people on Orxon. Oltanis was home to Gorda City.


  • Ratchet and Clank


Orxon

Orxon

A heavily-industrialized world filled with Raritanium mines, which caused the horrendous pollution that has rendered the planet virtually uninhabitable. Most Blargs were forced to wear oxygen masks in order to survive in the poisonous atmosphere. Orxon was used as a gauntlet course for DreadZone contestants, and the world had been "terraformed", as it is raining. The planet returns from the original Ratchet and Clank, however the game makes no significant try to make you realise that.

  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Ratchet: Deadlocked


Pokitaru


Clank, relaxing on Pokitaru

A very small tropical world filled with oceans and islands. It was home to the Jowai Resort. At a time, it was one of the most popular getaway spots in the galaxy. However, since the Blarg began dumping their toxic waste in the oceans, the sea life became ravenous mutants and the resort neared the verge of shutting down. Many tourists either were forced to flee as a result, or became fish and chips. Fortunately, Ratchet and Clank stopped this pollution and the resort eventually reopened. The planet was also a great source for the element Raritanium, but it became impossible to find thanks to the Blarg's pollution.

Quartu

Quartu

The homeworld of Clank and was home to an enormous robot processing factory. It was a rocky desert like world with deep canyons and minimal vegetation.

She created Clank so that he could combat Drek's plans, and told the duo about Drek's plans to destroy Veldin.


  • Ratchet and Clank



Quodrona

Quadrona

Quodrona was a volcanic planet where an appearently abandoned city remains. The planet is seen in the Technomite Map Room on planet Ryllus, proving that it is, or was sometime, inhabited by Technomites. Emperor Otto had his Ratchet Clone Factory built on this planet underground, where most lava caves of the planets were. He had a training camp for the Ratchet Clones located here as well.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters



Rilgar

Blackwater City

Rilgar was a chilly planet far from any sun, but that is yet without snow. It was famous for its black-colored "water", from which Blackwater City took its name. Rilgar was a popular spot for hoverboard races, and was also home to an active night life. However, it also suffered from an Amoeboid infestation, which had seen some resurgences since their initial "extermination" at the hands of Captain Qwark.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Rionosis

Rionosis

Planet Rionosis was well known by it's new year celebrations. Because the planet moves round the sun at such a rapid speed a new year comes in every 4.2 seconds. The terrain of the planet is mountainous and also has volcanos.


  • Secret Agent Clank




Ryllus

The forests of Ryllus

A plant-covered, fairly inhospitable planet, in the Solana galaxy. Ryllus had a diversity of bizarre plants. The sun was hidden, due to the dense cover of tree canopy, and gave the forests a purple-colored tone. Razorback Cats were native to this planet, as well as the carnivorous Bury Blossom plants. A large number of ruined temples were also some of the features.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters

Sarathos

Sarathos

A hellish alien swamp world with a very gassy atmosphere. Sarathos is inhabited by Leviathans, monstrous and very agressive scorpion-like beasts that lurk in the swamps. The average Leviathan's monstrous nature was matched only by the King Leviathan, a much larger and more dangerous Leviathan that resided in a combat arena built by the Vox construction team. Like many other planets in the Shadow Sector, Sarathos was used by Gleeman Vox as a DreadZone challenge course.

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked

Shaar


Icy planet that is the site of various mysterious ancient temples. The endless expance of the icy tundra made survival a struggle. Little is known about the nature of the temples or who built them, although the existence of "the Ancient Guardians of Shaar" has been hinted by DreadZone paint jobs. After the temples were abandoned, Gleeman Vox had them turned into a DreadZone battlecourse

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked

Spaceship Graveyard

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Stygia

Stygia

A planet plagued by meteor showers, probably from the nearby Valix Belt, that were only held in check by massive forcefields. If these shields were to fail, Stygia would be destroyed within mere hours. Gleeman Vox turns the forcefields off and sends Ratchet to turn them back on. There are also massive lightning storms on the planet frequently. The city itself is suspended high above the surface, possibly explaining the rough weather.

  • Ratchet: Deadlocked


Thran Asteroid


The Thran Asteroid was the location at which Captain Qwark hid after the return of Dr. Nefarious. Filled with Qwark Bots, Lawn Ninjas, and forcefields, the icy getaway was virtually impenetrable. The belt was very cold and the second anyone fell in the water, they were frozen solid. There were very high cliffs scattered everywhere and large dead-looking trees.

  • Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Torval


Torval
 A deserted planet that was the site of various toy factories belonging to Gleeman Vox of the Vox Media Empire. Vox's line of Ace Hardlight action figures were built on Torval, but the factory was eventually shut down due to bad sales. The factory remains soon became infestated with robot zombies. After the factory was shut down, Vox had the abandoned factory turned into a DreadZone battlecourse. A planet that resembles Torval can be seen in the sky from Stratus City on Kortog, which hints that Torval may be close to the Polaris Galaxy.

  • Ratched: Deadlocked


Tree House


The High Impact Games Treehouse was a secret level in Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank, similar to the Insomniac Museum in Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal. In Size Matters, there were only two ways to get there. The first way was to go to planet Metalis between 2:42 AM and 2:47 AM, and a teleporter appeared near the Titanium Bolt location. The other way was to get all Skill Points.

Crash Site

Zeldrin was a planet in the Joraal Nebula where Captain Qwark crash-landed after his supposed "death" on Dr. Nefarious's Leviathan. It was a forested world with numerous canyons and oceans, much like the planet Joba. It was rather cloudy at the time of Ratchet's visit, and the sky was strangely purple in appearance. After the Leviathan crashed onto Zeldrin's surface, its surviving robot crew invaded the canyon on which the vessel had landed.

Zygan System


The Zygan System was the area of space that held the planet Obani and its moons. The most well known moons were Obani Gemini, Obani Pollux and Obani Draco. A great war was fought in the Zygan System, which led to many of it's inhabitants fleeing elsewhere. One participant in the war was Shellshock, in this war his brain was destroyed and had to be replaced with a chip from a coffe machine.
