Description

Makeb’s wealthy citizens have spent millions of credits trying to solve the problem of the planet’s peculiar atmospheric conditions. High levels of electromagnetic interference in Makeb’s upper atmosphere wreak havoc on communications and destroy any ship much larger than a personal shuttle. The interference was responsible for the original transport crash that brought Makeb’s settlers to the planet. It also rendered the transport’s communications equipment useless, cutting off Makeb from the rest of the galaxy. Although Makeb engineers eventually devised a reliable communication system that compensates for the interference, traveling through the atmosphere is still incredibly dangerous. In the early days of Makeb’s colonization, daredevil pilots calling themselves the Lightning Runners built specialized fliers from salvage and attempted to navigate the skies. While many died, the data they gathered eventually showed patterns in the interference, which modern Makeb shuttle pilots exploit to safely transport passengers and cargo in small quantities.
