The planet of Skye has been the emotional heart of the people of the Isle of Skye since the day it was colonized. With its contrasting landscapes and cool climate, the early English, Irish and Scottish settlers quickly came to feel at home. The descendents of the early colonists indeed have developed a deep emotional attachment to this world of green mountains, sitting beneath twin suns. With one very large continent, Skye had more than enough land to support the new settlers and their dreams. The capital, New Glasgow, is the heart and soul of Skye and located in the central area of the continent of New Scotland. The city was built in the Macintosh Valley and surrounded by the Bannockburn Bogs, a location chosen for its defensive value as well as its beauty.
Skye is a very industrialized world. Though a portion of the planet has been set aside for wilderness preserves, there was still enough land to use for resources. Many corporations have come to exploit the planet's vast resources. Two such companies are the Shipil Company, who builds aerospace fighters for the Alliance military, and Cyclops Incorporated, producer of a number of conventional tanks.
