Firekka is a remote planet of the Firekka system located on the outer fringes of the Terran Confederation. It has a lower gravitational pull, making it difficult for outsiders to maneuver across the planet, especially on a spacecraft. In fact, human spacecraft were forbidden to spend prolonged periods of time in the atmosphere due to overpressure.
The planet had several oceans and at least two continents, and from space it looked blue-white, like Earth. It was partly vegetated while somewhat desert-like in other areas, with barren drocks and red-brown mountains. Several Firekkan villages are dotted all across the surface with nests tucked into cliffs, or artificial tall towers.
