DescriptionEdit

Punished with UV and gamma radiation from the Class F Star it orbits, Utha is no one's first choice for a planet to land on. Covered in seawater, Utha has a hydrosphere and ozone layer similar to Earth's, but that simply isn't enough to ward off the life-killing radiation. Its nitrogen-rich, oxygen-poor atmosphere goes unchanged by the few proteins that have managed to form in the ocean depths.

Utha, however, has served as a way station for slaves escaping their batarian masters. What little land it has is tectonically stable, and its considerable radiation belt and electrical storms grant cover from many common types of sensors. Fleeing ships typically hide on Utha long enough to discharge their drive cores and stock up on deuterium before trying to make it to the cluster's mass relay.

TriviaEdit

  • Utha may be a reference to the character of the same name who appears in the Awakening expansion to the BioWare game Dragon Age: Origins, as well as its prequel novel, Dragon Age: The Calling.
