Ashana as it appears on the Ark Starmap
Ashana is the fifth planet from the sun of the unclaimed Nul system. A cold desert world, the majority of its surface is covered in shifting sand dunes interspersed with glaciers. In 2571, the UEES Olympus was pursuing a group of anti-Messer activists to their makeshift base on Ashana when it drifted too close and was caught by the planet's gravitational pull. The carrier crashed and was subsequently abandoned. People who had been hiding out in caves on Ashana moved into the wrecked Olympus and turned it into a settlement of the same name.
