Braxis Alpha is a brown ringed planet situated in or near the Koprulu Sector.[4][5][2] It is a combination of industrial wasteland and mountainous regions, covered in craggy rock formations and factory-like debris, such as loose gears and turbines that jut out from mountain faces.[2] It is orbited by space platforms[4] such as Scrap Station.[3]

The planet is surrounded by rings and both its poles are covered in ice. From the north, this ice gives way to a sea that runs across the equator and into the southern hemisphere, like a scar cutting through the landscape. Some of the surface is composed of desert.[1]

The rings seems to be inclined in relation to the planet's equator.[6]

HistoryEdit

In ages past, the xel'naga visited the world. It still bears their relics.[1]

Following the Brood War, the planet was the subject of infrastructure improvements by the Terran Dominion.[7] Years later, with the zerg's return to the Koprulu Sector, the planet apparently fell into a state of conflict, being subjected to plasma bombardment.[5]

After the first phase of the Second Great War, a space battle was fought above the planet between two terran factions.[8]

NotesEdit

From space, the old image of Braxis Alpha looks nearly identical to Bel'Shir.[5]

There is another similarly named planet called Braxis, but its relationship to Braxis Alpha is unclear.
