Turaxis II is a planet situated in or near the Koprulu Sector.

It featured a single ocean. Its three moons ensures it has a short (six hour) night and a long twilight. It had a noticeable agricultural industry, with moss farms being one example.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Guild WarsEdit

Main article: Battle of Turaxis II

During the Guild Wars, the Terran Confederacy and Kel-Morian Combine fought over it. The Confederacy used an elite force, the 321st Colonial Rangers Battalion, in high-priority missions on the planet.[2]

In 2488 Cole Hickson and Jim Raynor were captured and thrown into a P.O.W. camp there. They were tortured by captors seeking information on neural resocialization.[3]

Dominion WorldEdit

With the fall of the Confederacy, the planet became a world of the newly established Terran Dominion. Dominion Marine Corps recruits were trained here.[4]

Military GeographyEdit

During the Guild Wars, the Terran Confederacy held control of the western half of the planet, with the Kel-Morian Combine holding the eastern part. The disputed zone was bordered on its western edge by the Snakeback Mountains. Firebase Zulu and Fort Howe, Confederate bases, were near the disputed zone.

The strategic city of Polk's Pride was divided into a Kel-Morian-dominated north and a Confederate-dominated south, split by the Paddick River, until Confederate Colonel Javier Vanderspool oversaw the capture of the northern section.[1]
