Swallowflight, a relatively rare example of a ringed Gaian world

Capital of the Vela Immunity, located near the Vela Supernova Remnant, 880 ly from Sol. It was the victim of a disastrous event caused by self-replicating spore technology in 8100 AT. Most of the population was killed and the biosphere destroyed by bionano and hylonano swarms and other technological plagues.

The planet is now efficiently defended by the Vela Immunity system.

Representative symbol of the Vela Immunity. The original symbol of the Swallowflight Biosphere is circled by a blue band representing the protective band of Blue Goo. Originally the logo was the logo of the Immunity project fighting the swarms, but later it was adapted with slight modifications to form the government logo.
