Obelisk On Memnos III

Mid-Autumn At The Emperor's Garden On Cordero Prime

Richly scented blooms line the Emperor's Walkway on Cordero Prime. Lush, exotic plants and trees from dozens of galaxies grow on the palace grounds. The Gardens have been cultivated for over 10,000 years, since the early days of the Empire.

Some stars still dare to show themselves in the morning light. Cordero Prime is located in a very dense globular star cluster in the Sombrero Galaxy, about 55 million light years away. Many local stars are less than one light-year from the planet.
