Heyn'Am Rim

Planetary System

Regarded as the breadbasket of the region, this system was discovered by the Imperium in M38, and earmarked for forcible induction to the Imperium at least twice. In both cases, its equidistant position between two rival subsectors saw much political sabre-rattling, and the invasion was postponed.

It bears an unusual population of abhumans alongside at least two xenos species. The three species seem to have a commensual relationship, all living and working together; benefitting from each others' protection and mostly using different resources. Imperial hopes that the humans could be recovered and reindoctrinated proved fruitless after investigation found the humans to be hopelessly corrupted by intentional genehancing – hence their classification to abhumans. 

The agriworld – or rather sept – is known to the Tau as Heyn'Am, a transliteration of the inhabitants' own name. The world did not voluntarily join the Greater Good, and its population still harbours ill-will towards their new rulers.

The Qu'Ban Laser Crisis

Heyn’Am was the scene of an early flashpoint in the Feverdream Episode. Trapped in the approach arc of both Feverdream and the Curdling Armada, the already-discontented native population was incited to open rebellion by insurgent elements.

Alarmed by a sudden cessation in contact from their command centre on the island of Qu’Ba, local Brightsword forces hastily assembled to assist the planetary suppression units. Whilst preparing for a full-scale assault on the Bayeaux Pigues region, orbital scans revealed construction of what appeared to be a large military facility further inland on Qu’ba. Fearing that delaying action would have disastrous consequences, contact was made with reliable alien agents planetside (the Bo’Than movement). Construction plans were appropriated and, although many Bo’Thans died in their retrieval, the T’au infiltrators escaped to the rendezvous point at Qi Liym Bay.
