It was the first permanent colony on the world and flourished from the moment it was created. This was because of the discovery of crystal deposits in the seabed which helped establish the early prominence of the city in the space program. Tours of the now depleted crystals are conducted on a regular basis. (FASA RPG module: The Romulans)
