Description

An ice world that would make Hoth look positively tropic, Csilla is the homeworld of the blue-skinned race. On Csilla, the Chiss live under the ice to escape the bitter cold of the surface. Even so, heating is required and they use classically Chiss technology to do this as efficiently as possible. Most of the hallways and vast corridors through the ice are natural products of glacier flow.


History

Sometime around 27,500 BBY, Humans arrived on Csilla in a sleeper ship and colonized the planet.[3] The planet entered an ice age in 5,000 BBY. Glaciers covered the normally-warm equatorial regions of the planet, while solid ice locked the poles in perpetual winter. In order to survive, the Chiss built energy-efficient warrens beneath the ice, as close to the warmth of the inner planet as possible, with underground carriage travel routes to connect the various underground sections of Csilla. The iceways were bored through the bedrock of the planet, so that they were unaffected by the shifting ice found on the planet's surface. [1]

Locked in an ice age for millennia, Csilla forced many socioeconomic and technological changes upon the Chiss, but few physical changes. Contrary to beliefs in a link between the Chiss skin color and the Csillan temperature, scientists concluded that the Chiss’ blue skin was caused by a mineral found in the Csillan hydrosphere. [1]

Csilla was the capital of the Chiss Ascendancy. It was also home to the Expeditionary Library. [1]


In recent history the first organisation to control Csilla was the 12 Colonies who eventually reformed into the Chiss Ascendancy.

A New Republic offensive into the Unknown Regions resulted in the Battle of Csilla.
