Coridan was unified and achieved spaceflight shortly after the end of a centuries long civil war. They have come a long way since then, but still suffer from numerous social problems. They maintain highly impressive ship building facilities, which exceed those of any other race yet discovered, in both scope and available materials. Their planet also has high levels of dilithium deposits, making it a candidate for illegal mining operations and piracy. They are a diplomatically agreeable people, and already maintain a variety of trade agreements with neighbouring races.
Coridan has some of the highest concentrations of dilithium deposits known. The Coridan have been extracting and purifying the crystals for decades, and are now considered experts in the field. The installation of this Dilithi-um Cracking Station will bring their greatest minds together with the latest technology to ensure that Coridan can continue to produce vast quantities of the crystals for decades to come.
