The Jatha Dilithium Mine was a rich source of dilithium for Ktarn Fleet in the early 25th Century. It also served as a resource and transportation hub. Lieutenant Linor, the fleet’s chief quartermaster, managed the mine, but left most of the day-to-day operations in the hands of his foremen. Commander Janko Zupan, commanding officer of the USS Gondolier, was responsible for the mine’s defenses and escorting the SS Venitian.
