The Lagora System Project was ambitious, expensive, and dangerous from the start. The design was a large and powerful; shield that could go around an entire planet. This had been done before but JST was ready to take the idea to a whole new level. For the first time ever, a shield was going to be completely impermeable rather than just a transparent wall that would fall under constant bombardment. This shield would be activated when a planet was under siege and they needed protection frm orbital bombardment. But that was not all. The shield was modeled after a body cell, letting things out and nothing in. This would allow the defenders to hit the attackers and the attackers would be powerless to stop them.
To accomplish such a project, JST needed extensive supplies of energy, particulary large amounts of energy from the infamous and highly dangerous substance known as Element-Z. They found a planet, the deserted planet of Lagora had extensive amounts of Element-Z underneath the surface. Once the research teams touched ground, they found Lagora completely empty of life, covered with rolling rock plains. Empty shells of cottages showed that people obviously used to inhabit the planet but the reason they had vanished was unknown. Disregarding these omens, JST teams began to build factories and mine underneath the surface in where they believed the most Element-Z was stored. The miners were happy that they found thousands of pounds of Element-Z and immediately unloaded their finds in close proximity with each other. These massive Element-Z dumps were stored in containment chambers in the newly built factories until they were ready for usage.
Finally, construction on the Lagora System Project began about three months into the conveying of the project. Several of the miners who had found the Element-Z died of an unknown and unidentified disease around this same time period. JST leaders disregarded this as well, instead instructing the remaining miners to build mass graves as the dead started to accumulate steadily. Some people voiced concern about overexposure to Element-Z but their cries were ignored by the JST High Command. It was then when a massive epidemic swept through the complex, killing hundreds working on the Project. Cause of death was unknown and Forensic Scientists examining the bodies could find nothing physically wrong with them. The dead were ferried out in trucks as swiftly as possible, as many people believed that the dead bodies were a factor in infecting the living. Finally, as the death toll continued to mount, JST decided to call the Project off. All of the surviving members were brought off the planet through the means of evac transport. However, a small number remained behind to move the partially constructed shield to a new laboartory. As they loaded the shield onto a large cargo ship, the Element-Z reacted badly with the new air inside the cargo ship. It promptly exploded, killing everyone who had remained on the planet in one massive eruption. JST successfully covered up the horrible incident but those who visit Lagora can still find the remains of what had begun as the Lagora System Project.
