Nimoy is a desert planet named after actor Leonard Nimoy. It was intended to be a capitalist utopia, however, investors pulled out after a bioterrorist attack on the planet damaged the reputation of the GenoStudies corporation. The Terraforming process was aborted, and the planet became a desert wasteland. However, a small (though, mostly illegal) community formed, and the planet eventually became a popular port in the system. Samantha Endesha was found here.
