The Elysium Model 2 atmospheric processor was a model of terraforming installation produced by Gandorthral Atmospherics and available in the period following the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Costing AurebeshSans-Serif credit4,500,000, the model was the smallest terraforming device the company sold and was roughly equal in size to a Star Cruiser. The device's layout was similar to a large ziggurat, with stepped sides and a flat top concealing the many internal systems which the machine needed to produce a breathable atmosphere, clean water, and weather patterns. The systems were powered by the subsurface heat and energy of a planet, and used the raw materials available to manipulate the environment around them. Elysiums needed a crew of at least one hundred technicians and engineers as well as droids to work areas of the processor unsuitable for organics. During the colonisation of a world, a Model 2 was often the first thing deployed, with the colony built around the machine. As such, many cities in the Outer Rim Territories included a repurposed or decommissioned Elysium somewhere within their borders.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
