Amaterasu is a Terran Federation colony world.
During the Great Expansion, it was discovered that nearly half the planets in the Nubia Cluster are capable of supporting life. One ship, the SS Da Vinci, was sent to colonize the Kami system. After landing on the third planet in the system, the colonists established themselves as a pioneer colony. However, the dedicated colonization effort of the time led to the quick establishment of Amaterasu as a prosperous colony.
Following the Scoodian War, refugees were brought to Amaterasu for treatment.
