Kor’tek was the homeworld to the Kor species. It was destroyed in the First Great Megin War. What was left of Kor’tek was then nothing but an asteroid belt known as the Valley of Ships, for it was still full of broken Kor ships drifting around it. It became part of Kor tradition for a comanding officer’s remains to be thrown through the airlock in a space-coffin at the Valley.
The destruction of Kor’tek ended the First War, and greatly weakened the Kor Empire.
