Growing up on a desert planet that had a hot arid surface with no above ground water, but it was a far cry from Tau Cygna V, where in 2274 a deep space colony ship called the SS Artemis crash landed (it's destination Septimis Minor, )on the planet's surface discovering hyperonic-radiation(lethal to most humans), heavy gasses and metal vapors combined with an atmosphere consisting of Oxygen and Argon. It wiped out two thirds of the crew before some of the survivors looked for and found cave system. The survivors made it to a home and hoped for rescue… The second generation and later was surprised to find that they were more tolerant of the radiation because there body had began to adapt to the deadly radiation by having a faster metabolism. Having a hardy Scottish highlander base stock didn’t hurt either. After twenty years, 10 years into the 2rd generation, the younger generation was sturdy enough to start to claim the surface and found they preferred living on the surface it to the caves and having a diet of radiation resistant plant life and similar animal life had a few effects on the colonists. Some had better vision, others had a stronger physique, and others had the ability to do amazing things with tools. but With a faster metabolism and a faster life cycle, the youth were having children and considered old by the time they were 15 and ancient by the time they were 30. few lived to be 50 ( 25 years federation standard due to a closer orbit to the Tau Cygna star, TC solar calendar had 16 hours in a day and 179 days in a solar year ) By the time the great life form know as DATA made it to the surface in a ship called The shuttle Onizuka, which Data which was named in tribute to one of the Space huttle "Challenger"
astronauts and warned of Sheliak claim on the planet in 2366, the population
had reached 15,253 people, which, however, DATA claimed had to be evacuated.

After a brief military confrontation in which the colonists lost due to
DATA adapting a phaser using his own circuitry to be able to fire in such an
environment as was on there planet, DATA had the colony packing up to move.

In the Treaty of Armens, "unwanted life forms inhabiting H class worlds may
be removed at the discretion of the Sheliak Corporate." When the fleet of
ships that moved everyone off planet arrived 4 days later, everything that
could be scavenged was moved, and numerous local fauna and plant life were
taken along. The federation experts chose Solaria Three( with a 36 hour day
and 455 day year, to try and mellow the stubborn colonists out a bit, it
mostly worked) as there new home due to it’s similar solar cycle and desert
like surface. So we (dislocated people) had a new home and thanks to the
foresight of the transplantee, to who managed to convince the Federation
experts that we needed a lot more than the rudimentary technology and that
our growth and psychology was already interfered with by the great “DATA”
and by threatening to declare succession to the Romulus empire, they were
given the base technology to pull the required heavy metals out of the
ground and beginning building their new homeworld up. After 5 generations
most of the bitterness was lost due mostly to the friendly ships stopping by
with lots of equipment to assist them in their rebuilding efforts. And by
the time of Ed' birth, the youth were friendly and eager to explore out
there. And due to due several abilities to withstand extreme conditions
that made them vital for exploration. Increased numbers of the younger
generation found the qualities of Solarian life style in the Starfleet made
starfleet the place of all places to be.

When after several decades experiments of the home guard fleet with trans
warp drive, finding warp speed a little slow for them, Solaria
confederation, which was at the time 3 star systems consisting of 9 planets
and 14 moons, was admitted to the UCIP, allowing for the not so young anymore, Ed to join Starfleet.

Ed was searching historical records for his academy report
when he stumbled across one of the logs of the enterprise mission reports.
Curious he read about transporters rendered inoperable and phasers useless
because hyperonic-radiation randomizes phaser fire.

Lt. Cmdr. Data: Sir, if I am unsuccessful, how violent is the Sheliac
response likely to be?
Commander William T. Riker: The treaty is the only thing that stopped them
from eradicating the colony the moment they discovered it.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: ...Ah.
Commander William T. Riker: "Ah" is right, Data.
