Although it has been speculated that Pallas was once able to support life, the planet is now dead and barren. At some point in history an unknown event or series of events lead to the end tectonic activity, presumably the loss of a magnetic field, and subsequent loss of most of the atmosphere to solar wind.
Despite this, Pallas is still has a significant human population and is home to a number of colonies and a presumably important military research station. The planet was significant enough to warrant a number of attempts to Kobolform it, all of which had failed.
- See  for the various meanings of the Planets name.
- "Kobolian" and "Kobolform" are the equivalent of Terrestrial and Terraform respectively.
- There are several similarities between Pallas and real world Mars. They both have a red tinted surface, they are both dead worlds belived to have once been active, and both have been marked as candidates for terrafoming. Infact, that largest differences are that, unlike Mars, Pallas has been reached by humans, and that Mars is much smaller then Pallas.
