The inhabitants of the planet Aksum only achieved warp capability in the last fifty years.
The surface of Aksum is covered with industrial highways and artifical water channels dug by the inhabitants due to the planet being only 20% covered with water and over 80% land.
The planet is highly industrialised with a society that is much less advanced then current Federation standards. Aksum is abundant in oil and primitive chemical fuels, as a result, the planet has undergone extensive resource mining before the discovery of anti-matter and warp technology.
Scans conducted by the USS Sheppard shows some evidence of animal life however no further information is avaliable.
Aksum III has extensive concentrations of Cabon Monoxide in the atmosphere which has led to a partial Greenhouse Effect over the planet due to its highly industrialised nature.
"Supermetropolises" (massive cities) have been established on the surface that continue to pollute the atmosphere on the planet. This highly industrial condition means that they planet may have extensive damage to their atmosphere.
Aksum III first made contact with the USS Sheppard on 100911 which picked up the starship via their communications channels, good relations between United Federation Starfleet and the Aksum III government has been established in the hope of a cultural exchange.
