Alpha Cerenkov I, one of the two Redux Worlds in VUX space — the other being their homeworld, was awarded to former VUX war hero Admiral ZEX by the VUX High Council as his personal planet in recognition of his achievements in battle and in an attempt to give him a space to pursue his unusual hobbies without disturbing the VUX populace at large. ZEX resided here in the Alpha Cerenkov star system with his personal servants and subordinates, building his menagerie of what anyone but him would have considered to be grotesque creatures, acquired from all known space — as far away as Procyon and Vega, by his own words — including sixteen Shofixti Maidens in cryogenic suspension.

Unfortunately, ZEX's confinement technology was not adequate to his last acquisition, a legendary beast that broke free of its restraints and went on a rampage, killing all personnel before vanishing into the wilderness. Since the death of ZEX and the destruction of his compound, the planet has remained deserted.
