Vash'ya is a Sept of the Tau Empire established during the Second Sphere of Expansion.[1a]

Sept Informations

The sept world of Vash'ya was settled near the end of the Second Sphere Expansion, with the Earth caste machines needing a long time to make the air breathable, making it known as the world 'between spheres'. The sept world provided a majority of Air caste ship crews and pilots for the earlier expansions. Because of this, the Air caste has a long tradition here. Many defence platforms and major Air caste fleets dock near the sept world.[1a][2]

Sometime after the Second Agrellan Campaign, Vash'ya was invaded by a force of Hrud. The Tau countered the aliens' entropic time fields with Drones and remotely operated Battlesuits, delivering a victory for the Empire after a fierce battle.[3]
