衍生宇宙



Seen from space, the planet Mon Calamari appears as a tranquil deep blue orb with few landmasses. Despite the inherently peaceful nature of the native species that shares its name with the world, the endless oceans have been stained by bloody war on many occasions.
从太空看,蒙卡拉马里行星看似一颗宁静的深蓝色星球,海洋中点缀着少数陆地。可即使与这颗星球同名的当地种族天性和平,血腥的战争也多次玷污过这一望无际的海洋。

Two aquatic species have struggled for dominance on Mon Calamari for ages. Though the conflict has subsided in the face of greater external threats, neither the Mon Calamari nor the Quarren will ever forget the violence that has marred their histories.
许多年来,两个水生种族一直争夺着蒙卡拉马里的统治权。虽然在面对更大的外来威胁时争斗会暂时平息,但无论是蒙卡拉马里人还是夸润人都不会忘记那些属于历史污点的暴力冲突。

The Mon Calamari developed as coastal dwellers, living comfortably in both the water and on the surface. The Quarren lived in the depths, only surfacing on rare occasions and with great difficulty. The Mon Calamari developed culturally and technologically while the Quarren trailed behind as primitive savages. Contact between the two species was sporadic, and almost always violent. The aggressive Quarren grew to hate their strange world-mates, and would strike from the depths repeatedly. The more advanced Mon Calamari had the means to deflect such strikes time and again, but could not determine how to make the Quarren stop.
蒙卡拉马里人是海岸居民,舒适地生活在地表和水中。夸润人生活在海洋深处,偶尔十分困难地浮到水面。蒙卡拉马里人的文化和技术较发达,将原始未开化的夸润人抛在后面。两个种族偶有接触,但几乎总导致暴力事件。好战的夸润人逐渐憎恨他们奇怪的行星同胞,一遍遍地从海洋深处攻击他们。更先进的蒙卡拉马里人总有办法一次次阻挡攻击,但没办法让夸润人停止攻击。

Thus, centuries ago, the Mon Calamari embarked on a bold and controversial experiment. They abducted a generation of Quarren children from their parents, and raised them instead. They uprooted the primitive Quarren society, and attempted to civilize the people from the deep. It worked, after a fashion. The new generations of Quarren did not seek to make war with their neighbors, but since those days, many have always harbored resentment against their more sophisticated cousins.
于是,数白年前,蒙卡拉马里人开始了一项大膽而有争议的试验。他们从夸润人父母身边带走一代夸润人孩子,代他们将孩子们养大。他们改变了夸润人原始社会的生活方式,试图开化这个深海种族。在一定程度上,他们成功了。新一代夸润人不再向他们的邻居挑起争斗,但从那时起,许多夸润人总对他们更世故的兄弟心怀怨恨。

The newfound cooperation between the Mon Cals and the Quarren proved to be a boon to the planet. The Quarren were skilled miners, drawing precious ores from the ocean floors. The Mon Calamari were able starshipwrights, building majestic vessels to ply the local spacelanes in exploration. The Mon Cals were dreamers, with their heads in the stars. The Quarren were pragmatists, with their heads deep below the oceans. Though a small number of Quarren undertook a few scattered colonial ventures to get away from the oceans, the species as a whole had no interest in joining the galaxy at large.
蒙卡拉马里人和夸润人新建立的合作关系使这颗行星受益匪浅。夸润人是熟练的矿工,能从海底开采珍贵的矿石。蒙卡拉马里人是能干的星际船工,能建造宏伟的飞船,来回探索本地的太空航路。蒙卡拉马里人是梦想家,向往群星。夸润人是实用主义者,眷恋深海。除少数夸润人因零散的殖民地项目而离开海洋外,这个种族整体上无意融入银河系。

When the Republic discovered Mon Calamari, it was the Commerce Guild that took the most interest. The mineral assets of the planet were most attractive, and the Guild insinuated itself into the local government. The Calamari Council soon became staffed by Guild-appointees, all of them Quarren mining barons made exceedingly wealthy by graft from the Commerce Guild. With the Quarren basically in charge of the planet, they put a chokehold on the burgeoning Mon Calamari space program, enacting a policy of isolationism that kept the planet in interstellar stagnation for decades.
共和国发现蒙卡拉马里后,商业行会对此最为关注。行星上的矿产最吸引人。商业行会暗地里渗入当地政府。很快,卡拉马里委员会就充斥着商业行会指派的人,他们都是夸润族矿业巨头,因接受商业行会的贿赂而极为富有。随着夸润人基本上掌管了这颗行星,他们遏制了迅速增长的蒙卡拉马里太空计划,迅速推行孤立主义政策,使这颗行星的星际事务停滞了数十年。

The outbreak of the Clone Wars split the planet into civil war. The corrupt Quarren, Senator Tikkes, sought to bring his world into the Separatist fold, but he was censured before he could do so. A loyalist Senator, Tundra Dowmeia, was installed in his wake, but he could not keep Separatist-sympathies quiet among the Quarren. A radical movement, the Quarren Isolation League, sought to rid the oceans of any Republic presence. The local Mon Calamari Knights took up arms to stop them. Coruscant answered by sending General Kit Fisto to help the Knights, and together, they were able to bring Mon Calamari back into the Republic fold.
克隆人战争的爆发使这颗行星陷入了内战。腐败的夸润人议员蒂克斯设法让自己的母星加入分离主义阵营,但在事成之前受到谴责。忠诚派议员滕德拉·道迈亚随后接替了他,但无法止住夸润人对分离势力的同情。激进运动——夸润人孤立联盟——意欲把共和国势力完全清除出海洋。当地的蒙卡拉马里骑士拿起武器阻止他们。科洛桑也派出基特·菲斯托将军作为回应,帮助骑士,与他们一同将蒙卡拉马里拉回共和国阵营。

The transition was uneasy. The Mon Calamari Council was reformed, and the Separatist-sympathizers were ousted. The planet would now be jointly represented in the Senate by Mon Calamari and Quarren interests. As the Republic underwent transformation under Palpatine's New Order, the Mon Calamari were finally able to open up their world to the rest of the galaxy.
过渡并不容易。蒙卡拉马里委员会进行了重组,分离势力同情者被驱逐了。蒙卡拉马里人和夸润人共同在议会代表这颗行星。随着共和国在帕尔帕廷的新秩序下经历剧变,蒙卡拉马里最终还是对银河系其它地方打开了大门。

They ran straight into the Galactic Empire.
他们直接遇到了银河帝国。

An Imperial task force arrived at Mon Calamari, looking to garrison the world and its shipyards, and enslave the people of the ocean world. As a show of power, the Empire destroyed three Mon Calamari cities from orbit. It has long been rumored that a bitter Quarren collaborator was responsible for the lowering of planetary defenses.
一支帝国特谴队抵达蒙卡拉马里,打算驻扎这个世界及其船坞,奴役这个海洋世界的人民。作为武力炫耀,帝国从轨道上摧毁了三座蒙卡拉马里城市。很久以来都有传言,一个愤怒的夸润人通敌者对降下行星防御负有责任。

The Empire failed to occupy the planet, however. The Mon Calamari and the Quarren joined together to fight back against the invaders. They were able to repel the Imperial invasion, making it more costly to the Empire than it was worth. The Mon Calamari were soon to join the Alliance to Restore the Republic, committing their shipyards to construct mighty warships for the growing Rebellion.
然而,帝国没能占领这颗行星。蒙卡拉马里人与夸润人联手回击入侵者。他们击退帝国入侵,让帝国付出比想象中更为惨痛的代价。蒙卡拉马里很快加入共和国光复同盟,为正在壮大的起义军贡献出船坞,生产强大的军舰。

After the defeat of the Empire, Mon Calamari became one of the charter members of the Alliance of Free Planets, and the New Republic that followed. Protection of the world was the responsibility of the Mon Calamari Defense Forces, staffed by Mon Cals and Quarren alike. Though many Quarren secretly believed that war came to their world due to the Mon Cal venturing into dangerous waters, the planet enjoyed peace for a few years.
帝国败退后,蒙卡拉马里成为自由行星同盟和随后新共和国的创始成员之一。负责保护这个世界的是蒙卡拉马里国防军——蒙卡拉马里人和夸润人共同撑起这个组织。虽然许多夸润人私下认为母星遭受的战乱是蒙卡拉马里人涉足危险水域引起的,但这颗行星还是安享了几年和平。

Then, during the resurrected Emperor's campaign of terror, the oceans swelled with blood again. The Empire finally struck back against Mon Calamari with their new engines of destruction, the World Devastators. The massive floating weapons attacked the planet's southern territorial zone, ravaging the cities of Kee-Piru and Heurkea. The Battle of Mon Calamari became a pivotal conflict in the war against the cloned Emperor, and though the planet survived, it took years for Mon Cal ecologists to restore the world to its pre-war splendor.
随后,在皇帝复活后发动的恐怖战役中,海洋上又刮起了腥风血雨。帝国最终用新型毁灭性武器“毁世者”反攻蒙卡拉马里。这种巨大的浮空武器攻击了行星南部地域,破坏了基皮鲁和赫基两座城市。在抵抗皇帝克隆体的战争中,蒙卡拉马里战役成为一场关键的战斗。虽然这颗行星得以幸存,但蒙卡拉马里生态学家花了数年才将这个世界恢复到战前的繁茂水平。

Years later, during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong war, and following the collapse of the New Republic, Mon Calamari became the seat of government for the newly formed Galactic Alliance.
几年后,在遇战疯人战争的高潮期,随着新共和国的垮台,蒙卡拉马里成为新成立的银河同盟政府所在地。

Aside from the Mon Cals and the Quarren, the planet is home to a rare species of aquatic leviathan called the Whaladons. The massive cetaceans are intelligent, though they possess no technology. Another peculiar resident of the depths is the Mon Calamari Knowledge Bank. They are a bizarre community of intelligent bivalve mollusks with incredible memories that somehow retain the entire history of the planet. Non-intelligent life includes krakana, keelkana, choarn, lampfish, and flailers.
除了蒙卡拉马里人和夸润人,一个被称为“鲸人”的稀有水生巨型种族也以蒙卡拉马里为家。这种巨大的鲸类虽然没什么技术,但也是智慧生物。另一种奇特的深海居民是蒙卡拉马里知识库。这是一种由智慧双壳软体动物组成的奇异群落,他们有另人难以置信的记忆力,以某种方式保留了这颗行星的完整历史。一些非智慧生物包括克拉卡纳、基尔卡纳、乔昂、灯鱼和海锤。
身守无一处,心外是百州
