History & Culture
According to the Xahean citizen Me Hani Ika Hali Ka Po, there was a natural balance between the planet and the Xaheans as they were born at the same time, making it her twin sister. The possibility of this being true has been disputed. Dilithium was mined in the caves on Xahea.
Around the 2250s there was upheaval on the planet, linked to the development of a Dilithium incubator capable of recrystallizing dilithium, as well as the planet gaining warp capacity. During this time, the King died and his sister, Me Hani Ika Hali Ka Po, was expected to be crowned as queen. She briefly ran away from the planet, causing the Xahean Council to send out a diplomatic hail (which Starfleet received), but she was convinced to take up her responsibilities after a run in on the USS Discovery.
