Tate is a desert planet, well loved for its dunes. Its native people are the Antiki, and it's populated by a number of interesting species, including Sand Worms, Giant Beetles, and the Tatean Condor, a particularly brutal bird.

The luxury liner Mara's Rose cruises the planet of Tate, providing the wealthy a comfortable position from which to view the dunes. It recently held a signing event for Hugo Dangant, though he was kidnapped by a group of Rumrack enthusiasts and escaped them just in time to arrive.
