Though the Age was given to the D'ni general population by the
Lords of the time, Gira was quickly discovered to house a number
of animals, a native population, and archeological records of
varying kinds. The Age was removed from general access and given
to various study groups.
The actual Age of Eder Gira is much larger than the portion
that will be released to the public initially.
Outlying areas are diverse and surprsingly different than those
already open. Much work is needed.
