As the center of the mammalian coalition and home to many of its species, the planet Genus serves as the base of the resistance to the Toad Empire. At the core of the United Animals Federation lies a city surrounded by lush, green fields, the very contrast to the swampy, murky habitat the enemy toads favor.
As the heart of the S.P.A.C.E, the planet is suitably protected by the most advanced defense system in the aniverse, the Genus Defense System, which consists of a field of armored satellites surrounding the planet.This has led to an almost dismissive sense of security towards the toad empire by at least some of the worl d's inhabitants, including the United Animals Security Council, the body of Genus' government that Captain Bucky O'Hare and his crew directly report to.
Genus is also home to a historical archives from which Android First Class Blinky and other S.P.A.C.E outlets store information on the toads as well as worlds home to the coalition. Willy DuWitt first learns of the history of the toads and of Bucky O'Hare's homeworld, Warren, through these recordings.
Ultimately, Genus is the goal of the Toad Empire but Bucky O'Hare and the crew of the Righteous Indignation, as well as Captain Dogstar's Indefatigable, and Captain Mimi LaFloo's Screaming Mimi fight dilligently to protect the heart of the alliance.
