Comments: Created by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
The above covers everything we know about Radius Eighteen. To the best of my knowledge, neither the world (pre-destruction) nor its inhabitants were pictured.
Radius Eighteen was lumped in the same description as Disradi and Tau Sceptre, as all three had Nega-Bombs used against them.
Maybe some writer will read this someday and flesh it out somewhat.
Why "Radius Eighteen"? That sounds like a sector or unit of distance rather a planet.
