- the Dewans were a subject race of the Iconians
- during the rebellion against the Iconians, Dewa III was nuked from orbit. Most of the Dewans died off, while the Iconians escaped through the gateways
- the Dewans eventually created a civilization not unlike 21st century Earth
- they were on the brink of building their first warp ship when they discovered an Iconian gateway in an underground cavern
- they abandoned space exploration in favor of fixing up the gateway
- they connected the gateway to geothermal taps to power it
- when they activated it, it triggered tons of seismic activity -- volcanic eruptions, huge earthquakes, tsunamis, etc
- the surviving Dewans retreated into caves, and eventually died off when their resources ran out
