The supply base was mentioned to have contained 80,000,000 tons of grain, 24,000,000 tons of meat, 65,000,000 tons of livestock feed, 2,600,000 carats of industrial diamonds, 38,400,000 tons of liquid hydrogen, and large quantities of other rare metals, fuels, and petroleum.

Background information

Lycus, from the Greek word meaning 'wolf', is the name of several Greek rivers and mythological figures. It is unclear if this is the intended reference, however, since the Japanese spelling 'リュカス' (lyukasu) does not correspond with this name; rather, it is a possible transliteration of the name Lucas.
