    While the planet is an inhospitable and sparsely populated desert wasteland, it is the only source of melange, a drug that extends life and enhances mental abilities. Melange is also necessary for space navigation, which requires a kind of multidimensional awareness and foresight. The factions of the empire confront each other in a struggle for the control of Arrakis and its spice.
