The Long Death was believed to be a lengthy, painful termination of one's life carried out by Honored Matres tribunals on Rikka's Planet during The Scattering.

When Sheeana and Garimi of the no-ship, the Ithaca, led a fact-finding down to the surface of Rikka's planet during the advent of Kralizec, they came across a holo-recording of a trial from centuries before. In the "holo", they learned that a Matre commander, Rikka, had broken quaratine and brought back a described "deadly plague" to the world, infecting millions.

The Matre tribunal found her guilty, and pronounced her sentence to be the Long Death. It was not revealed in the holo what the actual Long Death was.
