  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It has few prospects for economic development.
  • This a "forbidden" world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here.
  • It is a main world which is a satellite of either a gas giant or another world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Kursa Subsector of Aldebaran Sector.
