Arcturus (SR 2921) (world)
|Arcturus/Arcturus (Solomani Rim 2921)|
|Classic Era (1115)|| |
Arcturus is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and is also a low-population vacuum environment with a population less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.
- Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
- This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
- It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Arcturus Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.
- Some also call it Arcturus Belt.
- It is a colony of Banasdan (Solomani Rim 2920), administered in a government enclave at Wainwright Starport.
Description (Astrography & Planetology)
Arcturus is a comparative backwater system, neither particularly rich or important. Its population is almost entirely composed of miners and their support personnel.
- Mining licenses have been restricted to larger corporations such as Lamarck Minerals and Triple-G Resources, which has caused resentment among locals.
