Era: New Era

Beck's World is a non-industrial world, with a small but stable population, but lacks the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world contains a archaeological site with suspected high-tech remnants of the now-vanished Ancients precursor race. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Past volcanic activity on Beck's World has covered the surface with huge mountains and vast plains of solid lava. A collapsed labyrinth of interconnected caves, suspected of Ancients origin, has only been partially excavated by scientists of the University of Regina.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This is a backwater world near the coreward end of Regina Subsector. Beck's world is rigidly controlled by a paramilitary state. The planet's population is concentrated in and around a single settlement, Beck's Town, located on the shore of the world's one small sea.

A repressive government and limited trade have both served to keep the Tech Level of this world very low. Beck's World has two claims to Fame. One is the fact that there is an ancient site on the world, which is being excavated by the University of Regina. The University has only partially excavated this collapsed warren of interlocking caverns.

The other major claim to fame is the Battle of Beck's World, which happened on 122-1109 during the Fifth Frontier War. In that battle, Admiral Elphinstone destroyed the last remnants of the Vargr fleet from Yorbund (Spinward Marches 2303). This major victory was instrumental in breaking the Vargr resolve and eventually winning the war.

What many people do not know is that the Vargr prisoners from that battle were quartered on Beck's World until after the war. Many of the Vargr chose to remain on Beck's World after they were released, and have since become Imperial citizens. About one third of the planet's population now is Vargr. The prison camp where they were held was torn down as a gesture of friendship between the two races.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Beck's World , as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Beck's World has a poor quality starport.

  • A Class-D Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many skilled personnel who can perform minor repair work.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class very rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.
