Crater is a low-population vacuum world, with a population of 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.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Nisor Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Anchar-Crater System[edit]

The primary is Anchak, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0268 Sols, a mass of 0.4258 Sols, and a diameter of 658,000 km. (I-I) a dense atmosphere radworld, and (I-II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II) Crater, designated the mainworld, (III) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (IV) a ringed small gas giant, and (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Norkal Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Norran, a dim red main sequence star that orbits Anchak at a mean distance of 11.3 AU (orbital position (VIII), 1.69 billion km) and has an orbital period of 58 years 78 days. It has a luminosity of 0.004 Sols, a mass of 0.273 Sols, and a diameter of 414,000 km. (I) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (II) a ringed exotic atmosphere bigworld, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (IV) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(II) Crater[edit]

(II) Crater is designated the mainworld. It orbits Anchak at a mean distance of 0.36 AU (53.9 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 120 days 21: it is tidally locked to Anchak. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Crater has a diameter of 1,032 km, a density of 6.74 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.10 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Vacuum. It has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: -94°C.


Crater retains a single natural satellite, a tiny vacuum worldlet named Stott:

(IIa) Stott (UWP YS00000-0, orbiting at 9 Diameters/9,300 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 3.3 million km².

World starport[edit]

Crater has a routine quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Crater possesses a Technology Level of TL–10 or TL-A in Hexadecimal Notation.

World government[edit]

Crater has no well-defined government structure.

  • In many cases, tribal, clan or family bonds predominate.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
