System Data[edit]

Bakan-Desh System[edit]

The primary is Bakan, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.778 Sols, a mass of 0.96 Sols, and a diameter of 1.299 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II-I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (II-II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld. (III) Desh orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (VI) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VII) a dense stony planetoid belt, (VIII) a ringed very large gas giant, and (IX) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Desh[edit]

(III) Desh is designated the mainworld. It orbits Bakan at a mean distance of 0.59 AU (88.3 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 168 days 23 hours and a rotation period of 21.5 hours. The axial tilt is 24 degrees. Desh has a diameter of 9,328 km, a density of 5.35 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.71 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.89 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 22% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 70% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 25°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans drive across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Desh retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Cal:

(IIIa) Cal (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters/230,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 273 million km², Water surface area: 191 million km², Land surface area: 82 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Bakan-Desh System[edit]

Desh, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.
