Dydan is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and nonindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant 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.
  • The worldlets require extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Irikusk Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Temus-Dydan System[edit]

The primary is Temus, a dim red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (III) the Dydan Main Belt, nominated the mainworld, (IV-I) a vacuum worldlet, (IV-II) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (V) a vacuum worldlet, (VI-I) a dense stony planetoid belt, (VI-II) a large gas giant, (VII) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VIII-I) a dense stony planetoid belt, (VIII-II) a ringed small gas giant, and (IX) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Only the bigworld and the gas giants retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Dydan Main Belt[edit]

(III) the Dydan Main Belt orbits within the outer system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 0.75 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 50 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 0.54 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of icy bodies, is considered to lie at approximately 0.96 AU. The main inhabited body is named Rose, with a mean orbital distance of 0.81 AU around Temus and an orbital period of 2 years 205 days. It has a long axis of 120 km, a density of 4.77 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.006 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: -160°C.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

World starport[edit]

Dydan 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]

Dydan possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft, and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World government[edit]

Dydan has a Participatory Democracy government.

  • It is a government by advice and consent of the citizen.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Democracy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
