Fath is a poor, non-agricultural and nonindustrial world.

  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It has few prospects for economic development. Life here is drastically bleak.
  • It is a member of the Enlightened in the Sena Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Wasid-Fath System[edit]

The primary is Wasid, a dim red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.004 Sols, a mass of 0.273 Sols, and a diameter of 414,000 km. (I) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (II) Fath, designated the mainworld, (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV) a very thin atmosphere radworld, and (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Most of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(II) Fath[edit]

(II) Fath is designated the mainworld. It orbits Wasid at a mean distance of 0.52 AU (77.8 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 161 days 2 hours and a rotation period of 17.5 hours. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Fath has a diameter of 3,023 km, a density of 3.98 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.17 G. The world is geologically inert. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.18 bar and a composition of 85% nitrogen, 14% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen and relatively high levels of background radiation: emission rates exceed 2 rads per hour. Approximately 6% of the surface is covered in lakes of water kept liquid by geothermal heat generated by subsurface radioactives: average tidal ranges are negligible. Mean surface temperature: -53°C. The atmosphere is sluggish and weak weather systems driven by the star drift across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 28.7 million km², Land surface area: 27 million km², Water surface area: 1.7 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Fath has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of heat and water. Their metabolic funtions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Fath 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]

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

World government[edit]

Fath has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
