Gemini Subsector, subsector O of the Solomani Rim Sector, is named for the bright stars Castor and Pollux.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Although Castor and Pollux are very similar stars, their asteroid belts are quite dissimilar. The Pollux Belt is little more than gravel, and commercial exploitation would be unprofitable. The Castor Belt is, on the other hand, rich in metals, ices, and simple organics, and has many large planetoids suitable for habitat construction. Consequently, Pollux is uninhabited and unvisited; Castor supports a population of five billion.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • Hephaistos is one of the few terraforming projects completed by the Imperium. Begun during the Interstellar Wars, the project was alternately abandoned and resumed several times. The project was finally completed by the Hephaistos Company, chartered by the Imperium in 632, and the planet was opened in 835 and sections were sold off to several colonial groups. Although the project is officially complete, work still proceeds to reduce and fine-tune the ocean and atmosphere.
  • Smade's Planet was settled by a single family a century ago, taking advantage of a dormant Imperial claim to the world; to date, the Solomani have not contested their presence. The Smade family, eager for news and offworld goods, welcomes visitors and traders (although local prices are extremely high).
