History and Background[edit]

Hemant-Aeronautics are a major supplier of small craft, subcraft and non starships throughout the subsector, with 400 permanent residents made up of chief executives, board members and their families, other employees are drawn in from neighboring worlds (with a great deal from Hebrin (Empty Quarter 1930)) in 6 monthly cyclic 'shifts' being in the main engineers, naval architects, zero-G construction experts and support staff that oversee the largely automated design and build programs typical of the Hemant Yards.

A small orbital port attached to the Primus Shipyard directs system traffic and handles most in system trade and transfer requests. The planet below is large, slightly chilly with extended polar ice caps that stretch all of the way down to the the local tropics. Large shallow oceans (77% hydrosphere) teem with life, though all of it is imported from other worlds within the sector, the result of along abandoned terraforming attempt. The dense atmosphere is breathable though tainted by uncontrolled fungal spores that irritate the lungs in humans and related species such as the Vargr, hence filter masks are a must when venturing out. Where rain falls, it is usually highly acidic, with the result that plant life is almost non-existent where the ice gives way to rock. Indeed all of the planet's oxygen is produced by algae in this worlds seas, being the only complete stage of the terraforming process so far. Some Executives and their staff do live in the elevated and craggy mountainous regions close to the equator where the taint is bearable and homes are hermetically sealed. Although most use of the atmosphere is simply for atmospheric testing of high performance pinnaces, ship's boats and launches or the occasional military design. The vast expanses of rocky wasteland are also considered ideal as bombing/testing ranges by many of the armed forces of nearby worlds, not to mention units of both the Imperial Army and Marine Forces, that can often be seen visiting this system for exercises and training.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Hemant, as a member world of the Third Imperium has a member of the Imperial Nobility overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Hemant has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.
