Isshikha is a barren world with no overt population, government, or law level.

  • Warning: Humans are not welcome within Sath-controlled areas. Those few humans that venture into their territory are generally met with a hostile reception and are closely monitored at all times.

System Data[edit]

Iss'thii-Isshikha System[edit]

The primary is Iss'thii, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.056 Sols, a mass of 0.5214 Sols, and a diameter of 773,000 km. (I) Isshikha orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (III) a small gas giant, (IV) a large ringed gas giant, (V) a thin atmosphere radworld, and (VI) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Isshikha and both of the giant worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Isshikha[edit]

(I) Isshikha is designated the mainworld and orbits Iss'thii at a mean distance of 0.28 AU (41.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 74 days 23 hours and a rotation period of 26.5 hours. The axial tilt is 18 degrees. Isshikha has a diameter of 6,271 km, a density of 5.21 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.46 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.23 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen, 18% oxygen, 1% carbon dioxide, and 1% argon, carbon monoxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 39% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges are 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 15°C. The atmosphere is sedentary and weak weather systems, driven by the star and the seas, crawl across the globe. The climate is seasonal and weather patterns follow regular cycles during the local year.

Satellite:[edit]

Isshikha retains a single natural satellite, a vacuum moon named Kikhi:

(Ia) Kikhi (UWP Y100000-0, orbiting at 20 Diameters/284,000 km).

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 124 million km², Land surface area: 76 million km², Water surface area: 48 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Isshikha has extensive but primitive native life, entirely consisting of microscopic multicellular organisms. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. Flora-types have colonised the land regions immediately around the seas and grow in vast thick slime-mats, each covering many tens of square kilometers.
