Karina is a water world with 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.

  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Goss Subsector of Bourne Sector.

System Data[edit]

Brude-Karina System[edit]

The primary is Brude, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.216 Sols, a mass of 0.672 Sols, and a diameter of 978,000 km. (I) Karina orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a Very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (IV) a large gas giant, (V) a dense rocky planetoid belt, (VI) a ringed large gas giant, (VII) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Karina[edit]

(I) Karina is designated the mainworld. It orbits Brude at a mean distance of 0.14 AU (20.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 23 days 8 hours: it is tidally locked to Brude. The axial tilt is 1 degree. Karina has a diameter of 8,527 km, a density of 5.03 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.61 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Brude cause regular geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 1.07 bar and a composition of 84% nitrogen (N2), 15% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. 100% of the surface is covered in an ocean of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 1.4m. Mean surface temperature: 9°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and violent weather systems driven by the star and the oceans scour the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 228 million km², Water surface area: 216 million km², Ice surface area: 12 million km²

  • Karina is a Twilight Zone World. Much of the ice is concentrated within the dark face of the world.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Brude-Karina System[edit]

Karina, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cryophile cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.
