Kervath is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and barren in nature with no overt population, government, or law level.

  • These worldlets would warrant hazardous environment precautions if anyone lived here.
  • They could be populated if anyone had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Murada Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Joskoro-Kervath System[edit]

The primary is Joskoro, a dim red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.007 Sols, a mass of 0.331 Sols, and a diameter of 498,000 km. (I) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (III) the Kervath Main Belt, designated the mainworld, (IV-I) a ringed large gas giant, (IV-II) a large gas giant, and (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Falada Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Falada, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Joskoro at a mean distance of 296 AU (orbital position (XIII), 44.3 billion km) and has an orbital period of 8,850 years. It has a luminosity of 0.00054 Sols, a mass of 0.07 Sols, and a diameter of 91,500 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a small gas giant, (IV) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (V) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system – orbital position (II) is empty. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Kervath Main Belt[edit]

(III) the Kervath Main Belt orbits within the outer system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 0.7 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 50 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 0.45 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of icy bodies, is considered to lie at approximately 0.95 AU. The main inhabited body is named Leask, with a mean orbital distance of 0.81 AU around Joskoro and an orbital period of 1 year 98 days. It has a long axis of 460 km, a density of 3.84 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.017 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: -164°C in sunlight, -220°C in shadow.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

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