Lemote is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

System Data[edit]

Wanda-Lemote System[edit]

The primary is Wanda, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.67 Sols, a mass of 0.94 Sols, and a diameter of 1.266 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world and (II) a dense atmosphere stormworld. (III) Lemote orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (VI) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Lemote[edit]

(III) Lemote is designated the mainworld. It orbits Wanda at a mean distance of 0.7 AU (104.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 220 days 15 hours and a rotation period of 27.5 hours. The axial tilt is 23 degrees. Lemote has a diameter 9,715 km, a density of 6.02 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.83 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 2.03 bar and a composition of 69% nitrogen (N2), 30% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the high percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 39% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 22°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Lemote retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Ness:

(IIIa) Ness (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 14 Diameters/135,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 297 million km², Land surface area: 181 million km², Water surface area: 116 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

The hot stormworld lying in orbital position (II) (within the H– region of the inner system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and moisture. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

Lemote, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Lemote has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World technology level[edit]

Lemote possesses a Technology Level of TL–4.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone and telegraphs, widespread printing.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Trains and early automobiles.
    • Water: Clippers and steam ships.
    • Air: Dirigibles, balloons, very basic rockets.

World government[edit]

Lemote has a Representative Democracy government.

  • It is a government by elected representatives.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Republic.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State .
