Memmiso is a low-population water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water and a population of less than 10,000 sophonts.

System Data[edit]

Paget-Memmiso System[edit]

The primary is Paget, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.886 Sols, a mass of 0.98 Sols, and a diameter of 1.391 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a very thin atmosphere radworld, and (II) Memmiso, designated the mainworld. (III) a standard atmosphere hospitable world orbits within the habitable zone. (IV) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (VI) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(II) Memmiso[edit]

(II) Memmiso is designated the mainworld. It orbits Paget at a mean distance of 0.49 AU (73.3 million km), within the H– region of the inner system. It has an orbital period of 126 days 13 hours and a rotation period of 43 hours. The axial tilt is 18 degrees. Memmiso has a diameter of 14,223 km, a density of 4.13 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 1.78 bar and a composition of 69% nitrogen (N2), 29% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the high percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Memmiso is a water world: approximately 99.6% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water. Average tidal ranges exceed 1.2m. Mean surface temperature: 28°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is very active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Memmiso retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Calbax:

(IIa) Calbax (UWP Y310000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters/355,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 636 million km², Water surface area: 633 million km², Land surface area: 3 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Paget-Memmiso System[edit]

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

The temperate hospitable world lying in orbital position (III) (within the habitable zone) 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.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive cryophile native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that thrive in the harsh conditions. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

Historical data[edit]

At some point in antiquity, large stone statues were placed and/or constructed in elaborate patterns across the floor of the oceans of this planet. Strange serpent and worm-like body forms predominate. These formations bear superficial resemblances to alien species native to this region of space. Some of these massive stone forms allude to a large, possibly precursor species. The current human population has discovered these formations with relatively recent sonar surveys. The great depths at which they are located preclude extensive exploration with the technology available on world. There has been some effort to attract scientific teams from local universities on more advanced planets. These idols lie on large square platforms on the abyssal plains, the figures mass hundreds of metric tons. The origin of the stone is unknown.
