Moncton is a nonindustrial fluid world.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This world has a research station engaged in the scientific pursuit of knowledge.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the The Blight Subsector of Diaspora Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • Homeworld of the Z'krall.

Native Sophont (NIL): Z'krall[edit]

The Swarmer or Z'krall is a shaggy, quadrocular multiped that grows more legs as it grows older and larger. Up to nine radially-arranged legs have been observed on old specimens. Most noteworthy, the swarmer has a complex society but no apparent means of communicating. It has no sound producing organs, signaling plumage, or other structure typically used for transmitting information. This has puzzled scientists for centuries.

In 1108 the means of communication was accidentally discovered. The clouds of insect-like "idiot gnats" that accompany the swarmers are actually cellular repeaters for extremely high-frequency radio emissions from the Swarmers. The gnats are produced within the Swarmers' bodies, secreted in their waste, and nourished by secretions on their skin; they function as mobile, reconfigurable antennae for the Swarmers. Once this was discovered, researchers contacted the Swarmers by radio, and found that they had an unusual facility for linguistics.

Further research was cut short when the research station was evacuated during the Rebellion.

Research Station Delta (Diaspora)[edit]

Moncton was the site of an Imperial Research Station named Research Station Delta (Diaspora) before the Rebellion.
