System Data[edit]

Soldier-Morrow System[edit]

The primary is Soldier, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.42 Sols, a mass of 0.825 Sols, and a diameter of 1.263 million km. The inner system consists of (I-I) a vacuum inner world, (I-II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Morrow orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V-I) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (V-II) a ringed large gas giant, (VI) a small gas giant, (VII-I) a large gas giant, (VII-II) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (VIII) a ringed large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(III) Morrow is designated the mainworld. It orbits Soldier at a mean distance of 0.62 AU (92.8 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 196 days 8 hours and a rotation period of 23 hours. The axial tilt is 33 degrees. Morrow has a diameter of 9,568 km, a density of 6.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.93 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.97 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 73% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 33°C. The climate is rated as Hot and experiences major seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Satellites[edit]

Morrow retains two natural satellites, a vacuum worldlet named Panath and a exotic atmosphere worldlet named Rumu:

(IIIa) Panath (UWP G100365-8, orbiting at 35 Diameters/335,000 km)
(IIIb) Rumu (UWP Y3A0000-0, orbiting at 45 Diameters/430,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 288 million km², Water surface area: 210 million km², Land surface area: 78 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Soldier-Morrow System[edit]

Morrow, 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 (XX) (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.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Morrow (2031 Far Home is a major mercenary clearing house, a supply depot and naval base. It is also the site of the largest military hospital in the rimward half of the sector.

World Starport[edit]

Morrow has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World Technology Level[edit]

Morrow possesses a Technology Level of TL–8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Advanced automobiles.
    • Water: Triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: Improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: Space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft.

World Government[edit]

Morrow has a Balkanized government.

  • No central ruling authority exists. Rival governments compete for control.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Balkanization.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
