Navant is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Tsorva Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System data[edit]

Kerris-Navant System[edit]

The primary is Kerris, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) Navant orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a trace atmosphere world and (III) a large gas giant form the starward outer system. Orbital positions (IV) through (VII) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (VIII) a small gas giant, (IX, X) two exotic atmosphere worlds, and (XI) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the spaceward outer system. Most of the worlds retain satellites.

Jemm Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Jemm, a red subdwarf star that orbits Kerris at 2.7 AU (orbital position (VI), 254 million km) and has an orbital period of 6 years 204 days. It has a luminosity of 0.0015 Sols, a mass of 0.0925 Sols, and a diameter of 53,200 km. (I) a sparse rocky planetoid belt, (II) a small vacuum world, and (III) a small gas giant form the outer system. The gas giant retains satellites.

(I) Navant[edit]

(I) Navant is designated the mainworld and orbits primary at a mean distance of 0.2 AU (29.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 48 days 7 hours and a rotation period of 33 hours. The axial tilt is 26.5 degrees. Navant has a diameter of 6,607 km, a density of 4.25 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.4 G. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.25 bar and a composition of 81% nitrogen, 18% oxygen, and 1% argon, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 44% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: -10°C. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems, driven by the star and the seas, work across the globe. The climate is seasonal and weather patterns follow regular cycles during the local year.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 137 million km², Land surface area: 77 million km², Water surface area: 60 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Navant has extensive but primitive native life, entirely consisting of microscopic organisms that exist anywhere that they can find liquid water. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Navant has a poor quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Navant possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Navant 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).
