New Groton is a preindustrial, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support 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 a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This is a "Puzzle" world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Storm Subsector of Beyond Sector.
  • New Groton owns the world Station Four (Beyond Aslani)
  • New Groton is the location of a Merchant Service Headquarters. [2]
