Palique is a high-population, non-agricultural, industrial and icy world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

  • The surface of this world is ice-capped with nearly all of its water frozen.
  • As an industrial world, this planet has well-developed manufacturing and processing industries. Manufactured goods are a major export item.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them. This world designated as an Amber Zone.

It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Mora Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

  • Palique is also spelled "Pallique."

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Pallique is an ice-capped planet with only a trace oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere; its eccentric orbit results in a highly variable climate.

  • The Palique system contains two extremely rich asteroid belts which provided the primary draw for settlement and development. Palique itself is a captured planet; its eccentric orbit is inclined almost perpendicularly to the system's ecliptic plane. Palique suffers a series of planetary impacts twice each local year as the planet passes through one of the planetoid belts. As a result of the navigation hazards the IISS has registered the world as an Amber Zone. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Despite Pallique's inhospitable nature, its location and abundant resources have led it to become a high-population, high-technology world.

  • Pallique's most famed exports are its vacuum survival gear.
