System Data[edit]

Icho-Quat System[edit]

The primary is Icho, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.67 Sols, a mass of 0.94 Sols, and a diameter of 1.266 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, (II-I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (II-II) an exotic atmosphere radworld. (III) Quat orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VI) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VII-I) a ringed large gas giant, (VII-II) a ringed small gas giant, and (VIII) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Quat[edit]

(III) Quat is designated the mainworld. It orbits Goji at a mean distance of 0.81 AU (121.2 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 274 days 15 hours and a rotation period of 32 hours. The axial tilt is 26 degrees. Quat has a diameter of 10,783 km, a density of 5.23 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.80 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.93 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 71% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 5°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 365 million km², Water surface area: 259 million km², Land surface area: 106 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Icho-Quat System[edit]

Quat, the mainworld, has primitive mesophile native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that thrive in the harsh conditions. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Quat has a routine quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Quat possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Quat has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
