System Data[edit]

The primary is Gallot, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.064 Sols, a mass of 0.5376 Sols, and a diameter of 778,000 km. (I) Durben is a small gas giant that orbits within the habitable zone: (Ia) Ransall is its largest satellite and is designated the mainworld. (II, III) two rocky vacuum worlds, (IV) a large gas giant, (V) a sparse rocky planetoid belt, (VI) a small gas giant, (VII) a trace atmosphere world, (IX) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (X) a small icy vacuum world form the outer system. All of the gas giants retain satellites.

(I) Durben[edit]

(I) Durben is a small gas giant that orbits Gallot at a mean distance of 0.16 AU, within the habitable zone, and has an orbital period of 31 days 21 hours. It has a diameter of 33,000km and is a pale green-blue colour. It retains a family of two major satellites of which the outer, (Ib) Ransall, is designated the mainworld. A huge white storm, lying to the south of the equator and covering around 5% of the surface of the planet, has been raging for more than two centuries.
