System Data[edit]

Telec-Scirta System[edit]

The primary is Telec, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 2485 Sols, a mass of 469.7 Sols, and a diameter of 409 million km: the corona of the star lies at approximately 1.37 AU, just within orbital position (V). The inner system consists of (VI) a vacuum worldlet, (VII) a very thin atmosphere inner world, (VIII) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (IX) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world – orbital positions (I) through (IV) lie within the star and orbital position (V) is empty. (X) Scirta orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (XI) a dense atmosphere bigworld, and (XII) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Sandosa Subsystem[edit]

The primary is an ordinary red main sequence star that lies approximately 8,350 AU from Telec. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) a standard atmosphere radworld orbits within the habitable zone. It does not retain satellites.

  • The star experiences periodic flare activity.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(X) Scirta[edit]

(X) Scirta is designated the mainworld. It orbits Telec at a mean distance of 40.4 AU (6.03 billion km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 11 years 310 days and a rotation period of 41.5 hours. The axial tilt is 22 degrees. Scirta has a diameter of 5,128 km, a density of 5.22 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.38 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.51 bar and a composition of 69% nitrogen (N2), 30% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the very high percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 38% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.1m. Mean surface temperature: 4°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas surge across the surface.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 83 million km², Land surface area: 51 million km², Water surface area: 32 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Telec-Scirta System[edit]

Scirta, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold bigworld lying in orbital position (XI) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive extremophile native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that thrive in the harsh conditions. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

Sandosa Subsystem[edit]

The temperate radworld lying in orbital position (I) (within the habitable zone) has primitive radiation-tolerant native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that thrive in the harsh conditions. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.
