  • This is a frozen world, with a climate of extremely low temperatures.
  • This world has a research station engaged in the scientific pursuit of knowledge.
  • It is a main world which is a satellite of either a gas giant or another world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Harlequin Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • Shapam was originally colonized by nearby Champa (Solomani Rim 3109) around 500.
