Talamis is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a member of the Firstworlds in the Esqua Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Tesek-Talamis System[edit]

The primary is Tesek, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.778 Sols, a mass of 0.956 Sols and a diameter of 1.30 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, and (II) a trace atmosphere worldlet. (III) Talamis orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a small gas giant, (V) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VI) a large gas giant, (VII) a large gas giant, and (VIII) a exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the large worlds retain satellites.

Tarand Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Tarand, a red subdwarf star lying approximately 3,220 AU from Tesek. It has a luminosity of 0.00006 Sols, a mass of 0.058 Sols and a diameter of 87,700 million km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a small gas giant, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (V) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Only the gas giant retains satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Talamis[edit]

(III) Talamis is designated the mainworld. It orbits Talamis at a mean distance of 0.68 AU (101.7 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 209 days 11 hours and a rotation period of 19 hours. The axial tilt is 156 degrees. Talamis has a diameter of 11,087 km, a density of 5.45 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.86 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 1.45 bar and a composition of 69% nitrogen (N2), 29% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the high percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 94% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water and sheets of water-ice: average tidal ranges exceed 0.35m. Mean surface temperature: -12°C. The climate is rated as Cold and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is very active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Talamis retains a single natural satellite, a vacuum worldlet named Turuman:

(IIIa) Turuman (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 45 Diameters/500,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 386 million km², Water surface area: 363 million km², Land surface area: 23 million km².

  • Breathing the atmosphere without suitable filtration equipment will cause oxygen narcosis and oxygen toxicity. Symptoms include sensations of euphoria and nausea, seizures, bouts of physical rigidity followed by convulsions and unconsciousness, breathing difficulties, damage to the lungs and the heart, and death.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Tesek-Talamis System[edit]

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

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Talamis has a poor quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Talamis possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Talamis has a Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy government.

  • It is a government by a restricted minority, with little or no input from the masses.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
