Venn is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Irikusk Subsector of Far Home Sector.

Star Name Hierarchy Color Classification Remarks
Venn Primary Orange K0 V


System Data[edit]

The primary is Oddo, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.42 Sols, a mass of 0.825 Sols, and a diameter of 1.263 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld. (III) Venn orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) a ringed large gas giant, and (VI) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Venn[edit]

(III) Venn is designated the mainworld. It orbits Oddo at a mean distance of 0.66 AU (98.7 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 215 days 15 hours and a rotation period of 33 hours. The axial tilt is 21 degrees. Venn has a diameter of 8,767 km, a density of 4.78 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.59 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.67 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 47% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 21°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Venn retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Saradal:

(IIIa) Saradal (UWP F210362-7, orbiting at 15 Diameters/130,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 241 million km², Land surface area: 128 million km², Water surface area: 113 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Oddo-Venn System[edit]

Venn, 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]

World starport[edit]

Venn has a good quality starport.

  • A Class B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World technology level[edit]

Venn possesses a Technology Level of TL–8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Advanced automobiles.
    • Water: Triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: Improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: Space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).

World government[edit]

Venn 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.
