Cull is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • 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.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Ragol Subsector of Course Sector.

System Data

Glean System

The primary is Glean, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 9.68 Sols, a mass of 1.78 Sols, and a diameter of 2.393 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) a trace atmosphere inner world, (III) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (V) a sparse stony planetoid belt. (VI) a ringed gas giant orbits within the habitable zone: it retains (VIc) a very thin atmosphere hospitable moon. (VII) a large gas giant forms the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Peck-Cull Subsystem

The companion is Peck, an ordinary yellow main sequence star that orbits Glean at a mean distance of 735 AU (orbital position (XIV), 110 billion km) and has an orbital period of 14,936 years. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols, and a diameter of 1.399 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (III) a dense stony planetoid belt. (IV) Garner, a ringed small gas giant orbits within the habitable zone: (IVb) Cull is its outer satellite and is designated the mainworld. (V) a small ice giant forms the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Winnow Subsystem

The far companion is Winnow, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Peck at a mean distance of 11.6 AU (orbital position (VIII), 1.74 billion km) and has an orbital period of 39 years. It has a luminosity of 0.00054 Sols, a mass of 0.07 Sols, and a diameter of 91,500 km. (I) a vacuum iceworld, (II) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (III) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(IV) Garner

(IV) Garner is a ringed small gas giant that orbits Peck at a mean distance of 0.96 AU (143.6 million km), within the habitable zone, and has an orbital period of 340 years 63 days. It has a diameter of 33,500 km and is a deep blue colour. It retains a family of two major satellites of which the outer, (IVb) Cull, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data

(IVb) Cull

(IVb) Cull is the outer of the two major moons of (IV) Garner and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 15 diameters (502,000 million km), with an orbital period of 54 days 10 hours: it is tidally locked to Garner. The axial tilt is 1 degree relative to Garner. Cull has a diameter of 12,746 km, a density of 5.45 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.99 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Garner cause regular geological activity. The atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 1.04 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Around 56% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 15°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld geography and topography

Total surface area: 510 million km², Water surface area: 286 million km², Land surface area: 224 million km².

Native lifeforms

The hospitable moon orbiting the large gas giant lying in orbital position (VI) (within the habitable zone) around Glean has extensive native life, consisting of minute multicellular organisms that can be found in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

History & Background (Dossier)

World starport

Cull 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

Cull possesses a Technology Level of TL–3.

World government

Cull has a Civil Service Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies employing individuals selected for their expertise.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
