System Data

Mardov-Falin System

The primary is Mardov, 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 vacuum worldlet, (II-I) a vacuum inner world, and (II-II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Falin orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (VI) a dense rocky planetoid belt, (VII) a ringed large gas giant, (VIII) a small gas giant, and (IX) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data

(III) Falin

(III) Falin is designated the mainworld. It orbits Mardov at a mean distance of 0.71 AU (106.3 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 240 days 14 hours and a retrograde rotation period of 33.5 hours. The axial tilt is 172 degrees. Falin has a diameter of 7,756 km, a density of 4.95 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.55 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.62 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 22% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 41% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 12°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the seas work across the globe.

Satellite

Falin retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Manticor:

(IIIa) Manticor (UWP Y210000-0, orbiting at 15 Diameters/115,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography

Total surface area: 189 million km², Land surface area: 112 million km², Water surface area: 77 million km².

Native Lifeforms

Mardov-Falin System

Falin, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

  • 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

Falin possesses a Technology Level of TL–4.

World government

Falin has an Impersonal Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies which are insulated from the governed.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
