Jump map from [1]

Lasen 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 Solomani Confederation in the Alba Subsector of Alpha Crucis Sector.

World Data

A gigantic red Sun shines from a heavily clouded Sky. There is no wind. The mornings are cold, the nights are very, very cold. The atmospheric pressure is comparable to earth conditions in a depth of 575 m. The humidity is very high. The gravity is slightly lower than earth standard. A standard sized human (80kg) will weigh about 58 kg. Lasen is a non-industrial world.

World Starport

STARPORT TYPE B: Refined Fuel is available. Spaceships up to 100 tons can be built. The port facilities are about average for its class. Each year 19525 passengers are handled and .51 Million tons of cargo shipped. The system has a low traffic volume. There are about 7 Type R (400t) arrivals each day. The port is secured by a single fence with a gatehouse. The whole port measures 2.1 by 2.1 km.

DAILY freight and passenger amounts:

MINOR ROUTE: Killbrouha (J-6) 63t, 20P. Cloudia (J-4) 997t, 19P.

Available trade goods : Very small amounts (-4) of Copper, Tin, Silver, Aluminium. Very small amounts (-4) of Radioactives, Textiles, Polymers, Pharmaceuticals. Tiny amounts (-5) of Crystals, Gems. Negligible amounts (-7) of Processed Metals, Steel, Special Alloys, Tools, mechanical parts, Clothing, Computers, Entertainment, Software. Negligible amounts (-7) of Aircraft, ATV, Machine tools, Farm machinery, Recordings.

World Technology Level

Sci13, Mat13, Eng13, Inf13, Tra13, Wea10 - Bio13, Med13, Env13
SCIENCE : Continued elaboration on unified field theory leads to practical methods for manipulating the strong and weak nuclear forces.
MATERIAL : Gravitic manipulation allows the creation of superdense materials. Nanotechnology finally becomes practical for industrial applications, although these are very limited.
ENERGY : Advanced fusion power plants have become the backbone of the planetary energy economy.
INFORMATION : Artificial intelligence makes computers capable of some of the same self-programming capability and flexibility as biological intelligence (selfawareness is not yet possible).
TRANSPORTATION : Grav vehicles become the basis for all forms of transportation (land, sea, air and space). Personal grav belts. Jump-capable cultures develop jump-3 drive. Others will attain their first interstellar capability using slower-than-light fusion drives.
WEAPONS : Caseless ammunition. Energy weapons appear in the heavy-support role (laser and particle cannon). Experimental laser small-arms are produced late in the period. 
BIOLOGY : Practical nanosurgery. First brain implants. Partial theory of aging.
MEDICINE : Practical nanosurgery (still too expensive for widespread use). Partial panimmunity. Neural implants can interface directly with the brain, treating certain kinds of mental dysfunction. Cheap, reliable clone transplants.
ENVIRONMENTAL : Gravitic support of large buildings. Grav technology allows stationary floating cities late in the period. Advanced weather control. Incremental advances in terraforming techniques, advanced ecosystem reconstruction.

World Government

ALIGNMENT   :  EXCHANGE : 1.05 Credits
POPULATION  :         32,406
GOVERNMENT  : Participating democracy
LAW LEVEL   : Body pistols, explosives and poison gas probibited
TECH LEVEL  : Average Imperial

World Military

NAVYSIZE    : 2 x Fighter (20 t)

World Economy

Lasen is a world of above average importance, with below average resources and a very small labour force as well as a very weak infrastructure. The overall efficiency is mediocre. The world generates 72 Resource units, which puts it in the 1% Range.
