Zeta 2 is a barren hellworld, which would challenge the survival of nearly any sophont in Charted Space if it weren't already barren.

  • As a barren world, it has no overt population, government, or law level.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world could probably be populated by very determined colonists if any had an inclination to do so... This world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here. The world has been set aside to preserve indigenous life forms, to delay resource development, or for other reasons. It is a uninhabited Non-Aligned world in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This is the homeworld to Viji, a Minor Race.

Zeta 2 is a barren hellworld, which would challenge the survival of nearly any sophont in Charted Space if it weren't already barren.

  • As a barren world, it has no overt population, government, or law level.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world could probably be populated by very determined colonists if any had an inclination to do so... This world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here. The world has been set aside to preserve indigenous life forms, to delay resource development, or for other reasons. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This world is an Interface world, with a quarantine inspection facility for all ships. This is the homeworld to Viji, a Minor Race.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)

The system is located in the Vilis Trace.

The planet is a barren hellworld designed as a reserve and classified as a Red Zone. Zeta 2 has a corrosive atmosphere composed mainly of fluorine compounds, with 60% of the planet's surface covered by hydroflouric-acid seas.

The Railen Institute, a private research group, has established small orbital facility over Zeta 2 to study extreme-condition survival for vessels and probes.
