Aplin 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...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Rukilu Subsector of Shandara Sector.


Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The Aplin system was officially surveyed by the University of Tal Varisa Deep Sky Program.

  • The results of the survey are available as the DSP Listing, a comprehensive star catalog first published in 5550AD.
