Ayayo is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and are both non-agricultural and nonindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • They require 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.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • These worldlets have very few prospect for economic expansion.
  • This world contains an archaeological site with suspected high-tech remnants of the now-vanished Ancients precursor race.
  • This world has a research station engaged in the scientific pursuit of knowledge.
  • This world is part of the Aslan Hierate, as a world where multiple clans have split control of the planet, in the Hkea'as Subsector of Trojan Reach Sector.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

The Ayayo Transit Point was established as a jump-2 link from the crossroads at Stehasu (Trojan Reach 1534) to the Ya’soisthea base at Afeakter (Trojan Reach 1835).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ayayo is an Aslan Hierate world in an asteroid belt in the Hkea'as Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

There are a number of belt miner communities in the system, operating out of a large asteroid port called Tealreala.

  • In 1081, a miner on the fringes of the Lesser Ayayo Belt detected an unusual concentration of heavy metals in asteroid A563-221-9439G.
  • Subsequent excavation discovered an Ancient site, a pyramidal object roughly thirty meters on each axis.
  • Since the pyramid’s discovery, several other smaller items have been found in the asteroids of the lesser belt.
  • Access to the lesser belt is restricted and the system is patrolled to ensure no Ancient artifacts go missing.
