Baram is a barren water world with no overt population, government, or law level.

  • Its surface is 90% or more covered in an ocean of water.
  • Any inhabitants of this world would need to live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • This world could be populated if anyone had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Troigean Subsector of Range Sector.
  • This world is a "Twilight Zone World", a planet that is tidally-locked to its primary world, giving a hot pole, a cold pole and a twilight zone in-between.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The Baram 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.

System Data[edit]

The worlds of the system have been remotely surveyed. They consist of:

Mainworld Data[edit]

Limited data is available about the body nominated as the mainworld. All of the data has been gathered over centuries of remote observation.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 10,400km and 12,000km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.7G and 0.9G. The horizon will appear about 4.7km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 0.71 to 1.49 atmospheres. While a Standard Atmosphere does not require survival gear this atmosphere also contains an unusual taint such as such as disease, a hazardous gas mix, pollutants, or sulfur compounds which requires the use of a Filter Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–3 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 95-100% of its surface covered by liquid water with only a few islands and archipelagos. Wilderness refueling is possible. Such worlds are Water Worlds or Ocean Worlds.
