Bezik is an agricultural, nonindustrial garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires 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.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces. The world will grow even quicker when its industrial sector begins to develop.
  • This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.
  • It is a part of the Liberated Stars in the Tsorva Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Santanna System[edit]

The primary is Santanna, a yellow giant star. It has a luminosity of 50 Sols, a mass of 2.5 Sols, and a diameter of 9.88 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a trace atmosphere inner world, (III) a vacuum worldlet, (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (V) an exotic atmosphere stormworld – orbital positions (VI) through (XII) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (XIII) a vacuum worldlet, (XIV) a very large gas giant, and (XV) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Only the stormworld and the gas giant retain satellites.

Moralla-Bezik Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Moralla, an ordinary orange main sequence star that orbits Santanna at 21.1 AU (orbital position (X), 3.16 billion km) and has an orbital period of 61 years 109 days. It has a luminosity of 0.056 Sols, a mass of 0.5214 Sols, and a diameter of 773,000 km. (I) Bezik orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a dense stony planetoid belt, (III) a small gas giant, and (IV) a large gas giant form the outer system. Both of the gas giants retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Bezik[edit]

(I) Bezik is designated the mainworld and orbits Moralla at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 38 days 15 hours: it is tidally locked to Moralla. The axial tilt is 4 degrees. Bezik has a diameter of 11,433 km, a density of 5.35 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.87 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.53 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne), and other trace gases. Approximately 58% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 32°C. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems, driven by the star and the seas, cross the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 411 million km², Water surface area: 238 million km², Land surface area: 173 million km².

  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the Twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Bezik, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Bezik has a Class D Starport, a poor quality installation which has few of the expected amenities. There is unrefined fuel for starships and a limited variety of ship provisions. There is no shipyard of any kind, but there may be parts and technical support for doing minor services and repair. Ports of this classification generally consist of only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World technology level[edit]

Bezik possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Bezik has a Captive Government or Colony. The world is ruled by an external government, there is no self-rule. A colony or conquered area. The local government is an oligarchy appointed by, and answerable only to, the external government.
