System Data[edit]

Goolan-Calsan System[edit]

The primary is Goolan, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.21 Sols, a mass of 1.04 Sols, and a diameter of 1.433 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Calsan orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) a ringed large gas giant, and (VII) a small gas giant form the outer zone. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Calsan[edit]

(IV) Calsan is designated the mainworld. It orbits primary at a mean distance of 0.98 AU (146.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 350 days 21 hours and a rotation period of 27.5 hours. The axial tilt is 16 degrees. Calsan has a diameter 8,135 km, a density of 5.66 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.66 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.91 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 62% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 24°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellites:[edit]

Calsan retains two satellites a very thin atmosphere hospitable world named Rasenik and an ice capped vacuum worldlet named Pomardo:

(IVa) Rasenik, UWP Y322000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters (203,000 km)
(IVb) Pomardo, UWP Y201000-0, orbiting at 30 Diameters (244,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 208 million km², Water surface area: 129 million km², Land surface area: 79 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Calsan has extensive native life. Their metabolic processes maintain a cycle of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Calsan 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]

Calsan possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Calsan is governed by a Representative Democracy where government leadership is representatives elected by eligible voters. What determines an eligible voter varies. The representatives determine policy, including selecting members of the bureaucracy. There can be referendum, votes by eligible voters on specific subjects.
