Cha'aika is a fluidic hellworld of sophonts struggling to survive in a inhospitable environment.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • It is a part of the Sath Exploration program in the Aasa'tha Subsector of Course Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.
  • A Rogue World can be found within the same astrographic mapping hex.

System Data[edit]

Hak'aha-Cha'aika System[edit]

The primary is Hak'aha, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.57 Sols, a mass of 0.894 Sols, and a diameter of 1.265 million km. The inner system consists of (I) an exotic atmosphere radworld, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Cha'aika orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV-I) a large gas giant, (IV-II) a dense stony planetoid belt, (V) a ringed large gas giant, (VI) a small gas giant, and (VII) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Thaak Khaa Rogue World[edit]

(I) Thaak Khaa is a Rogue World, a large gas giant currently lying approximately 0.42 parsecs (1.35 light years, 85,375 AU) rimward-trailing of the Hak'aha-Cha'aika system. Because it lies within the same astrographic mapping hex it is listed as the fourth gas giant component of the Hak'aha-Cha'aika system. However, the Sath have declared it to be a separate system and have designated its second moon, Cha'aika Thaak, as the mainworld. This is largely a political gesture, an attempt to maximise the number of systems under Sath dominion.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Cha'aika[edit]

(III) Cha'aika is designated the mainworld. It orbits Hak'aha at a mean distance of 0.66 AU (98.7 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 207 days 3 hours and a rotation period of 31 hours. The axial tilt is 46 degrees. Cha'aika has a diameter of 9,424 km, a density of 6.16 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.82 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Insidious, with a mean surface pressure of 75.4 bar and a composition of 97% carbon dioxide (CO2), 2% nitrogen (N2), and 1% sulfur dioxide (SO2), argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon monoxide (CO), helium (He), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 6% of the surface is covered in lakes of sulfuric acid (H2SO4). Mean surface temperature: 195°C. The climate is rated as Inferno and experiences major seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is very active and violent weather systems driven by the star surge across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 279 million km², Land surface area: 262 million km², Fluid surface area: 17 million km².
