Farhaven is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • 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.
  • It is a member of the Firstworlds in the Esqua Subsector of Far Home Sector.
  • This world is also commonly known as Depot (FH 1009).

System Data[edit]

Halister-Farhaven System[edit]

The primary is Halister, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.284 Sols, a mass of 0.723 Sols, and a diameter of 1.073 million km. The inner system consists of (I-I) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (I-II) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Farhaven orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (VI-I) an exotic atmosphere radworld, and (VI-II) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Farhaven[edit]

(III) Farhaven is designated the mainworld. It orbits Halister at a mean distance of 0.58 AU (49.3 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 189 days 18 hours and a rotation period of 17 hours. The axial tilt is 16 degrees. Farhaven has a diameter of 9,636 km, a density of 4.89 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.69 G. The world is geologically very active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.85 bar and a composition of 82% nitrogen (N2), 16% oxygen (O2), 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), and 1% argon (Ar), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the relatively low percentage of atmospheric oxygen and airborne sulfur compounds of volcanic origin. Approximately 48% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 31°C. The climate is rated as Hot and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems, driven by the star and the seas, drive across the globe.


Farhaven retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Capstone:

(IIIa) Capstone (UWP H210000-0, orbiting at 8 Diameters/75,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 292 million km², Land surface area: 152 million km², Water surface area: 140 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Halister-Farhaven System[edit]

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

No other world in the system is known to have native life.
