System Details
Primary M3 III
Planetoid Belts 1
Gas Giants 2

Frell is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and nonindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • The worldlets require 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 Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Frell Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Chaud-Frell System[edit]

The primary is Chaud, a gigantic red giant star. It has a luminosity of 1556 Sols, a mass of 6.96 Sols and a diameter of 225.4 million km – the corona extends to 0.75 AU, within orbital position (III). The inner system consists of (IV) a vacuum worldlet, (V) a vacuum inner world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (VII) a very thin atmosphere inner world, and (VIII) the Frell Main Belt, designated the mainworld – orbital positions (I) to (III) lie within the star. (IX) an exotic atmosphere bigworld orbits within the habitable zone. (X) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (XI) a small gas giant, (XII) a ringed small ice giant, and (XIII) a sparse stony planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(VIII) Frell Main Belt[edit]

(VIII) the Frell Main Belt orbits within the inner system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 11.3 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 300 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 9.6 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt is considered to lie at approximately 13 AU. The main inhabited body is named Frell Prime, with a mean orbital distance of 9.8 AU around Chaud and an orbital period of 11 years 229 days. It has a long axis of 760 km, a density of 3.15 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.034 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: 170°C in sunlight, -100°C in shadow.

Native lifeforms[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Frell 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]

Frell possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World government[edit]

Frell is governed by Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy. A single family or small group provides the leadership and important positions in the government. These positions are inherited by member of the group or their family members. The organization may be monarchy, with titles passed to family members. Or a plutocracy where inheritance of the family fortune includes government position. Or the organization may be more typical organization with positions of power inherited.
