History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Galatea is named for its vast oceans and storms.

  • Discovered in 439 by independent explorer Mathias Farnha, the planet possesses over 5000 islands which are mostly unstable due to geologic "tides" in the planet's crust.
  • Though rich in minerals and possibly some heavy metals, mining is virtually impossible because of the violent activity of the faulting crust.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Galatea has a Class E Starport, a frontier quality installation with few 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 a downport.

World Population (P)[edit]

World Demographics[edit]

World Government (G)[edit]

Galatea has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan. The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.
