Gemini Subsector, subsector O of the Solomani Rim Sector, is named for the bright stars Castor and Pollux.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Although Castor and Pollux are very similar stars, their asteroid belts are quite dissimilar. The Pollux Belt is little more than gravel, and commercial exploitation would be unprofitable. The Castor Belt is, on the other hand, rich in metals, ices, and simple organics, and has many large planetoids suitable for habitat construction. Consequently, Pollux is uninhabited and unvisited; Castor supports a population of five billion.

Subsector Summary: 1116[edit]

Gemini, subsector O of Solomani Rim contains 19 worlds with an estimated population of 17 billion, a per capita income of Cr7,095, and a total economy is BCr123,261. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr3,473 through 16 starports (8 Class A, 3 Class B, 4 Class C, 1 Class D) employing 502,160 people. Driving this interstellar trade are one Agricultural (Ag) world, two Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, three Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, three Pre-Industrial (Pi) worlds, one Rich (Ri) world, and one Industrial (In) world. The governments in Gemini maintain five Naval bases, and three Military bases. The average technology level is 10 (with most between 7 and 13). The highest technology level is 14 at Hamilcar (Solomani Rim 1738) and Aristotle (Solomani Rim 1740).

Gemini, subsector O of Solomani Rim contains 29 stars and 209 identified planets; 14 monostellar systems, three binary systems, one trinary system, and one system with four or more stars. 15 of the 19 systems (78%) have native gas giants. There are two Asteroid (As) belts, no Desert (De) worlds, no Garden (Ga) worlds, no Ice-capped (Ic) worlds, two Poor (Po) worlds, two Vacuum (Va) worlds, and three Water (Wa) or Ocean (Oc) worlds.

Gemini has an estimated population of 17 billion distributed across four High population (Hi) worlds, four Moderate population (Ph) worlds, four Non-industrial (Ni) worlds, four Low population (Lo) worlds, and one Barren (Ba) world. The highest population worlds are Hamilcar (Solomani Rim 1738), Castor (Solomani Rim 2339), Aristotle (Solomani Rim 1740), and Chernozem (Solomani Rim 1836). The population consists of 2 sophont groups.

The Solomani Confederation has an estimated population of 16 billion distributed across four High population (Hi) worlds, two Moderate population (Ph) worlds, three Non-industrial (Ni) worlds, two Low population (Lo) worlds, and one Barren (Ba) world. The highest population worlds are Hamilcar (Solomani Rim 1738), Castor (Solomani Rim 2339), Aristotle (Solomani Rim 1740), and Chernozem (Solomani Rim 1836). The population consists of 2 sophont groups.

Third Imperium, Vegan Autonomous District[edit]

The Third Imperium, Vegan Autonomous District has jurisdiction over six worlds with an estimated population of 1 billion, a per capita income of Cr4,641, and a total economy is BCr6,359. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr189 through 6 starports (3 Class A, 0 Class B, 3 Class C, 0 Class D) employing 36,605 people. Driving this interstellar trade are one Agricultural (Ag) world, no Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, two Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, three Pre-Industrial (Pi) worlds, one Rich (Ri) world, and no Industrial (In) worlds. The governments in Third Imperium, Vegan Autonomous District maintain two Naval bases. The average technology level is 11 (with most between 9 and 12). The highest technology level is 13 at Hephaistos (Solomani Rim 1931).

The Third Imperium, Vegan Autonomous District has an estimated population of 1 billion distributed across no High population (Hi) worlds, two Moderate population (Ph) worlds, one Non-industrial (Ni) world, one Low population (Lo) world, and no Barren (Ba) worlds. The highest population worlds are Inferno (Solomani Rim 2131) and Ys (Solomani Rim 1732). The population consists of 2 sophont groups.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • Hephaistos is one of the few terraforming projects completed by the Imperium. Begun during the Interstellar Wars, the project was alternately abandoned and resumed several times. The project was finally completed by the Hephaistos Company, chartered by the Imperium in 632, and the planet was opened in 835 and sections were sold off to several colonial groups. Although the project is officially complete, work still proceeds to reduce and fine-tune the ocean and atmosphere.
  • Smade's Planet was settled by a single family a century ago, taking advantage of a dormant Imperial claim to the world; to date, the Solomani have not contested their presence. The Smade family, eager for news and offworld goods, welcomes visitors and traders (although local prices are extremely high).
