Ka'sch is a low-population vacuum world, with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting 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.
  • It is a member of the Sath Alliance in the Sarudis Subsector of Far Home Sector.
  • Warning: humans are not welcome within the Sath Alliance. Those few humans that venture into its territory are generally met with a hostile reception and are closely monitored at all times.

System Data[edit]

Shath-Ka'sch System[edit]

The primary is Shath, a dim red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.00054 Sols, a mass of 0.07 Sols, and a diameter of 91,500 km. (I-I) a vacuum worldlet, (I-II) a vacuum worldlet, (I-III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV) a sparse stony planetoid belt, and (V) Ch'iia, an exotic atmosphere bigworld: (Va) Ka'sch is its only satellite and is designated the mainworld, form the outer system – orbital positions (II) and (III) are empty. Only Ch'iia retains a satellite.

(V) Ch'iia[edit]

(V) Ch'iia (UWP YEA0000-0) is designated a bigworld. It orbits Shath at a mean distance of 2.53 AU (378.5 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 15 years 77 days and a retrograde rotation of 265 hours. The axial tilt is 14 degrees. Ch'iia has a diameter of 22,669 km, a density of 5.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.71 G. The world is geologically very active. Its atmosphere is rated as Exotic, with a mean surface pressure of 5.23 bar and a composition of 92% nitrogen (N2), 5% carbon dioxide (CO2), 1% argon (Ar), 1% methane (CH4), and 1% carbon monoxide (CO), abiotic oxygen (O2), water vapor, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), azane (NH3), ethane (C2H6), diacetylene (C4H2), hydrogen (H2) and other trace gases. The world has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: -83°C. The climate is rated as Very Cold and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star sweep across the globe.


Ch'iia retains two natural satellite, a huge exotic atmosphere radworld companion world named Haa'ia, and Ka'sch, designated the mainworld:

(Va) Haa'ia (UWP YAA0000-0, orbiting at 4 Diameters/90,000 km)
(Vb) Ka'sch (designated the mainworld, orbiting at 55 Diameters/1.25 million km)

Mainworld Data[edit]

(Vb) Ka'sch[edit]

(Vb) Ka'sch is the outer major moon of (Va-Vb) the Ch'iia-Kithi binary planet system and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 55 diameters (1.25 million km), with an orbital period of 118 days 7 hours: it is tidally locked to Ch'iia. The axial tilt is 2 degrees relative to Ch'iia. Ka'sch has a diameter of 1,338 km, a density of 6.72 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.13 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Ch'iia cause frequent geological activity. The atmosphere is rated as Vacuum. The world has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: -94°C.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 56.2 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Shath-Ka'sch System[edit]

No native life is known to exist within the system.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This system is controlled by the Ka'sa Faction of the Sath Alliance.

World starport[edit]

Ka'sch 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]

Ka'sch 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]

Ka'sch 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.
