Kardin has an unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. It is a Human dominated Non-Aligned world in the Darrian Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.
