System Data[edit]

Coogan-Keralim System[edit]

The primary is Coogan, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0136 Sols, a mass of 0.3626 Sols, and a diameter of 551,000 km. (I-I) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (I-II) Keralim, designated the mainworld, (II) a very thin atmosphere iceworld, and (III) a exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Dhargin Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Dhargin, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Coogan at a mean separation of 2.57 AU (orbital position (VI), 384.5 million km) and has an orbital period of 6 years 308 days. Dhargin has a luminosity of 0.00152 Sols, a mass of 0.093 Sols, and a diameter of 127,000 km (I) a vacuum worldlet, and (II) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Neither world retains satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-II) Keralim[edit]

(I-II) Keralim is designated the mainworld. It orbits Coogan at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 46 days 8 hours: it is tidally locked to Coogan. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Keralim has a diameter of 2,993 km, a density of 4.52 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.19 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Trace, with a mean surface pressure of 0.03 bar and a composition of 73% carbon dioxide (CO2), 18% nitrogen (N2), 6% methane (CH4), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), azane (NH3), carbon monoxide (CO), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 24% of the surface is covered in sheets of water ice. Mean surface temperature: -65°C. The climate is rated as Very Cold and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is ethereal and minor weather systems driven by the star and by cryovolcanic outgassing ghost across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 28 million km², Land surface area: 21 million km², Ice surface area: 7 million km².

  • Keralim is a Twilight Zone World. Much of the ice is concentrated on the dark face of the world.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Coogan-Keralim System[edit]

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

Dhargin Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Keralim 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 technology level[edit]

Keralim possesses a Technology Level of TL–8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Advanced automobiles.
    • Water: Triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: Improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: Space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).

World government[edit]

Keralim is governed by a Corporate Polity with a single corporation with a typical corporate structure as a government. A company town, or world. The typical corporate run world usually has a single purpose. Examples include mining, agriculture, or other kinds of resource extraction. But rather than a simple base of operations, there are facilities for housing workers and their families including hospitals, schools, and other infrastructure. How, or if, the children of the workers are incorporated into the workforce varies with companies. The corporation running the world may be a subsidiary of a larger interstellar corporation.
