Point of Interest: Habitation Domes of Khiradu[edit]

The domes of Khiradu support 300 million xenophobes who spend much of their economy on the high-tech support needed to sustain them against their environment: cold, dark, thin atmosphere, and a constant blast from the radiation belt around their gas giant primary.

History and background[edit]

It is not clear why the settler founded their colony on this moon well outside the habitable zone — it is thought they were exiled from some other world. Their energy and industry have raised their population, and let them spread across their world. Outsiders are not welcome on-planet. The people have a gloomy religion which portrays a despotic overlord who frowns upon mortals, especially those non-believers who fail to appease it.

Far above the surface, Khiradu Orbial offers a class A Starport on the x-boat route through the sector, with excellent orbital facilities, repairs, supplies, and stopover facilities. Scouts from the bases in adjacent system can often be found here swapping tales. Gambling is encourages along with other pursuits to divert and entertain. The elite bureaucrats from Khiradu also visit the station, distinguished by their formal-cut grey suits and ornate swords, supervising the running of the station.
