Matrix is a nonindustrial, oceanic water world.

  • It is covered with very deep oceans with less than 1% of its land above sea level.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 1% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Virian Subsector of Banners Sector.
  • It is the homeworld of the Inyx and the third planet orbiting a yellow main sequence star.
  • The Inyx name for this world is untranslatable.
  • In addition to Matrix the Inyx also directly control 17 systems in Ahriman Sector.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Matrix is an medium-sized world with a thin but breathable oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. The planet is covered with water, with only a few island chains, which are crowded with factory-cities. Matrix has a rather warm climate with very turbulent weather conditions, as storms and hurricanes never break on land.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Matrix is located in Banners Sector.

  • Matrix’s population consists of 2 billion Inyx and an estimated 5 billion sapient genetic constructs and slaves. Most of these non-Inyx have been designed or altered to live underwater, with their lungs replaced with bionic gills or genetic modifications.
  • For geopolitical reasons, nearly all alien slaves on Matrix are non-Aslan: most are Human or Dolphin.
