Natar is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and nonindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant 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.
  • The worldlets require extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Natar Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Zened-Natar System[edit]

The primary is Zened, a swollen red bright giant star. It has a luminosity of 12,800 Sols, a mass of 15.6 Sols and a diameter of 860 million km – the corona of the star lies at approximately 2.87 AU, within orbital position (VI). The inner system consists of (VI) a hot large gas giant orbiting very close to the surface of the star, (IX) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (X) the Natar Main Belt, designated the mainworld, and (XI) a vacuum worldlet – orbital positions (I) to (V) lie within the gigantic star and orbital positions (VII) and (VIII) are empty. (XII) a large gas giant orbits within the habitable zone. (XIII-I) a vacuum iceworld, (XII-II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (XIV-I) a vacuum iceworld, and (XIV-II) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the outer worlds retain satellites.

  • The star experiences frequent flare activity.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(X) Natar Main Belt[edit]

(X) the Natar Main Belt orbits within the inner zone and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 38.8 AU from Zened and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 150 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 28.9 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt is considered to lie at approximately 50 AU. The main inhabited body is named Port Natar, with a mean orbital distance of 35.2 AU around Zened and an orbital period of 52 years 320 days. It has a long axis of 450 km, a density of 3.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.025 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: 195°C.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

World starport[edit]

Natar has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World technology level[edit]

Natar possesses a Technology Level of TL–10 or TL-A in Hexadecimal Notation.

World government[edit]

Natar is governed by a Representative Democracy where government leadership is representatives elected by eligible voters. What determines an eligible voter varies. The representatives determine policy, including selecting members of the bureaucracy. There can be referendum, votes by eligible voters on specific subjects.
