Nessor 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 Annistu Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Kuluda-Nessor System[edit]

The primary is Kuluda, a orange giant star. It has a luminosity of 185 Sols, a mass of 4.4 Sols, and a diameter of 36.733 million km – the corona of the star extends to 0.13 AU, within orbital position (I). The inner system consists of (II) a vacuum inner world, (III) a vacuum inner world, (IV) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (V) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (VII) the Nessor Main Belt, designated the mainworld – orbital position (I) is empty. (VIII-I) a ringed large gas giant, and (VIII-II) a small gas giant have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (IX) a large gas giant forms the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(VII) Nessor Main Belt[edit]

(VII) the Nessor Main Belt orbits within the H– region of the inner system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 2.6 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 100 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 2.2 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt is considered to lie at approximately 3 AU. The main inhabited body is named Pylos, with a mean orbital distance of 2.45 AU around Kuluda and an orbital period of 1 year 302 days. It has a long axis of 230 km, a density of 2.43 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.005 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: 130°C in sunlight, 45°C in shadow.
