Nug is a poor, non-agricultural and nonindustrial world.

  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It has few prospects for economic development. Life here is drastically bleak.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Farin Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Gangan-Nug System[edit]

The primary is Gangan, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.04 Sols, a mass of 0.489 Sols and a diameter of 764,000 km. (I) Regent, a spectacularly ringed small gas giant orbits in the habitable zone: (Ib) Nug is its second satellite and is designated the mainworld. (II) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (IV) a large gas giant, (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (VI) a vacuum iceworld, (VII) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (VIII-I) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VIII-II) a vacuum iceworld, and (X) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system – orbital position (IX) is empty. Most of the worlds retain satellites.

(I) Regent[edit]

(I) Regent is a small gas giant that orbits Gangan at a mean distance of 0.17 AU (25.4 million km), within the habitable zone, and has an orbital period of 36 days 15 hours. It has a diameter of 32,000 km and an atmosphere consisting of 90% hydrogen (H2), 10% helium (He), and less than 1% methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), water vapor (H2O) and other trace gases. It is a faintly banded reddish-brown color with large semi-permanent equatorial storms. It retains a family of three major satellites. Regent has a very thin, extremely reflective ring system.


Regent has a ring system and retains three major satellites:

(Ir) Ring System (UWP YR00000-0, extending to 2 Diameters/65,000 km)
(Ia) Goro (UWP Y201000-0, orbiting at 6 Diameters/190,000 km)
(Ib) Nug (designated the mainworld, orbiting at 13 Diameters/415,000 km)
(Ic) Musgu (UWP Y310000-0, orbiting at 20 Diameters/640,000 km)

Mainworld Data[edit]

(Ib) Nug[edit]

(Ib) Nug is the second and largest of the three moons of (I) Regent and is designated the mainworld. Nug orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 13 diameters (415,000 km), with an orbital period of 40 days 9 hours: it is tidally locked to Regent. It has an axial tilt of 5 degrees relative to Regent. It has a diameter of 4,973 km, a density of 5.29 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.37 G. Tidal stresses caused by the gravitational pull of Regent cause frequent geological activity. Nug retains an atmosphere rated as Very Thin, with a surface pressure of 0.26 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 18% oxygen (O2), 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), neon (Ne), ozone (O3), xenon (Xe) and other trace gases. Around 22% of the surface is covered in lakes and seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges are around 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 10°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate dust-laden weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 78 million km², Land surface area: 61 million km², Water surface area: 17 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Gangan-Nug System[edit]

Nug, the mainworld, has extensive but primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic mesophile organisms that exist in any location that has a source of moisture. Their metabolic processes maintain a cycle of atmospheric renewal.

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Nug 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]

Nug possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

World government[edit]

Nug is governed by a Feudal Technocracy. Society divides itself based on the technical requirements of the society. Each of these functions are granted as a fief to an individual or group. Leadership of these fiefs determines the head of the government.
