Orret is a poor, non-agricultural and nonindustrial desert world with no free-standing water.

  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • This world has few prospects for economic expansion and life is very bleak and trying here.
  • It requires 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.
  • This dangerous world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors.
  • It is a part of the Hell Worlds in the Orret Subsector of Far Home Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Intens-Orret System[edit]

The primary is Intens, an intensely hot white bright giant star. It has a luminosity of 750 Sols, a mass of 9.8 Sols, and a diameter of 20.6 million km. (II) a sparse rocky planetoid belt, (III) a vacuum inner world, (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (V) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (VI) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VII) a vacuum worldlet, and (VIII) Orret, designated the mainworld, form the inner system – orbital position (I) is empty. Few of the worlds retain satellites.

Igusu Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Igusu, an ordinary yellow main sequence star that lies approximately 3,650 AU from Intens. It has a luminosity of 0.52 Sols, a mass of 0.871 Sols, and a diameter of 1.264 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, and (II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world. (III) a standard atmosphere hospitable world orbits within the habitable zone. (IV) a thin atmosphere hospitable world forms the inner part of the outer system. Orbital positons (V) to (IX) are unavailable due to the presence of the far companion star. (X) a large gas giant, and (XI) a ringed small gas giant form the outer part of the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Blum Subsystem[edit]

The far companion is Blum, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Igusu at 6.1 AU (orbital position (VII), 913 million km) and has an orbital period of 16 years 53 days. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (II) a small ice giant, and (III) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. The gas giant retains satellites.

Mainworld data[edit]

(VIII) Orret[edit]

(VIII) Orret is designated the mainworld. It orbits Intens at a mean distance of 11.2 AU (1.67 billion km), within the H– region of the inner system. It has an orbital period of 11 years 355 days and a rotation period of 33.6 hours. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Orret has a diameter of 3,420 km, a density of 7.87 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.39 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.23 bar and a composition of 89% nitrogen (N2), 10% abiotic oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne), ozone (O3) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen, the high temperatures, and the extremely low humidity levels. The world has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: 78°C. The climate is rated as Very Hot and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is sluggish and weak weather systems driven by the star crawl across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 37 million km².

  • The oxygen in the atmosphere is abiotic in origin, produced by the photocatalytic reaction between the extremely high levels of UV energy radiating from the star and titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is found in surface minerals such as ilmenite.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Intens-Orret System[edit]

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

Igusu Subsystem[edit]

The warm marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II) (within the H– region of the inner system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

The temperate hospitable world lying in orbital position (III) (within the habitable zone) has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the processes of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has extensive native life, consisting of minute multicellular organisms that can be found in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

Blum Subsystem[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Orret 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]

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

World government[edit]

Orret has a Captive Government or Colony. The world is ruled by an external government, there is no self-rule. A colony or conquered area. The local government is an oligarchy appointed by, and answerable only to, the external government.

Any travel within the system is considered an EXTREME RISK and a violation of any existing ship insurance policies. Any unauthorised surface landings on any body within the system are prohibited.
