Astrography & Planetology
Palique is a member of the Palique Cluster.
Palique is an ice-capped planet with only a trace oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere; its eccentric orbit results in a highly variable climate.
The Palique system contains two extremely rich asteroid belts which provided the primary draw for settlement and development. Palique itself is a captured planet; its eccentric orbit is inclined almost perpendicularly to the system's ecliptic plane. Palique suffers a series of planetary impacts twice each local year as the planet passes through one of the planetoid belts. As a result of the navigation hazards the IISS has registered the world as an Amber Zone.
