Palique is an industrial icy world with a trace atmosphere and a significant quantity of water frozen on the surface. The system has a population over one billion. The governance of this world is from Fornice (Spinward Marches 3025). This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Mora Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Palique, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdoms of a count and a minor duke. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. The world's name is also spelled Pallique in some sources.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

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. [2]
