Sharrip supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lunion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Sharrip, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Sharrip is a member of the Spinward Main.

Sharrip has a thin oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere tainted by sulfur compounds, and a chilly climate. Sharrip is a planet with very modest mineral wealth and a complete lack of indigenous life. The atmosphere originally consisted mostly of carbon dioxide and due to the greenhouse effect the temperatures were very high.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Sharrip population consists of the minimal support staff for the starport.[2]

In 149 the planet is the subject of a terraforming project aimed at turning the atmosphere into a breathable one by seeding the planet with specially tailored plankton-like vegetation.

By 1047 the project was far enough ahead that an unprotected human can breathe the air - it just isn't very pleasant - and the project advanced to the next stage, that of establishing plant life on land.
