Vertigo is a low-population vacuum world, with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • This a "forbidden" world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Megrez Subsector of Canopus Sector.

  • The world has no shipyard and no facilities to for repair.
  • This facility has no refueling infrastructure and can provide no fuel. Visiting craft must seek their own fuel supplies.

World Population (P)[edit]

  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without significant outside assistance.
  • This may represent a transient population such as the crew of a few starships, the final survivors of a dying colony, an advance team setting up to receive colonists, or a small outpost where establishing a colony is not the primary objective.

  • Other, population 5%

  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has no law in practice. It is an Anarchy. On many worlds, this by itself justifies an Amber Zone advisory.

  • There may be formal legal codes, just not enforced. Or there may be none.
  • While there are likely informal understandings if there is no significant population, the lack of a written legal code leads to misunderstandings on the little (and sometimes large) details if there is significant population.
  • Even on worlds like this, open use of nuclear weapons and similarly destructive implements invite retaliation from those harmed by collateral damage.
