Zeta 2 is a barren hellworld, which would challenge the survival of nearly any sophont in Charted Space if it weren't already barren.

  • As a barren world, it has no overt population, government, or law level.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world could probably be populated by very determined colonists if any had an inclination to do so... This 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. The world has been set aside to preserve indigenous life forms, to delay resource development, or for other reasons. It is a unclaimed Non-Aligned world in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This is the homeworld to Viji, a Minor Race.

Everyone is forbidden to travel here. The world has been set aside to preserve indigenous life forms, to delay resource development, or for other reasons. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This world is an Interface world, with a quarantine inspection facility for all ships. This is the homeworld to Viji, a Minor Race.

System Importance (Ix)[edit]

No information yet available.

Mainworld Data[edit]

The planet is a barren hellworld designed as a reserve and classified as a Red Zone. Zeta 2 has a corrosive atmosphere composed mainly of fluorine compounds, with 60% of the planet's surface covered by hydroflouric-acid seas.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 8,800km and 10,400km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.6G and 0.8G. The horizon will appear about 4.4km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a Corrosive Atmosphere and possesses a concentrated gas mix or unusual temperature which requires the use of a Hostile Environment Suit or Vacc Suit. TL–9 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has no free-standing water or ice on the surface. Wilderness refueling isn't possible on this world. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are classified Desert World or a Hell World depending on their atmosphere.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Native Sophont: Viji[edit]

The Viji are allegedly small crystalline creatures somehow capable of surviving in Zeta 2's extremely harsh environment.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Zeta 2 is an Imperial Navy target range. The heavily cratered and pock marked planet is extremely radioactive. Six Navy 400 ton SMU-4C automated interdiction satellites have been place to warn off any intruders.[2]

The Railen Institute, a private research group, has established small orbital facility over Zeta 2 to study extreme-condition survival for vessels and probes.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

This world does not have a starport. The Class X Starport is an indication that no starport exists in the system. There are no facilities or services available, and no site marked for landing.

World Population (P)[edit]

This world has no population (...zero sophonts). It is devoid of a known sophont population.

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

This world has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan. The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.

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 are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate.

World Technology Level (TL)[edit]

This world possesses a Technology Level of TL–0.

  • These worlds often contain a Proto-Sophont species beginning to establish a nascent civilization and society.
  • This world is in its Alpha Period and has not yet been interfered with by a higher technology civilization.
  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Bodily communicative apparati, courier-runners, and smoke signals.
