Obelia System


Holopedia Galactica entry:

Obelia System is the outermost major star system on the Vorharopulos Pass, and most likely of all settled areas in Pelagia Province to be affected by objects careening out of the nearby nebula. Additional scans are recommended before and during hyperspace travel in the vicinity of this star system.
The system primary is Cesi, a K2 V Orange Main Sequence star.
The innermost orbiting objects are the components of the Bourdillon Belt. Objects within this belt dampen a significant amount of the radiation thrown off during a solar flare, making early terraforming work on the planets within this system much easier than even a typical K-type star offers.
Fabron and its moon, Faucher, are iron-core bodies with a silicate crust. Faucher is almost precisely one seventh the total mass of Fabron. This fact inspires numerous heavily-researched, formally published theories of "ancient system-builders" in academic circles every four standard years. Some say that the outlandish thesis presentations began as a means for cosmology and geophysics doctoral students at Reena University, Shey Tapani University, and the Mrlsst Trade and Science Academy to compete for the best prank perpetrated on Corellia University archaeology majors. Eventually the competition became more about the most outlandish theories with the greatest "sincere science" content to support them.
The third orbital range outward from Cesi is where the red-tinged ringed gas giant Royer is located. Royer's rotational axis points more than forty-five degrees off the orbital plane. The objects in "Royer's Wheel", the planet's ring, get access to direct sunlight at most times.
Obelia is the largest natural body orbiting Royer. Obelia was terraformed during the latter Colonial Era as an agricultural support for the mining operations in on Fabron and Cindra. In the current era it serves primarily as a trade center for several smaller communities and collectives, within and close to the Obelia System.
Royer is also orbited by thirteen large moons of sizes smaller than Obelia -- including Abdère and Yvelin, two privately-owned County Districts of House Vorpelagia member families, terraformed but kept functional with some artiicial environmental support -- and twenty-one smaller moons.
Lommite mining continues on Cindra, the atmosphereless silicate planet occupying the fourth orbit of Cesi. Repeated tests have determined that Cindra's natural moon Chlore has no ore worth mining. In fact, Chlore has no chemical resemblance to any other body in this system; it may be a captured planetoid.
Darri and Digne are the two ice planets in the outermost orbits of Obelia System. Neither has a natural moon, but both are orbited by space platforms of varying purposes.
