Solar system 'Markab (PEC092)' comprises the star 'Markab' and the retinue of celestial objects gravitationally bound to it: 5 planets and their 132 moons, as well as asteroids, meteoroids, planetoids, comets, and interplanetary dust.

The principal component of this star system is the star 'Markab', a red dwarf class star that contains about 99.57% of the system's known mass and dominates it gravitationally. Markab is located more than 885 lightyears from the center of the galaxy.

Markab II, the second planet in this system, features organic life forms with an average intelligence that have developed a high tech civilisation capable of utilizing hyperspace technology to explore their own solar system as well as distant star systems. Its average temperature is 289K (16C) and it's atmosphere contains 16% of oxygen. One year on Markab II lasts 474 days, one day lasts 7 hours. It's diameter is 22236 km, 1.7 times the diameter of the Earth.
