Karak (VFE179): red dwarf star with 3 planets


Solar system 'Karak (VFE179)' comprises the star 'Karak' and the retinue of celestial objects gravitationally bound to it: 3 planets and their 226 moons, as well as asteroids, meteoroids, planetoids, comets, and interplanetary dust.

The principal component of this star system is the star 'Karak', a red dwarf class star that contains about 98.35% of the system's known mass and dominates it gravitationally. Karak is located more than 4258 lightyears from the center of the galaxy.

TakTarak, the first 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 297K (24C) and it's atmosphere contains 44% of oxygen. One year on TakTarak lasts 116 days, one day lasts 6 hours. It's diameter is 17988 km, 1.4 times the diameter of the Earth.

Karak is a small red dwarf near the outskirts of the galaxy. It has three planets: two gas giants in distant orbits and a rocky planet closer in. The rocky planet, TakTarak, is the home to an intelligent crustacean-like species known as the Ttok.
Karak is prone to periods of high flare and sunspot activity.
The system is rather poor in natural resources, much to the dismay of the Ttok species who look enviously at the rich systems around nearby stars.

This solar system comprises 3 planets

TakTarak is a large terrestrial planet (8994 km radius) which orbits its star in 116 Earth days, one day on TakTarak lasts 6 Earth hours. Its average temperature is 297 K (24 C), its atmosphere mainly consists of nitrogen, oxygen and it has 7 moons.

TakTarak is a large rocky planet with high gravity and a warm, breathable atmosphere. It has two planet-sized moons and five smaller, asteroidal, satellites. Much of the surface is covered by a deep, brackish ocean and there are a few small, volcanic conti ...

Chitic is a large gas giant (50398 km radius) which orbits its star in 14564 Earth days, one day on Chitic lasts 3 Earth hours. Its average temperature is 1972 K (1699 C), its atmosphere mainly consists of hydrogen and it has 106 moons.

Chitic is the smaller of the system's two gas giants. It is rather bland in appearance; a deep purple color and featureless atmosphere. There is a weak ring of tiny dust particles and an extensive moon system consisting mostly of captured asteroids. The on ...
