Hybrasil is a Tri-Tachyon system with minor Independent and pirate presence.

Hybrasil, White Star[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil

The beginning of the end for most stars, the white dwarf was once a red giant not massive enough to fuse carbon. Extremely dense and slowly radiating away its heat as it no longer undergoes fusion reactions, its volume is supported against gravitational collapse only by electron degeneracy pressure.

Culann (Hybrasil I), Barren World[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil I: Culann

The oldest of the famous mines of Culann were converted (suspiciously) shortly after the Collapse into a major Tri-Tachyon military base which projects power throughout the inner Hybrasil system and into the neighbouring systems. The deepest arsenals are said to contain fabulous weapons based on arcane technology revealed by incomprehensible AI-epiphany, though after two wars a Hegemony inspector has yet to set foot inside to confirm these rumors.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Population05.png
Population: Culann is home to hundreds of thousands of people.
Rareore sparse.png
Sparse Rare Ore Deposits: A few sparse transplutonic ore deposits exist here, but they are more of academic than industrial interest for their extraction is barely economical.
-1 transplutonic ore production (Mining).
Ore rich.png
Rich Ore Deposits: Rich mineral deposits form a thick lattice within the crust of Culann but require an ambitious industrialist to exploit them for fabulous profit.
+2 ore production (Mining).
Atmosphere none.png
No Atmosphere: No appreciable atmosphere exists on Culann. Its surface is exposed to the hard weathering of space, a steady drizzle of radiation and micrometeorites.
+50% hazard rating.
Hot extreme.png
Extreme Heat: Extreme heat necessitates specialized equipment and protocol to safely operate on Culann, seriously complicating logistics, life support, and long-term stability of infrastructure.

  • Hazard Rating: 200%
  • Tri-Tachyon Market
    • Population & Infrastructure: The basic infrastructure required to support a given population, from rickety orbital hab-modules to megacities and everything between.
      Culann is home to hundreds of thousands of people.
    • Spaceport: Facilities for loading and unloading cargo and performing basic starship repairs. A colony without a spaceport is virtually inaccessible to interstellar trade.
    • Refining: Smelting plants here convert ores and transplutonic ores into metals and transplutonics, respectively. Teleoperated robotics are used to handle the most dangerous tasks, usually.
    • Orbital Works: Centralized manufacturing infrastructure for production of heavy industrial equipment, supplies, and weapons. Also capable of producing barely-spaceworthy starships; a nanoforge can be installed to improve production quality. Upgraded with an orbital component that further facilitates ship construction, resulting in fewer manufacturing defects.
      • Corrupted nanoforge. Increases ship and weapon production quality by 20%. Increases production by 1 unit.
    • Battlestation - High Tech: A space station, augmented with a heavy bastion and point-defense citadels. Must be reduced before invasions or bombardment can be attempted.
    • Heavy Batteries: Armoured subsurface batteries supplement a dispersed network of small, hidden weapon installations. Ground-based batteries are capable of truly awesome firepower, though it only manifests by making ground operations more difficult, as no starship captain would be foolish enough to get within their firing envelopes.
    • Military Base: These facilities enable force projection between star systems. Any such military undertaking is a massive logistical operation requiring coordination of dozens, perhaps hundreds of star ships and thousands of officers, crew, and soldiers.

Culann Starforge[edit | edit source]

Culann Starforge

Culann Starforge was founded as a major center of zero-G refining and metallurgy several hundred years ago by an enterprise whose strength lay in a portfolio of ingenious energy conversion and storage technologies which enabled efficient harnessing of Hybrasil's nearby primary. This firm, its property, and Culann itself were rapidly acquired by the Tri-Tachyon Corporation which has traditionally dominated the energy conversion, generation, and projection industries.

Elada (Hybrasil II), Gas Giant[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil II: Elada

Primarily composed of hydrogen and helium gasses. The temperature and pressure at the core are extreme, but not enough to sustain deuterium fusion that would turn the planet into a brown dwarf star.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Volatiles diffuse.png
Diffuse Volatiles: Diffuse volatiles can be found here, and may be sufficient for industrial extraction.
No bonuses or penalties to volatiles production (Mining).

Eochu Bres (Hybrasil II-A), Tundra World[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil II-A: Eochu Bres

Terraformed late in the colonization of the Sector, Eochu Bres is a world of peaks and fjords torn by violent, rapidly changing weather. It is still colder than Terran-optimal in spite of an orbital mirror array completed shortly before the Collapse.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Population06.png
Population: The population of Eochu Bres is in the millions.
Free port.png
Free Port: The local port authority imposes almost no regulation on what cargo is traded. Immigration controls are likewise relaxed, resulting in a greater in-flow of people, albeit sometimes of a more questionable character. This may cause other factions to view this colony with distrust.
Farmland poor.png
Poor Farmland: Plant life grows only stunted and wearily here. It would require farmers with talent equal to their desperation to make these lands bear fruit.
-1 food production (Farming).
Organics trace.png
Trace Organics: Eochu Bres is nearly barren of organics reserves, though some extraction is possible.
-1 organics production (Mining).

    • Population & Infrastructure: The basic infrastructure required to support a given population, from rickety orbital hab-modules to megacities and everything between.
      The population of Eochu Bres is in the millions.
    • Megaport: A vast starport where the stars can touch the dirt. Regimented lander gantries and armoured fuel tanks are laced together by access-roads and short-haul cargo trams feeding a sprawl of warehouse districts and logistics terminals, all making the colony vastly more accessible.
    • Farming: Agriculture is a trade and technology as old as civilization itself; for thousands of cycles Humanity has harnessed the power of natural, modified, and artificial biological machines for sustenance. So it has always been, so it shall be so long as humans are human.
    • Light Industry: Produces domestic and luxury goods. One of the few industries relatively unaffected by the Collapse due to its low-tech nature.
    • Star Fortress - High Tech: An up-armored battlestation, featuring Gargoyle-class defense drones and long-range targeted mine teleporters. Must be reduced before invasions or bombardment can be attempted.
    • Ground Defenses: A dispersed, semi-autonomous network of small, hidden weapon installations which makes the prospect of a direct ground assault and even simple raids extremely costly to the attacker. Only overwhelming orbital bombardment or massively disproportionate active screening can suppress these defenses.
    • Patrol HQ: The requisite hangars, maintenance bays, command/control center, barracks, and logistics operations required to project force throughout a star system. Once established, militarized patrols will hunt pirates and protect friendly convoys.

Ogma (Hybrasil II-B), Rocky Metallic World[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil II-B: Ogma

A rocky-metallic husk-world, its shattered landscape is a record of a violent history. Kilometers-deep chasms rive the surface and craters pit lava-fields beneath inert volcanoes that dwarf any of those on Old Earth. Planets like this are valued for mining operations. There is no significant ecology and only trace atmosphere.

Elada Relay[edit | edit source]

Elada Relay

A Domain-era technology used primarily on the frontier, this is a hyperwave communications array which transmits and receives data between star systems at faster-than-light speeds. The rapidly pulsing hyperwaves suitable for FTL data transmission have been shown to damage DNA so these relays are always stationed away from habitats.

Crom Cruach (Hybrasil III), Barren-Bombarded World[edit | edit source]

Hybrasil III: Crom Cruach

This world is barren and unremarkable but for prevalence of otherwise unusual sulphur compounds of little economic value. During the colonization of the Hybrasil system mining combines established extensive works to extract ore for the hungry furnaces of Culann. The Collapse however saw Crom Cruach's civil administration implode in the battles, both political and literal, to exert influence over this strategic point near the best jump-point to the inner system.
