The Naraka Star System is controlled by the Hegemony.

Naraka, Orange Star Edit

Star orange

Naraka

Slightly cooler and smaller than Old Earth's sun, this class K star most resembles Alpha Centauri B. It is particularly stable, burning on the lower end of the main sequence for tens of billions of years and thus considered a likely host to life-bearing and terraformable planets.

The Yamuna (Stellar Ring I) Edit

  • Orbits Naraka between the nav buoy and Yama

Naraka Jump Point Edit

  • Orbits Naraka as Yama's L5 trojan

Yama (Naraka I), Arid World Edit

Arid

Naraka I: Yama

Yama scored only marginal viability on the Eridani-Utopia Corporation survey charts, but the nearby fuel facility on Nachiketa prompted terraforming and colonization. It remains a sub-par world, in lingering decline after the devastation of the First AI War.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Population06
Population: The population of Yama is in the millions.
Farmland poor
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).
Habitable
Habitable: Human beings can survive unprotected exposure to the surface conditions of Yama.
-25% hazard rating.
  • Hazard Rating: 75%
  • Hegemony Market
    • Population & Infrastructure: The basic infrastructure required to support a given population, from rickety orbital hab-modules to megacities and everything between. The population of Yama is in the millions.
    • Spaceport: Facilities for loading and unloading cargo and performing basic starship repairs. A colony without a spaceport is virtually inaccessible to interstellar trade.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Light Industry: Produces domestic and luxury goods. One of the few industries relatively unaffected by the Collapse due to its low-tech nature.
    • Orbital Station - Low Tech: A low-tech space station, featuring heavy armor and medium firepower. 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.

Yami (Naraka I-A), Barren-Bombarded World Edit

Barren01-0

Naraka I-A: Yami

A lifeless rocky world, the battered surface tells an aeons-long story of intermittent meteor bombardment. What atmosphere there is clings to the scarred crust in near-vacuum. There is no significant magnetic field or tectonic activity. Deep regolith prevails, crossed by lava channels and spotted by ancient lava seas formed by especially large impacts.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Rareore moderate
Moderate Rare Ore Deposits: Yami contains modest transplutonic deposits that, with sustained industry and investment, could be profitably tapped.
No bonuses or penalties to ore production (Mining).
Ore sparse
Sparse Ore Deposits: A few sparse ore deposits exist here, but they are more of an academic than industrial interest for their extraction is barely economical.
-1 ore production (Mining).
Atmosphere none
No Atmosphere: No appreciable atmosphere exists on Yami. Its surface is exposed to the hard weathering of space, a steady drizzle of radiation and micrometeorites.
+50% hazard rating.
Hot
Hot: The high temperature conditions of Yami necessitates specialized equipment to perform normal operations, complicating life support and infrastructure.
+25% hazard rating.
  • Hazard Rating: 175%

Naraka Relay Edit

Com relay

Naraka 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.

Nachiketa (Naraka I-L4), Barren World Edit

Barren02

Naraka I-L4: Nachiketa

This world was selected by Domain bureaucrats as a site for one of the Sector's AM fuel production facilities due to having no outstanding value apart from existing on a convenient axis of expansion into further frontiers. Industry and port facilities followed the fuel facility's boost to starship traffic, growing like barnacles from the massive armoured and half-buried fuel plant. A major confrontation during the First AI War saw these surrounding port facilities devastated due to a tactical purge of AM reserves; the Hegemony secured victory, but crippled the industry and infrastructure of Nachiketa.

–In-Game Description

  • Planetary Conditions
Population05
Population: Nachiketa is home to hundreds of thousands of people.

Sparse Ore Deposits: A few sparse ore deposits exist here, but they are more of an academic than industrial interest for their extraction is barely economical.
-1 ore production (Mining).
Atmosphere none
No Atmosphere: No appreciable atmosphere exists on Nachiketa. Its surface is exposed to the hard weathering of space, a steady drizzle of radiation and micrometeorites.

    • Population & Infrastructure: The basic infrastructure required to support a given population, from rickety orbital hab-modules to megacities and everything between. Nachiketa 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.
    • Fuel Production: This facility produces starship fuel, the life-blood of interstellar civilization. Lacking Domain-tech components, fuel production is a laborious and slow process.
      • Synchrotron core. Increases fuel production by 3 units.
    • Battlestation - Midline:
    • 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.

Chitagupta (Naraka II), Barren World Edit

Naraka II: Chitagupta

Radiation from the nearby star ravages the surface of this world due to the lack of an atmospheric ozone layer. No significant geological activity. No indigenous life forms.
