Hyoutan is an Ice Giant in the Gensou System, it is part of the Yamatai Star Empire.

About Hyoutan

The Ice Giant Hyoutan and the moons that make up it's planetary system were discovered by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet of the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 29. The moons in this system are icy and rocky and for the most part, are uninhabitable without the protection of a dome. Like most worlds in the region, Hyoutan spent a short amount of time as part of the United Outer Colonies from YE 30 to YE 33 and then the Lorath Matriarchy from YE 33 until YE 39. Both factions attempted large scale terraforming projects on the moons of Hyoutan, however, it was determined that the average temperature of these icy worlds and the layout of the solar system made terraforming unfeasible. In YE 42, when the system was reviewed by the First Expeditionary Fleet and the Yugumo Corporation those failed terraforming projects were halted and plans for future dome colonies were put into place.

The Moons of Hyoutan

The seventy-three moons of Hyoutan are diverse in size, they are geologically active terrestrial bodies covered in water or methane ice. For the most part, they have not been mapped or fully explored. The largest of which is called Hyousetsu which was the focus on the terraforming projects in the system that have since been shut down.

Places to Explore or Salvage

Hyoutan and its moons have some interesting locations.

Abandoned Lorath Terraforming Facilities

The Lorath Matriarchy had many terraforming facilities on the moons of Hyousetsu, all of which were abandoned in YE 39. These facilities are in unknown condition and have not been explored or salvaged as of YE 42.

Orbital Assets

The Star Army of Yamatai established a "Guriddo" Defense System as part of the Gensou System Defense Plan laid out by Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko in YE 42. The system includes:
