The Frozen Dwarf Planet

Little more than a giant snowball, the Ice Dwarf Shugosha IV is used as a water source, automatic mining systems running to obtain the liquid of life. Owing to the two gas giants nearby, the dwarf planet has no moons. It has only the most tenuous atmosphere, consisting primarily of water vapor brought up by daytime warming.

Places to Salvage and Explore

Automated Water Mining facilities abound throughout the tiny dwarf planet's crust of freshwater ice. They have no permanent, or even temporary staff. Instead, they are only visited when needed, typically if a problem is reported by the automated sensors. Nonetheless, each facility has provisions for workers to stay for the duration.

Orbital Assets

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

The planet also has an orbiting network of Emrys Satellites for communications that were deployed by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 36.
