Koukotsu System

The Koukotsu star System is located in the Yugumo Cluster and is a member world of the Yamatai Star Empire. Its name means “ecstasy” in Yamataigo (邪馬台語).

Flag of Koukotsu

The Yamatai Star Empire placed global communications networks of Emrys Satellites into orbit of all of the system's terrestrial worlds in YE 36.

It contributes a representative, Senator Jushimoto Koji, to the Senate of Yamatai.

Koukotsu is part of the PAINT mass transportation system and has a terminal operated by Peacekeeper Heavy Industries, offering flights to Jiyuu Fleet Depot, Jiyuu III every 3 hours. Civilian cargo shipping is primarily provided by Trinary Star Shipping, which has storefronts in all of the major cities in the Koukotsu system.

Planets

Koukotsu I

  • Type: Terrestrial Planet
  • Colonies: None
  • Other uses: Resource Extraction.

Koukotsu I is a rocky near-to-star planet with a metallic core primary comprised of iron and silicates. It has a thin unstable atmosphere composed primarily of helium, hydrogen, oxygen and potassium which is greatly effected by solar wind. Temperatures range to nearly 800K.

The Yamatai Star Empire has two automated helium-3 extraction facilities on the surface, and two subterranean automated iron ore mines.

Koukotsu II

Type: Terrestrial World
Orbital Radius: 2.89 x 107 km (0.19 AU)
Period: 9.11 x 102 hours (0.10 earth years)
Physics: Small iron/silicate
Hydrosphere: 52 % water, 6 % ice
Atmosphere: Breathable
Special: 9 Planetary rings
Colonies: Paradise City, Koukotsu Resort Complex, Mazu Beach, Kiyoko Beach
Population: 5,679,908

A beautiful ringed terrestrial planet with a complex biosphere. A resort planet; Koukotsu is adored for its tropical climate, crystal seas and white sand beaches. Vast rainforests cover the planets many islands.

In YE 34, Origin Industries established an Origin-Mart and office complex on the Planet Koukotsu II.

Koukotsu III

Type: Terrestrial World
Orbital Radius: 4.12 x 107 km (0.28 AU)
Period: 1.56 x 103 hours (0.18 earth years)
Physics: Small iron/silicate
Hydrosphere: 33 % water, 20 % ice
Atmosphere: Breathable
Special: Thin planetary wings
Colonies: Point Hoshi, Point Horizon, Point Crystal
Population: 1,000,566

A planet of primarily dense coniferous forestation in areas not covered by the heavy glaciation that covers nearly 77% of the surface. It has a breathable atmosphere, moderately available resources and for the most part is locked in an ice age likely caused by a lengthy period of vulcanization which projected heavy amounts of ash into the atmosphere.

In YE 34, Origin Industries established a large testing and training complex on Koukotsu III for the training of test pilots and OriSec personnel, as well as the testing of new prototypes and other equipment.

In YE 36, a Bravemart opened in the planet's civilian starport.

Koukotsu IV

Type: Gas Giant
Orbital Radius: 5.82 x 107 km (0.39 AU)
Period: 2.61 x 103 hours (0.30 earth years)
Gravity: 13.23 m/s2 (1.35 x earth)
Special: 55 small moons, 4 large moons

Koukotsu V

Type: Gas Giant
Orbital Radius: 2.97 x 108 km (1.99 AU)
Period: 3.01 x 104 hours (3.44 earth years)
Gravity: 34.42 m/s2 (3.52 x earth)
Special: Planetary rings, 11 large moons
