Pacifica

The Pacifica system is a planetary system inside the Pacifica nebula in the southern portion of the starmap. It has been partially settled by the Exodus Fleet.

(Gridref 2501)

Star Data

What makes the Pacifica planetary system so interesting is its lack of a star. Instead of a star providing thermal energy to fuel life on planetary bodies, the fusion reactions of nearby young stars give off just the right amount of heat to facilitate life on its two terrestrial planets

The planets are trapped in an orbit around a point which does not exist, being pulled between a nearby young star cluster and a cluster of very dim, dying stars which are also nearby. The planets orbit around one of the Lagrange points between the two attractors, tidal forces causing them to rotate as normal planets would.

Planetary Data

There are 9 planets in this system. Below is their statistical information. Because they are not orbiting a star, their distance is given from the Lagrangian point which they orbit.

Only Hope and Prosperity are of any note, the rest are typical planets of their type.

Planetary data is unavailable to players until they explore the system.
