U'ia Star System

U'ia is a star system discovered by a Neshaten probe, it resides on the farthest eastern border of Neshaten territory. It was discovered in EE 001, but attempts to probe the system for information have been meet with little success. However, Neshaten scientists do find the star system of immense interest, not because of its two companion stars - since those are commonplace in their sector of space, but due to the last planet in the system which matches a known planet in their archives becoming to the Neshaten federation.

System Data

A list of system data.

Main Sequence

This is the main sequence star for the U'ia system. The star is emits solar flares at a rate of twenty every few days.

Type M2 V Red Dwarf
Radius 2.80 x 105 km (0.40 x sol)
Mass 6.09 x 1029 kg (0.31 x sol)
Temperature 3100 K
Luminosity 1.68 x 1025 W (0.04 x sol)

Close Companion

The close companion to the main sequence, this particular star is coolar than its main sequence but is just as active.

Type M8 V Red Dwarf
Distance 1.11 x 107 km (0.07 AU)
Radius 2.74 x 105 km (0.39 x sol)
Mass 5.67 x 1029 kg (0.29 x sol)
Temperature 2200 K
Luminosity 1.70 x 1025 W (0.04 x sol)

U'ia I

U'ia I is the first planet in the system, its also the most unfortunate as well, as the planet is covered in thick fields of lava as a result of its parent stars constant solar flare activity.

Type Barren Planet
Orbital Radius 3.64 x 107 km (0.24 AU)
Period 1.37 x 103 hours (0.16 earth years)

U'ia II

U'ia II, the second planet in the system, is a rocky planet with several underground caverns. The planets surface is covered in toxic and acidic clouds.

Type Rock Planet
Orbital Radius 5.88 x 107 km (0.39 AU)
Period 2.80 x 103 hours (0.32 earth years)
Gravity 12.23 m/s2 (1.25 x earth)

U'ia III

U'ia III is another rocket planet in the system, unlike U'ia II however; its surfaces are much more forgiving.

Type Rock Planet
Orbital Radius 9.59 x 107 km (0.64 AU)
Period 5.84 x 103 hours (0.67 earth years)
Gravity 1.86 m/s2 (0.19 x earth)
Special Advanced alien artifact

U'ia IV

U'ia IV isn't a planet, but rather a very large, dense asteroid belt that separates U'ia III and V. The density of the field, along with several large thunks of asteriods, make it apperant that the system used to have many more planets.

Type Asteroid Belt
Orbital Radius 1.73 x 108 km (1.16 AU)
Period 1.41 x 104 hours (1.62 earth years)

U'ia V

U'ia V is a very cold planet, thanks in large part to the asteriod field that blocks out the majority of the sun. Its surface is covered in ice, and its temperatures routinely drop down to negative four hundred degree during the day.

Type Ice Planet
Orbital Radius 3.34 x 108 km (2.23 AU)
Period 3.80 x 104 hours (4.34 earth years)
Gravity 9.84 m/s2 (1.01 x earth)
Special Large moon

U'ia VI

U'ia VI is another ice planet, but one that is much colder, with temperatures going down to almost negative one thousand degrees, making its surface hazardous even for machinery. There are steam vents on the surface that eject large chunks of ice, although presently it is unknown what generates the steam.

Type Ice Planet
Orbital Radius 6.47 x 108 km (4.32 AU)
Period 1.02 x 105 hours (11.70 earth years)
Gravity 7.79 m/s2 (0.80 x earth)

U'ia VII

U'ia VII is a gas planet. Not much is known about it.

Type Neptunian Planet
Orbital Radius 1.21 x 109 km (8.12 AU)
Period 2.63 x 105 hours (30.07 earth years)
Gravity 12.49 m/s2 (1.28 x earth)

U'ia VIII

U'ia VIII is the second gas giant within the system, cursory scans of the planet show a structure in very low orbit.

Type Neptunian Planet
Orbital Radius 2.64 x 109 km (17.68 AU)
Period 8.45 x 105 hours (96.66 earth years)
Gravity 14.08 m/s2 (1.44 x earth)
Special 4 large moons, low orbit derelict(?) structure

U'ia IX

The third ice planet of the system, and one that actually has a semi-livable atmosphere, with an active electrical storm that ravages the surface.

Type Ice Planet
Orbital Radius 4.93 x 109 km (32.95 AU)
Period 2.15 x 106 hours (246.02 earth years)
Gravity 3.19 m/s2 (0.33 x earth)
Special Electromagnetic storms

U'ia X

U'ia X is a very strange, and out of place, planet for the U'ia system; this is because the planet doesn't orbit in the same manner as other planets in the system but rather if orbits off center; meaning in one year it'll be closer to the parent star and in others it'll be further away, this brings it close to other planets in the system and large craters on the surface tell the story that the planet has been through the asteroid belt at list several times. Its surface is highly radioactive, and is covered in radioactive lakes, streams, and rivers. There are very large, expansive, underground caverns.

Some parts of the surface show evidence of a civilization once living there.

Type Barren Planet
Orbital Radius 9.11 x 109 km (60.91 AU)
Period 5.40 x 106 hours (618.23 earth years)
Physics Small iron/silicate
Gravity 4.10 m/s2 (0.42 x earth)
Hydrosphere 5 % water, 3 % ice
Atmosphere Thin reducing
Biosphere Radioactive
Special Planetary rings
