Notes: This hot, rocky planet has a thin atmosphere of noble gases and a strong magnetic field. This results in spectacular auroral displays, hence the planet’s name. It is otherwise notable only for its mineral wealth, with small mining colonies operated by PGC and other interests.
Type: Airless rock
Orbital Radius: 65.47 million km (0.44 AU)
Local Year: 281 standard days (75.54 local days)
Local Day: 93 standard hours
Gravity: 2,000 km
Notes: This tiny ball of rock has nothing of interest and little mineral wealth. Its minimal gravity makes any mining efforts futile.
Orbital Radius: 99.7 million km (0.67 AU)
Local Year: 494 standard days (363.24 local days)
Local Day: 34 standard hours
Gravity: 64,000 km
Notes: This is small gas giant, with 5 large moons in orbit. Two of these moons (IIIa and III c) have enough gravity and minerals to support some mining, but neither has a breathable atmosphere nor habitable temperatures. Enclosed mines are found on both moons.
Notes: This is little more than an icy chunk of stellar debris.
Orbital Radius: 482.11 million km (3.24 AU)
Local Year: 405 standard days (142.6 local days)
Local Day: 71 standard hours
Gravity: 15,000 km
Notes: A thick atmosphere of ammonia and methane shrouds the rocky surface of this frigid world.
Orbital Radius: 758.9 million km (5.1 AU)
Local Year: 680 standard days (186.81 local days)
Local Day: 91 standard hours
Gravity: 23,000 km
Notes: Larger than its sister world Prenglar VII, this is a similar planet; cold, dark and toxic. It has two icy moons, which are otherwise unremarkable.
Type: Rocky desert, cold
Orbital Radius: 1075.41 million km (7.16 AU)
Local Year: 752 standard days (400 local days)
Local Day: 47 standard hours
Gravity: 14,000 km
Notes: Despite having a dense atmosphere, this world is too cold and dark to support life. There is some light mining and industry here, as well as a military training outpost. Three small moons orbit the planet.
One of the first systems discovered by humans in the Age of Exploration, Finding so many habitable worlds in one system, the early explorers quickly settled on the fifth planet, which they named Gran Quivera. Using this as a jumping off point, they explored further into the local group, encountering other species and finding new worlds to settle.
One of the earliest corporations to form on Gran Quivera was Pan-Galactic Corporation (PGC), originally created to aid in colonization and exploration. As human colonies grew and relations with other races stabilized, PGC expanded its mandate to include travel, mining, freight and more, eventually becoming the first Megacorp.
Outnumbered and out-gunned, the masterful Admiral Vincent Moragine used superior tactics to overcome the Sathar fleet. Sadly, Admiral Morgaine was mortally wounded in the conflict. The fourth planet in the system was named Morgaine's World in his honor.
The founding of the United Planetary Federation (UPF) took place on Gran Quivera after these events. Lengthy meetings were called and attended by members of all the major races. After much debate, a pact of mutual protection and trade, while still allowing self-governance of individual worlds and systems was established.
With its central location, it was agreed that Gran Quivera would be the center of this new governmental body and the Council of Worlds and the Office of the Prime Minister can both be found here as well as many other UPF governmental buildings.
After the war, many humans chose to colonize Morgaine's World. This large planet with its beautiful rings is an arid land with a harsh climate. These pioneers struggled long to survive and little assistance was available from Gran Quivera which was recovering from the war. When the Capellan Free Merchants (CFM) arrived, they were greeted by both worlds with great appreciation, much to the consternation of PGC.
When the Blue Plague arrived, there was great fear across the system. Both Gran Quivera and Morgaine's World banned all travel within the system, which hindered efforts to find a cure and led to resentment among other systems which persists to today.
In hindsight, if the authorities had taken some simple precautions, the cure eventually discovered in the MSO Center on Morgaine's World would have been much sooner and more lives could have been saved.
As hub of the UPF, the people of the Prenglar system are a diverse lot. Members of all known races can be found here, most working in various government positions or for PGC.
