Planetary Description


Located near the center of the Tempest Sector. The planet has a planet-wide ammonia ocean with a single continent in the northern hemisphere. The ammonia oceans are deep brown, due to dissolved metals, while the vegetation is colored black, rather than the normal green, to accommodate the lower light levels of the red dwarf sun and the different chemical photosynthesis based on ammonia.

K'Thon Vessel

An abandoned K'Thon ship sits in an ancient volcanic caldera on the southern part of the landmass.

The ship's drive and many other systems are ruined and it has been modified to run on geothermal power drawn from the heart of the volcano. The shields are operable, though not at full power, while weapons are offline for a lack of power. Life support systems are designed for the silicon-based K'Thon race, though they can be modified for other lifeforms as well.

Abandoned KThon Ship



The huge ship has a pressurized hanger deck in the large circular end that can accommodate ships up to nearly 500 meters in length.
