Shugosha V was discovered and explored by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 29. This particular gas giant is a fairly typical version of its kind, except it has a retrograde orbit. It has thirteen massive rings. As of YE 42 exploration is ongoing.

The planet itself is suitable for gas extraction, but most of the interesting places on the planet are actually on its moons.
Shugosha V has thirty-two known moons. Almost all of them are irregular, tiny, ferrous asteroids. It has two regular, massive moons:
Tidal forces have given this Yamatai (Planet)-sized moon very active tectonics. The frigid cold has made thick sheets of water ice covering the surface, disturbed regularly here and there by Cryovolcanoes.
A massive, rocky sphere, Shugosha Vb is almost twice the diameter of Yamatai (Planet). It is almost airless, and its barren, pockmarked crust is composed mostly of silicates and ferrous metals.
Shugosha V has no communications network.
