More information

Homeworld of the Separa'Shan. In YE 34, the Star Army of Yamatai constructed a Frontier Starport. It is the only permanent Star Army presence in the Essia System. The largest cargo shipping provider is Trinary Star Shipping, which has storefronts in all of the planet's major cities.


  • Type:
  • Orbital Radius: 4.2 AU
  • Period: 6.5 year(s)
  • Gravity: 2.3 g
  • Planetary Population: 15 million as of the end of YE 39
  • Facilities: 1 Small Spaceport
More information

Colonized by the Separa'Shan in YE 36. Its population is on average much younger than on Essia.

Other Information

There are also several mining platforms around the Essia system. The Essia system has numerous asteroid belts some of which contain large deposits of rare raw materials. However, there are no raw materials that are unique to the Essia system. The Essia system is relatively young, only a few million years old. Astrophysicists say the natural formation and evolution on these timescales is impossible. Communications in the system are provided by a network of Emrys Satellites placed in YE 36.
