Tarck

 

Tarck is a planetary system orbiting an orange k-class star.  The system has long been an important trade junction sitting in an area called the Golden Triangle, named that because of its location in between three regions.

A major space station orbits the primary planet with numerous charging stations placed throughout the system.  The systems primary purpose is to help facilitate trade between the regions.

Despite its prime location, continuous political woes have held back the system from reaching its true potential.  The system and its stations are a popular place for smugglers and criminals, the local government has long supported them.  With the government's refusal to address the crime element, private security forces were hired by local companies to help protect their assets.  This has often resulted in violent clashes.

The system is often skipped by traders who instead travel through more stable systems in the Golden Triangle, like Freeworld and Lynk.

Tarck C

Tarck B
Tarck B is a cold desert world orbiting on the outer section of the habitable zone.  The planet is covered in only about 10-15% (depending on time of year) liquid water, mostly in lakes scattered along the equatorial region.  The atmosphere does contain some oxygen, though humans not acclimated to the environment need supplemental oxygen to survive.  Rocky desert plains cover most of the surface, the plains are separated by numerous volcanic mountain ranges.
