Daymar or Stanton 2b is a natural satellite of Crusader. It is named after one of the siblings from a tale called A Gift for Baba. The nearly circular orbit is said to represent 'his ease at getting lost in the story'. Darnell Ajay built the first permanent homestead on Daymar in 2906.

Atmospheric Composition

Daymar has a thick (1.5 Earths), non-breathable nitrogen-methane atmosphere with trace amounts of hydrogen and is toxic to humans without breathing equipment.

Chemical Formula Full Name Amount
N Nitrogen 94.4%
CH4 Methane 1.4%
H Hydrogen 0.2%

Locations

Javelin Wreck

Approximately 240 km from ArcCorp Mining Area 141. The nearest orbital marker is OM2.

Surface Outposts

ArcCorp Mining Area 141

A mining facility owned and operated by ArcCorp.

Bountiful Harvest Hydroponics

Bountiful Harvest Hydroponics is dedicated to growing the best nature has to offer. Crusader Industries commends Bountiful Harvest Hydroponics for their extraordinary response to those in need on Vega II. Following the horrific Vanduul attacks on 2945-10-05, Bountiful Harvest produced and donated more emergency food supplies for the Vega relief effort than any other outpost on Crusader's moons. This outpost's extraordinary sacrifice serves as a reminder that the UEE will always stand behind those who come face-to-face with the Vanduul threat.

Kudre Ore

An independent mining facility.

Shubin Mining Facility SCD-1

A mining facility owned and operated by Shubin Interstellar.

Dunlow Ridge Aid Shelter

This ridge was named for Crusader's former CEO August Dunlow. Many credit Dunlow's vision as instrumental into transforming Crusader Industries into the company it is today. With that in mind, Dunlow Ridge, with its expansive view of the Daymar landscape, was named in his honor.

Eager Flats Aid Shelter

This section of Daymar became known as Eager Flats after an eccentric artist who called it home. Norman Eager gained notoriety in the 2920s for constructing a series of art installations so massive they could be seen by ships flying above the flats. Deemed 'ephemeral art' by Eager, the pieces were not meant to be permanent. Instead, they were slowly degraded and buried by the moon's constantly swirling sands.

Tamdon Plains Aid Shelter

The Tamdon Plains were named in honor of Advocacy agent Crista Tamdon, who in 2912 was killed in the line of duty after being ambushed while crossing these plains in pursuit of a suspect.

Wolf Point Aid Shelter

Situated above a junction of multiple canyons, Wolf Point earned its name thanks to Crusader surveyor Cally Stroble who had noted excitedly in her initial report that "Against all odds, it seems a family of wolf-like creatures somehow has found a way to settle the area. Their cries can be heard for kilometers around." However, when further investigation proved that the wolves were merely a prank by a fellow surveyor, the name stuck.

Caution: Hazardous Waste Site. Authorized Personnel Only.

Artificial Satellites

Covalex Hub Gundo

Formerly Covalex’s prime shipping hub for the system, Gundo suffered a catastrophic accident that resulted in an explosion and the deaths of all the employees aboard the station. Covalex has since moved their operations to Orison directly.

Trivia

On 2904-03-17, Meiko Norwood collapsed here while loading soil samples into her ship. She passed away later that day due to complications with an artificial heart valve, making her the first person to die on Daymar.
