Kallis is a system still in its infancy. All the planetary masses are still forming and cooling. It’s not ideal for colonists and with the exception of some rare metals in unusual concentrations it’s not great for merchants… but all eyes are on the system in the scientific community. As such, the system has no native population or representation in the UEE senate; it is officially governed by a panel of Imperial researchers.

Kallis IV, survey number DXP-55.7c, has attracted particular attention because of its believed similarity to Earth at this stage of a star system’s formation. Survey teams are observing the planet from the edge of the system with orbital stations and spy-eye recon drones twenty-three hours a day and the work is less than thrilling. The potential for studying how an Earth-like planet is formed is exciting, but all parties involved know that it will take tens of thousands of years to gather the necessary data. Black market traders might be advised that the crews manning these posts will be looking for other forms of entertainment to fill their days.

Kallis’ 7th planet, a gas giant, has been identified as a potential refueling station, although only a small Lagrange platform currently exists there (not on the Starmap). The belief is that Kallis may become a jump hub as expansion into this region of the galaxy continues; canny real estate investors would be advised to purchase land deeds immediately.[1]

Planets

Kallis I

A small mass believed to be developing into a protoplanet Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis II

A rocky terrestrial world forming between two asteroid belts. Currently shares an orbit with Kallis III. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis III

Sharing the same orbital path as Kallis II, scientists are eagerly watching and wondering if one of the planets will subsume the other. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis IV

A world dominated by volcanic activity that appears to be forming an atmosphere. Members of the scientific community are particularly fixated on Kallis IV, survey number DXP-55.7c, and track its progress from the edge of the system with orbital platforms and research drones, hoping it might reveal how Earth developed. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis V

A rocky terrestrial planet without an atmosphere. It is believed that a massive meteor strike created the accretion disk swirling around this world. The coalescing debris has some scientists hypothesizing that the disk may form into a moon. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis VI

A forming terrestrial, carbon planet still early in its development. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis VII

Scientists are watching this burgeoning gas giant's atmosphere closesly to study storm formations. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis VIII

Witnessing the formation of this ice giant is of great interest to the scientific community as there are still debates as to the exact process. Composed of heavier elements than normal gas giants, it is currently believed that Kallis VIII formed closer to the star before being gravitationally scattered outward to its current orbit. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Kallis IX

This small dwarf planet's surface is a barren icy tundra dotted with active cryovolcanoes that spew freezing magma into the tumultuous ammonia-rich atmosphere. Scientists theorize that Kallis IX will slowly grow dormant over the next few millennia. Protected under the Fair Chance Act.

Asteroid Belts

The Kallis system contains two asteroid belts. Belt Alpha is located between the orbits of Kallis I and Kallis II/III. Belt Beta is located between the orbits of Kallis II/III and Kallis IV.

Space Stations

OB Station Gryphon

An observation post for scientists studying the developing system. Located at the system's edge.
