First discovered in 2532, Odin (marked on the initial transit logs as “Odom”) was one of the first star systems reached during mankind’s initial extrasolar expansion. A scant fifty millennia ago, a brief flicker in geological time, the system was home to multiple vibrant ecosystems similar to Earth or Terra. That all changed abruptly when Odin’s star collapsed into a white dwarf. The immediate trauma completely enveloped the system’s first planet and quickly boiled off the biospheres of the others, killing all native life. When Earth’s first explorers jumped to Odin, they found a system of icy rock worlds with uniformly foreboding exteriors.

The immediate thought was that the system could become a mining hub, but its lack of jump transit points and some unique stellar features quickly made it clear that such operations were infeasible. Thus, lacking a strategic position or a terraformable world, Odin was relegated to the saddest fate for a star system: weapons testing area. By the early 27th century, the demonic crags of Odin’s core worlds were quickly being flattened by experimental weaponry intended for sale to the UEE military.

Odin most recently became a cause celebre of the scientific community when a group of noted geobiologists came forward to point out that the government was allowing companies like Behring to wipe clean an otherwise well preserved fossil record that could tell the story of the life that came to evolve in the Odin system. While a grassroots Save The Fossils movement initially gained some traction in popular culture, interest soon faded.[1]

Long before its discovery, Odin was rendered uninhabitable when the star degenerated into a white dwarf. What is left may be mineral rich, but is completely inhospitable to Humans. Of particular interest is the Coil, an asteroid belt that suffers from constant electromagnetic storms, which considerably hampers efforts to harvest the valuable resources in the area while simultaneously providing an oasis to outlaws operating in the system.

Gravitational Governors

Odin

Odin is a White Dwarf Degenerate-A star.

Planets

Odin II

Odin II is an otherwise uninhabited world that occasionally serves as a deep-freeze training ground for UEE military operations. Its moon Vili hosts several corporate weapons testing ranges.

Odin III

A small, dead planet. While Odin III is not officially cleared as a testing ground for weapons, there have been reports of intermittent glowing craters on the planet's melted surface.

Odin IV

Odin IV is a hydrogen-rich gas giant that is home to several UEE-sponsored fuel refineries.

Asteroid Belts

The Coil : Odin I

This asteroid cluster is thought to be the remains of the first planet in the system, destroyed by a catastrophic collision. It is beset with a constant electrical storm known as the Coil. Although mining is strongly discouraged due to the environmental hazards and roaming outlaw packs that have been known to hide in the area, miners continue to try their luck at extracting the valuable minerals from Odin I's dynamic asteroids.

Artificial Satellites

Archon Base

Located within The Coil, this Shubin Interstellar Mining Colony features in Squadron 42. However it does not appear on the Starmap.
