Planet: Stamia
Table of Contents [hide]

Stamia is a gas giant located in the Taanab system that, despite being the largest planet in the system, has never been fully settled. Since its discovery, Stamia has proven hazardous to the colonizers, researchers, and miners who have attempted to explore it due to the high concentrations of methane, nangol gas, and lethane in the planet's atmosphere, all of which have been shown to interfere with most scanning and sensor systems. This combination of gases has made navigation of Stamia anywhere from prohibitively difficult to practically impossible. Radio transmitters have been in place for centuries to warn travelers away from the potential dangers, and navigational beacons have been set up to guide ambitious miners and explorers through the regions that have already been charted.

Early settlers built a shield system around Stamia to keep travelers from wandering into its hazardous conditions. Even though the outdated system is still operational, it is far from impenetrable. The allure of the dangerous, untamed atmosphere has consistently attracted thrill-seekers who want to test their skills and nerves; unofficial races through Stamia's outer layers are common, and often disastrous. Stamia has also been popular with outlaws looking for a place to hide beyond the scanners of the sector's law enforcement agencies. The planet's administrators often retrieve the wreckage of ships who failed to heed their warnings.

Much of Stamia's population live aboard a single, ancient station in a low, geosynchronous orbit and most of the residents belong to families who have lived and worked at Stamia for generations. While many are employed maintaining the shield system and navigation beacons, the planet is also home to a modest colony of methane miners and a small scrap and reclamation program.
