The Greeop System



  • SYSTEM NAME: Greeop System
  • STAR NAMES: Greeop Prime (Yellow-white mature star) and Trimore (White mature star)
  • AGE: 5 billion years (both stars)
  • GOVERNMENT: Rebel Squadrons/New Republic

    The Greeop System was going to be the primary location of the New Republic forces in this frontier border sector of the Outer Rim. However, because the system is exposed to possible attack by factions of Imperial forces, it was decided by Admiral Ackbar to use the star system as a front line base with the Rebel Squadrons assigned to its already completed facilities. The Greeop System is now a key area to the New Republic in its sphere of influence of the Outer Rim, for it borders Imperial Space and the contested Minos Cluster. The Rebel Squadrons have since secured the Greeop System and been the key to the stalemate of further Imperial aggression in the area and making the Greeop System their primary base of operations and headquarters.

    Blerthmore




    Blethmore is a barren, lifeless world that serves as the location of the high tech Rebel Squadrons Fleet Domed Command Complex. This well-defended military facility is the only populated spot on the planet and one of two garrisons in the Greeop System. Surrounding the planet are three Rebel Squadron orbital platform bases that serve as defensive, training, and homes bases for the Flagship Battle Group, Redemption Fleet, and RS Academy. The orbital platform, BASE Castor, serves as the Rebel Squadrons Academy's primary training center. One of Blethmore's three moons, Uio, houses the Aegis Communications Control which is an advanced communications center that serves as the nexus of all Rebel Squadron's battle fleet and ground inter-system and intra-system communications. Also in orbit is the Eagle's Nest Ship Yard Repair and Service Facility, which serves as the primary maintenance center for every capital ship in the Rebel Squadrons.

    The planet has huge ice caps formed at each pole, probably made possible because of the extreme tilt of the planet on its axis. Blerthmore also has a very thin nitrogen atmosphere with very little oxygen. Other than that, it is a fairly uninteresting world. It was chosen as the location for the fleet command center because its large canyons provide suitable defense and there is no risk to any local populace.

    Tarsonis




    The planet of Tarsonis is a lush, beautiful, green and wet world that is the main culture and population center of the Greeop System that has boomed since joining the New Republic. Tarsonis is the home of the sentient species Nincar, which live in a primitive tribal society that have established small villages along the many waterways. First discovered by the Old Republic, it was forgotten until Alderaanian refugees became the first colonists of the planet shortly after Alderaan's destruction, looking to relocate on a world parallel to Alderaan's beauty. After the fall of Palpatines' Empire, Mon Calamari and Quarren colonists began to settle Tarsonis's deep oceans and have since turned Tarsonis into the largest Mon Calamari and Quarren population center outside of Mon Calamari itself. Both these groups of colonists leave the Nincar in peace.

    While the Alderaanian's built their cities on the land masses, the Mon Calamari and Quarren have built their floating cities in the oceans, and have untied to form a planetary government allied to the New Republic. Their joint military, the Tarsonis Defense Force (TDF), works in coalition with the Rebel Squadrons fleets to defend the planet. The TDF currently is armed with 2 squadrons of B-Wings and an Alderaan War Cruiser. Two Rebel Squadron platform bases orbit the planet that house the ships and pilots of Retribution Fleet, along with a third commanded by the TDF that houses the bulk of it's space force.

    With 75% of its surface covered by free standing water, Tarsonis also has a developing aquaculture technology led by the Mon Calamari and Quarren colonists which will hopefully be producing mass quantities of food within the next decade for export to other worlds. The Alderaanian colonists also have their own enterprises with a resort and tourist industry, taking advantage of Tarsonis's many beaches. Also notable is Tarsonis University, which is most distinguished center of higher learning in the Greeop System.

    Avalon




    This planet has become very important to the New Republic in being one of its major suppliers of irons, platinum, titanium, and various common and precious minerals used for all genres of New Republic technologies. Many important construction guilds have set up operations on the planet despite its harsh lava conditions in hopes of winning contracts for exporting the ores to the New Republic. The planet's own almost non-existent rotation causes half the world to be in a day stage for half the year, while the other half the planet experiences night for half the year.

    The Patriot Battle Fleet has been assigned to guard this mineral jewel from frequent pirate raids and Imperial aggression. They reside on a platform base that orbits the planet.

    Salsasia




    As a brown dwarf and gas giant, Salsasia is one of three major bodies in the Greoop System. It not only has eight major satellites, but hundreds of minor orbiting bodies as well. Although the moons of Salsasia receive minimal light from either star in this star system, Salsasia itself provides a considerable amount of heat that gives the moons with atmospheres a reasonably cool and sometimes temperate climate. These conditions have caused life living on the planet impossible. Space travel between the habitable moons is not recommended due to the high number of moons (ten) and several hundred minor asteroid and orb class objects orbiting the planet.

    One point of interest is the fact that three of Salsasia's moons actually orbit each other. These three moons are called Salsasia IVa, Salsasia IVb and Salsasia IVc. Each of these moons has relatively the same size and mass, but only Salsasia IVb has an atmosphere. The other two Salsasia IV moons are somewhat rich in various heavy metals. More information on Salsasia IVb is below. The other moons and minor objects have various resources which can be mined with further development of the star system, but would be a dangerous operation to pursue due to the instability of the moons and asteroids that orbit the planet.

    Salsasia III




    This moon of Salsasia has a stable cool and sometimes temperate climate allowed by the warmth generated by Salsasia. The presence of bocca and the ability to set up large scale agricultural efforts has made this moon the perfect location for advanced medical and farming companies, but being on Salsasia III has its draw backs. Because of this moon's location and it being one of the many hundreds of planetary bodies orbiting it's mother planet, Salsasia, space travel to export the medical and agricultural goods are dangerous for inexperienced transport pilots. This has caused some companies to find an enterprise on Salsasia III unprofitable. Although a few major medicine and agricultural facilities remain in the last city on the planet named Termorus. This city and the Termorus Agricultural Complex are the only areas habited by the populous.

    The moon itself also has signs of artificial terraforming efforts, but no physical evidence can prove or disprove this opinion. If it was terraformed, it is believed that it must have been done more than 10,000 years ago. Life on the Salsasia III is mostly lower mammalian and reptile like animals of various sizes and adaptations. Some crustaceans live in the two great lakes. Other animal life forms are microscopic. The plant life is mostly flowers and ground hugging brushes. It is surprising to see actual flowers propagate on a moon that receives so little light.

    Salsasia IVb




    Salsasia IVb is a lifeless world with a surprisingly breathable (but still thin) atmosphere. In an effort to improve the usefulness of the moon, the New Republic has built a terraforming complex. The Gyna Terraforming Facility and it's domed living areas for workers and staff are the only non-military structures and people on the planet, although they are contracted by the New Republic. Over time, various lifeforms will be able to inhabit the surface of this world.

    The main purpose of this world for the New Republic is to serve as the training facility and command complex for the ground troops in the Rebel Squadrons Commando Division. The harsh, yet still livable environment is perfect for preparing troops for the worst conditions and the mountainous moon is naturally protected because of the many moons and asteroids that surround the Salsasia space lanes. The heavily defended Knight Spire mountain installation serves as the command center for the RSCD and is the secondary Rebel Squadrons garrison in the Greeop System.
