Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Erda is an asteroid 12 km at its longest chord that orbits the brown dwarf Nine as part of an accretion disk. It is the largest object in the disk, and Erda Station makes up more than 20% of the body's mass. Surface gravity is nearly negligible, but station gravity is kept at 0.8g.


Erda Station's population is barely 10,000.


Erda's tiny size and the system's lack of major resources means its only real value is as a stopover point on the way to the edge of Republic space. This has not stopped the people from carving out a niche assembling and converting land vehicles for use on the far-flung colonies of Lakshmi and Harmony.


Erda is a shining example of Republic perseverence. The inhabitants pay their taxes on time and hold their own elections consistent with Republic timetables.
