Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Holman is an Earthlike planet of 13,380 kilometers diameter and 1.1g gravities at sea level. The atmosphere is a thick, oxygen-rich 1.3atm, and water forms large oceans but covers no more than 54% of the surface area of Holman. The planetary day is 22 standard Earth hours long (give or take fifteen minutes). The planet's equatorial regions - including Holmar City, the capitol - tend to be muggy and humid, akin to the Gulf Coast region of Earth.


The planet's relative importance to the sector is reflected by its burgeoning population of 39 million citizens, focused mainly on the capitol of Holmar City. Much of the press and public interest on Holman is directed towards the Jensai, as it is here where those aliens can most often be found in the form of the Ambassador Shelanna and her diplomatic staff. The whirlwind of attention about them has fueled a subculture centered upon adopting Jensai fashion and mannerisms - even the perception of new behavior is quickly picked up by these hangers-on. Several cases of medical malpractice have already been reported due to deaths, paralyzation or other neurological injuries due to neck-lengthening cosmetic surgery requested by these Jensai admirers.
