This FAQ is about the planets of Mass Effect. I will give the info the game
gives about each of the planets and whether or not they can be landed on or
surveyed and what journal entries or quests are related to them. For the ones
you can land (that aren't story specific) this guide will also tell you
points of interest on the planet.

----------------------------------Varmalus------------------------------------

Varmalus has a thick atmosphere of nitrogen and helium. Its surface is
scorching hot, and mainly composed of alumina with deposits of borax. The 
planet has an extensive network of subterranean caves, formed over the 
millennia by volcanic processes. In these relatively cool areas, some primitive
life has developed.

-----------------------------------Metgos-------------------------------------

WARNING: Level 2 Heat Hazard

Metgos is a large terrestrial planet with an atmosphere of carbon dioxide and 
nitrogen. Its hot surface is mainly composed of nickel with deposits of 
potassium and heavy metals. It is a mineralogical treasure trove, with
concentrated heavy elements constantly being brought to the surface by volcanic
activity.

Metgos is inhospitable and dangerous, and expeditions must be well-prepared
to survive any length of time. With its high mass, heat-trapping clouds and
constant volcanic venting, Metgos seems well on its way to becoming a Venusian
'pressure cooker' world.

----------------------------------Theyar--------------------------------------

Theyar is a large gas giant with traces of chlorine and sodium in its 
atmosphere. It also has a significant amount of water vapor in the clouds of 
its upper atmosphere.

Theyar was struck by an asteroid at least 12 kilometers in diameter within the
last hundred years. The superheating caused by the impactor's atmospheric
passage created a large bank of vicious storms along the equatorial band.

Orbital Period: 12.8 Earth Years
Radius: 60,774 km
Day Length: 11.8 Earth Hours

-----------------------------------Canrum-------------------------------------

Canrum is a small, rocky world with a trace atmosphere of methane and krypton:
Its surface is mainly composed of magnesium and silicates with deposits of 
carbon.

Canrum was the site of the warlord Shiagur's defeat by turian peacekeeping
forces during the Krogan Rebellions. While this band was not especially 
powerful, Shiagur was a female warlord - and one of the few remaining fertile
females, at that. She had, through viciousness and cunning, parlayed here 
unique value into a position of power. Krogan males competed for the right to 
join her band and lie with her.

When Shiagur's death was announced, vengeful male krogan admirers near and far
swore both oaths against the participating turian crews. In the end, several 
thousands of the turian participants were killed in open combat or through 
assassination. To this day, many krogan proudly proclaim that they have the
'blood of Shiagur.'

Orbital Period: 67.3 Earth Years
Radius: 5,220 km
Day Length: 32.5 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.07 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -132 Celsius

                               ~~Gorgon System~~
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: This system is unlocked after you get the UNC: Depot Sigma-23 assignment
which is after you complete both UNC: Listening Post Alpha and UNC: Listening
Post: Theta.

--------------------------------------Wuo-------------------------------------

Wuo is a planet in the Gorgon system of the Argos Rho cluster. It is a 
terrestrial planet only known from scan data picked up by unmanned probes. 
Though over 76 AU from the blue giant Gorgon, temperatures in Wuo's orbit are 
still dangerously high. Only ships with very powerful heat radiating systems 
can venture that deep into the system.

Fortunately, Wuo is not a terribly interesting world. it has a thin atmosphere 
of nitrogen and methan, and the scorching surface is mainly composed of alumina
with deposits of platinum. The world is tidally locked to Wuo, leaving the 
sunward side scorched and irradiated wasteland, and the dark side a frigid and
ice-crusted. 

Orbital Period: 158.0 Earth Years
Radius: 6,959 km
Day Length: 158.0 Earth Years
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.44 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 1,157 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.66 G

-------------------------------------Vectra-----------------------------------

Vectra is a typical hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of methane and sodium
in its atmosphere. The heat of the star Gorgon is slowly blasting away the gas
giant's mass atmosphere, which is visible as a long, dim tail that traits 
behind the planet.

Orbital Period: 234.7 Earth Years
Radius: 69,833 km
Day Length: 234.7 Earth Years
 
------------------------------------Camaron-----------------------------------

Camaron is a terrestrial world with a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and 
argon. The surface is scorching hot, and mainly composed of iron with deposits 
of nickel. Like Wuo, Camaron is tide-locked to the blue giant, forever "looking
into the face of Gorgon."

Orbital Period: 664.8 Earth Years
Radius: 5,198 km
Day Length: 664.8 Earth Years
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.23 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 747 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.55 G

-----------------------------------Sharblu------------------------------------

A standard hydrogen-helium gas giant, the methane in Sharblu's atmosphere gives
it an azure blue.

The asari crew who initially surveyed the system (during Earth's 17th century) 
named Sharblue after a then-popular soprano. The singer was renowned for her 
unusual skin tone, which was quite similar to that of the planet. 

Orbital Period: 1,711.0 Earth Years
Radius: 43,342 km
Day Length: 1,711.0 Earth Years

-------------------------Unidentified Space Facility--------------------------

This space station appears to have been assembled from used "off the shelf"
civilian ship modules of diverse origins. There are no obvious hull markings,
and it is not broadcasting any ID signal.

------------------------------------Slekon------------------------------------

Orbiting at an unbelievable distance of 710 AU (over 66 billion kilometers)
from Gorgon, Slekon is a huge gas giant, with an atmosphere tainted by methane
and chlorine. 

Its 17.8 sol-mass star cannot have formed before 7.48 million years ago. At
that age, Jupiter had a radius upward of 100000 km.

Slekon is more likely a young Neptune in mass.

Orbital Distance: 710 AU

-----------------------------------Patashi------------------------------------

Patashi is a sun-blasted terrestrial world whose atmosphere was blasted away
millennia ago by the star Phoenix. The surface is scorching hot, and mainly
composed of iron with deposits of tin.

Due to its relatively low density, Patashi is tidally locked to Phoenix. Seas
of molten light metals cover much of the sunward side.

Orbital Period: 0.3 Earth Years
Radius: 7082 km
Day Length: 0.3 Earth Years
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.00 Earth Atmospheres

----------------------------Carbonaceous Asteroid-----------------------------

This asteroid is emitting weak, intermittent signal at a frequency of 1540 MHz.

Radius: 71 km

AFTER SURVEY: 

PROTHEAN DATA DISC RECOVERED

During a scan of the Phoenix system asteroid field, you detected an odd energy
reading that Tali determined was quarian in nature. She led the recon team into 
the asteroid field, where she discovered and abandoned freighter. The team 
could not determine why the ship was there but they did find a Prothean data 
disc on board.

--------------------------------Sylsalto--------------------------------------

Sylsalto is a standard hydrogen-helium gas giant. It has no remarkable 
features.

Orbital Period: 36.0 Earth Years
Radius: 56,621 km
Day Length: 13.6 Earth Hours

---------------------------------Tuntau---------------------------------------

Tuntau is an enormous, low-density terrestrial planet, with a thick atmosphere
of methane and helium. Despite being nearly 20 AU from Phoenix, the star's 
great heat and the insulating thickness of the atmosphere make the surface
surprisingly temperate.

The crust is composed of and mainly composed of sodium and silicon dioxide
with deposits of various light metals. While Tuntau is not habitable,
conditions make it a popular location for small ships traveling through the
Argos Rho cluster to land for drive discharge.

Orbital Period: 63.0 Earth Years
Radius: 11,867 km
Day Length: 69.7 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 3.12 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 21 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 1.1 G

Points of Interest: 

-Hidden Structure: You will encounter a group of pirates outside of it. On 
the inside you will find more and encounter someone named Tonn Actus. After
they are all dead you can find some items and a hardened crate in the next 
room. If you go upstairs you can find a wall safe and when you open it you
get a message:

Hanging in the back of the safe is a suit of armor, obviously made for a 
krogan. It seems worthless; rusted and dented from a hundred battles. The
turian must have secured it for some reason - there's nothing else of value 
here.

-Anomaly: An Asari Capsule and a strange pyramid. From the asari capsule:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

You found one of Matriarch Dilinaga's writings on this body. It's possible
the writings came from the nearby ruins.

-Mercury Deposit: It is located between the Anomaly and the Debris.

-There is also a light metal deposit on the planet

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

---------------------------Pinnacle Station-----------------------------------

Only available in the Pinnacle Station downloadable content.

Pinnacle Station is asteroid-based -- close to the planet Vebinok -- and was
originally constructed by the turians to function as a concealed command
center during the Krogan Rebellions. It was later retrofitted as a military
training facility by the Citadel for highly-skilled special operations teams
employed by the Council.

The combat simulator allows for training under a variety of hazardous
conditions, and promising competitors from all races attend by invitation
only. The station has a radius of 340m and a working population of 1200,
and is currently commanded by the Systems Alliance Admiral Ahern.

--------------------------------Vebinok---------------------------------------

Vebinok is a small terrestrial world with a thin atmosphere of krypton and 
xenon. Its frozen surface is mainly composed of carbonaceous material, water
ice, and low-density silicates. Rare but concentrated lodes of light metals
have been deposited by asteroid impacts.

One hemisphere of Vebinok is covered by surface deposits of oxidized copper.
Approximately 270 years ago a turian bulk gas transport was attacked by pirates 
in the Phoenix system. Damaged, it made a rough landing on Vebinok. The heat
of the landing melted significant quantities of surface ice, and ruptured the
shipping containers spilling LOX across the surface. Before this evaporated
and escaped Vebinok's weak gravity, it reacted to cause the widespread rust.

Orbital Period: 94.5 Earth Years

-------------------------------Intai'sei--------------------------------------

Only available in the Pinnacle Station downloadable content.

An atmosphere similar to Earth's made Intai'sei an early candidate for human
colonization. However, prohibitively high temperatures and an arid climate
have proven a hindrance to terraforming and agriculture. A few human cities
were founded, but the majority of the human population on Inta'sei remains
scattered across the vast deserts, operating wind farms and geological research
stations.

--------------------------------Junthor---------------------------------------

Junthor is a large terrestrial planet with a thick atmosphere of carbon dioxide
and chlorine. The surface is mainly composed of aluminum with deposits of 
nickel.

Surveyors found the ruins of a technical civilization near the equator - 
evidently the colony of an ancient spacefaring race. The ruins had subsided to 
almost nothing - merely wind-hollowed husks of arcologies and other 
megastructures. In the center of the ruins was a single column whose 
inscriptions defied translation for several centuries.

When asari linguists finally managed a translation, the elaborate relief
carvings said merely, 'Walk among these works, and know our greatness.' The
cruse scratches on the base of the reverse side said, 'Monsters of the id.'

Orbital Period: 0.2 Earth Years

Day Length: 56.7 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.96 Earth Atmospheres

AFTER SURVEY:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

Scans revealed a wrecked freighter orbiting one of Junthor's smaller moons. A
recon team found no signs of life, but they did recovered one of Matriarch
Dilinaga's writings.

-----------------------------------Pressha------------------------------------

Pressha is a relatively small hydrogen-helium gas giant with large amounts of
hydrocarbons in the middle layers of the atmosphere.

When the Krogan Rebellions ended three millennia ago, the turian chief of naval
operations, a distinguished soldier named Mehrkuri, declared his immediate
retirement. He disappeared into what was then uncharted territory. It was only
two hundred years ago that his ship was found on the surface of Pressha's
largest moon. It had landed gently and been deliberately shut down. Of Admiral
Mehrkrui, however, no trace was ever found.

Orbital Period: 0.7 Earth Years
Radius: 38,482 km
Day Length: 16.2 Earth Hours

-----------------------------------Rayingri-----------------------------------

Rayinggri is a small, barren terrestrial world. While is possesses a reasonably
temperate climate and a number of useful resources, no mining corporation is
willing to risk investment.

A rouge planetoid, dubbed Vahtz by the initial salarian surveyor team, entered
the system ten thousand years ago, and was trapped in decaying orbit around
Rayingri. It is nearing the end of its slow spiral inwards. Earthquakes and
cyclonic windstorms are increasingly common on Rayingri.

Within a few hundred years, the planets will rip each other apart. Some asari 
travel consortiums have already announced sponsorship of cruises to observe
the spectacle.

Radius: 5171 km

Points of Interest:

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Overrun Research Outpost: You will see a bunch of the Geth spikes on the 
outside but no enemies yet. On the instead you will encounter several husks.
After they are all dead some Geth Troopers and Snipers and several Geth 
Destroyers will appear. After they are all dead and you head outside several
more Geth will drop down from the sky.

-Anomaly: A crashed escape pod. You can recover an artifact from it:

MEDALLION RECOVERED

This downed pod contained a League of One medallion. Its owner is nowhere to
be found.

-There is a Polonium deposit right near the anomaly/crashed pod.

-Above the anomaly/Polonium deposit there is an abandoned camp with a crate you
can search. It has some items in it and after you search it you will get a
message:

"The scavengers who made this camp are gone. They seem to have abandoned it 
abruptly some time ago."

-There is a scavenger's corpse in the upper left of the map. You can examine
it:

"DISCOVERY

The burnt corpses - evidently a 'mom and pop' independent salvage team - show 
signs of close range hits from geth heavy particle beams."

-There is a titanium deposit a little to the right of where you drop down in
the Mako.

-There is also a light mineral deposit on the planet

-------------------------------------Sogelrus---------------------------------

Sogelrus is a small terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere of nitrogen and
argon. The frigid surface is mainly composed of water ice, which can be plainly
seen in the bottoms of recent craters. The dark coloration of the surface is
caused by a carbon and ferrous material, pushed up from the denser core by
cryovolcanic processes.

Orbital Period: 1.8 Earth Years
Radius: 4327 km
Day Length: 63.9 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.52 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -136 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.46 G

-------------------------------------Antirumgon-------------------------------

Antirumgon is a small rock and ice planet, with a trace atmosphere of methane
and ethane. The frozen surface is mainly composed of carbon with deposits of
calcium.

Antirumgon has been used as a crude anchorage for Terminus pirates for many 
years. The shells of temporary dwellings blasted by Alliance frigate patrols dot
the surface. But always, the pirates return to ground after their ships' drive 
charges, chip out some water ice, and trade slaves and stories.

The deeper layers of Antirumgon's interior are semi-liquid slush, due to the 
presence of methanol. It is thought that bacterium in the deep core create this
natural anti-freeze. Some species of Terminus pirate drill through the ice crust
to recover this natural alcohol.

---------------------------------Benda----------------------------------------

Benda has a dense atmosphere of sulphur dioxide and chlorine. Though 
technically classified as a 'terrestrial' world, but the surface of the
planet has never cooled enough for a crust to form. It is a global sea of
molten rock. Like Zaherux, its atmosphere is being blasted away by the
solar wind. Once its thick atmosphere is gone, Benda's surface will
be a 'mere' 400 degrees C.

Orbital Period: 812.3 Earth Years
Radius: 6788 km
Day Length: 41.2 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 26.35 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 3151 Celsius

AFTER SURVEY:

MEDALLION RECOVERED

Scans of Brenda uncovered an ancient salarian vessel. A small team was 
dispatched to search for valuables. The only item of value recovered was a
League of One medallion.

--------------------------------Zaherux---------------------------------------

Zaherux's nitrogen-argon atmosphere is being blasted away by the solar wind of
the blue giant Grissom. Its surface consists of 'seas' of loose silica dust,
some kilometers deep, which periodically swirl into global sandstorms.

Many unmanned probes to zaherux have been lost over the years. Though 
investigation has attributed all mechanical failure or computational error, a 
popular extranet meme insists the entire planet is composed of dormat 
nanotechnology, created millenia ago by a race even more advanced then the 
Protheans.

According to the story, Zaherux's silica dust is actually 'disassembler' 
robots which periodically awaken to defend themselves. Though discounted by 
every reputable scientist, this theory has been popularized by a series of
sensationalistic texts of asari author Delsae Orthysa.

Notanban is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of ammonia. Molecular
nitrogen is present at the highest levels of the atmosphere, giving the planet
an odd violet tint.

The upper levels of Notanban's atmosphere are inhabited by 'shoals' of tiny
ammonia-based lifeforms, nor larger of more complex then the plankton of
Earth's oceans. Held aloft by air pressure and wind, these bioluminescent
creatures constantly flee from the approach of the terminator. Should they be
exposed to the light and heat of Grissom, they die.

Orbital Period: 990.5 Earth Years
Radius: 73,314 km
Day Length: 16.9 Earth Years

---------------------------------Solcrum--------------------------------------

WARNING: Level 1 Heat Hazard

Solcrum is the largest moon of the gas giant Notangrum. It has a trace
atmosphere of krypton and xenon. The crust is composed of various metals with
deposits of sodium. As with every body in the solar system, the surface is
scorching hot and thoroughly irradiated by the blue giant Grissom. Surface
excursions without proper protective gear are certain to prove fatal.

On Approach to Notanban, Normandy's passive sensor array intercepted a
fragmentary coded transmission from the surface of Solcrum. Attempts to
decrypt the message were fruitless; it does not appear to be in any
software coding language used by the Citadel races.

Orbital Distance: 10,367,883 km (from Notanban)
Orbital Period: 0.6 Earth Years
Radius: 4534 km
Day Length: 0.6 Earth Hours

Points of Interest:

-Anomaly: An asari capsule, you can recover the artifact for a Matriarch's 
writings

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

There were several artifacts stored here, all worthless except for one
of Matriarch Dilinaga's writings. Whether it was uncovered at this dig
site or elsewhere is unclear.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Base: The geth HQ. You will encounter two Geth Colossus along
with some Rocket Troopers in towers around it. Once you enter it you
will encounter some stalkers and a sapper along with some juggernauts
and even a destroyer or two.

Once they are all dead you will receive a message:

"As the last geth falls, you hear music from across the room. On the
moniter, a quarian stands before a hushed crowd, warbling a mournful
a capella of worlds and innocence lost. The recorded song is
dispatched to geth worlds behind the Perseus Veil. The transmitter
shuts down."

If you want now you can go to the far room on the first floor and
access the geth terminal:

"You discover a number of encrypted geth data files. In the proper
hands they could reveal much about the evolution of the geth since
the banishment of the quarians."

-There is a uranium deposit north of the geth HQ.

-There is a thorium deposit in the upper middle part of the map.

-There is a light metal deposit on the planet.

Casbin is a classic 'pre-garden' terrestrial world, with conditions similar to
those on Earth millions of years ago. Its hot, humid atmosphere is mainly 
composed of nitrogen and carbon dioxide. An increasing amount of the surface
is covered by simple lichen and algae. Should no unexpected calamity occur,
these tiny planets will change the atmosphere into an Earth-like nitrogen-oxygen
mix over the next few millennia.

Due to its potential for future habitability and sapient life, Casbin has
been designated a Sanctuary World by the Citadel Council. Landing is
prohibited by law, and any disturbance of the fragile young ecosystem will
result in harsh fines and imprisonment.

At present, the planet is passing through the debris trail of a long-period
comet.

-----------------------------------Matar--------------------------------------

Matar is a terrestrial planet with a thick atmosphere composed of nitrogen and
krypton. Its frigid surface is mainly composed of sodium oxide with deposits
of copper. Because of noxious surface gases, explorers are warned to use
extreme caution.

Matar lacks a magnetic field, This makes it useless for discharging FTL drive
cores in orbit. The energetic particles of solar wind from Hong strike the
upper atmosphere directly, ionizing the krypton. This gives the planet its
distinctive 'minty' green-white hue.

Orbital Period: 29.8 Earth Years
Radius: 4599 km
Day Length: 54.5 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 3.72 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -64 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.57 G

AFTER SURVEY:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

Scans of Matar revealed debris from a destroyed asari freighter. Further scans
uncovered a body which was brought on board. Dr. Chakwas examined it but learned
nothing about its origins. Among the asari's personal effects, however, was one
of Matriarch Dilinaga's writings.

-----------------------------------Theshaca-----------------------------------

Theshaca is a standard hydrogen-heliumg gas giant. In the past, it was often 
used as a drive discharge point for pirates raiding human settlements from the
Terminus System. In 2178 the Alliance set up a network of covert sensing
devices on Theshaca's moons. Recording of pirate FTL exit vectors over the
course of six months led the Alliance Navy to eight major pirate anchorages.
Since the 'Theshaca Raids,' no ships from the Terminus have been reported in
the Hong system.

anomalous readings. After some daring maneuvering by Joker, a small team was
able to recover some debris from one of the larger rocks. Among the items
discovered was a League of One medallion.

-----------------------------------Antibaar-----------------------------------

Antibaar is a cold terrestrial world with an atmosphere of methane and argon. 
Its frozen surface is mainly composed of iron with deposits of magnesium. The
world has been noted as a possible target for long-term terraforming; if the 
atmosphere could be increased to the thickness of Earth's, the global average
temperature would rise by 10 degree Celsius.

Antibaar's combination of low temperatures, high speed surface winds, and low
visibility make it dangerous to explore on foot.

There is a Prothean Ruin nearby which you can see on your radar. Go there and 
recover the artifact:

PROTHEAN DATA DISC RECOVERED

Searching the ruins you discover a Prothean data disc. It must have been dropped
by one of the thresher maw's many victims.

-There is a magnesium deposit between the ruins/anomaly and the outpost.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Geth Outpost: The outpost has several rocket troopers and snipers around it and
even a Colossus. After they are all dead a dropship will fly in and drop off 
some shock troopers and even two Geth Prime along with a couple of others.

-There is a Mercury deposit in-between the left and middle of the lower area of
the map.

-There is a Lithium deposit in the lower right hand area of the map.

-There is another light mineral deposit on the planet.

----------------------------------Patamalrus----------------------------------

Patamalrus' atmosphere is very similar to Venus in terms of pressure and 
temperature. Unlike Venus, however, Patamalrus' atmosphere has significant
quantities of oxygen, both free and bound in sulphur dioxides. The surface
is largely composed of carbon. it is possible, if unlikely, that simple life
may be developing on Patamalrus.

Computer modeling suggests that the powerful solar winds from the Tereshkova
stars will blow off Patamalrus' atmosphere in a few million years, lowering
the temperature on the surface to the -70s.

------------------------------------Hunsalra----------------------------------

Hunsalra is a small hydrogen-helium gas giant. It has unusually large amounts of
nitrogen in the upper atmosphere, which glow purple when ionized by the solar

-----------------------------------Thegeuse-----------------------------------

Thegeuse is a terrestrial world with an atmosphere of chlorine and krypton. The
surface is mainly composed of silicates with deposits of carbon. Thegeuse has a
low mass for its size and is tidally locked to the star Tereshkova-A. The
temperature difference between the sunward 'hot pole' and the dark side 'cold
pole' creates constant gale-force winds across the terminator.

----------------------------------Solmarlon-----------------------------------

Solmarlon is one of Tereshkova's two outer worlds. Significantly removed from
the rest of the system, and with unstable elliptical orbits, it is thought they
may have formed within 3 AU of the binary stars, and were hurled outward due to
the instability of such an orbit.

Solmarlon is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with significant quantities of sodium
in the upper atmosphere, giving it a distinct grey color.

Orbital Period: 399.7 Earth Years
Radius: 69,862 km
Day Length: 14.4 Earth Hours

-----------------------------------Mawinor------------------------------------

Mawinor is the second of Tershkova's outer worlds. It is essentially a rock of
unremarkable ores with some deposits of water ice, but no minerals of value. The
frozen surface is composed of silica.

Like the gas giant Solmarlon, it is thought that Mawinor formed too close to the
Tereshkova stars and was thrown outwards by gravitational effects. Computer
models suggest it will be ejected from the system in a few hundred thousand
years.

Orbital Period: 662.7 Earth Years

------------------------------------Maji--------------------------------------

Maji orbits the Vamashi binary giant stars. Vamashi-A is a blue star of the 
spectral class A41111 which burns at half again the temperature of Sol.
Vamashi-B is an aging red giant of class M5111, over 220 times the size of Sol.

Maji has a thin atmosphere of methane and carbon monoxide. The difference in
temperature between the hemisphere facing the suns and that facing deep space
causes constant wind, stirring the silica and sodium dust of the surface.

Unsavory characters from the Terminus Systems occasionally use Maji for forms
of cruel sport, dumping slaves, hostages, quarreling shipmates, or even (when
bored) vicious animals on the surface. One must kill the other before they will
be rescued from the lethal radiation of the giant stars.

This massive skull is scored by deflected mass accelerator shots. The 
xenobiology files in your hardsuit computer can't identify the species. It
must have been brought here from an unknown world.

There is a mineral deposit to the southwest of the Anomaly.

Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

There is a mineral deposit a little bit above the middle of the Anomaly and
debris on the map.

Geth Outpost: There are several heavy turrets around it. After all 5 are
destroyed you will approach the outpost where you will be attacked by snipers
and rocket troopers. If you just take them all out with the Mako's cannon it
shouldn't be too difficult. After they are all dead a Colossus will drop down
in the middle of the outpost.

---------------------------------Salamis--------------------------------------

The geological properties of Salamis have been scanned from orbit, but little
else is known about it. Due to its thick carbon dioxide atmosphere and
proximity to the energetic star Athens, the equatorial daytime temperatures
have been known to turn the surface molten. The crust is composed of iron with
deposits of platinum group metals.

----------------------------------Proteus-------------------------------------

Like the hanar homeworld, Proteus has more than 90% oceanic cover. The
incredible heat thrown off from Athens raises global humidity to 100%, creates
constant cloud cover, and powers colossal typhoons that rage across the
surface year-round.

Hot, humid, and storm-wracked. Proteus' rare combination of oxygen-nitrogen
atmosphere and carbon-based biosphere nevertheless recommend it for 
colonization. A pilot program is studying the possibility of colonies below the
ocean surface, safe from the worst effects of the weather.

-------------------------------------Pharos-----------------------------------

Distant Pharos has seen only a cursory examination by an unmanned probe. It has
a trace atmosphere of nitrogen and argon. Its surface is mainly composed of tin
with deposits of carbon. Deeper craters have been partially filled by ice, 
suggesting there may be a significant amount of water locked beneath its frozen
surface. A large, ice-bright crater in the southern hemisphere makes the planet
visible from the inner system, leading to the planet's name.

------------------------------------Therum------------------------------------

Therum is a distant but rich industrial world claimed by the human Systems
Alliance. Its plentiful heavy metals have fueled the recent manufacturing boom
on Earth. Core samples rich with the fossils of simple silicon-based organisms 
indicate that Therum was more habitable in the past then it is at present.
Perhaps this explains the many Prothean ruins dotting the surface, most of
which have been looted by mining corporations.

---------------------------------------Armeni---------------------------------

Armeni is a terrestrial world with an unusually thin atmosphere of krypton and
xenon. Its surface is composed of silica with deposits of carbonaceous 
materials. The initial flyby probe of Armenia detected multiple areas at the
equator with oddly regular surface protrusions.

Closer investigation revealed these as millions of elaborate crypts a few
meters below the surface, left by a long-extinct spacefaring species called
zeioph. Many human universities wish to perform archeological excavations.
Council law holds grave sites as sacrosanct, however, and the matter has been
lied up in court for a decade.

---------------------------------Patavig--------------------------------------

Patavig is the second of Macedon system's giant terrestrial planets, and by
far the more interesting. Most of the surface is covered by a vast sea of
liquid ammonia, in which a unique aquatic ammonia-based biosphere has 
developed. While the frozen continents are largely bereft of life, a rich 
bounty of complex organisms - many larger than a human - flourish in the 
chilly, toxic seas.

While dreadfully inhospitable to humans, Patavig is suitable for colonization 
by the volus. Negotiations between the Systems Alliances and the volus'

----------------------------------Altaaya-------------------------------------

Altaaya is an usually large terrestrial world with a trace atmosphere of 
methane and ammonia. The surface is frozen, and mainly composed of sandstone 
and other sedimentary rocks with deposits of iron and chlorides. Judging by the
sedimentary composition of the crust, it appears that Altaaya once possessed an
atmosphere thick enough to support some form of liquid. With cataclysm stripped
the atmosphere and left the planet to freeze is not currently known.

-----------------------------------Ontamalca----------------------------------

Ontamalca is a large hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of chlorine and
sulphur in the atmosphere. Its massive gravity well takes many asteroids from
the outer belt inwards, past the orbit of Altaaya and Edolus and eventually
settle in the inner belt.

Ontamalca's orbit is congested with hundreds of captured moons. Most last
only a few thousand years before being ejected, dragged down into the
atmosphere, or ripped apart by tidal forces and added to the gas giant's
immense rings. Attempting to navigate this chaotic environment is hazardous at
best. Ships without military grade kinetic barriers are likely to suffer
catastrophic impacts.

occasional deposits of light metals.

During the Alliance's pirate suppression campaign in the 2160's, the batarian
Eluam Ran'perah was caught with his frigate Tunerron grounded for drive
discharge. When challenged by the cruiser Hyderabad, Ran'perah refused
to surrender. The Tunerron was destroyed attempted to take off. The debris

----------------------------------Syided--------------------------------------

The proximity of the energetic star Hercules causes constant blue and violet 
aurorae in Syided' nitrogen-argon atmosphere. During periods of increased 
solar flares, the aurorae are bright enough to read by on the surface, and can
be seen with off-the-shell optics from a distance of several ALI.

Syided's scorching hot surface is mainly composed of magnesium with deposits 
of iron. A surprising variety of simple carbon-based life flourishes in a 
complex network of cave systems that wind through the crust, protected from 
Hercules' heat and radiation.

---------------------------------Elentania------------------------------------

WARNING: Level 1 Toxic Hazard

Eletania appears to be a world eminently suited for colonization. Sadly, 
appearances can be deceiving. It is covered by a verdant carpet of mosses, 
algae, and lichen, and possesses a thick oxygenated atmosphere, but the animal
kingdom is a web of microscopic symbiotic creatures. These are impossible to 
filter from the air and necessary for the native life to thrive. 
Unfortunately, they also cause anaphylactic shock when inhaled by non-native 
life.

In short, settlement required either fully sealed environmental suit, or 
replacement of the entire world's ecosystem. Some have proposed limited 
colonization at altitudes above the symbiots' range, or in areas where 
favorable winds keep the air clear.

There are several monkey homes and two debris, the one in the center of the
map is for a mission while the one to the top left gives you items. One other
interesting thing is the Anomaly:

The Anomaly: A Prothean artifact

Do the asari consort mission be coming to the anomaly and after you do the 
mission and have the trinket she gives you something happens:

"Examining the strange Prothean artifact reveals a small, irregular slot on the 
underside of the surface. Remembering the strange trinket you received from the
asari Consort on the Citadel, you pull it out and place it into the slot. The 
ball explodes in a brilliant flash of white light, momentarily blinding and 
disorienting you.
                                ***
Slowly your senses return as you wake from a deep sleep. You are along in the 
forest, though you are not far from the caves you share with the others of 
your tribe. There is a pain and a small lump in the back of your skill, as if 
a chip of flint has been forced under the surface of your skin.

Leaning on your bone-tipped spear for support, you rise to your feet. A sound 
draws your attention upward, where a strange creatures hovers high above you. 
It is unlike the birds you hunt by the lake's edge - it has no head and no 
wings yet somehow it flies. It is a breast of shining silver; hanging 
motionless in the sky like a cloud. You sense it is watching you, studying you.

Raising a hairy fist, you shake your spear at it in anger and the creatures 
rises up quickly until it disappears from view. With a satisfied grunt you 
make your way back to your caves and the rest of the tribe. 

You fall into the familiar patterns of life - the hunt for food, the struggle 
to claim and keep a mate, the battle against the other tribes that would claim
your territory. Days roll into nights and back into days. Each time you rise 
from sleep there is the sensation that you are not alone; that some 'other' is
with you sharing all you see, hear and feel. At these times your hand goes to 
the st range lump at the back of your skull and you remember the silver 
creature in the sky.

The air grows colder, winter falls. You must range farther for food, clutching
the furs tight against you to ward off the chill. It is on one of these long 
hunts that the strange bird returns. You hear it before you see it, its call a
deafening roar as it descends from above, swooping down at you. A single great
eye opens on the underbelly, a glowing red orb. You try to run, but a finger 
of red light extends from the eye and engulfs you, and all goes black again.

You wake an instant later to find yourself on Eletania lying on your back, the
Prothean artifact looming above you undamaged and your companions standing 
over you. They help you to your feet, puzzled. 'There was a flash of light and
you just sort of toppled over,' one explains. 'Are you okay, Shepard?' the 
other asks. You don't answer right away, wondering at the implications of what
you have seen: the memories of a Cro-Magnon hunter, captured by an implanted 
Prothean data recorder. How long did they study the primitive humans, 
observing them and analyzing the results art their base on Mars? And what, if 
anything, did they learn from us?

'I'm find,' you finally reply, realizing this is a mystery you will probably 
never solve. 'Forget about it.'"

Sytau is shrouded by a high-pressure atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide and
sulfuric acids. The surface is composed of geologically young plains of 
volcanic basalts and rhyolites, with high concentrations of carbon and 
radioactives.

Syau is rabidly volcanic; a dozen 'supervolcanoes' 0-120 kilometers wide are 
erupting across the planet. Sytau's carbon content and constant volcanism make
natural diamonds plentiful, if extremely costly and dangerous to recover.

Sharring is a standard hydrogen-helium gas giant. The atmosphere contains 
traces of ammonia, methane, and surprisingly large amounts of water vapor, 
making the atmosphere a striking mix of browns, blues, and whites. Of 
Sharring's 60-odd moons, two have diameters of over 3000 kilometers. Both have
signs of former Prothean development, suggesting Sharring may have been mined 
for helium-3.

Engineer Adams pinpointed the source and located a strange object. Talio and 
Adams brought it on board and spent several hours taking it apart. The purpose
of the object was Prothean in nature and contained a data disc.

------------------------------------Quana-------------------------------------

Quana's frozen surface is rich with heavy metals, and the planet's higher than
average density suggests further mineral richness in the depths. The 
atmosphere is composed of nitrogen and carbon monoxide.

The remains of a well-developed Prothean mining infrastructure dot the planet. 
Abandoned mines are connected to dead cities by collapsed maglev lines. 
Unlike the crumbling skyscrapers of Feros, Quana's ruins are reasonably

------------------------------------Zion--------------------------------------

Zion is a hydrogen-helium gas giant even larger than Jupiter. Despite its deep
gravity well and lethal radiation, it supports a small helium-3 mining industry.
The reason is simple; as the only gas giant in the Utopia system, it is the
only local source of fuel for Eden Prime's power stations and space ports.

Zion has 112 satellites, ranging from captured asteroids to the moon of

water ice and iron oxides, which cryovolcanic plumes of potassium concentrated
around the equatorial ridge.

Nirvana has little of commercial of scientific interest. Though a few geological
research stations were constructed in the early 2160s, all have been shut down

Terra Nova was one of the Class-1 colonization prospects discovered by the
first wave of Alliance surveys in 2150. It was the second human extrasolar
colony, and the first beyond the Charon Mass Relay. It currently has the
highest population of any Alliance colony.

Though banded by a harsh equatorial desert, areas closer to the poles are
temperate. The pace of development was modest until extensive deposits of
platinum were discovered in the 2170s. This rare metal, required in the
clean-burning hydrogen cells that power private vehicles, attracted a
'platinum rush' of immigrants and investment from throughout Alliance
space. In the past twelve years, Terra Nova has seen a 30% rise in
population, and growth does not appear to be slowing.

--------------------------------Astroid X57-----------------------------------

X57 is a metallic asteroid, originally located at the trailing Lagrange point
of the gas giant Borr. With the increased development on Terra Nova, a new
orbital port facility was necessary. Due to a shortage of funding, it was
decided to 'mine out' X57, using the recovered resources to finish out the
interior for habitation. The asteroid was decelerated from Borr's orbit using
fusion torches, allowing it to fall into the orbit of Terra Nova.

*Before Bring Down The Sky is completed:

Recently, communications with the engineering team on X57 have been lost. The
fusion torches have reignited, and the asteroid is accelerating towards Terra
Nova.

*After Bring Down The Sky is completed:

Asteroid X57 has been brought under control. Once repairs are complete, the
asteroid will be carefully maneuvered into geosynchronous orbit around Terra
Nova. Though the batarian terrorists have destroyed several months of work,
experts predict it can still open for business before the end of 2184.

----------------------------------Borr----------------------------------------

Borr is a huge hydrogen-helium gas giant with over 90 moons. Its striking
coloration is caused by the light of ionized hydrogen filtering through an
upper cloud deck of sodium. The source of the ionization has not yet been
confirmed, but Borr's mass (equal to six Jupiters) and high temperature
suggest it may be a small "brown dwarf", a large gas giant that gained
nearly enough mass to ignite into a small star.

Through Borr's deep gravity well makes mining operations difficult, it is
the only gas giant in the system. The hydrogen needed for the local fuel
cell industry, combined with the ever-present need for helium-3 fusion torch
fuel, make it economical to mine.

Tyr is compositionally quite similar to Earth. However, it lies over 4 AU from
Asgard, and possesses an atmosphere primarily composed of nitrogen and ethane.
While a potential target for terraforming, the presence of the 'shirt sleeves'
habitable Terra Nova relegated Tyr to a support role.

Nearly a hundred corporations - human and alien - have constructed extensive
teleoperated mining, refining, and manufacturing facilities across the face of
Tyr. Combined with the platinum lodes of Terra Nova, the resources they produce
are driving development of the local hydrogen fuel cell industries. The Asgard
system now supplies nearly 4% of the galactic market.

----------------------------------Loki---------------------------------------

Loki is a small terrestrial world with little to recommend it. One hemisphere
is largely covered by an ice cap, and the other by craggy basaltic highlands.
The rough, varied terrain suggests an ancient cataclysm caused significant
damage to the planet. This is seemingly reinforced by its unusually elliptical
orbit, which reaches 6.5 AU at perigee and 7.1 AU at apogee.

Penetrating scans of Loki's ice cap reveal a network of crisscrossing
subterranean tunnels. Because some of the tunnels were surprisingly regular
in shape and size, early expeditions looked for signs of excavation. It was
concluded they formed by natural processes.

Loki's thin atmosphere is mostly composed of krypton and xenon. When it
approaches perigee, frozen sulphur trioxides and dioxides can evaporate into
clouds on the hemisphere facing Asgard.

There is a sizeable temperature difference between the side of Antiroprus
facing the energetic blue giant primary and the side facing the cold of deep
space. This variance powers massive cyclonic wind systems. The intense heat
it absorbs from the sun, in addition to its own internal heat engine, causes 
the planet's dark side to radiate faintly in the infrared.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------Ageko-----------------------------------------

During the initial survey of the Anataeus system, only a single fly-by probe
was spared for the small, scorched world of Ageko. It revealed a planet
unusually rich in heavier elements, given its size.

Ageko is a standard terrestrial with a thin atmosphere of krypton and xenon. 
Its crust is mainly composed of magnesium with deposits of cobalt and other
heavy metals. Due to extremely rough, cratered terrain, starships are 
discouraged from landing.

---------------------------------Edmos----------------------------------------

Edmos is a standard hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of methane in its
atmosphere. If Trebin's terraforming is successful, it is expected that a
helium-3 fuel refining facility for the system will be set up here.

Orbital Period: 7.8 Earth Years
Radius: 36,826 km
Day Length: 13.7 Earth Hours

AFTER SURVEY:

GAS DEPOSIT SURVEYED

While scanning the planet Edmos, you detected a large concentration of 
hydrogen.

---------------------------------Ploba----------------------------------------

Ploba is the second, and by far larger, of Anataeus' two gas giants. Active
scans by survey ships have returned tantalizing indications of massive, solid
structures deep within the atmosphere, too regular in pattern to be anything
natural.

Some believe Ploba is a 'Jupiter Brain,' a planet-sized supercomputer. 
Adherents of these theory have fruitlessly beamed signals towards the sunken 
megastructures; hoping to get the machines attention.

Others believe that an ancient spacefaring race disposed of their weapons of 
war by dumping them into the planet. The last attempt to reach and salvage
Ploba's ''Deep Anomalies' went tragically wrong, and ended with a crew of 12
being trapped and crushed in the gas giant's lower atmosphere.

AFTER SURVEY:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

You recovered a strange object orbiting Ploba. Chief Engineer Adams and Tali
tried unsuccessfully to determine its origin. They did find one of Matriarch
Dilinaga's writings stored within.

----------------------------------Trebin--------------------------------------

Trebin is a modest terrestrial world, with an atmosphere of nitrogen and argon.
Its surface is mainly composed of nickel with deposits of silver.

Trebin's environment is relatively mild, but the scarcity of water or similar
enabling substances has prevented the development of any biosphere. ExoGeni
Corp recently performed a test impact of a single water-ice comet into the
surface, the first step of a long-term plan to thicken the atmosphere and
introduce water to the environment.

A survey team is on the surface, monitoring the geological and meteorological 
effects of the test impact. Most of the water released is still in the form
of atmospheric vapor, but thick cloud banks have formed. There is every 
indication that this arid world will soon see it's first rain. The survey 
team's progress has been hampered by frequent mechanical or computer failures 
in their GPS satellites.

Anomaly (Lower): Ancient Debris: 

TURIAN INSIGNIA RECOVERED

There are no signs of any survivors. The pod is empty except for a small
tattered flag marked with the Nimines Colony insignia.

Research Base: A couple of items and medi-gel along with a computer with some
data logs. Nearby you can see an entry to a mining area. Inside you will find
a bunch of Husks.

After they are all dead:

That accounts for all of the ExoGeni survey team. They were converted into
cybernetic 'husks' by devices similar to those used by the geth on Eden Prime.
How they came to be buried on a frontier world so far from geth territory is a
mystery.

There is a Uranium deposit east of the research base.

Debris: A crashed probe that you can salvage items from with some scavengers 
around it.

You an find a Plutonium deposit below the debris more towards the middle of the
map.

Anomaly (Upper): A transmitter tower, you can deactivate it; after you do:

DISCOVERY

This device is transmitting tightbeam signals into geosynchronous orbit. This
disrupts the survey team's GPS satellites, causing them to crash nearby.

----------------------------------Vemal---------------------------------------

Vemal is an enormous terrestrial world of mixed rock and ice with an atmosphere
of methane and ethane. Its frozen surface is mainly composed of calcium with
deposits of iron. Because of noxious surface gases, explorers are warned to use
extreme caution.

---------------------------------Zayarter-------------------------------------

An enigmatic terrestrial planet, Zayarter has a hazy atmosphere of nitrogen
and argon. The surface is scorching hot, and mainly composed of calcium with
deposits of sodium.

Three times in the last century, ships stopping to discharge at Treyarmus
reported geometric patterns of lights on the dark side of Zayarter. Attempts
at further investigation proved fruitless; the lights disappear when ships
approach the inner system.

-----------------------------------Chohe--------------------------------------

Chohe is a terrestrial planet whose surface is mainly composed of aluminum,
with numerous deposits of calcium. Though it has enough mass to retain a dense
atmosphere, Chohe is nearly a vacuum. This lack of atmosphere allows a moderate
average temperature, but the differences between night and day are extreme.

The surface of Chohe's sunward-facing side is usually covered by a haze of
volatiles (mainly water vapor and carbon dioxide), which return to the ground
as frost over the course of the long, cold night.

The Sirta Foundation has established a research outpost on Chohe to investigate
the native subterranean life of Chohe, which shows incredible resilience to
extremes of heat and cold.

"While sifting through this pile of debris, you discovered another of
Matriarch Dilinaga's writings. It's in bad shape, but most of it is still
intact."

"It looks like someone has been living in this place. This small crate held
some stale food and one of Matriach Dilinaga's writings. It's still in fairly
good condition... unlike the food."

"It's not clear who lived here, but it appears to have been abandoned for some
time. The container in the tent held, among other things, one of Matriarch
Dilinaga's writings."

There is a heavy metal deposit between the crashed probe and the underground
complex, near the middle of the two but slightly closer to the underground
complex.

There is a rare element deposit near the center of the mountain to the left
of the abandoned camp.

-----------------------------------Xamarri------------------------------------

Xamarri is a small, airless, cratered terrestrial - a lifeless rock quite
similar to Luna. Its frozen surface is mainly composed of silicates, though
one hemisphere has several "seas" of dark basaltic rock.

----------------------------------Faringor------------------------------------

A large but low density, terrestrial world, Faringor is generally believed
consist mainly of water ice. Occasional upwelling of metals, caused by the
interacting tidal forces of several large moons, suggest the core is small,
but extremely dense.

Faringor has a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and ethane. Its frozen
surface is mainly composed of dark carbon-laced water ice.

Ten years ago, Faringor's grim surface color and dim illumination drew the
cinematographer Risa Uvarsen to film the exterior scenes of "Starless" on
location. Acknowledged as a masterpiece of gothic horror, the sets - well
preserved by the vacuum - bring hundreds of tourists to the backwater
system every year.

----------------------------------Treyarmus-----------------------------------

Treyarmus is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with a strong magnetic field, making
it a popular discharge point for freighters working on the Anansi-Ishtar
shipping route.

It is popular enough, in fact, that quarian ships can often be found loitering
in orbit, selling the freighter crews cheap refreshments, salvage, and odd
craftworks assembled by their children. There are no ships in orbit at present,
however.

-----------------------------------Jartar-------------------------------------

Jartar is a terrestrial world with a trace atmosphere of krypton and xenon. The
surface is hot, and mainly composed of unremarkable silicates. Occasional
deposits of aluminum, magnesium, and other light metals can be found.

Jartar is noted for the discovery of the 'Leviathan of Dis,' the apparent 
corpse of a genetically engineering living starship. The Leviathan was found
in the bottom of a crater by a batarian survey team, and estimated to be
nearly a billion years old. It 'disappeared' after a visit to the system by a
batarian dreadnought twenty years ago.

Since then, the batarians have steadfastly denied that the Leviathan existed at
all - and all the more vociferously when shown recordings of the corpse made
by salarian researchers.

AFTER SURVEY:

LIGHT METAL SURVEYED

While scanning this planet, you detected a large deposit of titanium on a 
nearby moon.

-----------------------------------Klensal------------------------------------

Klensal has a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and ethane. Its first 
geological survey were performed by batarians, and suggested areas of great
mineral wealth. Human mining concerns spent billions of credits hustling to the
distant system and sinking test bores to claim the system for humanity.

But Klensal had only an average level of mineral wealth - valuable, but hardly
worth the rush and expense. Merida Industria, a small Mexican company hoping to
strike it rich in their first extrasolar mining venture, had to file for
bankruptcy protection.

Investigation revealed the batarian crew had deliberately falsified their 
surveys, hoping it would encourage human rivals to invest in a costly 
boondoggle. While unethical, this was not technically illegal, and the
batarian government disavowed the 'personal actions of a few misguided 
patriots.' The planet is still littered with abandoned mining bases, which
are often used as temporary meeting places for criminals.

Orbital Period: 21.4 Earth Years

Points of Interest:

-Syndicate Hideout: There will be some mercenaries outside guarding it, just 
use the Mako's cannon to easily kill them all. After you enter the mine you
will face many more mercenaries and mercenary snipers and a crime boss. After
they are all dead you will either get the message:

CRIME LORD DEFEATED

Helena was right, these guys had quite the operation going. But that's all
going to change. One down... just one more to go.

or...

AFTER SURVEY:

LIGHT METAL SURVEYED

Scans of the asteroid field revealed deposits of lithium.

----------------------------------Gremar--------------------------------------

Gremar is an icy terrestrial with a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and
krypton. Its surface is mainly composed of frozen ammonia with deposits of tin
and other light minerals.

When exposed to sunlight, Gremar's ammonia can melt, forming equatorial seas of
the toxic chemical. This has allowed a profusion of simple fungus and lichens
to evolve in the low-energy environment. A by-product of their metabolism
causes them to glow very faintly. While the light of an individual is
insignificant, large patches seem to reinforce the light of one another, and
are visible from space.

-----------------------------------Raysha-------------------------------------

Raysha is a standard hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of sodium and
ammonia in its atmosphere.

During the brief 'gold rush' to Klensal, a few companies established an 
infrastructural for helium-3 skimming and deuterium mining on Raysha's icy
moons. When Klensal proved to be less wealthy then expected, the facilities 
were stripped for parts and abandoned.

--------------------------------Tunshagon-------------------------------------

Tunshagon is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of chlorine and nitrogen 
in its atmosphere. It has an unusually small number of moons for a gas giant;
a mere 7. This is no doubt due to the star Farinata capturing the majority of
the mass during the nebular collapse that created the system.

----------------------------------Juntauma------------------------------------

Juntauma is a small, broiling terrestrial world. Its tin atmosphere of carbon
dioxide is being steadily 'blown off' by the powerful solar wind from the star
Farinata. The surface is scorching hot, and mainly composed of sulphur with
deposits of copper. Its density is low enough to leave the world tidally locked 
to Farinata.

The Alliance Defense Data Network notes that several ships have been spotted
cruising near Juntauma with transponders turned off. While an Alliance patrol
attempted pursuit of one, the unidentified vessel 'rabbited' to FTL. Its trail
was lost when it obscured its light trace in the confusion of signals along the
Anansi-Ishtar shipping lane.

-------------------------------------Nonuel-----------------------------------

WARNING: Level 1 Heat Hazard

Though it is one of the oldest entries in the star charts, Nonuel has not yet
been fully mapped. It is the largest body in the asteroid belt of the blue star
Plutus, not only large enough to maintain a spherical shape, but also massive
enough to maintain the noxious carbon and sulphur dioxides venting from its
many volcanoes as an atmosphere.

Nonuel is rabidly volcanic, and the source of its great heat is also the source
of its inordinate mass. Nonuel is a "secondary source" of element zero,
coalesced around a large chunk of eezo ejected by a supernova billions of
years ago.

Surface conditions are extremely hazardous. In addition to the thin crust and
numerous magma flows, wide stretches of the landscape are coated with slippery
ash and cinders ejected from the volcanoes.

Presrop is the moon of Klendagon. It is a frigid barren world, with an 
extremely thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and ethane. The crust contains 
plentiful deposits of heavy metals. The Alliance has opened bidding for the 
moon's mineral rights, but exploitation will be complicated by the system's 
proximity to the 'Five Kiloparsec Ring' around the galactic core. The Ring is 
an area of intense star formation, and too dangerous to safely travel.

Presrop's landscape is a nightmare of jagged overlapping ridges and geological
shock zones created by some ancient disaster. This has not deterred a 
generation of illegal 'wildcat miners' from attempting to exploit the moon's 
mineral riches. Unfortunately, many have lost their lives.

composed of tin and aluminum, with wide deserts of dust-fine sand that are
easily stirred by the wind.

Klendagon's most striking feature is, of course, the Great Rift valley that
stretches across the southern hemisphere. What is most fascinating about the
Rift is that it does not appear to be natural. The geological record suggest it
is the result of a 'glancing blow' by a mass accelerator round of unimaginable

nitrogen. Its frozen surface consists largely of light titanium and aluminum
oxides, with deposits of thorium and other heavy metals located in the deep
crust. Amaranthine was named by the human poet Sofia Cabral during her tour
of duty aboard the Alliance surveyor ship Kupe. Under the dim light of the red
dwarf Fortuna, the surface of this world is lit in rich twilight blues and 
purples even at midday.

Orbital Period: 12.0 Earth Years
Radius: 6694 km
Day Length: 59.7 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 1.19 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -178 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 1.16 G

Points of Interest:

-There is an Iridium deposit near where you drop, you should be able to
see it on your radar when you start out on the planet.

-There are also two Rare Earth deposits on the planet.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Anomaly: Ancient Debris which you can recover an artifact from:

TURIAN INSIGNIA RECOVERED

You found an intricate beaded necklace marked with the Galatana Colony
insignia. It appears to be very old.

-Engineering Outpost: The building where you meet Helena Blake after
you kill the other two crime lords. You can then choose to either kill
her and all the others with her or leave her along and leave. If you
choose to kill them, after she along with all of the mercenaries are
dead you will get this message:

Helena Blake lies on the floor, bleeding from her wounds. She looks to
you with a rye, respectful smile, and opens her mouth to speak... but
only blood comes out. A moment later, she's gone.

Your work here is done.

---------------------------------Wentania-------------------------------------

Hard data on Wentania is very limited. When the system was charted by the
Alliance surveyor Kupe, only a small, unmanned probe was spared for the
distant world. It is a small rock and ice planet, with a trace atmosphere of
krypton and sulphur dioxide. Normandy's more detailed survey suggests the
frozen terrestrial may be a suitable target for mining. While it is largely
water ice, mapping of mass concentrations suggests it has a core of pure
aluminum.

Orbital Period: 82.2 Earth Years

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------Svarog--------------------------------------

Svarog is a small but typical hydrogen and helium gas giant whose orbit is
quite close to the star. It is unusually for a star with a close-orbiting giant
to have a habitable world. Svarog is Pax's only gas giant, but its temperature,
powerful winds, and high orbital velocity make it a poor candidate for helium-3
mining. While Noveria enjoys plentiful deuterium for its fusion plants, it 
imports all of its helium-3 from out-system.

Orbital Period: 0.2 Earth Years
Radius: 32,285 km
Day Length: 13.4 Earth Hours

----------------------------------Noveria-------------------------------------

Noveria is a small, frozen terrestrial world, barely habitable by conventional
definitions. It is privately chartered by the Noveria Development Corporation,
who lease out labs to perform research too dangerous or controversial to be
performed elsewhere. Given Noveria's unique situation, it is the source of
many wild conspiracy theories.

----------------------------------Morana--------------------------------------

Morana is an icy planetoid smaller than Earth's moon. Many planetary geologists
suspect is was once an Oort cloud 'ice dwarf' which migrated inwards after an
encounter with some other body. While the curst is frozen water ice, deeper
layers are mostly silicates, with pockets of magnesium and aluminum. Morana
is tidally locked to Pax; the same side always faces the sun.

Tungel is a massive terrestrial world, nearly twice the size of Earth, with a
dense atmosphere of nitrogen and ethane. Its scorching hot surface is mainly 
composed of iron, with extensive deposits of heavy metals and radioactives. It
is a mineralogical treasure trove, and many corporations are lobbying for
mining rights.

Orbital Period: 85.8 Earth Years
Radius: 11,539 km
Day Length: 42.2 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 2.0 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 242 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 1.9 G

------------------------------------Matol-------------------------------------

Several attempts to chart Matol have been made, but none have been successful.
By normal standards a small rock planet, Matol has a dense atmosphere composed
of carbon dioxide and argon, with a surprising amount of water vapor. Fogs and 
rain are common on the barren, lifeless surface.

Matol is pleasant enough to be considered a terraforming prospect, though its 
low mass and the high radiation of the energetic blue star Herschel place it 
fairly far down the list.

The Fedele is a Kowloon class modular conveyor of human design. In addition to
the standard cargo bay, the hull has several biological research modules 
attached.

Registry: Private Owner, Dr. R. Heart

Things of Interest:

After you board it you will encounter several "Test Subject" enemies. They seem
to almost be like the Thorian Creepers. After they are all dead in the main room
you can head through to the next hallway. Through the right door is Doctor
Saleon.

After you talk to and kill the doctor you will get a message:

Saleon's medical equipment is stained with the blood of many species. Pale blue,
violet, orange... and more than a few dark red. But his work has ended here.
Time to head back to Normandy.

                             ~~Newton System~~
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------Ontarom--------------------------------------

Though Ontarom's surface is uncomfortably hot, its nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere
and abundant shallow seas make it an ideal candidate for habitation by most
known species.

Unfortunately, the orbit of the moon of Thonal has been slowly decaying since 
the system coalesced. Its proximity is beginning to have tidal effects, and
its dynamo-like revolution through Ontarom's magnetic field is generating
increasing powerful electrical storms. While some have suggested emplacement
of mass effect drives in an attempt to lighten the moon and correct its orbit, 
the scale of such as project - tens of thousands of drives, costing enough to 
bankrupt the governments of all the Citadel races - make it a pipe dream. A
multi-racial effort is underway to catalogue and preserve the unique genetic
diversity of Ontarom's vibrant young biosphere. ExoGeni Corp. and Heyuan 
Genomics represent the Alliance's share of the effort.

Orbital Period: 1.2 Earth Years

Points of Interest:

-Anomaly: A Turian Corpse you can recover an artifact from:

TURIAN INSIGNIA RECOVERED

It's unclear what happened to this turian. He had an ancient paper book
with the Bostra Outpost insignia printed on the cover.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Underground Facility: You will encounter several mercenaries outside of
the facility. After you enter the facility you will encounter many more
mercenaries. After they are all dead you can move forward and find a 
soldier pointing a gun at the scientist. You can then talk to him and choose
what you want to do with them.

-There is a palladium deposit to the northeast of the facility.

-There is also another heavy metal deposit on the planet

---------------------------------Klencory-------------------------------------

Klencory is a rock and ice planet with an atmosphere composed of chlorine and 
argon. The frozen surface is mainly composed of potassium with deposits of iron.

Klencory is famously claimed by the eccentric billionaire Kumum Shol. He claims
that a vision of a higher being told him to seek on Klencory the 'lost crypts
of beings of light'. These entities were supposedly created at the dawn of time
to protect organic life from synthetic 'machine devils.'

Shol has been excavating on Klencory's toxic surface for nearly two decades, at
great expense. No government has valued the world enough to evict his small
army of mercenaries.

Orbital Period: 20.6 Earth Years
Radius: 7677 km
Day Length: 18.3 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 1.01 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -109 Celsius

AFTER SURVEY:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

Scans of the planet Klencory revealed a cockpit of a volus trading vessel. There
are no signs of the rest of the ship, but the salvage team did discover one
of Matriarch Dilinaga's writings in the ship's system.

------------------------------------Juncro------------------------------------

Juncro is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with traces of chlorine and sodium in its
upper atmosphere. Like Uranus in the Sol System, it is 'tipped on its side,' its
north pole facing the star Newton.

AFTER SURVEY:

GAS DEPOSIT SURVEYED

This gas giant appears to have a large concentration of hydrogen.

-----------------------------------Sesmose------------------------------------

Sesmose is an ice dwarf world, its surface is composed almost entirely of frozen
water. Normally a planetoid this small would not rate inclusion on the system's
charts, but Sesmose's unusually large and beautiful ring of ice crystals has
made it a popular subject for visual artists.

The ring is a result of a glancing equatorial impact, which left a large 
'trench,' and threw a great deal of melted water into the atmosphere. The rings
are a temporarily feature that will completely decay in a few thousand years.

Alliance Training Ground: Part of the UNC: Rouge AI mission. The training ground
has been taken over by a Rouge AI as the name suggests. You will have to destroy
the turrets, I suggest using the Mako's cannon. After that you can enter each
one of the three areas where the turrets used to be and destroy all of the
drones and destroy the 8 VI nodes in each of the three bases. After you do this
you will get a message saying:

-----------------------------------Clotanca-----------------------------------

Clotanca is a large but low-density terrestrial world with an atmosphere of
nitrogen and carbon monoxide. Its crust is composed of sulphur and unremarkable
silicates. Occasional deposits of heavy metals, usually the result of meteor 
strikes, dot the surface.

High-speed winds, powered by the hot blue star Caspian, present a constant 
hazard. Atmospheric entry is hazardous, and EVAs are discouraged.

------------------------------------Farnuri-----------------------------------

Farnuri has a trace atmosphere of carbon dioxide and helium. The surface is
mainly composed of silica laced with iron oxides, indicating the world had an
oxygenated atmosphere at some time in the past. Given the relative youth of the
blue star Caspian and the significant gravity well of Farnuri, this must have
occurred with astonishing swiftness, perhaps a result of some cataclysmic event.
Further research is required.

Scans from orbit have detected a large deposit of gold.

----------------------------------Almarcrux-----------------------------------

Almarcrux has an atmosphere of methane and ethane. Despite its great distance
from Caspian, the energetic young star heats the surface to almost temperate
levels. Thick ground fogs are common at the terminator, where water ice frozen
during the long dark side night meets the warm air masses from the day side.

Almarcrux's abundant water and relatively mild temperature and gravity have
placed it on the short list of terraforming candidate worlds. However, there is
significant opposition from ec-ethics groups, who assert that Almarcrux's
primitive methanotrophic bacteria may be the precursor to a full-fledged 
native ecology.

Antida is a standard hydrogen-helium gas giant. Its atmosphere is darkned by
traces of sodium. It is one of relatively few planets known with an orbital
period of a millennium.

Orbital Period: 1296.1 Earth Years
Radius: 29,657 km

------------------------------------Inti--------------------------------------

Inti is a terrestrial planet with an atmosphere composed of ammonia and helium.
Its surface is mainly composed of sodium oxide with deposits of magnesium. Its
density is rather low, leaving the planet tide-locked to Matano.

Inti is an unremarkable world, drawling little more than a cursory scan for
surface pirate anchorages when Alliance patrols enter the system.

Orbital Period: 0.6 Earth Years

Day Length: 0.6 Earth Years
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.56 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 157 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.99 G

------------------------------------Chasca------------------------------------

Chasca is a large but low-density world, fundamentally similar to its inner
neighbor Inti. Like Inti, Chasca is tidally-locked to Matano. The same side
always faces the sun, resulting in a scorching day side and a frozen night
side. In the temperate areas around the terminator, temperatures average around
30 Celsius. Combined with a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, this slender band of
habitable terrain allows limited colonization by humans.

Chasca's ring is unique. It appears to be, for lack of a better term, a massive
piece of alien 'installation art.' The rings are made of small pieces of 
synthetic material, and are almost invisible from space. From the ground, they
catch and scatter the light of Matano in picturesque ways. It is now known who 
created the ring, or when.

Chasca is very early development, with little more than a few pioneer teams
scattered across the surface. Information is being collated about native 
hazards and ecology, while a massive colonist recruiting drive is gearing up
back on Earth.

the building you will find a terminal, access it and:

A colonial pioneer team rarely consists of more than a few dozen specialists.
It's clear that none of them survived. The Cerberus group has a lot to answer
for here.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-Anomaly: A strange pyramid with a little camp set up outside. You can
salvage a few items. You can also recover an artifact from the crate:

PROTHEAN DATA DISC RECOVERED

There are several small Prothean artifacts in the crate, including an intact
Prothean data disc. It appears to be in excellent condition.

below it there is a palladium deposit.


---------------------------------Metallic Asteroid----------------------------

A metal-rich asteroid.

Radius: 47km

AFTER SURVEY:

HEAVY METAL SURVEYED

While scanning this asteroid field in the Herschel system, you discovered a
large deposit of platinum.

----------------------------------------Apo-----------------------------------

A craggy world of igneous and basaltic mountains, Apo is wracked by constant 
geologic activity. While volcanic hotspots are rare, continental plates are
constantly piling up new mountains, subducting old ones, or causing slips 
along transform faults.

Apo has a dense atmosphere composed of nitrogen and carbon monoxide. Due to
constant earthquakes and landslide activity surface exploration is not advised.
The rubble-covered wrecks of a half-dozen expeditionary ships stand in mute
testament to the planet's instability.

Orbital Period: 29.7 Earth Years
Radius: 6843 km
Day Length: 56.7 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 1.2 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -116 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 1.1 G

---------------------------------------Illapa---------------------------------

Illapa is a hydrogen-helium gas giant with an unusual ruby color caused by
contaminants in the atmosphere. The world has over 120 moons, one of the 
highest totals of all known systems.

Once full development of Chasca colony begins, a helium-3 refining 
infrastructure will be developed in the Illapa system, concentrated on the 
large ice moon of Coniraya.

Orbital Period: 74.1 Earth Years
Radius: 72,820 km

-----------------------------------Rocky Asteroid-----------------------------

This asteroid has an unusually sculpted and artistic appearance, with many
long, sweeping curves.

Radius: 34 km

AFTER SURVEY:

PROTHEAN DATA DISC RECOVERED

While scanning the asteroid field in the Matano system, you discovered a badly
damaged ship. The recon team found no survivors on board but they did find a
Prothean Data Disk.

--------------------------------------Supay-----------------------------------

Supay has the composition of an ice dwarf planet but is unusually large for
such a body. It has a trace atmosphere of krypton and xenon. The frozen surface
is dotted with deposits composed of potassium and light metals, brought to the
surface by a cryovolcanic process.

Supay's icy surface was often used a a source of potable water by passing 
merchant vessels. Since the Alliance claimed the inner system world of Chasca,
satellites placed in orbit automatically bill any vessel landing on the world 
for the mass of water removed from the surface.

ExoGeni had a difficult time keeping these satellites operational; they often
meet with 'accidents' caused by impact with jettisoned ship debris.

Orbital Period: 275.5 Earth Years

-----------------------------------Clomarthu----------------------------------

Clomarthu has a reducing atmosphere of methane and nitrogen. The surface is hot,
and mainly composed of sodium with deposits of uranium. In terms of size and 
orbit, Clomarthu is a virtual twin of Earth, but utterly lacks life.

Orbital Period: 1 Earth Years
Radius: 6028 km
Day Length: 18.8 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.9 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 95 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.9 G

------------------------------------Nodacrux----------------------------------

Nodacrux is a verdant world, with abundant water, temperate climate, a thick
nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, and a rich ecosystem. It would seem to be perfect
for life. The relatively high percentage of oxygen makes humans feel energized
and alive, though it has also allowed insect analogues to grow to frightful
sizes.

Unfortunately, Nodacrux is a case of 'almost, not quite.' Thunderstorms are as
common as on Earth, but in Nodacrux's thicker, oxygen-rich atmosphere, they are
deafening and spark constant wildfires. More damning, however, are the large
and ubiquitous tufts of pollen that float on the high-pressure air. In humans
and other oxygen-breathing species, they cause severe or lethal allergic
reactions.

Orbital Period: 3.6 Earth Years
Radius: 5988 km
Day Length: 22.2 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 2.63 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 23 Celsius

Points of Interest:

-Anomaly: Ancient Debris which you can recover an artifact from:

TURIAN INSIGNIA RECOVERED

This escape pod is half-buried in material that has washed down from the
mountains. Though it has obviously been here for centuries, the computer still
has power. Linking in with your hardsuit, you recover a batch of files 
containing data on the Thracia Colony.

-Debris: A group of strange cow-like animals. It gives you the option to talk
to them but it doesn't do anything when you click it. There is also a crashed
probe you can salvage items from.

-Science Facility: You will encounter some Thorian Creepers on the outside.
The inside is also full of Creepers. After they are all dead you can find
some survivors in the far room. You can choose to fight and kill them or 
accept her bribe. If you kill them after they are dead:

"ExoGeni's second-rate mercs proved no match for a trained Alliance marine. With
the last of the science crew dead, there's no reason to linger here"

-Towards the west of where you drop you will encounter some Thorian creepers
along with a crashed ship. A little further west will be some more creepers
and a small building with stuff you can salvage items from.

-A little further west forwards the edge of the map you will find a Gold deposit

-There is a Cobalt deposit in the lower middle of the map in the mountains.

The geological properties of Alko have been scanned from orbit, but little else
it known about it. A fairly typical mix outer system terrestrial of rock and 
ice, Alko has a trace atmosphere of krypton and xenon. Its crust is composed of
silicates and water ice with deposits of aluminum. Unregistered starship
traffic has been recorded in the vicinity of this planet. Travel is nto advised.

A rather small hydrogen-helium gas giant, Pataiton's atmosphere contains large
quantities of chlorine.

Orbital Period: 110.2 Earth Years
Radius: 16,622 km
Day Length: 18.6 Earth Hours

AFTER SURVEY:

MATRIARCH'S WRITINGS RECOVERED

Scans of Pataiton revealed a strange unmanned vessel in orbit around the
planet. Tali brought it on board and determined it was asari-made, but
very old. She discovered several ancient artifacts inside the vessel,
including one of Matriarch Dilinaga's writings.

Agetoton has a pressure-cooker atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide and 
ethane. Its scorching hot surface is mainly composed of sulphur with deposits
of gold. Surface gravity is comfortable at 1.0 standard G's.

There are several areas of debris that may be the wreckage of downed Prothean 
areostat colonies. Based on the size of the debris fields, a population of over
100,000 was likely.

Day Length: 53.5 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 84.30 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 510 Celsius

-------------------------------------Ilos-------------------------------------

In the golden age of the Protheans, Ilos was a verdant world, dotted with the
spires and arches of magnificent cities. Even casual observation shows this is
no longer the case. Ilos has been devastated by means unknown, its entire
surface changed to the color of rust. The atmosphere shows heightened levels
of oxygen.

Wildfires, presumably ignited by lightning strikes, can be seen burning on the
dark side. This indicates that most - if not all - respirating animal life
forms have died off. Surface gravity is a comfortable 1.17 standard G's.

Orbital Period: 261 Earth Days
Radius: 8607 km
Day Length: 54.5 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 11.26 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 38 Celsius

-------------------------------------Zafe-------------------------------------

Zafe is a relatively small hydrogen and helium gas giant. There are several 
tenuous belts of debris in equatorial orbit. Spectral analysis of the material
suggests artificial origin, perhaps the remains of stations that once mined
Zafe for helium-3.

Jarfor is a close-orbiting 'hot Jupiter' hydrogen-helium gas giant with clouds
of airborne silicate and deeper layers of sodium. In composition, it is
extraordinary similar to 51 Pegasi's planet Bellerophon Jone (one of the first
extrasolar planets discovered by humanity in the late 20th century).

Despite its great size, Jarfor is actually rather low-mass; the incredible
heat of the star Hoc has caused its atmosphere to expand. In fact, Jarfor is
so low-mass, it is tidally locked to Hoc. The temperature difference between
the sunward 'hot pole' and the dark side 'cold pole' creates constant 
hurricane-force winds.

Orbital Period: 1.3 Earth Years
Radius: 63,169 km
Day Length: 1.3 Earth Years

------------------------------------Nemata------------------------------------

Nemata is a terrestrial planet with a thick, hazy atmosphere of ammonia, 
methane, and a cocktail of other hydrocarbon gasses. The surface is scorching 
hot, and mainly composed of nickel with deposits of iron.

With a density 1.4 times that of Earth, it is obvious that Nemata is rich
with heavier elements. Mining could be extremely profitable, though the
lethal heat and high gravity would make initial development costly. Given
the political instability of the nearby Terminus Systems, investment is
unlikely.

Orbital Period: 3.5 Earth Years
Radius: 7318 km 
Day Length: 70.4 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 1.6 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 168 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 1.4 G

------------------------------------Virmire-----------------------------------

Virmire is a lush frontier world, ideal for colonization by carbon-based 
species. Its vast seas and orbital position on the inner life zone have created
a wide equatorial band of humid, tropical terrain. Unfortunately, the political
instability of the nearby Terminus Systems has impeded colonization efforts -
the high risk of raids by pirates and slavers makes it an unappealing 
homestead.

Orbital Period: 9.2 Earth Years

Day Length: 13.4 Earth Years

-----------------------------------Prescyla-----------------------------------

Prescya is a terrestrial world so small, it cannot retain even a trace
atmosphere. The surface is frozen, and composed of magnesium silicates with
carbonaceous deposits.

In the recent past, a pirate band from the Terminus System carved a message
into the surface using ship-based laser weapons. In hundred-meter-wide batarian
syllabic, the message proclaims the military prowess and virility of one 
'Captain Zaysh'. A small postscript alludes to the questionable parentage of 
all humans.

--------------------------------Altahe----------------------------------------

Altahe is an exceptional form of planet called a Roche World. Put simply, it is
one half of a pair of small and unusually dense terrestrial worlds (Altahe and
Ontahe) that orbit each other so closely, they effectively share a single
atmosphere. This is does not mean that one could fly from one to the other, but
both have identical atmospheres, and dust from one often can be found on the
other.

Both worlds share an atmosphere of nitrogen and ethane. The surface is warm, and
mainly composed of silica dust and dark basaltic rocks, with extensive deposits
of heavy metals and radioactives. Tidal effects from Ontahe create constant
heavy wind.

----------------------------------Nepmos--------------------------------------

Neomost is a resource-rich terrestrial world somewhat larger than Earth, with a 
dense atmosphere of sulphur dioxide and argon. Nepmos' crust is very thin and
unstable, not more then 8 kilometers deep in any location. Subsurface magma
flows are a hazard to ground travel, and earthquakes are frequent. While heavy
metals and radioactives are plentiful, this geological instability has deterred
investment by mining concerns.

An additional complication is that the Styx Cluster lies uncomfortably close
to the 'Five Kiloparsec Ring' around the galactic core. The Ring contains a
great deal of molecular hydrogen, fueling the majority of the galaxy's star
formation. This area is too dangerous to safely travel.

Points of Interest:

-Anomaly (Right): A buried safebox:

MEDALLION RECOVERED

One of the miners had a League of One medallion. It's possible he discovered
it while they were digging, but there's no way to know for certain.

-Anomaly (Left): A abandoned camp, you will get a message when you go to it:

DISCOVERY

It appears these particle bores were shut down after breaking through into
tunnels below the surface.

The shacks are equipment are stenciled with the logo of the Tenkarra Mining
Consortium, but there is no trace of the mining crew.

-There is an uranium deposit near the left most Anomaly.

-Debris: A crashed probe you can salvage items from.

-There is a palladium deposit near the listening post.

-There is also a light metal deposit on the planet.

-Listening Post: At the listening post you will encounter several rachni
soldiers. Once you kill a few of them a timer will appear on the screan 
telling the time until the swarm arrives. You can talk to the soldier about
the situation and then go to the generator. When you access it you get a
message:

The generator has been ripped apart by rachni claws, leaving the defensive
turrets inoperative. It would be possible to power the turrets off the Mako's
engine - but this would make it impossible to drive or fire the Mako's own
weapons.

After you finish off the first wave another 1 minute countdown will appear.

After this wave is defeated you can talk to the liutenant again and you
will get new coordinates to the underground area the Rachni are coming 
from and hear about another listening post which went dead 3 days ago.

-Rachni Infested Mine: You will get the coordinates for this after you
defeat all the rachni at the listening post. As you move through the
mine you will encounter some Rachni soldiers. After you kill all of
them in the main room you can head down through the tunnel on the left
wall. Once you kill the Rachni Soldiers in there a Rachni Brood Warrior
will appear. After it is dead you can go and head down the other tunnel.
In this one you will find some more warriors to kill. Again, a Brood 
Warrior will come out. Once it is dead you will get a message:

Records of the Rachni War suggest brood warriors - the male-gendered
rachni - only fight when a hive is severely pressed. It's safe to say
you've eliminated the rachni on Nepmos.

Quaji is a terrestrial planet with an atmosphere of methane and ethane. The
surface is composed of silica with deposits of uranium and heavy metals. Clouds
of small water ice crystals are common. Quaji's skies are full of fine silica 
dust. From the surface, the sky has a pronounced salmon hue.

The cursory initial scans from the Alliance surveyor ship Ibn Battuta showed
geometric patterns in the northern hemisphere deserts, visible only in the
ultraviolet band. Normandy's sensors see nothing of the kind.

Day Length: 9.2 Earth Days

AFTER SURVEY:

PROTHEAN DATA DISK RECOVERED

Scans of the planet Weremani turned up a few odd readings. Chief Engineer Adams
fine-tuned the scans and discovered an automated repair drone in orbit. Tali
and Adams brought the drone on board to dismantle it and found a Prothean data
disc in its core.

----------------------------------Chofen--------------------------------------

Chofen is an usually small hydrogen-helium gas giant, with traces of sulphur
and hydrocarbons in the atmosphere. The Alliance surveyor ship Ibn Battuto 
reported inconclusive evidence of hydrocarbon life in the deeper layers of
the atmosphere (over 1000 kilometers below the cloud tops), were pressure
compresses Chofen's hydrogen into a liquid state.

Proof of life in this environment would prove many long-standing theories.
Unfortunately, only a probe with extremely expensive mass effect generators
could survive the crushing pressure long enough to send back useful data - and
the probe would be lost in the attempt. Simple expense makes investigation 
doubtful.

---------------------------------Derneuca-------------------------------------

Derneuca is an enormous terrestrial world, nearly twice the size of Earth. Its
environment is similar to Mars; arid, and a mix of craggy basalt highlands and
sand-scoured deserts of iron-laced silicate dust.

Derneuca's atmosphere mainly consists of carbon dioxide and argon, but the
planet's mass is great enough that a measurable amounts of helium, and even
molecular hydrogen, remain trapped in its atmosphere.

The planet's gravity well it deep enough that it has collected nearly a dozen

dioxide and krypton. Its surface is mainly composed of sodium with deposits
of magnesium.

Aside from displays of geologic beauty (including many spectacular volcanoes),
this barren world is of little interest. Entries relating to Nepheron in the
astronomical database are sparse. 

Orbital Period: 0.8 Earth Years
Radius: 6,865 km
Day Length: 56.2 Earth Years
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.73 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 37 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.88 G

Points of Interest:

*Underground facility: Part of the UNC: Hades' Dogs assignment

*Crashed Probe: Salvageable though it requires Advanced Electronics

*Mummified salarian: To the north west of the underground facility:

MEDALLION RECOVERED

"This Cerberus soldier had an identification tag for Captain Varsinth, one
of the salarian soldiers responsible for capturing the League of One. It's
unclear how he came into possession of this relic."

*There is a salvageable shack and a thresher maw in the valley to the west of
the mummified salarian and the underground facility.

Note:

*There is a Thorium (Rare Element) Deposit to the north west in the valley
where you land on the planet.

*There is a Platinum (Heavy Metal) Deposit to the east center of the map.

*There is a Beryllium (Light Metal) Deposit in the valley to the east of the
crashed probe.

----------------------------------Ontaheter-----------------------------------

Ontaheter is an unusually large ice world, with a core of silicate rock and
light metals, and a trace atmosphere of krypton and xenon. The crust is mainly
composed of water ice. Ontaheter's ice sheets show obvious signs of large scale
fracture and refreezing, centered on a massive crater near the south pole.

A recent extranet meme suggests that a Prothean ship crashed through the crust
of the planet before the collapse of their empire, and might still be recovered
from the planetary core. This is purportedly the source of the planet's
unusually high mass. Careful mapping of the planet's gravity field by orbiting
satellites have proved that the planetary core is entirely normal. 

Orbital Period: 5.2 Earth Years
Radius: 3,718 km
Day Length: 56.3 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.06 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -124 Celsius

LIGHT METAL SURVEYED (Samarium)

------------------------------------Gromar------------------------------------

Gromar is a rocky, terrestrial world with a trace atmosphere of krypton and
xenon. The frozen surface is mainly composed of copper with deposits of
calcium.

Prior to the Alliance's expansion into the Voyager Cluster, Gromar hosted half
of a turian interferometric telescope array. Connected with similar telescope
in the Attican Beta cluster by an expensive chain of FTL comm buoys, the two
functioned as a virtual "lens" with an effective aperture equal to the
thousands of light years between them. The turians used this to map the
Terminus Systems with great accuracy.

Orbital Period: 115.6 Earth Years
Radius: 4,911 km
Day Length: 30.3 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.13 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -218 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.28 G

AFTER SURVEY:

MEDALLION RECOVERED

"Scans of the planet Gromar revealed a derelict space station in late stages
of orbital decay. A small team was able to recover some items of interest.
Among them, a League of One medallion."

Note: This system is unlocked for the UNC: Cerberus assignment.

--------------------------------Renshato--------------------------------------

Renshato is close-orbiting "Hot Jupiter" with traces of sulphur in its
hydrogen-helium atmosphere. The disruptive gravity well of the gas giant
prevented any planets from forming nearby. 

Orbital Period: 0.5 Earth Years
Radius: 25,957 km
Day Length: 18.1 Earth Hours

---------------------------------Binthu---------------------------------------

Binthu has an atmosphere of carbon dioxide, with a permanent haze of toxic
chlorine and clouds of sulphur dioxide that periodically drop torrents of
acidic rain on the surface. Its crust is mainly composed of sulphur with
deposits of calcium.

Like most worlds in the Voyager Cluster, Binthu has only been charted within
the last 20 years by Alliance surveyors. It has no known native ecology.
Data about the world is surprisingly brief and generic, painting a picture
of an unpleasant and uninteresting place. 

Orbital Period: 5 Earth Years
Radius: 5,935 km
Day Length: 53.2 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.91 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: 94 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.94  G

"There are a few children's toys and some ragged clothes stuffed inside
the top of this monument, along with a Prothean data disc."

Note:

*There is a Palladium (Heavy Metal) deposit to the north of the valley you 
start out in.

*There is a Uranium (Rare Element) deposit in the mountains to the south
of the Research Facility to the east.

---------------------------------Dregir---------------------------------------

Dregir is a small, barren rock world with a trace atmosphere of krypton and
xenon. The surface is frigid, and mainly composed of silicates with deposits
of magnesium, aluminum, and other light metals. Dregir has a weak magnetic
field, making it unsuitable for drive discharge operations. 

Orbital Period: 23.7 Earth Years
Radius: 2,843 km
Day Length: 34.0 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.00 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -96 Celsius

---------------------------------Alrumter-------------------------------------

Alrumter is a small, rocky terrestrial planet with a trace atmosphere of
nitrogen and krypton. Its frigid surface is mainly composed of light metals
with deposits of frozen ammonia.

Orbital Period: 35.2 Earth Years
Radius: 3,718 km
Day Length: 39.5 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.00 Earth Atmospheres
Surface Temperature: -96 Celsius
Surface Gravity: 0.39 G

AFTER SURVEY:

PROTHEAN DATA DISC RECOVERED

"You detected a weak signal coming from the far side of the planet Alrumter.
Joker brought the Normandy around and your salvage team picked up a small
escape pod trapped in orbit. There was a long-dead turian inside along with
a few personal items and a Prothean data disc."

---------------------------------Patajiri-------------------------------------

Patajiri has a thin atmosphere composed of neon and chlorine. Its frozen
surface is mainly composed of silica with deposits of copper. During the
long, cold night, the chlorine in the atmosphere falls to the ground in
the form of frost.

Orbital Period: 123.6 Earth Years
Radius: 7,304 km
Day Length: 57.7 Earth Hours
Atmospheric Pressure: 0.42 Earth Atmospheres
