Gideon System Schematic
The Menentabe System contains six planets. Orbital distances from the sun are not to scale, but are approximately to a logarithmic scale. Planet sizes are not to relative scale either, though the relative sizes are in the correct size sequence.
Menentabe System Description
The Menentabe System is located at stellar coordinates (-26.059,-8.317,3.138), 27.533 parsecs from Eden near the terminus of the Jonas Reach. The system encircles Ekarkhaton, a class K6-V star with no companions. It was initially reached by fleet elements pursuing renegades based at Dark Harbor in –13. The selection of Menentabe to host the 61st Urban Defense Fleet in 199 encouraged further development, much of which took place on Menentabe’s arid satellite Tukatari.
Today, the planet of Menentabe has become something of a backwater, home to only about one percent of the system’s population. It is now primarily a tourist destination famous for its cruises, beach resorts, and biosculpt clinics. Workers on Hub and Highport, as well as military personnel from Tukatari and the distant orbital yards circling the gas giant Neferkari, expect to receive at least once-yearly vacations “wetside.”
The primary industries in the Menentabe System include civilian and military starship construction, systems, components and maintainence; pelagic farming, corporate finance and operations, UDF military operations and tourism.
System-wide pupulation is about 53.304 million (92.9% human and clone, 4.0% thall, 3.1% other). Major population centers include:
- Hub (station orbiting Menentabe) — 22.54 million
- Highport (station at Menentabe/Tukatari L4 point) — 9.09 million
- Prime Base (on Tukatari) — 5.022 million
- Ramaset (on Tukatari) — 4.42 million
- Abdju (on Tukatari) — 2.38 million
- Unity (station orbiting Tukatari) — 966 thousand
- Idyll (on Menentabe) — 167 thousand
Menentabe System Shipping
The Menentabe System is served by the Mass Conveyor System of interstellar gates. It connects to the Akka Mekadelite System within the Jericho Sector and upwards into the Naqual Sector (Sector 246). Menentabe System is not a major producer of goods, but is a major consumer, and receives goods via the Mass Conveyor System.
