Alectrona is a small but somewhat important world. With over 50% of its surface covered with ice, it is theorized that had Alectrona been larger, it could have retained an atmosphere. Regardless, this ice is crucial to this society’s existence.
Although there are several gas giants in the system, none are close enough for effective (ie, inexpensive) starship refueling; as Alectrona lies along a main trade route, its starport sells fuel at a slight premium. The world’s shipyard also does good business performing maintenance; though there are less expensive/more efficient facilities in nearby systems, these can be booked for months, driving business here. The yard managers have attempted to increase their efficiency and reliability, though no improvements have (yet) been noticed by visiting ship captains.
Though there are many worlds in Alectrona’s system, very few other worlds have been settled, or are being surveyed. The system has been noted as being resource poor, with no new surveys showing much in the way of improvement (ie, no hidden deposits have yet been discovered). This has kept developers out of the system, and there are no signs of a turn-around.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 300th hand-generated “System of the Day” entry, using the Traveller5 rules, from Far Future Enterprises. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020.
This system was generated by hand, using Traveller dice and the Traveller5 rules set.
Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns. Permission is granted to publish these results, as long as the copyrights of Far Future Enterprises are not violated, and no money is charged for them.
As always, comments and input are appreciated.
