Climate: Arid terrain with significant ice caps at each pole
Gravity: 1.5 normal gravity
Moons: One (terraformed)
Sapient Species: None Known
Sapient Species: Samsaran
Government: Ara Arcturus Confederation
The Samsaran are mysterious on a good day and cryptic at all other times. Their origins are unknown but they have always inhabited Jolde and offered neutral guidance to their neighbors.
When the solar system was threatened by the Dominion millennia ago the Samsaran organized defenses and guided the Confederation to victory.
To this day ships attempting to enter the solar system must pass through the inhibitor field built by the Samsaran. This same field mutes communication and projects the solar system as empty other than celestial bodies.
