Oso was discovered in 2861 by amateur explorer Errol Navis. Named after his daughter, it features six distinctive worlds orbiting a white Type-F main sequence star. Oso was quickly set upon by survey teams and corporate groups seeking to lay claim to the latest worlds potentially ripe for terraforming. Within the year, interests changed dramatically with the discovery of higher life forms on Oso II.
Oso I - tidally locked world that features one of the most impressive ‘day and night’ differences in the explored galaxy. The planet is best known for its impressive visual display (viewed remotely).
Oso II – home to the most developed primitive species ever encountered by the UEE, known as Osoians. Is a lush biosphere with a variety of distinct regions and climates and boasts an increased gravity much higher than Earth’s. UEE to established off-world research platforms to attempt to study the species from a distance.
Oso III - gas giant that began life as a rogue Jupiter that fell into rotation around the system’s star. The planet is distinguished by slight green and white color variations generated by its silicate clouds.
Oso IV - uninhabited coreless planet which once boasted a surface rich in gems and mineral resources that were likely exposed due to some sort of planetary catastrophe. These resources were very quickly (and quietly) picked clean by rogue mining operations shortly after the system’s initial discovery
Station Chimera - Observation Base Chimera is home to Oso’s rotating military contingent charged with protecting the system from outside interference. While its intention is noble, the effectiveness of that intention has been under fire recently as allegations of negligence caused a Senate inquiry into the daily operations of the base.
Outer Planets - generally uninteresting and have largely been avoided since the initial glut of scientific surveys. Oso V is an ice giant and Oso VI, is a dwarf planet offering little of value.
