Skadi’s surface is partially covered by a frozen ocean; the rest is broken tundra except where volcanic fissures have opened up thermal vents, depositing rock and minerals in darker patches on the frozen permafrost planes. A few mountain ranges pierce the permanent ice shelves, some are geologically active. The tidal pull of Skadi's eight moons cause regular seismic activity, resulting in a constantly shifting landscape of fissures, caves and tunnels in the glacial ice-layers. The average planetary daytime temperature is around 4ºC (39.2 ºF); however night-time temperatures get as low as -52ºC (-61.6 ºF). Gale force winds and intense snow and ice storms regularly wrack the windswept surface magnifying the extreme cold of Skadi; eve ...
A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia. Just as Wikipedia allows to edit articles, Galaxiki allows to edit stars, planets and moons. In fact you may consider each object in our science fiction galaxy to be one editable article:
One of the most interesting points is that your work doesn't have to be isolated. In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
