Alak-Taaran (as can be seen from the solar-system diagram) is by far the largest planet in the Frenlan System. Although not capable of supporting life (as we know it), it is mined by Frenlans for its atmospheric hydrogen. Such mining enterprises, usually based on one of the planet's ninety-four moons (known collectively to the Frenlans as the "Tetras"), are lucrative business for those who run them, and in recent years other gasses such as argon, xenon and krypton have been extracted too. Many of the "touristy" moons receive almost as much business as the mining-colonies, thanks to the invention of the Localised Atmosphere Generator (whose function is self-explanatory), and the Gravity Pump, which allows the creation of a gravity field of ...

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.

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.
