Chronos [Qo'nos] Affiliation: Klingon

Class M Location: Alpha- 6:26:12

 	X: 	-71.28
 	Y: 	120.50
 	Z: 	0.00

Gravity: 1.35 G Orbital Speed: 418 km/s Mean Temperature: 20.41� C Population: 9.9 Billion Volume: 1728.0 Mm� Rotational Period: .9:1 (1 day = 22.8 hours)

System: juHHov Parent Star: juHHov

Climate and Atmosphere Nitrogen 77.6% Oxygen 21.3% Argon 0.3% Inert Gasses 4.7% Standard M-Class. Predominantly temperate with tropical zones at the equator, mild variations along the upper and lower latitudes, and average polar regions.


   Chronos is the only planet in the juHHov system. There may have been sister planets orbiting in the vast distances between Chronos and its star, but they would likely have been destroyed long ago. This is because juHHov is a red dwarf-a star that has collapsed after having grown to a red giant. Somehow, Chronos survived. Its topography and geology show no signs that it had once orbited a red giant. In fact, Chronos' surface features show nothing unusual at all.


   A wide variety of life has evolved on this distant planet, including the great Klingon race. Qo'nos (the Klingon name for their home) is a lush world with extensive cities and industrial zones. It is a poor world, however. Only the expansionist, honor-driven nature of the Klingon people prevented them from depleting their mineral resources. Thanks to an abundance of nearby worlds to support their industrial needs, the Klingons have become the most formidable government in the galaxy.
   Today, Qo'nos is a proud and powerful place. It more than reflects the honorable and cultural nature of the Klingon people. Their arduous work has repopulated their barren system, not with planets, but with massive military complexes. And though juHHov is near the end of its life, the Klingon Empire has guaranteed their survival for eternity.


yuQ ngem Affiliation: Klingon

Class M Location: Alpha- 7:21:11

 	X: 	110.32
 	Y: 	-115.89
 	Z: 	0.00

Gravity: 1.24 G Orbital Speed: 518 km/s Mean Temperature: 26.33� C Population: 3.4 Million Volume: 1728.0 Mm� Rotational Period: 1:1 (1 day = 24 hours)

System: Ruwan Parent Star: Ruwan

Climate and Atmosphere Nitrogen 64.0% Oxygen 34.9% Argon 0.9% Inert Gasses 0.2% Tropical. Tropical forest covers seventy percent of the available land. Life form scans detect heavy indigenous life beneath the forest canopies. Aquatic zones contain vast algae beds.


   YuQ ngem is aptly named "forest world" by its Klingon controllers. Discovered early in the history of Klingon exploration, it has long been a favorite hunting location for young warriors. Life forms of every shape and size populate the surface, some of legendary ferocity. A warrior of any skill wishing to test himself against nature could come to this planet and find a suitable challenge in moments, be it a lone hunt or battles between Houses.


   YuQ ngem's primary function in the Empire is agricultural. A large percentage of the supplies used to feed the Empire come from this planet. The farming operations here have been carefully designed not to interfere with the wild surroundings. Some farms lack technology altogether, either out of a desire to conserve funds that are best spent on the military or to be closer to the dangerous natural environment.


Kitomer [Qi'tomer] Affiliation: Klingon

Class M Location: Alpha- 11:23:9

 	X: 	128.29
 	Y: 	-77.74
 	Z: 	0.00

Gravity: 1.01 G Orbital Speed: 418 km/s Mean Temperature: 24.15� C Population: 900,000 Volume: 1728.0 Mm� Rotational Period: 1:1 (1 day = 24 hours)

System: mabHov Parent Star: mabHov

Climate and Atmosphere Nitrogen 78.0% Oxygen 20.9% Argon 0.9% Inert Gasses 0.2% Exceptional climate conditions result from a superb orbital configuration. Tropical zones cover all areas except for the high altitudes and extreme latitudes. Ocean currents are warm, contributing to the higher-than-average precipitation detected along the planet's major landmasses.


   The jungle planet Kitomer (or Qi'tomer, as its Klingon controllers have named it) stands apart from other M-class worlds in two regards. The first distinguishing factor is its plant life. It is rare for a class-M planet to have as much vegetation as Kitomer. Despite some notable climatic extremes, photosynthetic life is everywhere. It covers the highest and lowest altitudes, it is present in the polar regions, and it even covers a large percent of the oceans (though it isn't visible from orbit).


   The second distinguishing factor is wholly political. With the destruction of the Klingon industrial moon Praxis, the Klingon empire faced extinction. It could not support its military campaigns against the United Federation of Planets without the support of the Praxis installations. Ironically, this disaster paved the way to greatness for the Empire. Kitomer was to be the planet where the Klingon Empire would hold diplomatic meetings (the Kitomer accords) and reach an uneasy peace with the United Federation of Planets.
