    Star System Description

      The Star System
      ---------------
       
       The system containing 871-438 consists of a remarkably stable main
       sequence G1 star, the barren dust ball is in the third orbit. There
       are two asteroid belts in orbits four and six. In addition, there is a
       pair of gas giants: a small one in the seventh orbit and a large one
       in the ninth. The system's Oort cloud contains the usual hundred
       billion or so comets.
       
       The two asteroid belts mostly consist of small bodies up to a maximum
       diameter of ten meters (roughly fifty displacement tons). Over eighty
       percent of these bodies are carbonaceous chondrite meteorites. The
       remainder are formed from various different ice compounds. Neither
       belt contains sufficient mineral resources to be of interest to
       belters. The inner belt has a diameter of about 0.1 AU and the outer
       about 1.5 AU.
       
       The small inner gas giant is a dull bluish-green disc composed of
       eighty percent hydrogen and fifteen percent helium. The remaining five
       percent of the giant is composed of the usual heavier gasses: ammonia,
       argon, carbon dioxide, chlorine, fluorine, methane, neon, nitrogen.
       Also detectable in trace concentrations are a multitude of other
       compounds created from these basic gasses as well as some other
       heavier elements, notably sulphur. This planet has three rocky moons
       and two icy moons orbiting, none of which showed any signs deserving
       of further investigation.
       
       The large outer gas giant is your standard whitish-orange giant
       composed primarily of hydrogen. Detectable quantities of ammonia,
       fluorine, helium and nitrogen exist. Notably absent is the presence of
       carbon based gases and compounds. This gas giant has a system of rings
       containing large numbers of very small carbonaceous bodies. Also
       present in orbit are upwards of fifteen natural moons in a variety of
       orbits.
