  • Setistar VI is a primeval Class M world located within the Setisar system deep within the Setisar Nebula. Its existence, as well as that of its solar system, was unknown to Federation scientists until it was discovered by USS Galileo in late 2389. Slightly smaller in size than Earth, Setisar VI orbits its sun once every 388 days and has an average surface temperature of 12 degrees Celsius. Due to its slightly slower axial rotation, a day on Setisar VI is approximately 30 hours long.

  • The planet has no rings, but has two moons which orbit outside of its Roche limit. Both of these moons are tidal locked, meaning they always display the same face towards the planet (similar to Earth's moon, Luna). Setisar VI has an axial tilt of only 10.8 degrees, which means it only has two seasons: fall and spring. Because of the relatively low tilt, both seasons are mild and the weather across the planet is generally very stable and pleasant...albeit slightly chilly.
