  Kharak Planetary Analysis

  Diameter 7000kilometers

  Circumference 21,991 kilometers

  Density Low

  Age 6.7billion years (approx.)

  Hydrographic % 31

  Population 293,050,000(approx.)

  Kharak is a small, arid world on the inneredge of the habitability zone surrounding its star. This results in anequatorial temperature approaching the boiling point of water with large,complex life only possible in the temperate polar regions. The planet’sadvanced age means that it is well past its era of geological upheaval.

  For the past half-billion years, the mostpowerful shaping force on its surface has been erosion. This has resulted invast, shifting deserts that have buried most of Kharak’s ancient temperatebiomes, and swallowed what was once a complex chain of small seas that girdledthe world until approximately 250 million years ago.

  The sands that cover these once-fertilebasins are particularly treacherous, and the surface can shift hundreds ofmeters in seconds under the right conditions. There are ancient stories ofentire kiithid being wiped out while trying to migrate through this region, andeven the desert-skilled Gaalsien and Manaan give these regions the respect theyare due, and travel only on vital business.

  Kharakid Biology

  Modern-day biologists divide life on Kharakinto two broad categories: Native and Abnormality. Native life includes avariety of plants, animals and biota. Larger life forms include insects, aviansand several marsupial species, the largest being the friendly, knee-highomnivorous haariri. As one passes from the sheltered polar areas and into theopen deserts, the vast majority of native

  lifeforms seek shelter under the sands orride the winds ahead of the massive sandstorms, filtering the dust for microbeswhipped up from the surface.

  In the Abnormality category, there are onlythree lifeforms: ourselves, a few bacterial strains, and the ubiquitous andannoying riiti. In all of Kharak, only ourselves and a small, grain-eating pestshare enough common DNA and skeletal traits to be considered kin. Thus the namefor our biological category. We are clearly separate from the rest of theKharakid biosphere, as we have not found a single ancestor species forourselves or the riiti in the fossil records of the planet, while every otherform of life on Kharak seems to be connected in a great chain of being.

  Kharakid Environment

  While our technology has grown in leaps andbounds over the past hundred years, the greatest hindrance to expanding ourpower and control over this world is its weather. Even on days considered nominal,the only truly clear communication takes place at the poles and at sea, wherethe air is relatively clear. Over the deserts, there is so much staticgenerated by the shifting of sand that radio reception is often marginal atbest.

  Most large storms begin their cycle in thesouthern hemisphere. One-quarter of the surface area of our world is nothingmore than a flat reflective surface, where the low-pressure superheated airrising to the edge of the ionosphere sucks cooler moist air in from the MajiirianOcean. The resulting high-speed heat exchange generates large sandstorms on anearly daily basis.

  For the past 50 years, the rate ofsuperstorms has been increasing. The largest yet recorded covered the entiresouthern hemisphere for thirteen days, and has been cited as a majorcontributor to the loss of the Ifriit Naabal on her expedition and surveymission in 1106.

一、卡拉克

  卡拉克(Kharak)星球分析

  直径:7000公里

  周长:21991公里

  密度:低

  星球年龄:67亿年(大约)

  水文情况: 31%

  人口:2亿9305万(大约)

  干旱的小型星球卡拉克位于星系宜居带的内侧,因此赤道附近的温度接近水的沸点,大型复杂生命体只能在气候温和的极地地区生存。衰老的星球年龄意味着地质大变迁的时代早已结束。

  在过去的5亿年里,改变星球地表形态最主要的因素是侵蚀作用。这导致巨大的移动沙漠掩埋了多数卡拉克的古生物群落,并于大约2亿5千万年前吞噬了一大批小型海洋。

  曾经一度肥沃的盆地现在被沙子所覆盖,格外危险。一旦具备条件,地表可在顷刻之间移动数百米。有不少古老的传说讲述一些基斯(kiithid)试图穿越此地区时,整个都被埋葬了。甚至擅长在沙漠生存的加奥森(Gaalsien)和马南(Manaan)基斯都要对这个地区给予应有的敬意,除非万不得已否则不会涉足。

  卡拉克的生态

  现代生物学家将卡拉克上的生命分为两个宽泛的种类:本土和异常生物。本土生命包括一些动植物和生物区系。大一些的生命形态有昆虫,鸟类以及有袋类动物,最大的一种是性情温和,齐膝高的杂食性动物“haariri”。如果从庇护所一样的极地地区一路走到广阔的沙漠,就会看到大部分本土生物都躲进了沙子里,或者随着巨型沙尘暴带来的强风扶摇直上。

  而在异常生物这一大类当中,只有三种生命形式:我们自己,一些菌株以及讨厌的“riiti”,这种生物无处不在。纵观整个卡拉克,只有这种身材矮小,吃谷物的害虫和我们拥有大量共同的基因,并且骨骼类型也最相近。因此才被冠以“异常生物”这个名字。我们显然和卡拉克生物圈的其他生物界限分明,因为在这个星球的化石当中并没有发现任何古生物作为我们或者“riiti”的祖先,而其他的生物似乎都属于一个整体的进化链条。

  卡拉克的环境

  虽然在过去的几百年当中,科技进步神速,但阻止我们扩张并掌控世界的最大障碍还是天气。就算是天气正常的时候,真正清晰的通讯也只能在极地和海洋地区进行,因为空气相对清新。而在沙漠地区,由于流沙产生的静电太强,无线电接收常常力不从心。

  多数大型风暴形成于南半球。卡拉克地表的四分之一都平整而光滑,低压高热的气体直达电离层边缘,从马吉利安(Majiirian)洋当中吸取寒冷潮湿的空气。由此导致的高速热量交换,几乎每天都会生成巨大的沙漠风暴。

  半个世纪以来,超级风暴出现的几率一直在上升。有记载的最大的一次,风暴覆盖了整个南半球,持续了13天。人们认为这次风暴导致了Ifriit Naabal号母舰在1106年的远征考察任务当中失事。

  附件:环境预测,

  收件人:纳巴-萨(NAABAL-SA)

  根据命令,我和我的家族直系得以对1068年发射的西拉之眼(Siila's Eye)环境监测卫星截获数据进行分析。虽然直到10年后,数据过滤器才启动,但应该足够掩饰真相了。

  现在,我们已经多次检查相关数据,毋庸置疑,吾萨(Sa),卡拉克正在走向末日。

  自从理性时代以来,人们一直认为卡拉克是个充满活力的星球,没人质疑过这件事。可是一旦从太空来看,就会发现一个黑暗的事实,即使是我们也没有做好接受现实的心理准备。沙漠正在全球范围内扩张,比地表观测得出的结论要快十倍。在这样的速度下,三姊妹之海(the Seas of the Three Sisters)将在200年内干涸。紧接着,沙漠会吞噬极地的山脉,我们最后一块耕地也会被掩埋。而灌溉系统倚仗的地下水层也在缩小,比最初的推断要快六倍。

  即使由于对轨道残骸开展了研究,我们在能源和冶金方面取得了长足的进步,最长也不过350年,卡拉克就将无法支持我们物种的生存。我们会继续关注这一情况,利用卫星的帮助,改良模型。赞美您的智慧,因为是您决定了继续提供资助。并且我们会继续听从您智慧的指示,对公众掩饰真相。我们同意,如果将真相告知处于挣扎当中的人民,将会引起一场灾难,在这个时刻,足以引发另一场异端战争(Heresy Wars)。疯狂的加奥森人会利用这场悲剧,宣称这一切,就是我们种族已遭到审判的证据。

  话虽这么说,但纸终究包不住火。我的家族是忠诚的,会遵从吾萨的意志。早在您的祖先重整世界秩序,领导人民在提尔脱颖而出之前,我的家族就已效忠了几个世纪。但是请注意,以目前的速度,过不了多久真相就将无法掩饰。最晚到下个世纪中叶,无可争辩的事实将为世人所知。

  我们只能希望,届时,您拯救人民的计划也将同时为世人所知。

  -克泽尔·纳巴(K`zell Naabal)

  ADDENDUM 12MJ: ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTIONS ,ATTNNAABAL-SA

  As ordered, my immediate family and I wereable to intercept and analyze the initial data returns from the Siila’s Eyegeneration of environmental monitoring satellites launched in 1068. Our datafilter did not engage until late the following decade, but it should besufficient to obscure the trends from which we have drawn our own conclusions.

  We have checked and rechecked the data forfive years now, and there can be little doubt, my Sa. Kharak is dying.

  No one since the Age of Reason would arguethat Kharak is a robust world, but even we were not prepared for the dark truththat was revealed once we were able to view this world from space. The sandsare spreading globally, nearly ten times faster than our surface observationshad suggested. At this rate, the Seas of the Three Sisters will be dry within200 years. Soon after that, the desert will overwhelm the last of the polarmountains, and the last of our arable land will be dust. The natural aquifersour irrigation systems depend upon are also shrinking, over six times fasterthan initial predictions.

  Even with the leaps and bounds in power andmetallurgy that the orbital debris ring has brought us, our best case scenariois that in less than 350 years, Kharak will be unable to support our species.We will continue to monitor the decline and refine our models with the new lineof Eye sats. We bless your wisdom, that you have continued to fund them. And wewill defer to that same wisdom, Naabal-Sa, as we continue to obscure and hidethis data from the general public. We agree that to tell our struggling peoplethat all this progress is moot would be a disaster, at this moment. It might beenough to bring on another age of Heresy Wars. We would not put it past the madGaalsien to use this tragedy as some kind of proof our race has been judged andfound wanting.

  That being said, no secret can stay buriedforever. My family is loyal, and will follow the will of our Sa. We have beentrue for centuries, since long before the day that our people emerged from Tiirunder your Ancestor’s rule, to set this world aright. But please be aware thatthe current rate of decline will become impossible to hide very soon. The truthwill be known and irrefutable to all by the middle of the next century at thelatest.

  We can only hope that by then, your plan tosave our people will be revealed as well.
