The Jhoran System, located
on the edge of United Federation of Planets Territory lies perilously
close to the territory claimed by the Romulan Star Empire. There are
seven planets orbiting this star. Jhoran V, the fifth, is a planet
shrouded in ice. The environment is extremely hostile. Surface
temperature variations range from minus ten to minus sixty degrees
Celsius. The atmosphere is oxygen-nitrogen. Winds vary from twenty to
more than one hundred knots. The surface of this planet is, for all
practical purposes, frozen. Persons needing to complete assignments on
this planet are warned that their continued existence on the surface is
unlikely. All necessary arrangements for a safe, secure and hospitable
environment should be completed prior to shuttling to the surface.
If an accident or other calamity befalls a landing
party while planetside, an emergency habitable sanctuary exists below
the surface of the ocean near the recommended shuttle landing location.
The Senior Starfleet Officer of any landing party is charged with
verifying the location of this life-saving outpost, an abandoned
Rihannsu outpost. This outpost, once used for intelligence gathering, is
located in 600 meters of water. The pressure at that depth could disable
a shuttle so shields and structural integrity fields must be maintained.
Visitors while planetside will need to wear environmental suits. The
outpost consists of a large intelligence control room, medical
facilities, a small mess hall and a shuttle bay.
It is believed that traders have used the old outpost
as the base for their illegal mining operations. Although all surface
scans accomplished by the USS PHOENIX have shown no life form activity
in the vicinity.
Indigenous life does exist on the planet. Some
species of mammals inhabit the surface and aquatic life is plentiful.
Most species are harmless.
