The Chahar system is home to at least one habitable world, Chahar II, and as at 3145 was located in the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Chahar system is located near the Blue Hole and Clermont systems[2][3] and consists of a class G0IV primary orbited by at least two planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the system zenith jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

The Chahar system was colonised at some point during or shortly before the Age of War, and was a member of the Lyran Commonwealth by the end of that era.[4][5]

Chahar II - more commonly known simply as Chahar - is the third planet in the system and has a single moon named Yonas.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Chahar was first colonized in the late twenty-fourth century. At that time there was no life on the world, despite a large ocean and compatible biosphere. The colonists created mining settlements and chemical production facilities, but for many years the world had to import its own food which put a strain on the neighboring worlds food production. A program by the Steiner government to import Terran plants and animals was a huge success: In 3025 Chahar produced enough food not only to feed itself but to export to other worlds.[1]

Chahar worked hard to bring corporations to the planet, and by 3025 it had succeeded. Not only is it the home of Dobless Information Services, but Trellshire Heavy Industries built a weapons plant near its capital city.[1]
