Planetary Info[edit]

Kochab is unique because though it has a great deal of surface water, it is actually a very dry world. There are two main continents, named Dakkato and Insarria, which formed around a series of mountain chains. The early settlers found that their world's few arable land areas were sited in valleys prone to earthquakes. Therefore they kept their settlements small and the planet's economy was kept at a subsistence level as well. Despite this, they were able to export beef, pork, and common industrial ores. The planetary capital and largest spaceport was located in Stenton, south of the Dakkato Prime mountain range.

Largely ignored, the Lyran Commonwealth didn't invest much money in the system. The early Thirtieth century found the world starring as the home of The Steinharts, a fictional holovid series based loosely on the Steiner family. Produced by the Commonwealth Nationwide Network (CNN), the series ran until 3023 when CNN was purchased by the Donegal Broadcasting Network. DBC put The Steinharts into syndication and terminated new episode production.[1]
