Polities Union of Eteno Socialist States

Beeaulen is a trinary star system claimed by the Union of Eteno Socialist States. It is most well-known for its revered and prestigious educational and research institutions, and as a result, the UESS's most exceptional students and researchers clamor for the opportunity to study or work in Beeaulen.

The system is composed of two binary class K stars, Beeaulen A and B, and an outer red dwarf, Beeaulen C, which orbits the more massive pair. There are two planets in the system, both of which orbit Beeaulen C. Beeaulen C, like many red dwarves, is a flare star. At random intervals, its brightness markedly increases, emitting colossal amounts of X-ray radiation.


Along with Gorodniye, Beeaulen was one of the earliest systems settled by Eteno colonists. Between the prediction of problems arising from the layout of the system's stars and the relative scarcity of planets and moons, few resources were initially dedicated to establishing a presence in the system. More eyes turned to Beeaulen when the Grjd race was discovered, but this attention did not last for long. Innately curious and pacifist and nature, the Grjd integrated rapidly and peacefully into Eteno society, and many left their world to start new lives on Eteno worlds, primarily in the Vaiuts system and the Gorodniye system. The Grjd diaspora merely confirmed Grjdonsk's status as a backwater yet again, until full surveys would reveal its true value.

Slow and unmotivated exploration of Grjdonsk did eventually reveal the presence of an enormous wealth of Omni artifacts, which prompted an explosion of settlement, primarily to support research and excavation ventures both private and public. Since that time, Beeaulen's economy has been dually focused on the study and sale of Omni artifacts (depending on their importance) and higher education.

Planets and features


Marjolein is a super-Earth planet made out of almost entirely of iron. It is tidally locked to its star with one side of scorching plains, and the other of permanent darkness. Conditions are completely unsuitable for life, but that has not stopped limited iron extraction operations from being established on the dark side of the planet.


Main article: Grjdonsk

Grjdonsk is a world that was once covered in vast Omni megacities. Today, nature has reclaimed most of the surface and few ruins remain intact. Grjdonsk is well known for its venerable educational and research institutions, mining, artifacts, and deuterium production. Its star is massive enough to prevent tidal locking on the planet, but Grjdonsk is still vulnerable to Beeaulen C's flares. While Grjdonsk's strong magnetic field is resistant to it, adequate protection by way of a full-body environment suit is required when traveling the planet during the day. The curious and pacifist Grjd hail from Grjdonsk, though only a paltry amount remain. The majority of Grjd have migrated to outer Union colonies or have settled outside of the UESS entirely.

Vaiino Belt

The Vaiino Belt is a unique mineral-rich asteroid belt that orbits around Beealuen C as well as Beeaulen A and B. Between the three stars, the belt combines and then forks. Its width and density suggest that if not for the intervention of mining industries, the Vaiino Belt could've eventually formed a large planet.

Stations, static warships, and artificial structures

Fiulga Station

Multi-purpose UPF station constructed with the facilities to host Beeaulen's small Union Navy garrison. Orbits Beealuen C freely.

Kuev Station

Radboud Special Minerals headquarters for mining operations on Marjolein. Orbits Marjolein.

Krelcharch Supply Base

First space station built in the Beeaulen system. For many years, its population was greater than that of Grjdonsk until the discovery of Omni artifacts triggered an influx of colonists and scholars. Krelcharch Supply Base still houses a limited population of 80,000 supported by light industry and commerce. Orbits Grjdonsk.

Heeramanski Research Station

Independent research facility built to sort and study Omni artifacts from Grjdonsk. Orbits Grjdonsk.

Hytmaven Research Station

High-security government research facility built to study Omni artifacts from Grjdonsk and the system's unique trinary stars. Fully intact pieces of Omni technology are studied exclusively at Hytmaven and are considered state secrets. Orbits Beeaulen C freely.

Gollyamsk Facility

Shipyard and manufacturing facility for special research equipment and vessels. Owned by Union Shipmakers of the Core Worlds. Orbits Grjdonsk.

Marichebsk University

Prestigious xenoarchaeology institute established wholly aboard a space station. Orbits Grjdonsk.

Wasserthal Mining Station

Radboud Special Minerals headquarters for mining operations in the Vaiino Belt. The belt's high yield and relative purity makes Wasserthal Mining Station one of Radboud's most profitable ventures. Orbits Beeaulen A and B freely.

ENS Uthandi

Zamasova-class Union Navy battleship tasked with protecting Hytmaven Research Station and its sensitive research.

Beeaulen Yards

Hidden Scrap Navy base within the Vaiino Belt. The majority of the Navy's research and development occurs here with the help of Omni technology stolen from nearby research centers or archaeological dig sites directly. Orbits Beeaulen A and B freely.

Saatala Naval Station

Hidden headquarters and only base of the Union Navy 88th Far Operating Group located within the Vaiino Belt. No other information is available.
