Traveller Tuesdays - Planets of the Etzina Passage


Following after the writeup on Etzina (Ark/0401), the next few planets to be written up in Sphere Fenix, include Nibok (Ark/0302), the frontier world (with its scout base and Marlan Primate embassy) at Baiti (Ark/0202), the farming world of Uaboe (Ark/0601), and airless mining moon of Ewa (Ark/0701).

Here is a map of the space within 6 parsecs of Etzina.  This map has been generated by the Traveller Map website located here.



If just a few other worlds are added - the rich world of Anetan (Ark/0204); the mystic ruins of Nauru (Ark/0206), the famous gardens of Gali (Ark/0306), the naval base at Buada (Ark/0505), and the waterworld of Abricot (Ark/0704) - then the whole Etzina Passage (the nickname for the highly travelled circular shipping round that passes through all of the above listed worlds) would be included.
