Tidal Lock

from Vaskania Prime by PatternShift



Vaskania Prime is an eyeball world, tidally locked to a class M star slightly smaller than Earth’s sun. Settled by a robotic fleet, all humans who dwell on the surface or in its orbit were brought to the Vaskania system as embryos and raised there. A narrow, terraformed strip marks the surface, divided by two rivers. The rivers form a boundary between light and burning heat on one side and a vast darkness on the other. The majority of the planet’s surface is in the light or dark and completely sterile. The terraforming process on the strip started hundreds of years earlier, when the fleet first entered the system, but there are signs the planet may have been habitable before.
