Kon is a star system in Federation space. Its single inhabited planet, Tidal is a major source of water for many systems in the galaxy.

System Edit

Kon is located at a dead-end, with its only connection to the galaxy through Fomalhaut. Kon's hypergate, HG-Kon, remains destroyed. Traffic is light, mainly consisting of water-carrying freighters (including a few Auroran ones), with occasional Federation patrols. Access to the hypergate system is through Fomalhaut to Tichel, a total of two standard jumps.

Tidal Edit

Tidal surface

The pristine surface of Tidal is one attraction for the growing tourism industry here.

Tidal is the only port in the system and is located near system center. As one of the galaxy's best sources of water, Tidal is assured a steady stream of revenue as planets as far away as Dani in the Auroran Empire contract with it for a supply of the life-sustaining liquid. Otherwise lacking a significant economic force, most Tidal residents work in the water export industry. Self-sustaining food sources are maintained through aquaculture, though food imports for non-seafood continue, while Tidal-grown fish and other foods find markets on other worlds. To maintain their lifeblood--a steady supply of clean water--the planet has been kept in relatively pristine condition, giving rise recently to a new growth area: tourism.

Port services Edit

Services provided include a bar, mission BBS, trade center, and recharger. Tidal's trade is almost entirely centered on water, but a few other items are traded here as well.
