On the surface, Snowmelt appears as many other hostile ice-locked worlds around the galaxy do: a few hardy souls surviving by virtue of technology and a stubborn nature upon a frigid surface. However, very unlike other such worlds, under that surface is a teeming urban network of cities and structures. Snowmelt's thick ice coating is also very easy to burrow in and create stable dwellings beneath the surface. Due to the warmest and most habitable temperatures being around the equator, most habitations can be seen dotting the equator of the planet. So much construction has gone on in fact that the planet now supports more than 10 billion souls, only eclipsed within the Federation by Earth itself.

Construction may be easy, but life is dreary within the subterranean world, as surface temperatures rarely even approach freezing, preventing much in the way of outdoor activities. The huge population is fairly disaffected with their lives, and many seek an escape. Neighboring Gem offers the opportunity to earn good money in its mines, although other schemes abound as well. It is unclear however whether this discontent has affected the population's loyalty to the Federation.

Snowmelt is one of the few planets in Federation Space that the player may start a new pilot from.

Trade Center Edit

The trade center on Snowmelt serves the large but not overly affluent population of the planet.
