Major Cities/Settlements: Sagan-Alpha Settlement


The Garoth IV settlement was founded by a group of Federation
Scientists who firmly believed that the planet's unique mineral
resources could be studied for the advancement of technology.  The
Federation granted the group's wish, and they established the original
pressure dome, the Sagan-Alpha settlement.  The minerals found
relatively near the planet's crust are usually more rare, making the
planet invaluable in studying their uses.  Five years after founding,
the Sagan-pi orbital station was built by the Federation at the request
of the colony to facilitate experimentation with off-planet power cores
using the materials found on the planet.

Economy: Standard Federation Economy

Tech Level: Modern/Slightly Advanced.  Advanced study of power
generation takes place here, so many of the pressure domes are powered
by highly advanced, experimental power systems.

Culture: None, really.  A fairly average Federation Science colony.

Notes: Garoth IV is primarily a research and development colony.
Working with the orbiting station, they have for fifty years been
developing newer methods of generating power that may someday be more
widely implemented.
