The Pandora System is approximately 10 light years from Betazed and 45 light years from Sol (Earth), and is located near the edge of the Din'ghes Nebula.
The system consists of four planets orbiting a Class A9V (Light Blue Main Sequence) star.
|Orbit||94.1 million km|
|Atmosphere||High density Carbon Dioxide and some sulfides|
|Surface||Hot and barren, 1000° Celsius average temperature|
There is a sparse asteroid belt between the first and second planet.
Starbase 243 (Valkyrie Station) and Pandora Station orbit this planet, and its beaches are a common destination for the starbase's crew and residents.
The oceans on the planet are deep (up to 10 km), with one particular deep trench, the Poseidon Trench, reaching depths of up to 100 kilometers. A small scientific outpost is located against the edge of the trench at a depth of 90 km, manned by a small team of civilian scientists, mainly marine biologists, but also a couple of archaeologists due to the discovery of a large underwater, and underground, structure a decade ago.
|Orbit||151.2 million km|
|Atmosphere||24.3% Oxygen, 74.8% Nitrogen, 1.4% Argon, trace amounts of Carbon Dioxide|
|Surface||97.2% of the surface is covered in oceans, with temperatures ranging from 25° (above water) to 35° Celsius (above the larger landmasses)|
|Life-forms||Extensive vegetation, aquatic animal life|
|Classification||Class J Gas Giant|
|Orbit||1,219.3 million km|
|Composition||Gaseous Hydrogen and Hydrogen compounds|
|Satellites||One Class F moon, two standard class D moons (and a small ring)|
|Classification||Class F moon|
|Surface||Highly variable temperatures, frequent volcanic activity|
|Orbit||3,210.0 million km|
