Aek Elakfough – Gvurrdon 0439

The biggest problem with this planet is that has TL-G and a population of zero. In the maps here at the Zhodani Base that uses data from Galactic, the population has been modified to reflect the situation a few years later. But in the original source (AM-3 Vargr) the UWP is:

0439 A000002-G     Lo nIn As   220Va  K8 V  M7 D

Okay, so we got 2 Vargrs running a class A starport at TL-G. That seems a bit unlikely… It might be that they have lots of robots running the starport and the TL-G production facilities. Where did all those TL-G robots come from?

Another idea is that the only thing they produce at their asteroid base is coffee, and that they once visited Darrian and bought an old coffee machine. When the Impie Scouts visited Aek Elakfough they noticed that the only thing produced was coffee from a TL-G coffee machine. So these scouts followed their scout protocol and noted that this was indeed a TL-G world… They also noted that the two Vargrs were engineers and could (if they wanted to) overhaul starships on their asteroid base. Voila, it must be a class A starport…

Another problem with TL-G for Vargrs are that on page 29 in AM3, the maximum TL for Vargr is F. But on the other hand, that is the same page that have a table for Aslan Morale.

Roger Malmstein has also tried to answer the questions about Aek Elakfough and has written a document about it.

Fixing some errors in Galactic 2.4

I noticed that the java (by Jo Grant) that I use for displaying was a bit picky with the syntax. When I corrected some galactic map files, (removing extra lines, etc.) I also noticed some other errors.

Usingou Sector, Chtatsplierol 0707, is listed as Chtatsplierol 0717
Tienspevnekr Sector, error in SubSector D.
Replacement for Core Sector posted at Galactic WebBoard.
Antares Sector, Aruga 2528 should be moved from sub-K to sub-L.

Solomani Rim, In SubSector I, 0606 should be 0626.
Solomani Rim, Lots of tabs instead of spaces.
Old Expanses, Sub D, Remove 0321 0131 Change 0132 to 3210, and fix UPP.

Are there any more errors?
