 Alcor is a rare world in that it actually orbits a slightly variable star and yet has been blessed with an
atmosphere and environment capable of supporting life. The planet's remote orbit, however, appears to
somewhat mitigate the gravitational stresses caused during the infrequent shifts of its star's outer surface. Some
scientists believe these stresses, still felt in the form of frequent earthquakes and a noticeable spike or drop in
overall temperatures, may have played a role in speeding along the evolution of local life-forms, which run the
gamut from single-celled bacteria that thrive near polar geysers, to the goldfish-sized Alcoran swimmers which
populate the planet's equatorial zones. The tectonic stresses created by the Alcoran star have also contributed to
a number of volcanoes that line the geologically young mountain chains on both main continents, Galvinia and
Fuchisa. Since the early colonists first settled this world, much of the planet's mining industry has been focused in
these volcanic regions, where the abundant metals churned from the planet's active core are easier to reach.
Unfortunately, however, much of the arable land on Alchiba is exceedingly poor in nutrients, forcing the locals to
rely on trade with their neighboring systems for vital agricultural products. This lack has made Alcor the hub of
local trade routes throughout its history, but a poor staging world throughout the Succession Wars, though it has
done little to prevent the raids and invasions that characterized that same period of history. Fortunately for the
Alcorans, this world was another planet overlooked during the Jihad, and indeed the only known fighting that
took place in system occurred between Blakist aerospace fighters, DropShips, and JumpShips, who were
intercepted here during the fanatics' flight from Terra. The capital of Alcor, Ursamajorisaeti, is located on Galvina,
and is also home to the planet's largest spaceport.
Alcor's northern hemisphere is primarily devoted to agriculture.
Alcor was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic. Alcor became part of
Prefecture VIII under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
 Alcor was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Alcor joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
