System Formation: Second Category. The three worlds face away from each other so that the non-polar sides of their gravitic ore point inwards, and the sun swings an ellipse around them. The worlds spin like frisbees, creating seasonal change, and the sun's orbit creates a day-night cycle; the night is roughly twice as long as the day and can get considerably colder. With these types of sun systems, the seasons are most extreme near the edges of the worlds, becoming more uniform and changeless towards the center of the planet. All second-category systems are horizontally aligned, so that the planets face outwards towards other systems and the sun's ellipse is horizontal.
About the System: Utenis is a relatively quiet system. Some limited trade goes out to Omotai, but no economy or industry so much as touches on the other two worlds, left alone as too primitive to risk influencing. Most trade is from buthines, coming from Drosz, though some ret'chek'r will visit from X. Utenis is considered part of ret'chek space and under their protection. It is not Light-policed.
