Droplet

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Droplet1

The fourth planet of the UFC 86783 system - named as New Kaferia by the Stellar Cartography department on the USS Titan since the star was very similar to Kaferia’s star Tau Ceti - Droplet was a Léger-type ocean planet. It was Class O, subclass L1. It had a lower density than Earth but was larger, giving it about three times the total mass. Nearly half of that mass was water ice.1

Droplet had a metal core thirty seven hundred kilometres deep, surrounded by nearly three thousand kilometres of silicate rock. Above that was a mantle of high-pressure allotropic ice over four thousand kilometres deep. Above the ice was an ocean of liquid water some ninety kilometres deep.1

The planet was in an unusually wide orbit around the sun, but had a tropical climate due to the considerable greenhouse in the atmosphere combined with convection currents in the oceans which brought heat up from the bottom.1

Unusually for such worlds, Droplet was inhabited by a variety of life forms including higher-order life. Although there was no solid land, the surface was dotted with floating islands composed of a coral-like substance created by living beings.1

The USS Titan discovered Droplet in 2381, the ship's first stop on the exploratory mission which it resumed after the Borg crisis earlier that year.1
