An Earth-like World around a gas giant, that has its own landable moon, with volcanism.


The fifth planet in this system is a class III gas giant, and its second moon, 5 b, is an Earth-like world. Such moons are already rare, but what makes this one even more rare is that it has a nested moon of its own. Unlike its parent, that nested moon is landable, and it has surface volcanism too.

In such orbital configurations, the nested moon tends to orbit its parent moon quite close by, and this is the case here as well. Explorers who land on 5 b a will see the Earth-like world appear large on the sky. This can make for some spectacular sights, and Commanders interested in making photographs can also include the volcanic vents and geysers of the nested moon in their pictures too.

There is more to this system, however: the third moon of the class III gas giant, 5 c, is a gas giant as well, with water-based life. The three moon of Bya Phla VE-H d10-16 5 resemble a small system of their own. The wider system also includes a ringed water world, and a water giant as the farthest planet.
