Introduction to the
This is the almighty Tunya Planet, the planet of mutations.
Tunya is a planet that encompasses the Sumesh star in the Beta Quadrant. According to the galactic map, the Sumesh star is about 25,000 light years away from the Sun, thus making Tunya about 25,000 light years (plus/minus 100 light years) from planet New Earth. Tunya is a pretty fast-moving planet as well. The average year is about 180 New Earth days, and the average day is estimated to be 1.5 New Earth days. In contrast to the size of planet New Earth – which has a radius of about 6,371 km – Tunya is much smaller (with a radius of 5,100 km). Since it is a smaller planet, the gravity of Tunya is also less than New Earth’s – about 0.8 g (0.2 less than New Earth’s).
What makes this planet so special and unique?
Tunya is uniquely distinct from any other planet that exists in the galaxy.
It is – it was – created from the wastes of other planets, with a significant part of it coming from planet New Earth. The waste included in it radioactive materials, metals, rocks, biogenic substances, scrap and chunks of previously living organisms – you name it. Its most distinctive aspect, though, is the civilization that populates its surface. The Tunyes, as civilizations from other planets prefer calling them, are living organisms that are not human, animal, nor plant; they are a new kind of hybrid, the kind that other civilizations would have hoped to have created. They are the most efficient beings that have ever existed, for the energy they absorb does not come from digestion, but from absorption of the solar energy from the Sumesh star.
