Second Survey Data

The Traveller5 Second Survey format defines a standard for describing star systems in the Official Traveller Universe. It is composed of a series of fields describing various aspects of the Main World (MW) in each system including physical and cultural characteristics, and some details about other bodies in the system of interest to travellers.

The data for Regina (Spinward Marches 1910), home of Duke Norris and an influential world on the edge of the Third Imperium can be summarized in Second Survey format as:

Different editions of Traveller and different authors and publications may include different fields, present the fields in different orders, or provide different values for fields. The companion document Sector Data File Formats may be used for reference.

The hexagon location of the world within a sector, given as a four digit number. The first two digits are the distance from the spinward edge in parsecs ranging from 01 through 32. The second two digits are the distance from the coreward edge in parsecs ranging from 01 through 40.

The UWP gives a compact description of the physical and cultural aspects of the main world, as well the starport facilities and available technology. The fields are respectively:

Code Description
Starport Type of starport facility on world.
Size World diameter (in units of 1,600 kilometers).
Atmosphere World atmosphere type.

Worlds other than the Main World in a system may also be described by UWP codes. The port, if any, is referred to as a spaceport.

Code Spaceport Description
F Good Quality. Minor damage repairable. Unrefined fuel available.
G Poor Quality. Superficial repairs possible. Unrefined fuel available.
H Primitive Quality. No repairs or fuel available.
Y None.

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

The Economic Extension is abbreviated Ex and written in parentheses (()). It describes the strength of a world's economy. It is given as three eHex digits representing Resources, Labor and Infrastructure, followed by a decimal integer representing Efficiency written with a leading sign (zero is written as +0).

Cultural Extension

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

Base codes show the presence of military bases in a system; special codes deal with the presence of more than one type of base within the same system in order to maintain a single base code letter per system.

If no bases are present in the system, the field may be empty, a blank (space) or - (dash).

Base codes have changed significantly between different editions of Traveller. Sector data collections must indicate which set of codes are in use. Sector data collections may also define custom meanings for base codes.

Worlds given a Green Zone rating are usually indicated by leaving the data field blank or - (dash).

Code Description

PBG - Population, Belts, Giants

Population Multiplier

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

The first eHex digit is the population multiplier. Together with the population exponent in the UWP field, the world population can be computed as:

population = multiplier × 10exponent

Some legacy files may erroneously have 0 for the population multiplier but non-zero for the population exponent. Treat the multiplier as 1 in these cases.

Planetoid Belts

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

The second eHex digit is the number of planetoid belts in the system. A main world of size 0 is termed an asteriod belt, and is not counted here.

Gas Giants

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

The third eHex digit is the number of gas giants in the system, suitable for fuel skimming.

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

The number of "worlds" in the system. This is given as a decimal integer, and will always be at least 1 (the main world) plus the number of planetoid belts (see PBG) plus the number of gas giants (see PBG) but will include other planets orbiting the star(s) in the system.

Allegiances indicate the government which dominates a system. A short abbreviation is used.

Classic Traveller, MegaTraveller, Traveller: The New Era, Traveller: 4th Edition

Older versions of Traveller use a 2-character code. Due to the limited number of useful 2-character codes, these are not unique across Charted Space.

Code Description
As Aslan (general designation).
A0 Aslan Tlauku Clan (numbers 0-9 indicate Tlauku clan).
Cs Client State (usually of the Imperium).
Dr Droyne.
Hv Hive Federation.
Im Imperium.
Kk The Two Thousand Worlds (K’kree).
Na Non-Aligned (independent neutral world without affiliation).
So Solomani Confederation.
Va Vargr (general designation).
Vx Vargr (2nd digit 0-9 or letter a-z indicates specific allegiance)
Zh Zhodani Consulate.
Wi Wilds (Traveller: The New Era).

Stellar Data

1910 Regina A788899-C Ri Pa Ph An Cp (Amindii)2 { 4 } (D7E+4) [9C6D] BcCeF NS - 703 8 ImDd F7 V BD M3 V

Stellar Data indicates the spectral and luminosity class of each star in the system. This uses a subset of the Morgan–Keenan classification system (also known as Yerkes or MKK), such as G2 V where G2 is the color/temperature (210th of the way from yellow G to orange K on the spectrum) and V is the luminosity/size (main sequence).

Stellar Spectral Class

Code Description Temperature (K)
O Blue >33,000
B Blue-White 10,000-33,000
A Blue-White 7,500-10,000
F Yellow-White 6,000-7,500
G Yellow 5,200-6,000
K Orange 3,700-5,200
M Red 2,000-3,700

Stellar type indicates the spectral classification of a star; colors are the essential perceived colors of the star’s visible light.

Stellar Luminosity

The luminosity gives the magnitude, or brightness of the star. This correlates with the size of the star, although it varies depending on spectral class.

Code Description Diameter (Sol = 1)
Ia Bright Supergiant. 52 - 3500
Ib Weak Supergiant. 30 - 3000
II Bright Giant. 14 - 1000
III Normal Giant. 4.6 - 360
IV Subgiant. 3.3 - 13
V Main Sequence Star. 0.2 - 10
VI Subdwarf. 0.1 - 1.2
D White Dwarf. 0.006 - 0.018

Classic Traveller, MegaTraveller, Traveller: The New Era, Traveller: 4th Edition

White dwarf stars are represented by the size code D, optionally followed by a spectral code, e.g. DB, DA, DF, DG, DK, DM. (Note: This differs significantly from real-world classification of white dwarf stars.)

Some files may use luminosity code VII for white dwarf stars instead.

The special code BH may be used for black holes.

Traveller5

White dwarf stars are represented by the size code D with no spectral code.

The special code BD may be used for brown dwarf, sub-stellar objects.

eHex - Extended Hexadecimal

Traveller encodes numbers using "extended hexadecimal", which is really a way of encoding numbers larger than 9 into a single printable character. Numbers in the range 0-9 are represented as 0-9 as normal. Like hexadecimal, values in the range 10-15 are represented as A-F (always uppercase). But the encoding continues for values in the range 16-17 as G-H, 18-22 as J-N, and 23-30 as P-W.

Codes X, Y and Z may be used for 31-33 or may be reserved for exceptional values. Code X, in particular, is reserved for unknown values, such as the details of intentionally unexplored systems. Codes I and O are unused to avoid confusion with 1 and 0.
