I would like to nominate LG-093a! its a crazy triple-red planet that operates as a LST, ALO, and AUO for the HRT region, 3 things it dearly lacks.

I am voting for LG-093a

KI-840c should be on the list.

But I’d recommend the new starter planets get names before others.

OT-442b really needs a name, being the only starter planet without one now. I think something similar to Montem and Vallis would be quite appropriate. Like Volco, Riverun, or Steppton.

I would like to suggest “El Dorado” for LG-093a. Trippel red planet. So hard to get to, but plenty rich with ALO/LST and even GOLD!! ^^

Im also for naming OT-442b. It seems like the ugly sister of JS-299a. There is a lot of greek names related with JS-299a but I feel they dont realy match. But something like Infecunditas or Dürrenia*1 could be nice.

*1 in the sense of depleated soil

I’d like to propose the name Danakil for OT-442b; it’s a region in Ethiopia with sulfur hot springs, and given that OT-442b has both SCR and H20 I think it would be fitting

Ok seems like we’ve got some good suggestions going. Let the voting begin! First vote on which planet will receive a name:

  • OS-099c
  • KC-765c
  • YK-649b
  • OT-442b
  • QJ-149c
  • XD-354b
  • HM-049b
  • XG-452f
  • KI-401d
  • LG-093a

Looks like OT-442b is the winner! So far I see we have a few ideas for a name: Infecunditas, Dürrenia, Volco, Riverun, Steppton, Ifrit, Danakil. Any other ideas out there?

Kinda similar to Volco, but I like Vulcanus - seems like there could be a lot of volcanic activity on that planet for that amount of sulfer/oxygen (and probably sulfer dioxide) to exist. :slight_smile:

One related question: if I use my planet naming privilege now, is that locked in for the next universe?

No, planet naming rights reset with a universe reset.

Thanks for the feedback! Let’s close out this round with an official vote on OT-442b. What should it be called?

  • Infecunditas
  • Dürrenia
  • Volco
  • Riverun
  • Steppton
  • Ifrit
  • Danakil
  • Vulcanus

OT-442b shall be henceforth known as Danakil! Thanks for everyone who participated. Big shoutout to discern for proposing the name! Stay tuned for the next ‘Name THAT Planet’ :slight_smile:


Wow, that was an abrupt flip. Vulcanus was winning quite decisively. Did Danakil even have any votes yesterday or the day before?

It was rather abrupt. I was also surprised but I tried to wait until around the same number of people voted in the previous polls before closing it.
