It is the home system of the Nlians who are members of the United Federation of Planets.
The Revla System is about 115 light years from Earth.
It is in the northern part of the Norayis Sector in the Alpha Quadrant.
It is located within the territory of the United Federation of Planets.
The system has one star, four planets, forty nine moons and a comet halo at the outer edge of the system
Type: G type (Yellow)
Revla is a G type yellow star, similar to Sol
Class: K (Adaptable)
The first planet from the sun, Icar is a hot, arid world with a thin atmosphere and several active volcanoes.
It's rich in ores and minerals, including dilithium, and is the location of the system largest mining facilities,
refineries, foundries and shipyards.
The Nlians have been as meticulous and careful about the environment of Icar as they are of their home planet
and in the 400 years they've have mined Icar, they've used less than 0.3% of its resources.
Class: M (Earth-like)
Population: 500 million.
Nlia is the second planet from the sun and homeworld to the Nlians.
Roughly the size of Venus, it’s largely an arid world that is mostly covered with large deserts.
Despite this, it’s home to a rich, vibrant and peaceful civilization that has lasted for thousands of years.
Class: D (Barren, rocky)
Tilva is a silicate/metallic moon, similar to Earth’s Luna.
It’s rich in minerals and known for its unique geographical features.
It's outposts are used both for mining and research.
Class: J (Gas dwarf)
Size: Slightly larger than Earth
Total Population: 500
Droshen is a gas dwarf not much larger than Earth and is the second smallest gas giant in the sector.
Atmospheric mining takes place on two stations, each with a population of 250.
Moons: 8 (Class: D)
Total population: 3000
Droshen's eight moons, all have valuable minerals and each has mining/research outposts.
Weengo Population: 500
Koqon Population: 500
Poca Population: 500
Zeenamel Population: 500
Afray Population: 400
Qoen Population: 300
Torvan Population: 200
Ayeea Population: 100
Class: J (Gas giant)
Combined population: 2000
Zeuna is a ringed gas giant, slightly smaller than Neptune.
It has two distinctions: it’s the third smallest gas giant in the sector and it has more moons than any other planet in the sector.
Atmospheric mining takes place on four tiny stations, each with a population of 500
Moons: 40 (All class D)
Combined population: 2643
Gemon Population: 543
Valeena Population: 500
Raquel Population: 400
Nal Population: 300
Jaym Population: 200
Lyray Population: 100
An'ne Population: 100
Eyer Population: 100
Arro Population: 100
Leelel Population: 100
Fara Population: 100
Tamiel Population: 100
Gemon is Zeuna's largest moon and location of Nlia's Deep Space Research Center.
It was here that Warp Drive was invented in 2010.
REVLA ICE/COMET FIELD
The Revla Ice/Comet Field is similar to Earth’s Oort Cloud.
It is a cloud of predominantly frozen ices that marks the outer boundary of the solar system.
It’s from here that Revla’s comets originate.
In 1839 the field posed the greatest threat to the Nlian people when a 14 km comet was dislodged from its orbit
and sent on a collision course with Nlia.
The Nlians, who had recently become space faring, successfully launched missiles to destroy the comet.
After this they accelerated their space program.

The Nlians had experimented with explosives for centuries. They would use them to clear landscapes
and blast holes through mountain ranges in mining and construction. In 912 A.D they discovered Green Fire,
their most powerful incendiary substance. They discovered it was a powerful energy source as well and it
was the main power source of their rockets when they started exploring space in the 1800's. That's why their
nacelles are green.
By 1816 the space age began. By the time the comet threat became appearant in 1839 they had built
a permanent space station and telescope in orbit and had regular moon landings
When they found out the comet was coming their projections showed that it would approach Nlia in three
years and they used that time to prepare. They did have a Manhattan Project style project, but they had
already had experience with explosives. They spent that time designing the largest and most powerful rockets
they'd ever designed and they used Green Fire which I suppose is similar to nuclear power
Another thing about the Green Fire is that the Nlians were as cautious with using it as they were
with everything else in their environment. It was their most powerful substance, but they seldom
used it in blasting, preferring to use other substances. When they used it on the comet that
was the most destructive use they ever put it and they only used a very small amount.
When Federation scientists studied Green Fire they discovered that it could be used as a
safe, highly efficient power source, but if used as a large scale explosive weapon it very quickly
went out of control with devastating consequences. In other words the blast would be a LOT
bigger than planned.
If Green Fire had ben native to Earth it no doubt would have been used as a weapon
and the result would have been catastrophic.
