System 206 contains a single F-class yellow-white star. This class of stars are larger than yellow G-dwarfs. This star is quite small for an
F-star but is still a medium-sized star with a mass of 1.509 stellar masses, a high surface temperature of 6281, and a high luminosity of
2.04768 stellar luminosities. Being relatively massive, but not so hot and bright as to blast away planet-building material, nor so large as
to hover-up such material, these stars are good candidates for planetary systems. They are also quite long-lived (although many of the
larger F-stars in this sector have already ended their main sequence life) and so allow sufficient time for complex life to evolve.
Planets beta to epsilon (the second to fifth planet) are in the habitable zone and have surface temperatures compatible with
carbon-based life. The innermost gas giant and its moons are baked to high temperatures. Planet beta (an M-class planet) and epsilon
(also an M-class planet) and the dwarf planet delta have atmospheres too thin for complex surface life. Planet delta, a gas giant, is the
most interesting for astrobiology. Its moons are small and airless worlds, but the upper layers of the gas giant's atmosphere are
unusually mild and has a curious spectrum. It might be informative to probe the upper layers of this gas giant planet.
