Frealee is the central star of the Frealee System. This system contains a multitude of asteroids, moons, comets, and 9 planets from Jerav, the closest, to Turizel, the farthest as well as a truckload of moons. The edge of the system is considered to lie at the edge of the Frealee Oort Cloud.

History

Frealee formed around 1.8 billion years ago from a stellar nursery. As per usual, it was surrounded by a large accretion disk in its early history, which over millions of years collapsed into a system of hundreds of protoplanets. Almost all of them either smashed into each other, were thrown into the sun, or ejected from the system. Forming with these planets was the young Darvikus, which is thought to have collided with a Mars-sized protoplanet. This collision blasted out a large amount of material which created the four moons of Darvikus. (one of them would cross the roche limit later and create Darvikus' famous rings).

Out of all the worlds in the system, only Darvikus and Ensalar were able to create life on their surfaces. Darvikan life would advance quite a bit faster, and migrated onto land, became intelligent, and evolved the Darvikans, which would become one of the founding members of the Cnara-Frealee Federation.

Future

Without intelligent intervention

In roughly 200 million years, Frealee will begin to expand and contract several times, eventually becoming a red giant and devouring Jerav, Phyrez, Tarbla, and possibly Darvikus itself. As this happens, the habitable zone will expand outwards to Morli and Vagelina. After this, Frealee will release its outer layers into interstellar space and creating a vast planetary nebula before collapsing into a tiny white dwarf, possibly with some second-generation planets. During this time, some of Frealee's dwarf planets may become habitable.

After Frealee becomes a white dwarf, it will slowly cool for billions and billions of years. After a few trillion years, it will evolve into a cold, dead black dwarf, floating in the black, forgotten by all.

With intelligent intervention

Currently, there is a starlifting project in progress which will lower the star's mass to a level where it will not become a red giant. While this is in progress, the star's luminosity will decrease, and the metals and things extracted from the star will be used to construct trillions of habitats. Either the planets will be physically moved inward, or huge lens arrays will be constructed to keep them warm.
