Akirate, a water-rich gas giant with a pronounced axial tilt, has an extensive temperate atmosphere supporting many bubblehabs

Star: 47 Ursae Majoris
Type: G1V
Luminosity: 1.6 xSol
Distance from Sol: 45.91 ly

Planets:
47 Ursae Majoris b (Akirate)(hydrojovian)
47 Ursae Majoris c (Skyholm) (eujovian)
47 Ursae Majoris d (Dekoranta) (eujovian)

Solar Dominion Inner Sphere worlds, center of heterodox Stevens clade. It is close to Fons Luminis but lacks terraformable planets due to a gas giant in the wrong orbit. Instead extensive orbital settlements extend throughout the system, and bubblehab colonies have been established in the atmosphere of the gas giants Akirate and Skyholm (47 Ursae Majoris b and c).
