Simurgh is a SuperterrestrialGarden World with a relatively thick oxygen/nitrogen/carbon dioxide/helium atmosphere. The planet has active plate tectonics and many small plates. Oceans and seas are numerous but cover less than 50% of the surface; volcanic activity is commonplace and low mountain ranges cover much of the land surface.
The seas are filled with diverse lifeforms, including many autotrophs and heterotrophs, often in symbiotic relationships or as part of colonial organisms. Since the seas are largely discontinuous, evolution has taken many paths. Land organisms are present, but are stunted by the ferocious gravity.
This world has been under continuous observation since 7309 when a team of Negentropist xenologists reached the system.
