Updated in 2022 to expand system data, incorporate two real planets (Pi Mensae c, discovered and confirmed in 2018, known in-universe as Karajan, and Pi Mensae d, discovered/confirmed in 2020/2022, known in-universe as Kaykubat), and update parameters of all planets. More data on the star and its planets can be found at https://arxiv.org/abs/2007.06410 and https://arxiv.org/abs/2203.01018 . The moons of Barchin are completely fictional.
