Exoplanet Discoveries and Updates
#45
Here's a few of the ocean worlds we do have in the setting. These are the ones with liquid water surfaces and temperate atmospheres; quite often these worlds are colonised using floating habitats, generally created using carbon allotopes and compounds extracted from the atmosphere.
Panthalassa, Blue, Sarustre, Henson, Donbetyr, Manyanga, FuMa, Rengood;
there are others, and in fact temperate ocean worlds are among the most popular planets for colonisation, since they often have free oxygen in their atmosphere due to photolysis of water.

The more common pyrohydrothallassic worlds are less useful in their unmodified state, although I expect some of them could be modified into temperate water worlds by the use of a sunshade or weather machines.
