Cukrona Tau is a scarred globe whose surface is sometimes brown, sometimes bronze, and sometimes orange. High clouds cast swift-moving shadows over the bumpy landscape. Odd foliage and mineral deposits reach up from the surface, but nothing that implores a passerby to stop. It would be easy to simply get a quick photo of your Starship with the triple rings of Mejic 16/02 as a backdrop and then fly into the sky. It would be easy to dismiss this entire place.
Like the planet that Cukrona Tau orbits, though, this moon is an explorer's delight. There is always something on the Analysis Visor here. There are things in the ground and things that float and a wide variety of minerals and resources. As long as you can tolerate the radiation there is something to discover. The radiation is perpetual though, measuring 7.0 Rad at all times of day and night and with a daily radioactive supercell pushing it to 11.2 Rad. A base level Exosuit has about five minutes to explore before it needs to take shelter and to recharge.
There are at least three Save Beacons on Cukrona Tau. The first two are a pair only 275u apart – a short walk – with one at the portal and its mate at the nearby trading post. There is another placed at the Traveller grave called Edwigh-Riet's End.
The sentinels of Cukrona Tau are very mellow. They really only investigate when the mining beam is used to overharvest resources or to hurt fauna. As long as you conceal your Multitool, the sentinels will leave you alone after their investigation. However, harvesting a Sac Venom will trigger a level 2 response.
