These rare planetoids typically develop with a highly eccentric orbit, or near stars with a variable output. As such, conditions on the planet's surface are widely varied. Deserts and rain forests exist within a few kilometers of each other, while glaciers can simultaneously lie very near the equator. Given the constant instability, is virtually impossible for life to exist on Class-Q worlds.
- Attrition can occur to units outside pressure dome due to unstable nature of planet.
- Facilities are more likely to suffer damage if unprotected by pressure dome.
- Weather and Geological Events happen every turn.
