a treasure...? something to pique our interests?
Just banging ideas about in my noggin!

The next planet out (#5, the iceball) Is a near twin to Khalamzadar, except it's frozen, barren, and has an unbreathable atmosphere - still, it HAS an
atmo. It's mostly hydrogen (that stuff is FLAMMABLE! It's why the Hindenberg went up like a Roman Candle) then helium, then nitrogen, and oxygen only
comes in fourth in the listing. Might be some ice caves about, or deadly crevasses or something, but you'll need some means of breathing, like a space
suit and compressed air tanks. I'm sure those could be found laying around on Khalamzadar somewhere.
Also, there's always the chance that one of the moons of the larger planets is inhabitable. The next one out from the iceball (the #6 planet) might be
a prime candidate. I never got around to generating moons for the system, so that potential is wide open. the 6th planet might be close enough in that
solar radiation in combination with tidal stress heating could make a moon warm enough to inhabit if the atmo is right - and that, too, is wide
One word of caution - tidal stress heating means the crust is constantly flexing, so it would be earthquake (moonquake?) prone!
