Examples: Q'tahL

Class I planets are generally found in a star's outer cold zone. Aptly called super giants, they range in size from 140 thousand to 10 million kilometers in diameter. Because they have such a high core temperature, they radiate heat. High gravity combined with low stellar radiation enables them to maintain a tenuous surface comprised of gaseous hydrogen and hydrogen compounds. This environment is not suitable for known life forms.
