I've been so indoctrinated by Star Trek, I didn't even realize that planet 'classes' are not an official NASA development. :P And there I was using them left and right... thing is, they're a quick way to summarize the essentials. Is it OK if I keep using them?

The planet classes featured in BLoSC are:

Class D - Asteroids, Moons, and Dwarf Planets - Rocks of this class are usually found in a star's "habitable zone" or "cold zone". They are typically 1,000 to 10,000 kilometers in diameter. Low solar radiation and minimal internal heat usually result in a frozen atmosphere. (Example: Canis Lunis)
Class M - Terrestrial - Planets of this class are found in a star's "habitable zone". They are typically 10,000 to 15 thousand kilometers in diameter. They have atmospheres that contain oxygen and nitrogen . Water and life-forms are typically abundant. If water covers more than 97% of the surface, then they are considered Class N. (Example: Capital Planet)
Class O - Pelagic - Class O planets are usually found in a star's "habitable zone". They are typically 10,000 to 15 thousand kilometers in diameter. They have atmospheres that contain oxygen and nitrogen . Water and life-forms are typically abundant. If water covers less than 97% of the surface, then they are considered Class M.  (Example: Bathyos)
