Cothran's landscapes are covered by grass and large brown hills with giant trees. The terrain is vaguely reminiscent of Earth's jungles. It has a small cave underneath the spawning area.
Cothran is considered the "standard" of playerbases for Solar Conquest:they don't usually align with any specific playstyle, which is unlike most other planets where there is at least one defining playstyle for that planet. This puts them at a very odd spot in the galaxy compared to the rest of the planets, as they usually will meddle in galatic affairs while never really at odds with any team, just with what is either best for Cothran or the server.
