This old mining and survey planet was abandoned after research showed it would not be profitable for long-term mining and terraforming. It has become a major Service Base for Hyperdyne forces, and many spacecraft in that Corporation’s fleet call New Chicago their home port. These forces protect New Chicago – Honeycomb route, and attempt to control traffic from Weyland-Yutani to Hilo.Aliens Adventure Game (1991), Leading Edge Games.
The civilian population here is 30,000, and the economy is heavily dependent on the Hyperdyne fleet. Laws governing the sale and possession of weapons are largely ignored, and just about any kind of military hardware is available here, for the right price.
