New Eden Sector: Ajax

This is a marginally habitable world that could yield great wealth after successful terraforming. Several years ago, there was an accident at an Atmosphere Processor here; an immense explosion caused a major radiation release, and the mid-sized Colony was almost entirely destroyed. There was a tremendous loss of life and wealth, and literally thousands of lawsuits were filed in the weeks after the disaster. Since the end of the relief efforts which evacuated the survivors, the world has been largely uninhabited as efforts are made to resolve this unprecedented legal morass. There is a small permanent station some distance from the site of the old Colony, and the staff’s primary duty is to take inspectors, analysts, experts, and lawyers on tours of the devastation, and to track and report data about the world’s current condition.
