This outpost consists of a Research Station on a moon which orbits a gas giant at the edge of the system. There are only 30 permanent residents at the facility. A Service Base with a crew of 1,000 orbits the planet, and attends to the traffic through the system, but there is little contact between […]
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 […]
Grendel is a large colony of over 200,000 people, who live in hundreds of small domed cities. There is substantial light industry, and the world has a major stopping point for travel among Micor, New Eden, Weyland-Yutani, and Hilo. Much of the traffic was lost to the New Chicago – Lobo route, but Grendel still […]
Or more accurately, the US Navy wants to own the world’s largest ‘robotic’ ships. Namely, in the form of what has been titled the Large Unmanned Surface Vehicle (LUSV). Recently, the UK’s Royal Navy’s dangerously low number of ships has been highlighted by events in the Persian Gulf, with Iran seizing a British-flagged oil tanker […]
This Sector was the first to yield an Earthlike world, the planet of New Eden itself. Exploration was handled by a coalition which renamed itself New Eden/JV after the world which made it rich. This Sector comparatively stable, compared to the strife of the CSC Sector and the danger and uncertainty of the Borodino Sector. […]
This colony is the dumping site for people removed from Hilo during the Colonial rebellions. These are people who were considered to be security risks, but who could not be convicted of serious crimes. All sorts have been sent here; petty criminals, relatives of rebels, free-thinkers and rabble rousers, intellectuals, and those who were simply […]
A research and manufacturing lab set up by Hyperdyne in an underground installation. It develops weapons technology and security systems, and contain only a few hundred personnel. The location of this think tank is not common knowledge, and the best military and scientific minds of Hyperdyne do their work here. Aliens Adventure Game (1991), Leading Edge Games.
This barren world is the base camp for Hyperdyne’s space exploration fleet. Hyperdyne is trying to open a direct route to Pandora, as that is the location of the only other major research being done in the field of biotechnology. If Hyperdyne is successful and can keep its route a secret, it will be able […]
This is another of Hyperdyne’s special labs. It is a space station, where work is done on biotechnology integration and modification. Its location is known at the top levels of the ICC, but it is not common knowledge and there is no commercial traffic to Byal. Aliens Adventure Game (1991), Leading Edge Games.
Little is known of this system, except that there is a large space station in orbit around the primary planet and that there are no ground installations. Rumor indicates that Hyperdyne does experimental work on Synthetics here, and that illegal programming packages are sometimes sent from Marduk into the ICC. There is an extremely high […]
