Stratus was used as a Garrison System by Hyperdyne before the ICC was created, and there are the remains of a large ground military base and a deep space tracking station here. Today there is only a way station and a small, poor salvage operation recovering equipment left over from earlier conflicts. Aliens Adventure Game (1991), Leading […]

A research station has been established on this planet, which is in a very distant orbit around the system’s sun. It is a small station, with only eight people, and most craft simply pass through the system without going anywhere near Cryosphere. While valuable work is being done regarding the formation of solar systems and […]

Atlas is a large asteroid with no atmosphere. Temperatures are very low, and the radiation level is dangerously high for unprotected people. The Colony is a small one, composed of three domed and shielded communities with a total population of 12,000. The communities are still on a single plateau, and are connected by a monorail […]

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 […]

Weyland-Yutani was one of the preeminent Corporations of the early days of space exploration, and still produces some of the finest high-technology equipment in the ICC. It was once a partner of Hyperdyne, but Hyperdyne betrayed Weyldan-Yutani’s interests and sabotaged several of its exploration craft. Weyland-Yutani was badly disrupted by this, and lost its opportunity […]

This sector was originally developed by two major Corporations working together: Hyperdyne and Weyland-Yutani. At about the time the ICC formed, Hyperdyne sabotaged certain critical operations at Weyland-Yutani, and attempted to take full control of the sector for itself. This was a lucrative path for many years; Hyperdyne even discovered the Earthlike world of Hilo, […]

An old mining site which has been abandoned. The world is habitable by about 400 people, but is ugly, infertile, and generally unpleasant. Only a small community remains on Eyesore, which handles rudimentary repairs and limited services for crews which pass through. There is every chance that Eyesore will grow rapidly in the coming years, […]

This is the only well-developed system on the Loop. It is habitable, although cold and harsh, and has a functioning biosphere of its own. The native lifeforms include a generally humanoid creature which lives in large, complex warrens underground. These creatures usually live in communities of a few dozen, although large warrens of hundreds and […]

This is a new interstellar link between Aerodyne and Weyland-Yutani, and is being used to bypass Earth and ICC customs. There is a great deal of illegal traffic in this area, but the efforts of honest ICC Customs officials to clean it up have been unsuccessful. Part of the trouble lies in the relative weakness […]
