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 […]

This was the second ideal world found, and it is under the control of Hyperdyne. Hilo had an ideal climate and ample water when found, but lacked indigenous life. This made it very easy to tailor the world, introducing the proper mix of lifeforms from Earth and other worlds to create the perfect environment. Hilo […]

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 […]
