Point of Interest: Prime Orbital Habitat
Prime, a cylindrical shaped million ton orbital habitat, is home to Aksa's entire population. It is site of the class C starport and serves as a fueling stop for vessels unwilling to make the journey out to the system's gas giants. A fleet of six locally constructed five kiloton fuel haulers complete the return journey every few weeks.
History and background
Aksa was a pleasant agricultural colony during the First Imperium and the Rule of Man, supporting a population of more than seventy million people. During the Long Night the government fragmented into competitive, militant feudal states that had an average Technology level of six. The civilization on Aksa was wiped out by a nuclear-biological-chemical conflict around -1000.
Today the world is still seriously radioactive and has large quantities of toxins and pathogens in the atmosphere. There are extensive ruins on the surface. Most have been mapped from orbit, but there have been few proper expeditions to the surface.
The orbital habitat Prime has no formal government, although a 'Steering Committee' makes decisions concerning the maintenance and upkeep of the habitat. Within the chambers and corridors local councils or gangs run day-to-day affairs, and their rule is enforced by thugs and paramilitary 'Doers'. Vested interests prevent large-scale violence. Travelers are advised to engage the services of a reputable local guide and to avoid districts away from the port facility.
