History and background
Ander’s Moon is named after the Terran Confederation officer who settled this inhospitable planet towards the collapse of the Second Imperium. The story goes that the personnel of one of the naval bases in the Daad Cluster decided to leave when they saw the impending collapse of interstellar society. They settled this small, almost airless, world at the farthest end of the cluster away from the main, determined to preserve their technological and cultural Solomani heritage.
Today, there are only five thousand or so inhabitants, but they maintain a high degree of independence and some of the highest technology in the Daad Cluster. Much of the income comes from operations at the starport, supporting traders travelling on the coreward route through Luramsum (Dagudashaag 3111).
The military antecedents of the world can be seen in the bureaucracy, which has grown up with the government. Additional income streams are provided through the deployment of highly automated gas refineries in the four gas giants of the system, one of which the main world orbits. These refineries (or ‘Rigs’) process the raw elements of the gas giant to useful chemicals in support of industry. Access to the orbits of such refineries is strictly controlled.
In the early Third Imperium, the Ander’s’ Moon system was the site of intensive anti-piracy operations conducted by the Kherse Naval Station. Several of the gas giant moons were the home to assorted undesirables. However, this problem has since been completely resolved.
