History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Linda was settled after Caledonian explorers discovered rich veins of lanthanum ore on the hothouse world. A corporate venture was organized to exploit the find, and the planet was duly claimed by Arbuthnot Minerals and Resources Ltd., which company financed a mining colony on Linda. The colony was quite successful, continued to attract colonists, and remained under corporate ownership and control. The inhabitants of Santiago were just beginning to get into space again when the new colony was settled. They attempted to press claims of prior rights to the world, for their own world was poor in lanthanum and hard-pressed to produce jump drive grids (which require lanthanum). This was the start of bad relations between the two worlds. Recently, these bad relations flared into outright conflict when raiders from Santiago attempted to illegally mine lanthanum on Linda. The Santiagans were destroyed by a company police patrol, and a wave of recriminations and counter-recriminations has escalated into an open interplanetary war between Santiago and the company.
