History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Cotinga was a world dying from a lack of industry and failing infrastructure. The Corellian League placed the world under its "protection" in 1140, promising money towards uplifting the world. But so far only a small amount of the promised investment has materialized, infrastructure keeps crumbling, and people keep emigrating to neighboring worlds. And the level of grumbling among the remaining population has begun to fester into open resentment of the Corellian occupation forces.

World Starport[edit]

Cotinga has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.
