World Starport[edit]

Garonne has a poor quality starport.

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

Historical Data[edit]

Garonne/Haldensleben is the site of the ambush of the IISS Lightning Class Cruiser ISS Vermillion Stance in 1042. The Zhodani Tozjabr had acquired the itinerary of the cruiser from its agents within the Imperium and arranged to seize the ship in the Garonne system. When the Vermillion Stance arrived, all seemed normal until the reception of the Garonnean government on the ship's quarterdeck. The Zhodani utilized a variety of data acquisition modules, which were actually warbots in disguise. These warbots were programmed to act clumsily in order to give the impression that the Garonneans wished to appear more advanced than they actually were. The modules acquired much of the technological data being given away to the Garroneans. The ruse worked, with each group of modules wandering in selected areas of the ship accompanied by Tozjabr agents in disguise. As it happened, a curious fuel deck ensign saw through a warbot’s disguise, which disrupted the plan that would have otherwise worked perfectly. The fate of the Vermillion Stance only surfaced after a prisoner exchange following the Fourth Frontier War. [2] [3]
