Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Lanth is a non-industrial world separated from the majority of its subsector by the Abyss, and is only accessible through Lunion Subsector or by jump-4. While this is not very important to naval or some scout vessels, its location has a significant impact on trade.
