There are extensive naval shipyards in addition to a small civilian starport. Its close proximity to the Naval Depot at Depot (Massilia 0301) shows in large numbers of naval vessels passing through Newport to and from the Depot. The listed population often swells up to ten to twenty times due to the passing naval crews and traders. The navy maintains a squadron of 30,000-ton fuel shuttles which continually move between the base and the inner gas giant.
History and background
The Aakhri initially established a self-sufficient mining colony on the third world of the system. During the M'Nengi holocaust of 102 – 105, the colony was wiped out by marauding M’Nengi hordes. In 105 the Imperial Navy started its war of retribution on Newport, wiping out all the M’Nengi still on-planet.
Newport was established on the third world of this system exclusively as a naval base protecting the rim-corward region of the Laraa Main and added protection to the Scout Information Depository at Reference (Core 0140). The 230th Fleet patrols the four corners space of Dagudashaag, Core, Massilia, and Zarushagar. Elements can be seen in the adjacent subsectors as well.
