History and Background[edit]

Saffron has hosted a failed settlement three times, and is now undergoing a fourth attempt. (Attempt #3 suffered an orbital bombardment during the Julian War.) Currently, Saffron earns her wages by retrofitting sublight starships sent to her by the nearby world of Ababat (Empty Quarter 0127) and Lukaau (Empty Quarter 0227). When they arrive, Saffron outfits them with Jump-1 drives. This is an American Indian world, but few here care.
