  • 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.

Point of Interest: Surshi Cloth[edit]

The mainworld produces the famous Surshi Cloth. This fantastically expensive substance is produced by a local insect which has been altered and conditioned to spin its webbing in sheets of delicate, iridescent material. Attempts to raise these insects elsewhere have failed.

The natives of Zurrian keep hives of these insects as other humans keep Shaccas or bees, and harvest the cloth periodically. The local aristocracy claims 10% of the harvest but otherwise leaves the populace to its own devices. The cleaned cloth is shipped all over the sector - for those who can afford it. It is strong for its weight and a surshi garment retains its beauty for many years.

Zurrian's meager starport consists mostly of warehouse districts handling surshi cloth trade. Few offworlders visit Zurrian, making the need for quality accommodations low.
