History and background[edit]

It is one of only three worlds in the subsector with the facilities to support the development of technology at the Imperial standard. It has an extremely low population of six hundred individuals, and many of the facilities on planet are automated. The Isgiirdi (Shadow Council) of Vland pays for all the facilities through the co-operation of four Vilani Megacorporations, who maintain and support a small group of the researcher caste on the planet.

There is no government structure, as the researchers manage their own projects. Possibly the most fraught job on the planet is the official who negotiates with the researchers to discover their needs for the next year, and reports back to the corporations. Research is into a variety of subjects and is dependent upon the Megacorporation sponsors.

Although there is a class A Starport present at GigaByte, any repair or manufacturing work would be reliant on personnel brought in from off-planet.

Often, patrol cruisers from Vland (Vland 1717) (nearly forty parsecs away!) and the Vilani Megacorporatons are seen in-system, to fly the flag, and deliver supplies and personnel. There is little intermingling of crews with research staff, as the researchers make ordinary Vilani nervous. The system is what amounts to a non-Imperial Research Station.
