History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Bendor is located on a jump-2 route between Trin and the Bellion worlds. Bendor is strongly isolationist, but has accepted client status to obtain Imperial protection against potential invaders. The entire world outside the starport is closed to visitors.

In the long centuries since Bendor was originally colonized, the world has open to the external universe more and more.

The Bendor shipyards are a major producer of Aslan-designed spacecraft such as the Trekhyair class quarantine cutters.

The Naval Base hosts elements of the 100th Fleet.
