History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Naval Base host elements of the 214th Fleet.

In addition to Natoko Startown, the other major settlement on Natoko is Lakan City.

Natoko was originally a corporate fief of Tukera Lines, which maintained it as its primary maintenance and refit center in the subsector. The bankruptcy of Tukera following the Collapse caused it to be seized by one of the company's chief surviving shareholders, in this case the Marquis of Aramis.

Despite the Representational Reforms, the Marquis seat is still in existence, and the current holder still maintains the world as his property. But with the demise of Tukera, the Marquis was forced to open up the world to other outside development. The old Tukera facility has been expanded and opened to outside traffic, and the world has become an important connector for trade moving to the Vargr Splinters from Rhylanor and Sabine Subsectors.
