Point of Interest: Planetoid Habitat Research

The Boskone Belt's appeal is not its mineral value, for it has none: its planetoids are all carbonaceous and ice fragments, useless for mining.

  • But some of the fragments are big enough to accommodate major habitat construction, and it is reported that Ludmilla claimed the system for "scientific research." Just what they are researching is not public knowledge.
  • Despite Boskone's limited resources the system's position in the midst of a region of thinly scattered stars means that the important Alphanor (Solomani Rim 0914)-Dzim Zhia Gwi (Solomani Rim 1515) trade route has no other convenient place to stop for fuel.
