History & Background (Dossier)
Choleosti population lives underground and operates the largely automated port. In fact, there is more to Choleosti. While the permanent population, an extended family who have claimed part of Choleosti as their property, is small, the actual number of people in the system at any particular time usually numbers in the hundreds.
The sole established entity is the Cholesti Station. The Station survives by providing fuel and minor repairs to any and all who stop by. It is often thought of as a pirates haven, but receives enough business from the subsector navy to keep the pirates polite. The station is on the major moon of the large gas giant. The heavily contaminated nature of the gas giant makes the prepared fuel attractive. The Cholesti Station specially-built purifiers do not feature this problem. The station posses 1 million tons of local storage of fuel and capacity for additional 100,000 tons per week means even large Imperial fleets don't have to stay long. In exchange for free refueling of Imperial Naval and scout vessels, the Imperium maintains a platoon of well armed marines to 'assist' with keeping the peace. They patrol infrequently, usually staying in their small base adjoining the Station unless trouble breaks out.
