Oort cloud

Oort cloud Asteroid field

Political affiliation Irrelevant


A former battleground of the CSA navy and pirates, and a haven for water and ice production, the Oort cloud has lost some of its importance as material synthesis technology and growing economies in the inner system make raw materials unnecessary. Today, the masses of tiny stations, industrial, military or illegal, are occupied by spacer nomads and the CSA military. The Cloud is sparsely fortified with fortress stations as first line of defence against any hostile incursions from the interstellar gulf. Many of the fortresses were established decades ago, and in modern times a naval posting to the Oort Cloud is considered either something done to put a retiring soldier out to pasture, or a punishment for an uppity officer.
