Description:

[3025] Originally an independent colony within the Capellan Zone, Ares is a commercial free port with many factories and supported by local exemptions from standard import duties. It is one of the few truly prosperous small worlds in the Confederation.

Ares is most often remembered as the site of the famous peace conventions organized by Aleisha Liao. The savage campaigns fought in the Tintavel system in 2412, between the Free Worlds League and the Capellan Confederation, caused massive loss of civilian life. Appalled at this, Chancellor Aleisha Liao, spent months drafting an 80-page document describing conditions for "civilized warfare," rules intended to spare civilians from the horrors of unlimited war. Aleisha dispatched copies of her work to the leaders of all the warring realms, but expected only a lukewarm response. Instead, most of the leaders immediately communicated their wholehearted agreement.

Encouraged by the response, Aleisha immediately suggested a summit meeting on the Capellan world of Ares to further discuss the document. After much negotiation, the Ares Conventions were signed in the Grand Hall of the city of New Olympia on June 13, 2413.

Today, ironically, Ares maintains one of the few Capellan 'Mech producing centers left in existence.

[3030] Though the Ares factories are still rebuilding from the devastation of the Forth Succession War, it is on Ares that the Capellans have chosen to experiment with developing a stable, triple-strength myomer.

The destruction of most of the Quikscell Company's component lines at their Ares plant has actually led to their putting out a higher-quality product. Quikscell has always been known to use cheap parts; now that it is little more than an assembly plant, it is forced to rely on components shipped in from more conscientious firms.
