Description:

[3025] Chukchi III has become an economic and emotional hot spot in recent years. The discovery of massive deposits of titanium have made this quiet and beautiful world the center of several major mining projects. Unfortunately, this sudden economic boom has brought with it unsavory elements such as organized crime.

It is uncertain whether this small planet's picturesque green valleys and snow-capped mountains can withstand the onslaught of progress. The efforts of the Duke of Chukchi to halt the tide of mining equipment, boom towns, and the millions of foreign employees, have run up against Chukchi's President, who strongly supports the development.

[3067] Maxell Metals, Incorporated is a branch of the international Maxell Corporation, and a key supplier of personal, industrial and military vehicle-grade laser weapons and other optical components such as holovid scanners and similar products. In addition to the laser factories outside Novaya Kiev, the company also maintains roughly two dozen small mining operations on Chukchi, lured by the discovery of the titanium deposits years earlier.

These operations have drawn sharp resistance from the natives, many of whom believe their presence is destroying the planetary ecology, decimating local wildlife and drawing in "undesirable elements." The conflict between Chukchi natives eager to embrace the jobs and progress brought by Maxell and other companies, and those vehemently opposed to the "interlopers," has fostered lingering tensions and outright violence for decades, but Maxell's mining and weapons production facilities on Chukchi remain unmoved.
