Description:

Gallery has long been known as one of the darkest and moodiest worlds in the Commonwealth. The stormy climate, born from three seas and a large moon, cloaks the surface of the planet in an almost perpetually violent night seldom penetrated by light from a small sun. Why the Steiner family chose to hold onto such a dismal world when they once had control over many more pleasant planets no one knows.

Because the planet had no native lifeforms, the colonists had to import species adaptable to the dark conditions. Gallery supports a fairly large mining industry that searches beneath the surface for pockets of diamonds and metals. Considering the dark and gloomy atmosphere above ground, it is not surprising that Gallery natives make excellent miners: the atmosphere in a mineshaft is not much different from the conditions on their homeworld.

[3067] Founded during the closing years of the Second Succession War, Dynamics Company grew up on Gallery as an equipment manufacturer geared toward supporting several local mining businesses. Producing personal and automated mining devices at first, the company branched out during the Third Succession War, adding a missile weapon production facility and test range to gain a foothold in the military marketplace. On numerous occasions, the Cathaways — who have dominated Dynamics’ board of directors for more than 200 years — have made noises about expanding into WorkMech or even BattleMech construction, but at present nothing solid has materialized.
