Star's End is a barren, desolate world shielded by a dense asteroid field, salted with minefields and laser turrets. The system is also rocked by frequent ion storms that make orbital navigation hazardous. Because of its inconspicuous appearance and the danger in transiting the system, this small rock of a world was an ideal base for the collection of space marauders known as the Belt Pirates, under the command of Morgan Fletcher.
As the supplies of spare parts, especially for jump vessels, slowed to a trickle, the Belt Pirates became aware that their livelihood depended on the technical expertise to repair and replace malfunctioning avionics equipment. Though numerous pirates have been killed while plying their trade, the technology of building and repairing JumpShips is by no means lost in the Belt. Hidden within the Trojan points of the Belt are zero-G docks and hangers, capable of actually reassembling functional JumpShips from scavenged components.
Star's End has proven to be a blessing in disguise to its owners. Beginning in the mid 2880's, massive deposits of germanium, which is essential for starship construction, were reported in locations under the planet's southern ice cap. In the decades since, there have been rumors of vast underground mining and industrial complexes that stretch from the polar cap to the equator.
