As the Merchant Guild spread across the Coreward Region and established trade routes between the Grand Federation of Races and the Star Kingdoms, it also established outposts to support those routes.

Sometimes these outposts orbited habitable worlds, but often they circled lonely gas giants in dead systems, providing quick access to interstellar travels, but sparse amenities.
