|Braunstein class Station|
Bielefeld was established in 815 A.S. by the Bundschuh, after the organization managed to find a Jump Hole to what they christened the Luneburg system, deep within the Taunusfeld's recesses. Taking full advantage of its remoteness and emptiness, the Exiled Party created a fallback headquarters for the hypothetical circumstance of Bruchsal becoming compromised.

Substantially removed from Rheinland's typical borders, the system was designated Sigma-15 as news of its "discovery" was spread to the colonies.
Bielefeld itself is host to a substantial number of noncombatants; some of whom were spirited away from the squalid conditions on Hammersee and Planet Nuremberg, though conditions upon the station are honestly little better
