|Belfry class Asteroid Base|
Boulogne is a large asteroid base that has been haphazardly expanded with numerous artificial components. It is mainly maintained by the Gallic Brigands and their affiliates, but a number of other groups own and operate certain parts of the station. Despite (or possibly due) to its desolate location, Boulogne is considered to be one of the best places to "disappear" to if the law is getting too close.
Navy and Police patrols rarely go near the base, as the Brigands make sure that the "rumors" of ships vanishing among the asteroids in that region are not unfounded. While the base is fairly isolated, the inhabitants of Boulogne are hardly ever idle: power struggles between various minor criminal groups are frequent, smugglers come and go with some of the most exotic goods that the black market can offer, and night life on the station never stops. In a way, Boulogne is home for eternal night, with Nox in no lesser demand than Water or Air.
