|Umaya class Station|
Hikone is a small Blood Dragon Outpost concealed by the Hiyo nebula. It serves as a repair and refueling station for ships moving to and from the Sigma-13 system and those that patrol the nebula. The Blood Dragons also raid the Osaka Storage Facility from Hikone. The Golden Chrysanthemums sometimes use the base as a waystation on their Cardamine smuggling route, a practise the Blood Dragons only begrudgingly allow on the condition that no Cardamine is traded on the station itself.
