Areas of Interest

Asteroid Fields

Barrier Nebula

An outcropping of The Barrier, a cloud of ice asteroids and dust located in Newcastle.


Galloway Ice Cloud

A large field of ice asteroids. Substantial Outcast activity in the field is well-known to traders going to and from Scarborough, and it is rumored that an Outcast base was built inside the largest asteroid in this field.


Northumberland Ice Cloud

Large cloud of ice asteroids. Gaian eco-terrorists frequent the field; they prefer to avoid military patrols, but civilian ships are not advised to enter this area without escort.

Debris Fields

Belfast Debris Field

Belfast Production Facility was built by BMM 726 A.S. to refine for minerals mined on Planet Middlesbrough before shipping them out of system. The base suffered some casualties in the wake of the Founders Day Revolt, but unlike at Graves Station, the station security on Belfast was able to lock the station down and wait for the Bretonia Police Authority, and BMM stayed in control of the station.

Molly sentiments remained high among the Belfast workforce and the Middlesbrough miners for decades due to ongoing tight police presence on the station. In late 814, while BAF forces were concentrating on the Kusari Front in the Taus, the Mollies attacked the station with a force of improvised Gunboats and a large portion of their fighter craft. The Mollies quickly took control of the station and ejected the captured BMM executives from the top airlock. After seizing the station, the Mollies modified its facilities to produce an improvement on the improvised capital ships they had used to capture the base.

During the invasion of Bretonia by Gallia, the Mollies fortified the station and built a defensive minefield to defend the station from attacks. In late 825, having deemed that the Mollies would not be useful allies after the war was won, Gallia betrayed them. Considering Belfast as a liability in their future operations within the Newcastle theater, the GRI Battleship Embrun did what the Bretonian Government was incapable and unwilling to do, by ordering and deploying a long range strike with heavy load ordinance, completely bypassing the Mollys defenses and destroying the station and slaughtering its inhabitants without mercy. In a hopeless and useless last act of defiance, the Mollys activated the detonation of the mine field that caused no damage to the Embrun and its cohort. Said act was even in favor to the Embrun, allowing it to position itself in complete security in that sector afterwards, since no more mines were present in the scope.
