ASTEROID BELT void, radioactive, pop-1 res2 40
A mining colony identifying themselves as an outpost of the Lankan Allegiance, a variety of high tech stations and ships play the Asteroid belt using drones for much of the perilous labour and a mix of Human and Ogryn crewing the vessels. They are protected by a pair of Sleek Manta winger cruisers but otherwise the expedition is overwhelmingly Civilian.
The system itself is massively irradiated, even ships hull plating is not proof against it and even with shields in constant use there is risk, that said the Asteroids are providing a bounty of heavy metals and isotopes that the Lankans obviously consider worth the risk.
This is the first Time the Lankan Allegiance has been encountered by the Imperium, their capabilities and intentions are thus far unknown.
