Human Edge - the outer frontier. A system with no habitable planets, but full of riches that everyone covets. Despite being comprised mainly of asteroid belts rich in strategic minerals, and gas giants whose satellites contain the resources sought after by every corporation and power, the Asteroid colonies, orbital bases, deep space stations, and spacecraft are the only habitable places in this gigantic system - and the main stage for numerous conflicts. The story of the colonization of Human Edge, the most distant system ever discovered, is one written in blood. It is full of violence, driven by greed, and barely controlled by O-12 and the of the major powers with the business end of a high-caliber rifle.
