Jata is a small, unimportant world with a very thin atmosphere. Lying well off a trade route, the system was rarely visited, and only settled in the last couple years. One reason the system was ignored was a lack of suitable worlds; Jata isn’t exactly a “t-shirt weather” planet, and there are many worse worlds for settlement in the system. Another reason the system was ignored (besides its location, and the difficulty reaching it; a jump-3 ship or greater is required) was a perceived notion there was little here in the way of resources.
It is now becoming apparent this is far from the truth. There are rumors currently circulating that a large, rich strike has been found in the system’s first planetoid belt (orbit #6), though the few belters there are denying this is the case. News of this rumor have made it out of the system, in spite of attempts to stop them from spreading (the world’s government fears being swamped by prospectors and cutthroats), and it is feared the system is about to experience a “gold rush”, though what exactly has been (reportedly) discovered in the belt has not been revealed…
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
