Description: The Mestra system is dominated by a large asteroid field. As luck would have it, this asteroid field is rich in various minerals that have been made easier to extract due to the ability to mine them from asteroids, where the minerals are near the surface, and where there is no real environmental impact to worry about. Because there are so many easily-accessible mineral veins throughout the system, many independent prospectors have flocked to the system hoping to strike it rich and retire early. Much of the local mineral wealth, industrial capacity, living space and spaceport facilities are owned and operated by the Minos-Mestra Corporation, which has de facto control of the system. The only counterpoint to Minos-Mestra control is the Vigil, a watchdog group that looks after the interests of the independent miners, though it has little power to counter the corporate giant beyond bad PR. The Mestra system is also a known haven for many of the pirates operating in the Minos Cluster, as there is an abundance of abandoned mining facilities that could be repurposed as a pirate base, plenty of places to hide from the authorities, and ample plunder once the local miners (corporate or independent) have been so kind as to do all the extraction and processing. Ships operating in this system should be on their guard.
