- XV-17: A largely empty system located in hex 0406, X-class starport. Contains a research base, the Eye, and the XV-17 Derelict.
- Clint: A low-law industrial world in hex 0207 with a C-class starport. Earth-sized world, dense tainted atmosphere, 30% surface water. One billion inhabitants, split between the Wastelanders who live on the desolate surface and the Hive-dwellers who live beneath the surface. Feudal technocracy supported in part by Mjolnir Corp. Outer belts of the system contain a number of asteroid-mining operations.
- Vega: The domain of Duke Ramanujan, located in hex 0607 with a C-class starport, scout base, research base, and pirate base in the Torrent Belt which was formerly home to human trafficking operations. No gas giants in system.
- Lotus: A small vacuum world with a B-class starport in hex 0408. First settled as a Chinese colony. Things haven’t changed much; the population density is extremely high, and the government is rather repressive. The high tech level of the planet makes it a draw for traders, though, and the peaceful culture means it’s a good place to do business without getting shot.
