In the fall of 3301 the Explorers Association successfully completed its campaign to establish Obsidian Orbital as the first permanent outpost in the Pleiades cluster. Unfortunately the Pleiades never became the peaceful haven for explorers and pioneers envisioned at the time. The Ant Hill Mob, a criminal faction, soon bullied the original crew of the station into submission and began using the newly constructed station for their shady affairs. With the discovery of Barnacles and Meta-alloys, the Pleiades also got the attention of the galactic superpowers as well as several research enterprises. These days a multitude of groups and individuals struggle for dominance in the cluster, and this has lead to the establishment of a surprisingly large number of deep space outposts in the region.

Please note: The controlling faction of each outpost may have changed since this list was last updated. Caution is adviced.
