"Infamous for its abundant micro-climates and irradiated soil, Asta is a planet that is relatively
unimportant." A city on the planet is perched around a field of luminescent crystals, providing it not only abundant resources but untold wealth and unsurpassed natural beauty. Commander Kroton sets his ship down gently in a garden just outside the city outskirts.
Leaving Asta on an underground mission to deliver medical supplies, sure enough he comes up against hardened defences "somewhere above Thefrel." Not a problem thinks Kroton as he easily dispatches the threat with his pair of brand new beam lasers.
He lands at a moonbase and offloads the precious blackmarket medicine for a wonderfully hefty profit. Kroton now has enough money to set up a small base of operations and begin planning the growth of his future Empire.
