Unlike Beaumonde, Boros is not highly industrialized. It has a lot of prairie land where you can find sprawling ranches and farms. Boros’ cities have some factories that manufacture goods, through the products are meant mostly to be used on the planet. The major industry on Boros is scrap metal. Parts that didn’t meet The Alliance’s rigorous standards, castoffs, damaged parts and plain old junk find their way from Ares to Boros. Smaller and less reputable tech-companies hoping to pick up the scraps of The Alliance contracts keep outlets on Boros. Small wonder that folk see Boros as a good place to find parts for almost anything, often at a good price.
Better still, the planet has few landing restrictions.
Ares, one of Boros’ moons, is home to Iskellkian’s primary military shipyard. No wonder then, that the planet is just crawling with all manner of government agents and bureaucrats and military folk. Anyone flying near Boros can lay eyes on The Alliance cruisers being built in orbit around Ares. There are usually five cruisers in production at any one time, since it takes roughly six years to complete one.
