Haven is a small mining moon, home to an independent group of minders that have laid claim to this rock, and who are not about to be shoved off. Haven’s miners have not struck it rich, but they have seen enough signs to believe that they are close to a major haul.
Others in the ’Verse apparently think that Haven has something worthwhile beneath the surface. The Corone Mining Consortium recently sent spies in to try to dig up any pertinent information. These spies were caught and, after revealing the name of their employer, they were sent back – a little worse for wear – carrying a message for the Consortium to stay the hell out of Haven.
Since then, the mining communities of Haven have pooled their resources to buy a large surface-to-air cannon which they have mounted near the edge of the largest mining town to discourage visitors.
