wound to the Collective’s pride that has yet to heal.

Straka


Straka is a world rich in heavy metal
resources. The only problem inherent to mining these minerals is the environment of the planet itself – poisonous, choking air, scorching heat and an abundance of harmful radiation. Despite this, numerous companies have mined Straka over the years. Eventually though, they tire of the constant difficulties. Mendoza Mining Technologies currently holds the contract for Straka.

Chance


Though the planet lacked the appropriate oxygen levels when first colonized, the Starmechs terraformed Chance into a habitable world over time. Today, it has become the new capitol of the StarMech Collective. Most of StarMech’s top bureaucracy, including
Directors, resides in the capitol city of Bacchus. Stellar Security Command has settled into its newly constructed headquarters, and embassies for all twelve foreign nations are up and running. Although the relocation of the Collective’s seat of government proved an immense task, CEO Adam Spiner remains confident in the new capital while Desire is slowly rebuilt.
flood of refugees since

Chance into an overpopulated world for the
last several decades, a problem that grows
greater with every year that passes.
Chance boasts one of the largest
concentrations of recreational
establishments in the Collective. After the
destruction of Desire during GW2, most of
that planet’s entertainment companies
moved to Chance and established massive
recreational complexes and resorts. The
Osiris Waves represents the largest of
these resorts as an artificial island with
numerous casinos, beaches, and water

parks. Another Chance highlight is the

ark that combines Las Vegas garishness
nd ancient Middle Eastern architecture.
hance is also home to the Cybereum, the

Oleska


In the system’s early years, Oleska
resented a prime mining opportunity for
tarMech heavy industry. Although
tarMech used up its useful mineral
eposits long ago, the Collective continues
maintain a naval base on the planet’s
urface. In addition, since the Thuldan
id, the government has also funded the
onstruction of a medium-sized shipyard in
rbit.

Desire


When the Thuldans attacked Delight,
they had no intention of holding the system,
only of raiding it. Once they isolated
Desire, the planet’s defense platforms,
heavy industry, power plants, and
government buildings were systematically
targeted and destroyed. Fortunately, the
CEO and Board of Directors had already
retreated with the StarMech military to
Chance. Thuldan Legionnaires seized that
opportunity to land and collect military
grade hardware and engineering data from
Desire. On their way out, the Thuldan
warships damaged several tectonic plates,
raking an entire hemisphere with
earthquakes and releasing vast amounts of
CO2 into the atmosphere. The death count
escalated to unthinkable levels.
Today, the Collective measures Desire’s
population in millions instead of billions.
