Barras V - more commonly known simply as Barras - was the fifth planet in the Barras system.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Barras had long been a free port of call between the Capellan Confederation and the Free Worlds League. As such, the world was thick with Maskirovka and SAFE operatives. Barras was also used by intelligence operatives from other services as a launch point for operations against the Confederation or the League.[1]

Though the intelligence community used Barras extensively, its economy was actually based on trade between the Free Worlds League and the Confederation.[1]
