System Description[edit]

Lübeck is one of the systems that form a part of the Deep Periphery nation known as the Hanseatic League.[2] There are at least two worlds in the Lübeck system not inimical to human life; Lübeck and Quarantine. Quantine is located one place beyond Lübeck in the system, and is a world that has been subject to extensive impacts from asteroids or comets at least twice during its history, leaving large numbers of craters, marked themselves by further craters. Other than the craters, Quarantine's most distinctive features are the tawny deserts found on the world. A traveller to Quarantine in 3065 described Quarantine as a world of "wind and silence, dust and time". Quarantine was distant enough from the system primary that the sun was visible during the day as a watery-yellow white pinprick. The Hansa used Quarantine as a quarantine world for those wishing to travel to Lübeck; visitors were required to first register for permission to visit Lübeck through a Customs and Inspection complex located in Quarantine City on Quarantine via a hugely time-consuming and bureaucratic process.[1]
