EPSILON 358

A Class-N desert planet with a breathable atmosphere located near the center of our galaxy where it was said that an amazing metropolis, the capital of an ancient race predating anything the Federation knows of, could be found there. The planet was discovered to be filled with a unique crystal substance that made the entire planet act as a computer which was used by the D'Arsay to link to the past.
GAMMA ERADI CLUSTER

At first glance the GAMMA ERADI Cluster appears as a normal globular star cluster counting over 200 aging stars. It is only once inside this region of space that the effect of the odd electromagnetic and gravitational fields which are constantly in flux can be detected. Due to the relatively close proximity of older, decaying stars and the high number of solar plasma discharges, the most effective sensors will be rendered nearly useless.
HENDAL TRADE STATION

This cloaked and heavily armoured trade station is exceptionally difficult to reach being located inside an asteroid field which is completely surrounded by a gravitational anomaly. Attempting to reach the station without the specifically designed map will most certainly lead to the ship being destroyed. Once inside, travellers will have to deal with some of the toughest and meanest traders of the New Ferengi Alliance and beyond.
MASQUERADE DREAMS

Top of the line Risian Cruise Liner able to accommodate 1500 passengers.  With a crew of 425, 300 of whom have for sole purpose to make the cruise as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, the MASQUERADE DREAMS is the next best place to be after RISA.  100 engineers insure the smooth functioning of the ship while the remaining 25 command staff make sure that nothing goes wrong. 
PI ALPHA III, Moon

The only moon orbiting PI ALPHA III, this geo-unstable J-Class planetoid is used by members of the NEW ALEXANDRIA complex as a testing ground for ships and supporting crafts.  Possessing a wide range of terrains, the moon's frequent quakes and eruptions make for a very challenging environment. The ash cloud filled, thin atmosphere of the moon provides a level of difficulty capable of testing the most seasoned of pilots.

VALLA ROYAL

Massive space station in orbit of ORSANNA IV, an H-Class desolate mining planet in a neutral part of the Beta Quadrant.  The planet's varied and plentiful mineral deposits have attracted prospectors from all across the galaxy despite the harsh and unforgiving climate that rages on the planet.  The VALLA ROYAL was initially constructed as a refueling and support station but over time it became a place for the miners to spend their hard earned fortunes.  Soon, the VALLA ROYAL became more popular than the planet it orbits, drawing every type of people to it, from high ranking diplomats to the lowest class of crooks imaginable.
