"Oberon IV, Gonn, is home to a robust mining community like those found in the most distant places on Earth:
a group of humans seemingly unconcerned with their own welfare in an
impossibly harsh environment. The world is not terraformed, and
inhabitants must brave extreme heat and cold in order to survive… but
the process is worthwhile, with massive exports of titanium, durasteel
and tungsten. Countless robotic refineries allow the miners to offer
processed alloys rather than simply raw ores.
The historical centerpiece of the system is Oberon V, Uriel.
One of the saddest stories in modern terraforming, Uriel represents an
attempt to raise the core temperature to make up for the lack of heat
from Oberon’s neutron star. The attempt was considered a sure thing and
its failure left three sloships of colonists bound for the world trapped
and forced to either eke out a life underground or die of exposure. A
competitive, family-based society has formed on the world, with seven
major clans vying for control of scant few resources.
Several above-ground settlements have sprung up in recent years,
although they have a distinct expiration date. In five years, a swarm of
70-year cyclical insects will devour all organic matter above sea
level. Attempts at extermination in advance of the deadline have thus
far been unsuccessful. As the saying goes, the most valuable thing
someone can ship in the Oberon system is Urielians away from it."

Though its star has fallen, the SynthWorld Project is still an
excellent place for traders to offload raw materials. With the proper
bribes, contractors can bring in heavy metals, construction equipment
and shipped labor to be sold at inflated government prices. Those who
live outside the law should be wary: there may be no place in the galaxy
worse for conducting illegal business. The UEE Navy's elite 18th Battle Fleet is on permanent station at Chronos and have spent years with little to do aside from practice their aim."
With a few changes, this snippet seems oddly appropriate....

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.
but now, money and enthusiasm has waned.
Our fundamental difference is that you believe what CIG says, and I don't. I remain skeptical of any of their pronouncements until it is available for all to see and work with.
I registered at the game's website long ago, so you can subtract one from that enthusiasm number....
