Sector7/The Lizard's Claw (Region)
Why is it called the Lizard's Claw? Go ask the lizards of Gebeti.
The Lizard's Claw consists of the systems Anisinza, Ceraso, Ceerti and Gebeti.

Tucked away in the northwest corner of the seventh octant are the four worlds which comprise The Lizard's Claw. The only way into The Claw (as the locals call it) is via Maarbi, 6.4 lyrs from Anisinza. To say it's an unpopular sector would be fair, but try telling that to the humanoids, frogs, and lizards who inhabit Ceraso, Ceerti, and Gebeti respectively. The colonial inhabitants of Anisinza are far too busy fighting a deadly disease to worry about popularity. Ships refuel and do their business at Anisinza's main station, and move on fast - dirtside excursions are definitely not advisable.
Ceraso has its attractions, especially the entertainment, and is a fairly civilised planet, but don't get into an argument with the locals. Gebeti is renowned for its Et banana plantations and unspoilt countryside. Life on Gebeti, like the ponderous lizards who inhabit it, is slow moving.
Ceerti is another matter entirely. It's perhaps unfair to call it a revolting little planet - yes, it's mainly industrial, and like Gebeti it's a feudal world, but much of that industry is underground, and the frogs have a lot of history. The many lakes with their surrounding mountains are well worth a visit, just don't go there during the mating season - then it is that the frogs earn their reputation for being fierce!
A few well-known pilots have made Ceerti their home, and make their living as couriers, taking cross-chart contracts which can be highly lucrative.
