|Average prices are based on long-term established averages (the so-called arithmetic mean). The average quantity is based only on quantity values greater zero. Availability gives a percentage whether a good is available in this system. Please note that these are statistical data. GalCop regulations expressively forbids the broadcasting of actual prices beyond the current system.|
The Freeland Academies of Galaxy 8 supply a significant fraction of the Galactic Navy's officer corp. There are concerns that the significant losses in the war against the invading Thargoids could lead to significant political instability.
With the sudden expiration of the Vegedius Academy Master during a delectable course of wolf meat the senate was finally able to remove his mile-high white marble statue that was rapidly becoming an object of worship by the recently disillusioned populace. The abandonment of the ancient volcano-worshiping belief systems on Vegedius was stimulated by the terraforming of customized volcanoes by the rival Usreinxe academy.

Rescue, Recovery and Salvage (RRS) Group the leading specialist group for official retrieval of damaged and derelict craft, and rescue of crew and passengers has its Galactic headquarters here at Vegedius.
1000 Cr. for an escape capsule and a new ship was a pretty good idea when witchspace-capable ships were rare and most pilots with them stuck to milk runs. Nowadays, with expensive Boas being lost all over the place, even the cheaper ships costing a six-figure sum, and SAR (Search and Rescue) operations significantly increasing the number of people surviving to claim on the insurance at all, the majority of insurers are heavily dependent on GalCop's dwindling subsidies.
It therefore comes down to independent companies finding the right approach, and RRS Group (founder: Jara Alsthen of Ceanbibi) has been by far the most successful at filling the gap. Starting with a few prototypes flown from an old Bulk Hauler in Lezaer, the RRS Group now has Waystations near the spacelanes of stable systems throughout the Eight Galaxies.
The headquarters are situated well away from the established space lanes, in the system's asteroid belt, with a Waystation in the usual place providing RRS Group facilities. Visitors from outside the RRS Group are rare, and there is little to attract passing Commanders, but the headquarter's eight hangars are often filled with newly-constructed Arafuras, and RRS staff and contractors making deliveries.
As the Headquarters' shipyards are set up for construction, not repairs, only refuelling will be offered to visitors. Similarly, opportunities for trading are very limited, though there are usually unwanted surplus minerals at a reasonable price.
Vegedius is the RRS headquarters for Galaxy 8 only. The intergalactic headquarters are at Lezaer in Galaxy 3.
