Star Wars: Shards
Originally, under another name, nothing but a long-abandoned gas mining station, far off the normal travel paths through space. It shows signs of having previously been a stellar observatory, and an experiment station for scientists studying the unremarkable gas giant it orbits. When Pruneface and the Mentats screwed over each others’ “Final Solution” and completely borked the hyperspace navsats, the good guys hid here. Acting Fleet Admiral D’arcy oversaw the station’s early expansion in lumps and wings, as more Tapani citizens and Rebel Alliance insurgents and pods of the 257th and frustrated pirate clans and ImpSec operatives and basically everybody trickled in, with or without supplies.
Legally speaking, I’m not quite sure who (according to the Tapani government maps) owns New Dendarii at this time. It’s not exactly on the official map. The Imperial tax office doesn’t list it, which implies that it’s considered Gregor’s property directly; he doesn’t pay taxes, taxes are paid to him. Even in his person as “Count Vortapani”, he doesn’t pay taxes … but businesses and properties owned by others within his domain DO pay taxes, and therefore ARE listed. So who the hell do the businesses on New Dendarii pay taxes directly to? The Imperial Tax Office records don’t say, and neither do the business owners on-station. Even the accountant for the Beskar Aran, officially headquartered there, gave me a blank look on that one. Why the hell wouldn’t it belong to ? It’s named after his glow-in-the-dark property.
