The United Panetary Federation Survey Ship Ourang Medan while scouting the Antares system, found that the ninth planet of the system was a rare "Paradise Planet", perfectly suited to all four of the Core Races. To prevent any one group from taking control of the planet the UPF set up a "share system" where individuals, planetary governments, or megacorporations could buy pieces of the planet to develop, but no one could afford to buy the entire planet.

A few individuals and small groups bought shares. most of them were very fringe roups looking to get away from the UPF or really rich beings looking for vrey private retreats and many back to nature types. Not surprisingly no planetary governments wanted ay part of Antares 9 since they could not get total control. Seven of the megacorporations bought shares and quickly established industries on planet.

It was discovered that there is a Native Race on Antares 9. They call the planet Imirrhos and teh UPF colonists call them that. The Imirhos had a pre-space flight technology and have quickly adopted UPF technology although trae with them has been limited by all parties to avoid culture shock. The Imirrhos have not only accepted the UPF but welcomed them. They have a small population and at one point had encountered the Sathar but were not decimated by them like te Eorna.

Things went well for several years on planet although each of the megacorporations kept lare armies supposedly to protect themselves from possible Sathar attack. They do skirmish with each other but no major corporate war has been fought on Antares 9. each of the planet Chief Exexutive Officers is also a military leader with their own personal guard battalion.

While overall things on the surface appear to be going well for everyone living on Antares, there are quite a few secrets about to burst out and possibly destroy the planet. First is that the planet was once a Klikk colony. Scattered around the planet are several artifacts of great power. Each of the megacorporations has found one of particular power and is saving it to use should in an "emergency".

The very rich on Antares 9 regulary vacation at a resort in a beautiful valley in the Antares 9 highlands. The CEOs of the megacorporations have quarterly meetings there. Unfortunately, this valley was once a toxic waste dump for the Klikk. The strange mix of chemicals here has a mutagenic effect on living creatures. The flora and fauna have been mutated already which is what it so beautiful. The seven CEOs have all been mutated by the valleybut since they can afford thebest medical care it has led to them all recieving very powerful beneficial mutations.

The Sathar have returned to Antares 9. Theyare not leading an all-out attack but have infiltrated several of the megacorporations and are planning to use them to start a war and have the megacorporations taek the planet for them. Then the Sathar will then move in and seize control of the planet.
Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

Ah, I think I see something you need -- though you have major bits of it already in the materials you've presented -- is a planetary brief and a system brief.

Granted, maybe this is meant to be more of a strategic game rather than worrying about placing it in the Frontier somewhere... but I'd argue what you've presented so far is detailed enough that it can be a good fan-created world that should go somewhere. You could either figure out a trade route to the planet or punt and leave it to the referee to put it where they may.
