Lodestone was discovered during the second major expansion of the Colonial Council. Rich mineral deposits of gems and rare earths were found, enabling a large-scale mining industry and the eventual privatization of the planet. Although technically a member of the Federation, the planet is largely owned by BHP Billiton who leases parts of Lodestone to smaller interests.

Port servicesEdit

Lodestone offers a little of everything with a shipyard and outfitter in addition to the usual bar, Trade Center, and Mission BBS. Unfortunately, however, these spacer services are exceedingly meager.


Only a handful of shuttles and asteroid mining ships are available here.


Lodestone offers only the most basic of outfits.

Trade CenterEdit

Due to the massive mining operations on Lodestone, metal and industrial goods can be found very cheaply. Both food and equipment for the miners are in high demand. Water is also a strongly demanded import due to the arid nature of the surface.
