Rauther is a planet in the Rautherion system, near the center of Federation space. It was the third planet to be purchased outright, not by a government, as had been the case with the prior two, but by a corporation . It is wholly-owned by Rauther Power Industries, Inc, which maintains both their primary research labs and main offices here. Rauther is also home to a small fleet of unmanned ships which mine Rautherion Prime for gas. The share price for Rauther Power Industries is on constant display via holographic projection into the atmosphere, a testament to the planet's corporate nature.
As a modern, industrialized planet, Rauther provides many services, most notably its Outfitter, which offers rare equipment and cutting edge Rauther Power Industries technology. A Mission BBS and Trade Center are naturally also available.
