Serenity is a planet in the Lotus system of the Federation. It was settled primarily by Japanese emigrants who did not settle in what eventually became the Auroran Empire (where most Japanese emigrants ended up). Serenity is a pleasing mix of modern urban centers and traditional Shinto temple complexes and gardens. It has become a thriving financial center and the population is generally affluent.
While the people of Serenity are generally very hospitable, the world itself does not offer many services. There's a Mission BBS and a Trade Center, and the bar is well known for its excellent food and drinks, but very little is offered specifically for spacers.
Serenity does offer several goods for trade, but as Serenity's economy is based primarily on its financial institutions, it has no exports to speak of. Medical supplies and equipment are at least offered at fair prices, while there is a great demand for food, luxury goods, and opals.
One of the easiest, and most lucrative, trade routes in the game exists between this planet and Gem in the Fomalhaut system. Buy (or mine from the asteroids there) opals at Gem, then make the four hyperspace jumps to the Lotus system and sell the opals here at Serenity. Then buy equipment at Serenity and return to Gem to sell it there. Both routes make you money.
