No one loves Hadrian; famously known as the No Man’s Land where the bulk of the warships of the UEE and Xi’An fleet maintained their stalemate, Hadrian is now one of the most famous checkpoint systems for pilots traveling between UEE territory to Xi’An proper.

Anyone traveling through Hadrian can expect to be scanned at least three times: by an initial human patrol, by a combined customs patrol near the inner system and then by a Xi’An force holding station at the other side’s jump point. Smugglers interested in bringing anything illegal into Xi’An controlled space would be advised to avoid Hadrian… or at least invest in some heavy duty electronic countermeasures.

Pilots are advised not to wander off the buoy-marked space lanes; unexploded anti-ship space mines are commonly discovered in the system.[1]

Known as "No Man's Land", Hadrian's location near Xi'An space made it a military strategic system during the Cold War. At that time is was called Nivelin.[2] Now it is famous for being a main shipping checkpoint between the UEE and Xi'An Empire.

Planets

Hadrian I

A gas planet with a rocky core, Hadrian I's atmosphere is too volatile to terraform.

Hadrian II

A Class III gas giant, Hadrian II is a featureless blue globe.

Hadrian III

Nicknamed "the Watcher" thanks to the large dark spot in the planet's otherwise pale color, Hadrian III is a massive ice giant on the fringe of the system.

Asteroid Belts

The Hadrian system contains one asteroid belt. Belt Alpha is located between the orbits of Hadrian II and Hadrian III.

Space Stations

Hadrian Flotilla

On the lagrange point of Hadrian II, there's a mini-mall cluster of former military stations that have been converted into a massive bazaar. Some newer trade stations have opened in recent years as the site has become a mecca of trade to the Xi'An.
