The flag of the Gensou System:

A Frozen Future

The system was first mapped and explored by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 29. Like most systems in the region, it was briefly part of the United Outer Colonies, a short-lived separatist nation that was reabsorbed into the Yamatai Star Empire in YE 33 after they suffered unrecoverable losses to the NMX in the Second Mishhuvurthyar War. They were shared in an uneasy partnership with the Lorath Matriarchy until YE 39.

During the short time, the system was part of the United Outer Colonies, through a cooperative effort with the Lorath Matriarchy there was a large scale effort to terraform some of the worlds into inhabitable planets. The project remained idol, but the terraforming equipment was left active, the project was eventually declared a failure by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 42 by the First Expeditionary Fleet.

With further evaluation, it was determined that the ice worlds would be better colonized using dome enclosed colonies and the Yugumo Corporation intends to establish resource extraction colonies in the system before the end of YE 43.

Due to the strategic value of the system and its proximity to other core systems like Jiyuu System, the Star Army of Yamatai decided to place what would be the First Expeditionary Fleet third Bastion Star Army Base in the system in YE 42.

The N311 (Gensou Belt)

The Gensou Belt is a massive belt of leftover rocks from the formation of the Gensou System, it is a treacherous field of rocky debris varying in size from the size of a fist, to the size of a small moon. There is always action in the belt, one tumbles into another, a predestined course set in motion decades or centuries before. Shifting gravitational fields rule with a chaotic hand over all things rock and metal. To most it is a navigational hazard, to the brave, it is a mine of opportunity.

Rich in deposits of iron, nickle, iridium, pallidium, gold, and countless other rare elements not found in high concentrations on terrestrial worlds such as magnesium, osmium, ruthenium, rhodium and platinum.

The Yugumo Corporation has established a claim to begin mining in the Gensou Belt before YE 44.

The Presence of the Star Army of Yamatai

In YE 42, the First Expeditionary Fleet moved Legacy Bastion (Katsuko no Iori) into the system. Legacy Bastion serves the following roles:

  • Shipyard
  • Defense Base (Local Region: Yugumo Cluster)
  • Future base of operations for planned colonization and resource extraction ventures in the system.

The Star Army of Yamatai has several "Guriddo" Defense System in the system, and it is regularly patrolled by the First Expeditionary Fleet and the Tenth Fleet.

Exports and Trade

The Gensou System is rich in natural resources. Currently, it has no exports or trade, however, the system is on the Yugumo Corporation plans for the future colony and facility expansion.
