The Bandi are a technically unsophisticated race, but they are particularly interested in forming trade relations, due to their vast resources and current poor economic power. They are not inspired in cultural interchange, nor do they travel in space - they seem apparently quite satisfied with the planet on which they have evolved.
The Bandi are technologically unsophisticated, but they have a gift for architecture which cannot be overstated. The Architectural Centre brings this creative genius into focus, researching new ways to build familiar things.
Farpoint Station serves as a space port with all the expected amenities for such a facility, except for the vast ba-zaar that the Bandi operate in the central plaza. It serves as the market hub for all surrounding sectors, where every commercial venture imaginable is conducted.
