The Malon have a fragile economy, and to supplement costs various waste disposal shortcuts have been em-ployed to dispose of their dangerous toxic waste, generated by their antimatter power generator systems used in industry. These shortcut protocols are often harmful to the environment, but are an economic necessity, they deem. Although technologically advanced, the Malon lack the technology, and perhaps the inclination, to recycle their antimatter waste more efficiently and safely, for it emits dangerous levels of theta radiation. Their current solution is to thus dispose of it in open space.
The Malon Heavy Industry Complex generates an impressive industrial output, and is the backbone of Malon Prime's economy. However, the antimatter generators that power such an infrastructure produce dangerous toxic by-products, which the Malon lack the technology to dispose of safely.
The Malon homeworld controls the exchange rate for many goods throughout the quadrant. Malon traffickers deal in these goods, ensuring the profitability of both home-based businesses, and foreign interests.
