The Nezu homeworld has been bombarded many times by asteroid and meteor collisions, scarring the surface. And it came to light that these collisions were a device of warfare, orchestrated by a neighbouring race with which they were in conflict with. The Nezu are a colonial race, and have aspirations to expand their people further into surrounding sectors.
The Nezu sustain an active trade link, which is cleverly facilitated by the use of orbital tethers. Goods can be transported between the surface and orbital platforms where cargo vessels are moored ready for launch. This system greatly improves delivery times, and hence the speed by which trade runs can be made, increasing profit for all.
To counter the threat of asteroid strikes, the Nezu have developed a highly sophisticated astronomical surveillance system, which allows them to chart the sky with tremendous accuracy and resolution. This powerful tool was origi-nally used for deep space observation, but the benefits of the survey for the military cannot be ignored.
