After the cataclysm of Ryboth, all contact with mining station Tranthos Gamma ceased until the arrival of the Explorator expedition. Though the station appeared to have suffered no significant damage from the event, the crew was nowhere to be found. Mining operations eventually resumed, though the current inhabitants must often endure long periods of isolation as gases are shipped to nearby forge worlds for refinement and processing. Tales of misfortune, crews going mad, disappearances, recurrent freak accidents, and other, more sinister occurrences are rife and keep the overseers busy within the facility. However, despite these reports, the station remains operational, and a vital holding for the Lathes.
