(Aquarius - Core) Lorentis System

A Former Core World of the Old Federation, Lorentis was the birthplace of the Terran Loyalists that would eventually rebuilt Aquarius, forming the United Aquarian Systems in 4299 A.D. The system is now the proud Capitol System of the UAS.

After the Unity Act of 4350 A.D, the Lorentis System shifted from a Federal Democracy to a more centralised authoritarian System, ultimately becoming the Capitol System of the Aquarian Terran Imperial States that formed officially in 4401 A.D, marking the beginning of the Imperial Era.

The Lorentis System is the New Capitol of the United Aquarian Systems and Aquarian Terran Imperial States Government. The system was discovered by Old Federation Deep-Space exploration probes in 2340 A.D (102 F.D.S), and targeted for settlement due harbouring the semi-garden world of the same name. The first colony was established in 2369 A.D (131 F.D.S), on the surface of the planet and a formal government was erected. Later in the same cycle, the Lorentian Republic was formally ratified into the Unified Terran Nations, soon becoming one of the three Core Worlds of the Old Federation.

After the Fall of the Old Federation in 4040 A.D, Lorentis's habitable world was spared total destruction by its strong magnetic fields, allowing much of the surface and orbital infrastructure to survive intact. It was this natural miracle by which the Lorentian Republic government remained functional and was able to maintain law and order into the new, uncertain future. The Lorentis System is the birthplace of the Terran Loyalist Alliance; formed from the Lorentian Republic and the remains of the Old Federal Navy that survived in the shadow of the system. When the TLA transitioned into the United Aquarian Systems, marking the beginning of the New Federal Era in 4299 A.D, Lorentis remained the Capitol world.

Today, the system is the Heart of Aquarius and the seat of power of the entire Cluster. Lorentis serves as the Capitol and Central Government for both the United Aquarian Systems and the Aquarian Terran Imperial States governments. Though ATIS maintains a large military presence in the system - like all core worlds - it is officially under the jurisdiction of the civilian UAS government.

A.R.A.S Orbital Platforms are a series of Arvalt-class Orbital Infrastructure Stations connected by a modular array of suspension scaffolds. The platforms are perhaps the most famous in the Core Worlds, hosting the Imperial Navy's primary Dry and Wet docks, A.R.A.S also has an extensive civilian and commercial shipping platform and trading facility, a sprawling orbital metropolis of shopping centres, theme parks, consumerist attractions and residential areas. At over 25 KM from lower mast to upper, the A.R.A.S is the largest space-borne structure in Aquarius, with the highest human population. She is often considered a symbol of human achievement.

|| DESCRIPTION:
Fort Lorentis A is a Glacier-class Weapons Platform, officially designated an Orbital Defence Installation or Battlestation by the Aquarian Imperial Navy. She was laid down in 2385 A.D during the construction of the A.R.A.S orbital facility over Lorentis. The fledgling colony was of high importance to the Old Federation, and the presence of Fort Lorentis A reflects that. The Platform has been upgraded and refitted countless times over the centuries, ultimately being almost rebuilt entirely by the Aquarian Imperial Navy that inherited the facility in 4402 A.D. Currently, Fort Lorentis A is equipped with some of the most powerful long-range inter-planetary firepower ever deployed in space, as such, she stands a stalwart guardian of the Heart of Aquarius, and a staging point for the Imperial First Fleet, ready to repel any and all who would threaten the Terran seat of power. and the mighty A.R.A.S Platform herself.
