Driaan II, the second planet in the Driaan System, is a class F world rich in hydrogen compounds within the atmosphere, it is also volcanically active. There are several mining stations built to withstand the uninhabitable surface conditions for the purpose of mining various materials. All but two of the mining stations are owned by private investors, a common thread in the Driaan System - the other two are owned by the Driaan Government.


Driaan itself was an idea in formation before the Federation had signed its charters in 2161 - an Australian colony vessel to settle the stars, utilising cryogenics and a Noah's Ark design philosophy. Horses, live-stock, hundreds of entire families with resources to build again coaxed into a one large colony vessel for its time and sent forth...

The colony vessel did not make it to its intended target nor did the crew wake when intended and drifted further towards Orion space. There, decades overdue to an incorrect destination they settled the Driaan System.

The fifth planet was M-class and thus first settled, however it was found that the system in all its bodies was rich in natural resources; rare and beautiful diamonds from the Fifth Planets extinct moon - exotic gases from the gas giant, abundant metals from asteroid belts. The colony thrived over the next century.
