PLANETARY DETAILS:
New Aragon was colonized as part of a land scam during the twenty-third century. The planet was cast as a world with "fertile ground and abundant water" to lure buyers, when in fact most of New Aragon's two continents of Glastonbury and Dreymon were predominately swamps. To make matters worse, the land was infested with insect-like creatures carrying more diseases than could be counted.

In spite of this, the colonists drained the swamplands, leaving what proved to be dynamically fertile land that was able to sustain a large farming population. Additionally, the native amphibian life became a delicacy that was soon exported as gourmet items. In addition, New Aragon became a leading center for medical research. The capital of Argos, located on the continent of Glastonbury, is home to the New Aragon Institute of Epidermiology - a leading Inner Sphere medical research facility.

Of course, New Aragon has also seen its share of military action. When Davion forces, lead by Marshal Peter Davion captured New Aragon in 2930, the people rebelled against their new masters. It was not until 3013, with Hanse Davion as Military Governor, that the AFFS restored order; Prince Hanse earned his nickname "The Fox" whilst on New Aragon. The world's people have been staunch supporters of House Davion ever since.

EMPLOYER SITUATION REPORT:
Although the border between the Federated Suns and the Confederated Systems of Tikonov has stabilized, there is still a lot of tension and military activity. Raiders using dropships, fighters and small craft been hitting jumpship convoys. Taking jumpship and dropship prizes, they then hop back over the border and escape. These might be CSoT naval units, but they also might be pirates exploiting a chaotic border situation, or both. But the number of attacks in this region has spiked significantly.

Recently, New Aragon's Zenith Recharge Station experienced a raid. A contingent of troops snuck aboard the station, crippled the station's power and stole a docked Buccaneer-class dropship. The firefight was extensive and the station suffered casualties and some internal damage. The raiders escaped with their prize.

Since this attack and other attacks on jumpship shipping in the system, both civilian and military authorities are in an uproar. So is Vice Admiral Lon Nordeen, the Recharge Station's commanding officer.

The AFFS has decided to hire a mercenary command to bolster the station's defenses and to augment the security of the Zenith Jump Point over New Aragon.

Some Naval Service assets such as combat dropships and naval fighter squadrons will be conducting patrols. But they will be moving from system to system along the border as well as focusing on convoy escort and planetary defense duties. Your presence is intended to be more fixed at the Zenith Jump Point and so day-to-day patrol and defensive duties will be your responsibility.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Defend the Zenith Recharge Station and all associated shipping
2) Defend the Zenith Jump Point

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Capture raiders if possible, for interrogation
2) Boost confidence in civilian shipping in this area
