Main Connecting Starting


Skinner is the second moon of Toshiko, in the Music System. It's a nondescript world, with no atmosphere or really any distinguishing features. It was colonised to act as a heavy-industry centre near to the pleasant world of Livingstone.

The main port, New Southampton, is rather run down, having not seen much investment since the early days. This is starting to change, though, with the Empire cut off from the large-scale production facilities at Sol.

Other settlements on Skinner include a government-run advanced robotics research facility, a penal colony, and a Lamidav mining settlement. It is rumoured that there are criminal settlements on the planet.
