Setec is a gas giant circling around the white dwarf Setec, just inside the
Palvar Sector and near the mysterious Minar Sector. Setec houses the Palvar
Sector's third largest local corporation, Setec Astronomy, which builds and
sells ion drive engines to both Kashan Systems and Wereling Spaceworks for
use in newly built starships. Setec Astronomy attempted to enter the
starship market with their Gates-class battle cruiser. They completed five
of the warships before they realized no one was going to buy them. A sixth
cruiser, only half built, remains that way, orbiting the planet (note that
Setec claims that there is some sort of impressive planetary defense weapon
mounted in the partially built superstructure, although there is no proof to
this). The five completed Gates are maintained by Setec Astronomy for the
sole purpose of defending their factory stations which orbit the planet.
Setec has no real interest in Setec XI, other than the fact that they are
able to mine several gases valuable to them from the gas giant then ship it
directly to the factories in orbit above.
The star system itself lies on the border to the Minar Sector, a relatively
unexplored region of space in the Mid Rim. The majority of the Mid Rim was
mapped during the days of the Old Republic, but all ships sent into the
Minar Sector have never returned and the Old Republic deemed this region of
space hostile, and created a sector that consisted of all the uncharted
space in this area, naming it after the the first exploration vessel to
enter the area, the Del Minar. There are literally thousands of legends and
stories about the Minar Sector, ranging from tales of a highly advanced
civilization to a secret Imperial weapons development area to a cover up of
an Old Republic's testing of an extremely powerful weapon. None have any
proof to back them up. The only reason that Setec Astronomy's owners chose
to base operations from the system was that they someday might profit
heavily should Imperial laws prohibiting entry into the sector are lifted,
opening the doorways for new colonization and mining.
