Fresh Kills calls itself a “reclamation center.” That’s a fancy way of saying they’re a salvage base, which is still a nice euphemism for “pirate stronghold.” Not a small one, either—at least several thousand transhumans actually call this hive of scum and villainy home. Built around a central docking spindle, Fresh Kills serves as a starting and stopping point for scavengers and salvage crews in the Earth-Luna system, and sometimes ones ranging farther abroad as well. The base itself is at the far edge of the Earth-Luna L5 point from the Hexagon, but this proximity makes for some uneasy shuffling on both sides, especially given that Fresh Kills is also bristling with armaments. Ships going to and from either generally steer far clear of each other’s operations.
