New Ceres system has long been the center of attention because of an ancient structure orbiting Ceres-3. Many researchers have tried to identify the purpose of this structure, but strong interference and gravitational anomalies do not allow them to study it in detail. The only thing that scientists know about the structure is that it belonged to a hitherto unknown race.
The asteroid belt close to Ceres-3 is extremely rich in minerals and is constantly being mined by several large processing stations. The stations themselves are a stage of ever-raging fights between free mercenaries hired by competing corporations.
