The Vlugta Asteroid Field is a neutral asteroid belt located in the Bajor Sector and a site of on going dilithium mining.

System Description

The Vlugta belt is a metal- and mineral-rich ring of asteroids under the control of the Vlugta government. Rather than engage in the expensive process of mining and refining the asteroids themselves, the Vlugta lease out sections to individual investors. Since the Vlugta remain a small regional power, they avoid contracts with larger governments like the Federation or the Klingon Empire. The result is a wide collection of individual prospectors and small-claims miners who all pay the Vlugta government for the privilege of hunting for useful ore, dilithium, or strange substances. As the asteroids in the field average 400 m. in size, they do not support any known life forms. Prospectors must rely on EV Suits, hand-held scanners and mining lasers, and a good deal of luck.

History

  • Isihl, a Ferengi investor, is the owner of the mineral rights to at least one of the asteroids in the belt.
