3025 – Planet Qalzi
Coreward Peripherary, The Aurigan Coalition
The planet Qalzi, ruled by House Atreides and located on the Eastern fringe of the Aurigan Coalition bordering the Taurian Concordat, has come under increasing raids by unknown Periphery pirates and raiders. The Taurian Concordat, one time rulers of the planet, have also been making overtures for the return of their 'colony'. While the Qalzi Defense Force is a growing military formation, it is not yet large enough to cover all critical areas. The planetary ruler, Count Phalan Atreides has authorized the hiring of mercenary units to fill ths gaps.
