Bekenstein Rises Again

By Iris Dunnigan

MILGROM, BEKENSTEIN- Some are calling Bekenstein the “Phoenix Colony” after its meteoric rise from the ashes of the Reaper Invasion. Unlike other key galactic trading centers such as Illium, enemy forces did not occupy the planet proper, choosing instead to bomb it from orbit. This sped up the liberation process and allowed for an early building boom.

Companies such as Ekloss Combine, Devlon Industries and Wise AgriCorp have set up headquarters in colonial capital of Milgrom, taking advantage of favorable tax rates; cheap labor and the protective umbrella of the Alliance Fleet station in the system (see Alliance 9th Fleet).

A mix of Asari, Batarians, Humans and Turians have flocked to the colony in hopes of finding work in colonial reconstruction. As a result violent crime is on the rise although the governor, Margaret Shay has dismissed these reports as, “The teething pains of a colony poised to become the new multicultural nexus of galactic commerce.”
