A first mission for our nameless spygirl
In a remote quadrant of the Qualegia Star System, revolving around a nameless white dwarf star was a substantial asteroid, known as M.000287.403. It would have been a worthless piece of real estate were it not for the fact that it occupied a point in space about midway between the home system of the Atla'an Empire and its distant colonies in the Begelius Minor Star System. Here the Empire had placed a relay/amplifier station for its trans-galactic hyper-speed neutrino data stream, which kept even the farthest parts of the Empire a mere solar day apart for communications purposes. Without this station, it would take weeks or perhaps months for a message to get this far out, severely impairing the Empire's ability to maintain control. And therein lay M.000287.203's importance. It's location was a very closely guarded secret; it was so isolated, no one would discover it by accident.
