Eta Draconis – A Cause for Celebration

In the Star & Garter bar on Fisk Port, the atmosphere was one of celebration in light of the latest local news bulletins. Gold Vision Co, with the help of the 8th Dragon Squadron, had successfully won their long campaign to bring Eta Draconis under the charter of the Alliance of Independent systems.
