Arasmus IX is a planet made up of a group of asteroids held together with a tenuous gravitational field (it was originally thought to be a gas giant). Manticore was part of a diplomatic mission to Arasmus IX on SD 49810.05 to help set up a new Federation embassy there. Unfortunately, the local population is quite unstable as a diplomat was killed, onboard the ship, and we had to keep a local diplomat from destroying his own home world with some of our own quantum torpedos. Manticore departed on SD 49811.02, with trade discussions open between the Federation and the Arasmusians, but the embassy plans are on hold.
