Were you looking for info on the novella of the same name, Auberon, from the book series?

Auberon is a planet accessible through the ring gates.

Description[edit | edit source]

Auberon has a lush biome that grows native and Terran crops. The planet has 12 cities, each having populations in the millions but also has many towns, farms, and more scattered around the planet. Its capital was the city of Barradan where the Xi-Tamyan Agricultural Concern and governor's office are located.[1]

Reputedly, it has developed technology that converts local material to substances that Terrian biology can use. It served as Naomi Nagata's base of operations as the head of the Underground after the Slow Zone catastrophe.

The planet's moon has a lunar base that transports its goods throughout the Auberon system.

History[edit | edit source]

Before Laconia's capture of the slow zone, Auberon's population was developing a universal polypeptide cross-generator. This was a mechanism that would convert biospheres into one that humans would be able to eat from. With this technology, it was believed that within ten to fifteen years that this would allow Auberon to bypass the Sol system's monopoly on soil and farming substrates.[2] After the Earth-Mars Coalition Navy and Transport Union forces were completely defeated by the Laconian battleship Heart of the Tempest, Auberon was one of the early supporters of the new Laconian regime.[3]

Biryar Rittenaur is appointed the Laconian governor of the planet by high consul Winston Duarte. His wife, Mona Rittenaur leads the research into developing soil compatibility between that of the planet and of Earth.
