(1133 Gateway, 0303 Ariel; A996220-F)

An independent system in the Ariel subsector jointly managed by representatives of the Galian Federation and by the system's own native, non-human civilization, the Faar.  The class A starport designates the human construct known as Faarview, an orbital colony/station circling Mashan, the system's primary gas giant.

Alphaaric is inhabited by the Faar, a highly advanced civilization which, for various reasons, has never bothered to develop jump drive or to explore beyond its own world.  Human studies of the Faar are continuing.  In the meantime, a brisk and highly lucrative trade in high-tech electronics, novelties, and recreational devices continues between Galian traders and the Faar Domains.
