Three distinct asteroid belts around Barnard's Star, formed at various distances due to harmonic relationships between the asteroids and the single planet (Van de Camp's World).

Barnard's Star remains a wealthy, independent but somewhat disreputable location in the Inner Sphere. The Water Wars were a series of important events in this system's early history.

Factions which have played a part in the Barnard Belt's long history include the DPR Spores, the Kuiper Comet Shepherds, the Hot Beam Transportation Ltd., the League of Legitimate Businessbeings and The Dustbunnies.
