Hmm. Now I'm starting to see a world that plugs into Barnard's Star, Barnard Belt, and the volatile shortages.

A beefy super-terrestrial planet with limited permafrost reserves would be hard to access during the First Federation, so the system description of being volatile-poor doesn't need to change. By the time it's easier to regularly access super-terrestrials, a clade of high-G tweaks might've monopolized the world and its resources.

And the planet would make a good shepherd for the system's asteroid belt.

I'll finish up Gearhead...soon...and get to work on something for Barnard's World.

No, "van de Kamp's World"! That's gotta be the name.
