Pender's Star is an uninhabited star system in the Humboldt Quadrant of the Gemini Sector. A territory of the Confederation, the system served as a transfer station between the heavily trafficked Troy and Junction systems, making it a vital link for Gemini's commercial interests despite the presence of an asteroid field directly between the two jump points (which itself was a favorite ambush point for pirates and Retros wanting to make easy targets of Gemini's merchantmen).
