Silver Age Beyond
New Malta is Aden’s moon, terraformed as a military outpost during the Second Republic, and currently used as an Imperial Guard training facility. The moon’s remoteness allows the guards to practice elite infantry, cavalry and naval maneuvers, far from potential spies.

Imperial ships routinely monitor the spaceways near the planet to dissuade would-be visitors.
