I'm a big fan. The one point I'd like to see expanded upon is Taron's internal politics during the war. Biased though I may be, it seems strange that they didn't even consider rejoining SolGov when faced with such a massive internal struggle. Regulation might be bad for profits, but so is widespread socialist revolution.

Also useful would be a general location for your system (core-mid-rim and neighbors). In particular (although this is kind of esoterica at this point), Shelf and Casini's Reach are pretty thoroughly separated by SolGov space, which would probably make trade with them pre-SEO rather difficult (although if it's at a halfway point, it could be an important stopover point!).

Okay, trade with Eutopia and Shelf would work better with the location we worked out, and that edit's been made.

As for internal politics - The biggest reason why Sol couldn't intervene, even if they'd wanted to, was that they were busy with the Unathi war. I've made some edits as to why Taron didn't desire intervention, too. The main reason was a combination of overconfidence and very bad intel, powered by a bit of delusion. They seriously underestimated the fighting strength of the stations and their ability to unite after the opening moves, especially given that it was essentially room-to-room urban combat with the spacers on the defensive. Intelligence-wise, the few reports of battles between security and rebels were blown out of proportion by planetary authorities. These clashes were the exception, but Artemis and the Espatiers acted assuming they were the rule, and that they would have much more support than was really present.

Of course, by the time planetary authorities started to realize that Solar intervention may have preserved their rule rather than ending it, Sol was at war with the Unathi and had no intentions of involving itself in a civil war clear on the other side of human space.

Probably the places page, which seems to be missing a lot.
