While Stanton may be contemplated as the birthplace of Brigade its members are often fairly hushed about the idea. There are some beautiful vistas and enigmatic space but the underlying crime and grime cannot be shaken. Whilst members' interests in the system increase so might their awareness do the same.

Crusader admits crime is rising around its territory and it is clear to most that they are unable to police it. There's no Advocacy here and with security decisions made on what is the most cost-effective for Crusader, the public are getting poor service. Pirates, lovingly known as 'rats' fester around the communication arrays, scavengers, coldly truncated to 'scavs' tend to shoot first to protect their wreck raiding and forgetting to lock your ship's door brings only grief to your day as someone pilfers it. Or hell, blows it up for the larks.
