The Humbarine system is located in the dead centre of Bothan Space; if there were a capital to the sector, this would be it. The star is a medium sized sun estimated to be about seventy-six millions year old. The rest of the system is mostly inhabited with Bothans, though now many smuggler and transport pilots frequently pass through it.
Ten years ago, the Humbarine system was hit by a meteorite storm, leaving a lot of destruction in its wake. The Bothan people have since that time rebuilt nearly everything that was destroyed. It is projected that Both will be hit by another meteorite storm within thirty-four years, but the Bothans will be ready for the next one.
The Humbarine system is fairly secure thanks to the Bothan navy patrolling it, but every now and then a few pirates will slip in. Some people think this is much more than a coincidence; the Bothan people are very well known for their spying and some believe they have secretive contacts within several pirate groups. The average visitor to Humbarine would not believe this to be true, due to the many security checks travellers must undergo.
