The Duro System resides in the Corellian Sector, the only sentient species being the adventurous Duros living on the world of Duro. This system saw space ship traffic very early on with the Duros discovering space travel fairly early on in the history of its civilization. Humans were probably the first foreign sentient species to visit this system, a team of Old Republic surveyors and then a year later several diplomats from the same organization. After speaking to the Duro leaders, the Old Republic diplomats were able to convince the Duro System to join the Republic, allowing the Duro people to easily export some of their local goods to the outside galaxy. It was also about this time that the humans realized the Duros were far superior navigators than they are, and Duros started to be seen on ships as the captains’ first mates commonly.
The Duro System space is a hazardous place to maneuver for those visiting for the first time. Random rocks large and small, in no commonly recognized formation such as asteroid fields, scatter about the system space. No one quite knows how these space debris came about, though the most highly support theory is that these may be pieces of satellite moon, or moons, as they collided with the passing by planet Legonstar. It is advised for travelers to check in with the Duro traffic control authority as the travel first drops out of hyperspace near the Duro System. The Duros have carefully set beacons on most of the larger pieces of space debris so that sensors on ships can easily pick them up and allow the ships captains to plot a safe course around them. By contacting the traffic control, it will be able to provide you with the frequency that the beacons emit, allowing the travelers to best tune their sensor to pick up the signs of the larger space debris before they pose any danger to his or her space craft. Duro ships’ sensors, naturally, are usually already tuned to best receive these signals.
This system is generally regarded as a very safe place for civilian traffic. Duros are a very peaceful species, and CorSec has patrols into this system on a frequent basis.
