A settlement in the Attican Traverse.

The Ministauri's Rest Trading Post was founded after the Reaper War, though its origins date to the conflict itself. A turian-built freighter, having finished discharging on-planet, failed to gain the necessary lift and crashed back to the surface. Salvage operations soon became semi-permanent camps as people sought a low-profile hiding place, fearful of attacks from Reapers or their indoctrinated allies. Several dozen people were stranded here when the Crucible fired, and over the following months the semi-functional home they had built within the ship became a draw for others. Materials and components needed elsewhere were traded in exchange for commodities that made life easier while those residing here decided what to do with themselves. Some never moved on, and others arrived to seek shelter or work, or else to set up shop once it became clear that certain people were making regular visits, bringing with them goods worth buying and the right kind of desperation.

A series of campsites and survival domes were assembled on the rocky plain around the defunct spaceship. Defensive turrets were erected, though they're far from state of the art. Should anyone with notable firepower wish the outpost gone, they likely wouldn't have much of a problem bringing that state of affairs about. No-one in the area would wish that, though, even if they possessed the power (itself unlikely). The Trading Post has taken on the air of a forum, in which representatives from each struggling colony and formerly stranded outfit gather to form plans, trading not only in small quantities of goods but in half-baked if earnest plans for the future. The trading post has become a hub in the loose and struggling society that endures in this part of the Traverse.
