Vard is a methane-ammonia ice giant. Until the Krogan Rebellions it had a sizable helium-3 fuel-refining infrastructure. Once the solar arrays orbiting Nith were destroyed, the constant flow of antiproton tankers visiting the system disappeared. There was little point to maintaining the facilities, so they were shut down and abandoned. Today, transients, criminals, and outcasts are squatting in the ancient stations. Although few of the stations are safe for habitation, neither the krogan nor the Council Demilitarization Enforcement Mission patrols care if the squatters take their chances.
