Part 6: Mission 7

Meridian – Capital planet of the Aurelia Sub-sector, Meridian is a hive world famed for the production output of its forges, in particular the ancient and powerful Angel Forge that produced weapons that brought down the Hive Fleet that threatened the entire sub-sector. Though it has stood firm against the great threats that bore down on it, the planet's maze-like Hive cities have made it all too easy for all manner of traitor and alien to escape retribution. Orks in particular are a tremendous problem for the planet, being that their obsessions with looting result in many pilfered pieces of important infrastructure.
