Nobody knows how they got here, but a group of humans has managed to settle on one of the more hospitable planets in the sector. The habitants are friendly, neutral and offer some services to travellers:
A stock exchange to trade standard goods
A shop selling weapons, armor and equipment
Mr. Grey is an old explorer. He was always very interested in alien culture, majoring in Xenoarcheology. He managed to get premium pay during his days with Eridiani explorations, and is spending his autumn years in this quiet little colony. Still interested in the art of aliens, if you have alien artifacts to sell, he is your man.
