Acheron, owing to its location at the nexus of several well-traveled Slipstream routes, was for centuries the site of a major Argosy Corps of Engineers-designed High Guard Lancer Corps base and logistics center. Seized by the Nietzscheans at the start of their insurrection, the planet has been held by them ever since, and used by the Drago-Kazov Pride to control access to important sections of the Andromeda Galaxy. Any travelers passing through Cestus Martialis must pay tribute to the Drago-Kazov or be fired upon by the missile batteries located throughout the system. The planet's small population (Drago-Kazov Nietzscheans and their human slaves) exists mainly to collect revenue and enforce the blockade.
- Acheron is a river located in Greece, which in mythology was known as the "river of woe", one of the 5 rivers of Hades, the underworld.
