The Call of Ares is a trade ship that joined the Fleet with the Athena's Light. Before the war, it ferried goods between the Colonies but also did a lot of business with outlying colonies, moons, space stations, and mining ships where a greater profit could be made. Since the war it has performed much the same function. The Fleet has needs. Supply is low and demand is high. The Call of Ares has become a bustling market and commercial hub, second only to the Aerilon Star.
