System Alaska played an important role during end stages of the Freelancer story and later in the Crossfire story. It is a place where players can find clues leading them back to the home of humankind - the Sol System. Most of Alaskan space is filled with an un-named, dense asteroid field with a deadly central Sun which emits extraordinarily strong radiation. Two big orbital installations are located in the south-eastern part of this System, both controlled by the Liberty Navy. The first installation is the Juneau Shipyard which serves for capital ship production, and the second is Sidewinder Station (known in the past as Station Mitchell) with both having restricted access. It is rumoured that Navy is using Sidewinder Station as a prison and a research station.
In the recent past, Juneau provided MP with a home for a mercenary organisation called the Knights of Mercy (|PX|Clan). They used the jump gate to the X-3043 System, and the hidden jump-hole in the Alaskan asteroid cloud leading to the Midpoint Rift System, for fast access to many other Systems in the Sirius Sector. They were a very well organised guild which was often used by police and conversely criminals but for very high remuneration.
