With huge help of wombat1940 I'm doing for few months updates to the crossfire systems in wiki here on portal. Part of this is creation of descriptions for all CF Systems which should reflect SP and also MP matters. Some of systems however are "tough", especially in case when they should fit into Freelancer/Crossfire existing lore. We did nice progress with this, but now we reached Freeport 7 system and this place is starting point for all this story in Freelancer/Crossfire ... however Freeelancer lore here is different (FL wikia link)
Initial description idea:
This is the System where Trent commenced his epic journey. It was at station Freeport-7, built by the Zoners in an unnamed System, located in the outer ring of the Border Worlds, which later (much later) became named as Freeport 7. Exact position of this station, together with the existence of this System and how to access the same, was not made public. Many thought that this station is/was in the Sigma 17 System, and it was exactly this that the Zoners wanted. No one, except maybe a selected few, knew about the existence of an unknown jump gate, located on the opposite side of the big suns in this System. The gate seemed to be nonfunctional. After the station's destruction, there were even less reason to reveal the truth to the public; and those who had knowledge or suspicions were silenced one way or another.
Later, after the public revelation of the existence of X-3043, it were found not only ruins of the Freeport_7 station, but also a small number of jump-holes leading to other Systems. One of these led to the Frankfurt System, which was most likely the path used in the past by the Zoners, when they first found the Freeport 7 System.
Some question which appeared when discussed this with Ajay:
