The Moebius Belt is Endomar‘s largest asteroid belt. Most of the bodies in this area orbit at an inclination of almost 20 degrees the ecliptic plane of the system. The revolution of Alpha Endomar and Beta Endomar causes the asteroid ring to twist braidlike in its orbit-hence the name. Most of Endomar’s space- based industry and settlement can be found in this region of the system.
The Moebius Belt is unusual in that it receives a great deal of insolation for an asteroid belt, placing it at the fringes of the habitability zone. Organic molecules in this region have actually evolved into space-based life adapted to microgravity and vacuum. Most of these creatures are harmless diaphanous organisms of living gas. Other creatures-such as the sailors and jetters that leap from asteroid to asteroid across thousands of kilometers of open space-are much more tangible.
At least one denizen of the Moebius Belt is dangerous to man. The spikespore is a voracious predator that preys on any carbon-based lifeform. It has the nasty habit of hitch-hiking on passing ships in a dormant stage, only to awaken and attack days or weeks later Many of the miners and travelers who vanish in the Endomar system each year undoubtedly fall victim to this monster.
