In medieval times, surfs and town’s folk had their castles for protection. In the old West, on the frontier, the pioneers had military forts. As pioneers moved out into space the same was required for them as had been for other pioneers of the past. As in the past this task fell to the military. It did not matter that the military was an inadequately trained nor had the funding for this enormous task, the people that were going out into space wanted some protection or they would not go, and politicians also wanted this protection so that the people would want to go into space due to the overcrowding on earth, even though most of this protection was nothing more than smoke and mirrors. These space outposts became safety zones to the various space faring Pioneers. It wasn't enough. As in the past evil preyed on the weak and defenseless. That is about to change.
