|Locations: Sector M45 Brutus|
New Unified Government Sector Headquarters
Seat of the Sector Forum
New Unified Space Forces Base
A small Factory Satellite, originally used for producing Riigado [Regult] Battle Pods. It's currently used for producing consumer goods, VFs and shuttles, but not much more. It provides for Caesar's needs, as well as trade goods with the smaller colonies and settlements.
Brutus is the location of the City 15 Replica, a replica of the M15 Fleet's City 15. It has a large population living within it, facilitating trade, manufacturing and so on. It serves as the seat of the sector forum (like ASEAN, it doesn't have any *real* power, and is mostly a forum to discuss sector-wide problems, trade and making recommendations). The city is considered to be neutral territory under the jurisdiction of the New Unified Forces (NUNS).
Civilians call City 15 Replica home, as they make their careers and lives beneath the dome. Military personnel spend their off-duty hours playing in the city, exploring the avenues and seeking diversion.
In addition to serving as the seat of the sector forum, Brutus is also the headquarters of the sector New Unified Government.
like that in M7/25.
Education: like that in M7/25.
Economy: the Factory Satellite is used to provide for Caesars needs, as well as trade goods with the smaller colonies and settlements.
Government: democratic to a fault - decisions are slow as politicians are self-serving and corrupt. People are apathetic toward voting due to the corruption and sense of nothing ever getting done.
It is also the headquarters of the sector New Unified Government, and is the seat of the sector forum (like ASEAN, it doesn't have any *real* power, and is mostly a forum to discuss sector-wide problems, trade and making recommendations).
Ambassador: under investigation
The main political leader(s): Mayor under investigation
small detachment of NUNS, mostly used for defending the Factory Satellite and occasionally dispatched to police the sector.
Top military leader: under investigation
Ship most likely to be deployed in an emergency: CG-420 H. Ito (a NUNS Cruiser), captained by Commodore Daniels, Jack
New Unified Government; though strong economic and political ties with Caesar.
How Perceived Others: looks down on the other colonies (including Caesar) as rural rednecks and considers themselves to be the best in the sector.
How Perceived By Others: seen as lazy, corrupt and snobbish - and too scared to let go of the familiar and face the natural elements in the sector.
- the M15 fleet drops half of its population off on Caesar, and after losing too many messages because of things like fold faults, the colonists pretty much settled down.
- the Factory Satellite discovered in orbit is salvaged and reconstruction begins.
- due to the situation, large groups left to found the other major colonies shortly thereafter.
- Factory Satellite begins operations
- construction on City 15 Replica Begins.
- construction of the City 15 Replica is completed.
- the population has increased dramatically after almost 15 years of relative peace and stability.
approx. 325,000 microns (431,681 in 2069)
The City 15 Replica's interior design is a combination of old world and new world in many ways. The vast majority of buildings are of a modern 21st century design, with holographic advertisements dotting walls and pavements through out the districts devoted to shopping and business. However, in the more exclusive area's of the city, older design styles, dating back several hundred years, are evident. The best example of this are the museums of the City 15 Replica, which follow the example of the large, old style buildings of London, and other European cities.
There are various types of mass transit in the city, from buses to subway-like cars riding in unpressurized tubes. Moving about the city is quite easy and cheap via mass transit. A lot of residents also have personal vehicles. Almost all vehicles are able to travel in space, though riders of motorcycles need a spacesuit. Many vehicles are also able to hover and briefly fly inside the City 15 section.
Map of City 15:
City 15 Replica has the same street and dome organization as City 15, however there isn't a Battle class ship attached to the front. The entire thing is built into the top of the Brutus Factory Satellite.
Area's/Districts of City-15 and notable locations within them:
Divided into the following districts:
Bayside: top class shopping malls, next to a bay on the lake in the city.
Business: central business district and shops.
Central: middle class residential area, shopping malls & services.
City Defence: City 15 Replica Defence Force Base
Downtown: Shops & lower middle class residential area
Farringdon: upper middle class residential area
Geffrin: working class residential area
Kenrowe: middle Class residential area
Romama: middle Class residential area
Sub-domes attached surrounding the outside of the City 15 Replica. These do not have an armoured shield that can be closed over them.
Azair: lower middle class residential
Farling: lower middle class residential
Newton: upper middle class residential
Kawachi Sub-dome: rundown industrial/slum. Some distance from the City 15 Replica proper.
The exterior of the upper surface of the Factory Satellite also has some sub-domes, too. They were the original city sections before the colonists decided to build a replica of City 15 on the surface. They are generally the same as the outer domes of the City 15 Replica and are in poorer states. Some have even been purchased outright by private corporations, industries or even individuals! In general, more nefariuous activities tend to occur in these outlying districts.
Abu Zaad - Lebanese restaurant
Bay Lead Restaurant - 5 Star restaurant
City-15 Bayside Stadium - A multipurpose stadium which is normally used for sporting and athletic events, however it was designed with adaptability in mind. The Bayside Stadium also commonly functions as a site for festivals, concerts and other large staged events.
Bill Gadsby's Doughnuts - A popular coffee-and-doughnut shop. Members of the 47 SIU have been known to stop in for coffee and a doughnut from time to time. Though black coffee and crullers remain its stock and trade, "Billy's" offers plenty of espresso, cappuccino, lattes and pastries for "sophisticated" customers.
La Marina - Waterfront bar and restaurant
The Icebox - Nightclub
Waterside Cafe - Cafe/Restaurant
Windgate Shopping Centre - A debate rages if Windgate truly is the largest indoor shopping centre in the fleet (Film Academy Mall claims to be larger.) Size aside, "Windgate Mall" offers a blend of exclusive shops, department stores and a variety of kiosks in its ample concourses. If an item may be purchased through legal channels, it will be for sale at the Windgate. At the heart of the Centre, is an internationally-scaled ice hockey rink that hosts plenty of pick-up games, youth competitions and free skates. Port of the rink is the mall's food court, with booths able to suit the tastes of shoppers from any culture. Anchoring the mall are four department stores, fore, aft, starboard and port. At the fore is the hallmark of high end department stores, Al-Fayed. At the opposite end, and nearly as exclusive, is Grace Brothers. Port features Klein's, specializing in home needs, sporting goods, tools and automotive work. The starboard anchor is the Harlot Megastore, specializing in music, media players, electronics and books.
Emeralds & Pearls - Cocktail Bar
Imperial Hotel - a Five-Star hotel
Winchester Steak House - perched at the top of the Imperial Hotel is its own five-star restaurant, the Winchester Steakhouse. The name Winchester fits, as the eatery slowly rotates above the top of the Macross 15 dome, providing an unparalleled view, save for the one from the City Hall. Though many think the name is a pun for the revolving restaurant, the owner, Harold Winchester, claims to be from Texas, though his passport gives a different name and land of birth (Argentina!) Though the fleet travels with a Sunny-flower to produce foods and clones animal tissues for meats, premium beef (including Kobe) remains something of a luxury, and the Winchester provides the best, within a luxurious atmosphere. The steakhouse operates its own organic and hydroponic farms for vegetables aboard the Sunny-flower, a cattle ranch, and purchases fish live from the Riviera 15 to store in tanks within the kitchen, ensuring the freshest seafood aboard the Macross 15. At the second floor, the Winchester offers diners an intimate venue to enjoy a quiet and romantic dessert within its dessert suites, offering the finest pastries anywhere, with coffees and liquors available at the press of a button. The Winchester is the final word in luxury in the fleet.

Equipped with two billiard tables, a table football set, darts and a jukebox, the thatched-roof "country pub" welcomes all-well almost all. Lampton, a rabid supporter of the Arsenal FC, welcomes Gunner fans from far and wide, but supporters of other clubs may find the service to be a bit slow.

It's said that Will English will fence anything that a man cares to steal, and will sell information to those he trusts, or who buy his services. Other than crime, English's is a fine place to pick up musical instruments, tools and jewellery.

Cafe Bomber - quietly nestled on one of the Subdome's busiest roads, is this quiet little cafe. Named for the infamous band Fire Bomber, every night is Karaoke Night starting at 7 PM; and open-mic for everything else is from 3 AM to 6:30 PM. Open 24/7, this place serves just about every alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink imaginable, including the best smoothies and milkshakes in the fleet, at reasonable prices.

The food is varied, with both comfort-food options and some of the latest health-food crazes on the menu at all times.
Surface Level - Higashi-Neyagawa Section
Bar Non3 - looks like a slightly gungier version of Tech-noir (from Terminator), but without the loud rock music. The interior of the bar is... scuzzy. It's well past it's glory years, and is the kind of place that you go to if you don't want to be noticed. Or, because it's the only one open early in the morning.
B1 Level - Higashi-Neyagawa Section: reknown for shady jewellery dealers
