Zarathustra was an uninhabited planet, and the Chartered Zarathustra Company owned it lock, stock and barrel. They developed it, exploited it, and reaped huge profits without any interference from the government. Then, out of nowhere, came Jack Holloway with a family of "Fuzzies," and a good deal of evidence that they were far more than cute, cuddly animals!
