The 26th century is dominated by intense competition between planets for profitable interstellar trade. As a result of this competition, planets have invested huge fortunes in the creation of massive space harbors to increase traffic. The Port Town space harbor, for example, has been built with newest technological and aesthetic refinements in mind. This multilayered structure is centered around a massive structure towering three miles above the ground and is the largest space harbor in the universe. Port Town has been in every game in the series since F-Zero.
