"Ariel's quite a nice place actually. There's some beautiful museums, not to mention some of the finest restaurants in the Core."
― Inara in "Ariel"

Ariel is a planet that is known for its technology, mostly in its fine medical facilities. These facilities boast of the latest and most high-grade medical technology, such as holographic scanners. Ariel also is home to extremely good restaurants that people from all over the 'verse come to dine at. Most of the best chefs in the 'verse either come from Ariel, or relocate their restaurants to Ariel. There is restricted landing on Ariel and only those who have legitimate business in the area may land. However, if you give a presence of belonging, no one will ask many questions.
