Tanery Base Shuttleport was a military shuttleport that served as Regent Aral Vorkosigan's headquarters during Vordarian's Pretendership, located in a district some distance south of Vorbarra's District. Over a decade later, it was still in operation and used to transfer military personnel from the planet to their warships.
Behind the scenesEdit
The author made this statement during a reread of the Vorkosigan Saga on August 12, 2016 (comment 51):
Tanery Base is in an unnamed district due south of the VK District, therefore very far south of the planetary and district capital Vorbarr Sultana. (Which is a couple of districts due N. of the VKs.) Cordelia’s route to it is roughly a wide loop to the west and south. (She can’t go that far east because there’s an ocean.)
