Sol Teraport Interdiction Zone
The Teraport Area Denial (TAD) system in place in the SOL system, protecting Earth.
S.T.I.Z. is short for Sol Teraport Interdiction Zone, and is pronounced "stiz." It's the zone in which the UNS TAD systems prevent anyone from teraporting in. A lot of money has been spent on making the S.T.I.Z. very, very LARGE, so that any object successfully teraporting in is still several light-hours away from Earth 2003-08-05.
