Metternick Station

Metternick Station is orbital station placed above Venus. It is of an axial Stanford torus design, being 12 kilometers in diameter and constructed around a spoked axial hub. The station itself is rotated in order to generate gravity (roughly equivalent to 1G at the outer most areas). It size allows for a population of over 50,000 sleeves (bodies), however its current population is much lower.

The station was constructed by Faldon Incorporated and several venture partners in order to be a staging post for mining exploration and intrasolar shipping. It operates under a charter arrangement with Venus’ newly formed government the Morningstar Constellation which provide mining rights in return for a fee and freedom from most of the Planetary Consortium’s tariffs.

The Station is overseen by Director Samson Rhyder and a Virtual Intelligence known as Mett.

As at AF 10, the Station is still under construction (although the super structure and primary areas are completed).
