Stoketown Station

Post by dragoner » Tue Jun 25, 2019 10:55 pm

Stoketown Station is a regular stop for many spacecraft, nominally a refinery, it is rumored to be a pirate's port as well. Vijaya is short on metals:

Heavy element abundance: 48% of Sol
Standard error in heavy element abundance: 13%
Source for heavy element abundance: Strobel [Fe/H] Determinations

So the refinery part does operate at a medium capacity, and seekers (type S converted to mining craft) travel from the Malai belt to Stoketown to get their ore refined and sold. Technically registered with the Diamond Thunderbolt Vajra, the station is run independently, left alone while it makes it's tax payments. While the station orbits in a Molniya orbit pattern at over 30,000kph, at around 36,000km from the planet. A crude slip-field generates an orthogonal force (gravity) of .5G. Movement in orbit is provided by large VASIMR engines at the top or bottom.
