Pradoxis Mining Station (PMS)

Location Name: Pradoxis Mining Station (PMS)

Galactic Location:

The Pradoxis Mining Station is found within the outer northeastern layers (~ 25% into) of the dangerous Argaron Nebula.

Description:

It seems that no expense was spared in the construction of the brand new Pradoxis Mining Station (PMS) – newest technology, some areas have the new construction smell. It was quickly erected, reinforced (nebula’s charged criticals is negated in the station), and brought into the nebula for mining and research by the Givin run Goota Mining Corporation (GMC) which is based out of Yag-dahl (L14).

The Station is separated into 3 basic sections:

  • Clean Quarter


    • Management Offices
    • Research Labs and Libraries
    • Station Tech Maintenance
    • Security
    • Quarters and Common Areas
  • Mining Quarter

    • Gas Mining
    • Gas Storage
    • Mechanical Maintenance
    • Security
    • Quarters and Common Areas
  • Dock Quarter

    • Clean Docks
    • Mining and Gas Docks
    • Ship Repair and Retrofit Shop
    • Security
    • Quarters and Common Areas

Its personnel are careful to follow security protocols especially when it comes to their research areas. They are not very welcoming of outsiders who have not been vetted by and approved of by corporate headquarters. They are rather suspicious of the intent of others when they arrive unannounced, although mathematicians and other non-threatening academics and researchers tend to have a slightly better reception.

Why is this Location Useful or Interesting?

  • Argaron Nebula research
  • Rare gasses
  • Access to the Giving Mining Corporation (GMC)
  • Access to high-tech proprietary gas mining gear
  • A really out-of-the-way place to hide

Normal Patrons: Who comes here and why?

The only people who are truly welcome here are GMC staff and their vetted gas miners. Some non-GMC researchers or academics may be accepted short term to research the nebula, but will still be watched over to ensure there is not any funny business.

Location Outcasts: Who does not belong here and why?

The Goota Mining Corporation (GMC) tries hard to remain neutral in galactic affairs by staying clear of the Empire and the Rebellion, for any entanglements with either can severely hurt profits or research progress. They try to prevent any sort of drama and, therefore, anyone who shows up to the station who is not vetted by GMC management is going receive a rather cold and heavily secured reception.
