Hollow Seen Around the Corner!

“Hollow Seen around the corner!”

The cry filters down the hallway from just ahead and is immediately followed by the sounds of a number of people, young and old, screaming and running. Dim lighting casts strange and jagged shadows as the echo of…something…follows them, reverberating round the bend in the dark corridor ahead. 

The chaotic cacophony predicts the visual of a panicked throng rounding the corner and sprinting, pell-mell in your direction! It is only as they get closer that you can make out squealing delight mixed in with the exhilarated screams of playful fear.

“Hollow Seen!” Somebody yells again to the accompaniment of peals of laughter as they run past you.

Mission Dispatches: Chapter IV

“The engineers of the future will be poets.” –Terence McKenna

We love a story…this is the type of statement we could enter were we vying for understatement of the galaxy. Our ongoing mission, that we wholeheartedly chose to accept, was to fill the universe of Tau Station with endless narratives and engaging adventures! To that end, we bring you another segment of Mission Dispatches to tease some upcoming, incoming, tales!

The Crane’s Critique: H.A.C.K 3.5″

Salutations salubrious listeners! Your main brain, Frasier the Crane, comes at you across the ever so slightly less than legitimate Freebooter airwaves once again!

Now, I once recall seeing a man enter battle with shoddy armor. I recall pontificating later that there were cheeses on ancient Earth that had less holes than this gentleman’s body.

Galactic Destinations: Ross 248

To the largest extent, we are reestablishing contact with more and more star systems as astro engineers work ceaselessly to reconnect bridges via jump gates. With each new system, a new bridge is brought back into the fold, with new connections to other systems. Slowly, hopefully, we continue to reclaim far flung communities separated in the Black during the Catastrophe. 

Occasionally, however, the link is already open, but travel is hindered by some other aspect. Sometimes it is control of the route by Freebooters, for example.

In the case of Ross 248 however, it is down to corporate policy and negotiations with a quantum level of complexity when it comes to fine print! 

Join us this segment as we learn a little about this, hopefully soon to be accessible system and home to Hemingway’s Hyperdashery!

Culture of the ‘Verse: Travel

“Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.” Excerpt from a small fragment of an ancient Terran guide to galactic life found after the Catastrophe.

After the Catastrophe, what remains of humanity exists is space stations scattered around the galaxy. Space, it is said, is what now binds human civilization. It is the dark and murky sea in which we flounder, struggling to stay afloat in. It is what gives us purpose, bonds us together against a cold, zero-atmospheric foe that would wipe us out but for a few meters of corroded metal and ancient rock. 

But we need it. Space is also our challenge, it drives us, lights the fires of our inspiration on how to survive it, traverse it, and even utilize it. It would be the death of us all, and thus we fight against it, stand against it, build our hulls to steadfastly protect us from it. 

Space, it turns out, is, at least for now, our home.

Culture of the ‘Verse: OmReAthletics

The galaxy sure is a biggun. Whole place is mindbogglingly vast, they say! And, thanks to them astro-engineering folks consistently workin’ them jump gates, it’s getting a might smaller in terms of our own perceptions. One of the greatest aspects of this here phenomenon is the reclamation and re-embracation thereof of long lost or even newfangled traditions! 

OmReAthletics is one such beauty to recently come back to us from the Ross 154 system! Join us for a segment to talk up this bit of Culture of the ‘Verse!

Hemingway’s Hyperdashery: Intergalactic Mega-Luxury!

Luxury, one often finds, is scarce in a post-catastrophe civilization. Most, whislt struggling to survive a near extinction level event, rarely are able to afford such amenities that some of us find essential to any sort of life worth living (or taking)! For us few elite, such considerations, however, are never off the table! Welcome to Hemingway’s Hyperdashery, gearing the galaxy in ultra-finery (if you can afford it).

Galactic Destinations: Le Guin Stronghold

Last but not least in our Galactic Destinations: Ross 154 series, is the enigmatic Le Guin Stronghold. Once Consortium, now charmingly Independent, this Station maintains a quirky, chirpy defiance in regards to returning to the fold. Take a segment to learn about a station that looks as different as its local sound.
