As the jumpgate pathways are being realigned and brought back into the galactic network, we are able to access further information on the stations of Ross 154. As always, the entry-point into the system is the jumpgate and, with the mesh links reestablished and lines of communication now open, we can bring you some information about it!

A new Emberfest is upon us! The air glitters with hundreds of holo-embers and, perhaps, just a dash more hope than before. It seems like an age since the previous Emberfest so long ago. The time between has been unprecedented, with most of us orbiting each other and our loved ones at a far distance, fighting to forge through the challenges we all face.
So, as the holidays dock into our port like an interstellar cruiser transporting hope and cheer, we want to wish you all our love and appreciation, our sincerest hopes for an amazing, gorgeous, and above all healthy 2021… and, maybe, just a little cheesy, sci-fi holiday poetry!

I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.
One of the core pillars of Tau Station are its missions. They are the main medium by which you can experience the many stories of our galaxy, how we introduce you to its denizens and engage you with their struggles, their passions, fears, their loves and laughs. Our missions weave throughout the systems and their stations, tying in themes and genres while guiding you through each narrative.

As in any capitalist economy, life among the stars still entails activities related to acquiring or spending money. In the Tau universe, this involves two key currencies, each of which is made and used in different ways. Sometimes it’s good to go back to basics, so today’s blog aims to help you brush up on your interstellar economics!
From a media channel on the Mesh hosting personal journals and video-blogs, we bring you ‘Parenting with Alika!’ Below is a transcript of Alika’s segment-long episode on bonds and credits, so you too can remember why capitalism is such an enduring system!Continue reading "The Economy of Tau Station"

Humanity is finally moving on from the bare struggle for survival, into an era where hope can once more resurface. However, there is still much work to be done, and so we look to individuals who may prove to be key players in improving our future! Last time we focused on the righteous Captain Vollmer, a person of convictions and actions, and now we’re happy to present another candidate – the likeable android Cur8.

Last tenspan we gave you an introduction to Sirius, but what does each station have to offer? Let’s start by zooming into Sirius’ self-proclaimed “most welcoming station”, House of Congo! Many of the locals consider it their real home, having escaped the Consortium’s Orwellian eye or Gaule’s militaristic tendencies to live somewhere they can truly be themselves. But what does that mean for the people who reside here? Let’s find out!Continue reading "Galactic Destinations: House of Congo"
These are interesting times we exist in indeed! Finally, after hundreds of cycles after a near extinction event that, to this day, has left our civilization with a galactic sized mystery and source of insecurity as a species, we are now in a place to begin asking questions. A think tank has been created and freelancers evaluated for field research.
Yet for every step forward, for every new clue uncovered, we meet resistance, even hostility. To that end, we must draw others to the cause, making allies and friends. And, if scientific protocol is to be observed, these persons of interest must be meticulously cataloged! Today it is my distinct pleasure to start the process off with the honorable Captain Vollmer.
