The Missions of Tau Station

I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.

Mark Twain

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.

The Economy of Tau Station

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"

Galactic Destinations: House of Congo

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"

Person of Interest: Captain Vollmer

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.
