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.

Bring your ideas to life and create your own slice of space that all Citizens will be able to explore!Continue reading "Kickstarter Special: Station Co-Creation"

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"
