Earlier this cycle we shared that our Aesthetics Regulation Taskforce added a number of gorgeous looking NPC avatars to the corridors and walkways of your favorite stations. Citizens of the galaxy come in all shapes and sizes and will help, hinder, or engage you in myriad ways!
Cast your CORETECHS below for a sneak peak at some of the ones you can talk to for a chance to perform a quick task for some much needed credits!
Breccan is a stout fellow with arms and a neck as thick as filtration tubes. His large eyes blink slowly, and a jaw built like a brick moves to intone words that trickle out with a slow and intentional rhythm.
Irene is an Amazonian woman who stands a good foot taller than anyone around her. She has frazzled grey hair and wears a waterproof hooded jacket for long rainy days outside fruit picking. Irene’s eyes dart around quickly, never focusing on one thing for too long.
Corentin walks a stiff posture that makes him look more like a board of wood than a man. His uniform is spotless and crisply ironed.
Tall and thin, Phillipe’s body is wrapped in a crisp Gaule uniform that accentuates his severe features.
A serious expression bends Cypress’s brow into an unpleasant frown. His Sect robes are threadbare and worn at the hems.
Martina has fiery red hair and elegantly painted deep red lips. She has long fake eyelashes and a mole above her lip that could be real or painted on. Martina walks gracefully in her high heels and tightly fitted pink corset. There is a kind of poise to this woman which has become uncommon in the post-Cat world. A mischievous smile dances across the edge of her lips and the corners of her eyes when she looks at you. She speaks in a low, husky voice, and only after a half segment of conversation does it become apparent that Martina is a man in woman’s clothing.
Akane’s demeanor is as sharp and crisp as her uniform. A shiny, black, synth-leather belt rests on top of her black jacket, which reaches to mid-thigh. A patch on her shoulder proclaims that she was part of the Tanegashima Fleet Security Forces.

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!

As we recently shared, our Aesthetics Regulation Taskforce has been cranking up their CORETECHS well past eleven this cycle! This time round, they’d like to introduce you to some of the newest denizens (or newer looks of older denizens) of the galaxy! Keep reading for a look at some gorgeous avatar artwork!

“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.

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!

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).

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!

When the world is reborn, when all that we knew is claimed by fire and darkness, its citizens are left struggling to find the light.

Reclamation Day is designed as a day of rebirth. Reclaim, recycle, reforge your narrative!
