Golden Lotus is a Concord-class solar sail vessel manufactured by Mercury Interstellar know for its high-quality space ships. The ship has a modular design with a central spine structure that can be fitted with different modules to meet the customer’s needs and wishes. The core structure comprises of the main module (Module A) and the drive module (Module D).
The type-3 standard schematic has additional crew compartments and life support systems to meet the needs of increased passenger and crew count. It also has a small shuttle docking clamps and airlock and expanded leisure deck with 360 transparent cupola.
Omnion Engramics is relatively small, but one of the most successful companies in the field of advanced cybernetics and general artificial intelligence.
Most of the larger robot manufacturers have their mass-produced models assembled in large factories and the research and customer relations are often handled at separate locations, but the Omnion Engramics operates differently. Their smaller production facilities develop and produce custom made AI operated cybernetic systems for various purposes from heavy-framed industry robots to humanlike household androids.
A typical facility has on-site laboratories, customer premises and the manufacturing in the same building. Omnion Engramics has basically two significant branches. One is their entertainment branch where they offer people very realistic, but safe historical theme parks with android actors. These androids have highly advanced personalities. Often extracted from the brain of a real person and then edited to fit its role.
Another branch is not public and it deals with more sensitive research and development. Some facilities are co-operative projects with the government. These facilities have higher security measures and they are often located at a remote location with very limited network connections for security reasons.
Three years ago a private mining survey crew, working under a contract for the Corporation, found a cavity inside an asteroid in the asteroid belt. The cavity was found in initial density scans because of its unusually symmetrical shape surrounded by a layer of high-density silicates. The scan data was sent to the contractor, and the Corporation immediately claimed over the mining operations. Radio contact with the mining vessel was lost soon after the data was received.
For unknown reasons, the contracted mining crew decided to initiate excavations, before the Corporation vessel arrived. The mining crew bore a tunnel through the asteroid, reaching the cavity in a matter of days. According to the biometrics and sensor recordings salvaged from the remains of the mining ship and the crew’s skinsuits, the crew had built a temporary airlock inside the asteroid and breached the cavity just hours before the Corporation vessel arrived on site.
It was immediately obvious that something was wrong and a hazard control unit consisting of four military-grade hybrids and a synthetic was sent to secure the area. The site was secured and contained, but with heavy casualties. The operation was successful thanks to the support of the ship’s AI and the synthetic crew member, who seemed to be immune to the psychogenic effects of the organism, later designated as Echidna, found inside the asteroid. –
ZT-3300 Light Freighter is a highly modular cargo ship that can carry larger cargo modules in addition to its small internal cargo hold. This ship is fitted with a small crew module on the left front section and an escape pod on the left lower section next to the engineering. The main module on the right front section also works as a detachable emergency vehicle. This ship’s crew has invested in a med-pod for emergencies. It can be used to treat serious wounds, pathogens, and toxins. It also functions as a cryogenic stasis chamber in case the patient needs to be stabilized for a longer period and transported to more advanced medical facilities. The ship’s turret is accessed via a vertical tube in the engineering section. The tube also works as an airlock and access hatch to the top of the ship, but it can be also fitted with a second turret.

Industrial tycoon and inventor Anthony Spark lives in a luxurious mansion built on a cliffside facing east. The upper floor has a kitchen, dining room and two smaller rooms, and the bottom floor has a workshop, living room, a master bedroom (that also doubles as a safe room if necessary), a large balcony, and a sauna.
