The finished Peace Station.

Max. Crew: About 5500 representatives of different races including security forces and operations crew, plus civilian personnel
Min. Crew: At least 10 Hemmoians and the bridge crew
Weapons: 17 Particle Annihilators
Shields: Partial energy shields, replaced several times

Essentially a small city in orbit, the Peace Station was constructed shortly after the devastating First Bacterian War by the Hemmoians. The station was meant to prevent massive conflicts like that by providing an open political forum for all interstellar governments, where they would have a place for solving their differences in a peaceful manner. The task was not an easy one, and various conflicts broke out from time to time during the Station's operation, but even then, the Peace Station Project was commonly regarded as a success among the galactic peoples.

Design

The legendary Peace Station was designed by K'ags Oiduts, based on the already aging Chaos A station design, and got old mighty fast.

For some reason, the lower decks of the Main Saucer were never completed. For instance in the lower decks there was this legendary door which had a "Toilet" sign on it, but it was actually a one-way airlock. Pretty damn annoying.

Modifications

During the first year, the Peace Station was heavily modified. A city of alien buildings were attached to the "bottom" of the station. It was named "The Hub City".

The station's shielding systems were significantly improved several times during the station's lifespan, as the need for increased protection became obvious.

Repairs

The Peace Station was almost completely destroyed 5 times, major repairs were made 4 times, the wallpapers in the Hemmoian sector had to be changed 47 times, and the plumbing was replaced 2 times. The hemmoians aboard the station had a saying: "When there is a combat situation, this is a gigerdian station. But when it comes to repairing things, the station is suddenly ours."

Decks

Command Dome

The Command Dome is the smaller of the two central towers protruding from the Main Saucer. For security reasons, access to the decks in this section is limited to command personnel only. Unlike the decks in the Main Saucer, the decks of the Command Dome are more tightly packed and built for quick an easy access between levels, for an example, between Traffic Control and the CIC.
