SavRS Setting 02.08: Major Space Stations & Colonies

This is a list of major Space Stations and Colonies on the Solar System.  The following is an explanation of each entry

Name – The designation used by the residents or administrative control of the installation (Colonies or Stations).

Location – The orbital position or ground based/hard location of the installation.

Lagrange Points – A Lagrange point is a location in space where the combined gravitational forces of two large bodies, such as Earth and the sun or Earth and the moon, equal the centrifugal force felt by a much smaller third body.  This smaller third body can then maintain a stable position relative to the two large bodies. Earth Lagrange regions are given as L1-L5. Lagrange regions for other bodies are prefaced by the planet or satellite name.

For easy reference, a list of the planets and their moons is shown below. Only those moons mentioned in the text are given.

MARSDeimos, Phobos
JUPITERIo, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto
SATURNMimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Hyperion, Iapetus, Phoebe
URANUS[Puck/1985U1], [Miranda], Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon
NEPTUNETriton, Nereid
PLUTOHoenir [Charon]

Function  – The primary purpose of the installation.  Most installations have more than one purpose, and many include elements of several functions.  These can be:

  • Colony – The Location is intended for human population
  • Industry – The installation is a manned or automated factory or commercial establishment
  • Mining – The installation is a manned or unmanned installation that mines a specific or multiple raw materials including ores, gases or water.
  • Scientific – The installation was built for research and development.
  • Military – The installation is either a manned military base or an automated monitoring/weapons platform. This also includes penal colonies, slave labor colonies and death stations.

Population – The general population of the station.  High transit stations will vary from 25% to 30%.  Most installation’s life support can handle 10% to 20% more than their given population, and most regulate their population strictly.

Affiliation – The first entry represents the ruling government.  Entries after that are influential factions also present on the colony or station, including Mega corporations, etc.  Finally, any entries in parentheses are the underground factions with a considerable amount of influence on the installation.

Notes – Further explanation of the installation and its importance to the system.
