A massive construction project between the Kadian and the Anari for the Systems Alliance. These stations are meant to protect major hyper space routes into the Systems Alliance and also act as a home base for sector fleets that patrol the other lighter/smaller routes. They maintain a huge sensor net that can detect ships traveling through their boarder.
These stations also act as a bridge between the Systems Alliance and out side Governments/companies. Trade can be conducted on or around the station, with the station providing even civilian ships normally only found in Systems alliance Space, such as the Clop C-class Cruiser, to be sold to those out side of the Systems Alliance.
The stations are heavily armed and are able to repel even a moderately sized fleet on their own. Typically they aren't the only station in the area, there may be other combat platforms or trade stations as well. Other defenses may include a Colony Laser, mine fields (of various types of mines) and gravity well satellites.
