Compartment Layouts

Passageways

The Passageways run along and inside the Shipyard with an equally large and wide tunnel-based system that on the outside were made with a Transparent Durandium material, allowing those walking the passages to see outside from the Station. Specific positions of these transparent tunnels allow for the viewing of where they and their Miner colleagues worked and any Starship traffic that might occur. The Shipyard passageway attached to Omacron was transparent.

Wardroom

On entering the shipyard from the passageway, the tunnel opens up into a wide and bustling area, alive with the activity of engineers and support staff. To the left, a spacious cafeteria beckons, providing a communal space where engineers can take a break and enjoy their meals. The cafeteria is well-equipped, offering a variety of food options to suit different tastes and dietary requirements. Engineers can grab a quick bite before heading back to their tasks or enjoy a leisurely meal if time permits. Given the efficiency of the transit system, many prefer to venture into the Station’s city for a wider array of dining experiences during their longer breaks.

At the far end of the cafeteria, an office area stands as the nerve center for job assignments. Here, an employee diligently manages the workflow, ensuring that each engineer receives their assignments promptly. This office is a hive of activity, with screens displaying ongoing projects, schedules, and priorities. Engineers frequently stop by to receive instructions, whether they are tasked with working on starships or other high-tech projects. This centralized management helps maintain order and efficiency in the shipyard, ensuring that every task is completed on time and to the highest standards.

Directly across from the cafeteria are the lifts, a series of high-capacity elevators designed to transport personnel quickly and safely to various levels of the shipyard. These lifts are crucial for navigating the expansive vertical structure of the facility, allowing engineers and support staff to move between different sections without delay. The lifts are equipped with advanced safety features and operate with precision, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.

Further away from the cafeteria, the recreational area offers a welcome respite from the demanding work environment. This space is outfitted with holo games, including popular card games and other interactive entertainment. Engineers can unwind and socialize, engaging in friendly competition and building camaraderie. The holographic technology provides a highly immersive experience, making these games a favorite pastime for those looking to relax and recharge.

Overall, this section of the shipyard is designed to balance work and leisure, creating an environment that supports both productivity and well-being. The seamless integration of dining, administrative functions, transportation, and recreation ensures that engineers can perform their duties efficiently while also having the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves during their downtime.

Starship construction area

The Ship construction area is a massive complex that easily overshadows the Dragon-class Mobile Refinery. This imposing structure is an engineering marvel, designed to accommodate the construction of a wide variety of ships, regardless of their size or complexity. Its standout feature is its adaptive nature, allowing the entire facility to adjust itself dynamically to suit the specific dimensions and requirements of each vessel under construction. This flexibility ensures that the construction process is as efficient and precise as possible, catering to the unique specifications of each ship.

In this vast, zero-gravity environment, traditional methods of keeping ships in place are impractical. Instead, advanced magclamps are employed to securely anchor the ships during their assembly. These powerful magnetic clamps ensure that even the largest and heaviest components remain stationary, providing a stable platform for the intricate and delicate work required in shipbuilding.

For the engineers working in this section, safety is paramount. The Mining Guild has equipped them with specialized Engineering Robotic Bodies, which are akin to the RECORM Bots.

These suits are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of space and provide the engineers with the strength, precision, and protection needed to handle the demanding workload.

To navigate the sprawling construction area, engineers use small hovering platforms. These platforms allow them to move effortlessly from one part of the construction site to another, providing quick access to any section of the ship. The mobility offered by these platforms is crucial in a zero-gravity environment, where traditional means of movement are not feasible.

Despite the technical and industrial nature of the construction area, a sense of camaraderie pervades the workspace. Engineers can often be heard singing over the comm channels as they work, their voices adding a touch of warmth and companionship to the otherwise mechanical and sterile environment. This singing serves as a reminder of the human spirit and the teamwork that drives the success of these monumental construction projects.

Armored Hull and Hull Integrated Systems

The top section of the Shipyard was a tier 15 hull structure, composed of a combination of Durandium and Aggregated Diamond Nanorods along with layers of graphene sandwiched Osmanium spread throughout. This is within a shell of Aegium, which also makes up the support structure deeper within.

Computers and Electronics

The Station is controlled by the Dominus type AI, the shipyard section is controlled by Dominus Subordinate AI which aided the construction of the ship via the management part of the development, with the capacity to remind others of planned construction.

The inhabitants use various communications, including the Dominus Type communication system for alternate messages. The adaptive AI can communicate with Omacron and vice versa.

Emergency Systems

A bank of 40 NDC Power cells, acts as emergency power source in the event that the Power Core's power die. This will ensure that comms, life support, and sensors continue to receive power for three weeks.

Life Support Systems

The Wardroom section has air producing technology using standard External Respiration Kit.

Waste Disposal

Waste is transferred to a large tank where a huge magnet slides over the ceiling; metal items are picked up by this and are transported to a new tank. It is then where an advanced sorting system sorts the pieces into proper holes. The metal is smelted, and merges into what would normally be a giant ingot, had it all not been separated again before it entered the molds. The metal is sent to the various factories of the New Dusk Conclave to be made into new items. Manure followed a similar direction, as it too is dropped into containers that are transferred to farms or factories that can turn it into fertilizer. Broken electronics are taken apart, the metal joins the other metal, and the other materials follow suit in their respective compartments.

Other Life Support Systems

n addition to the comprehensive life support systems, the shipyard incorporates an intricate network of pipes that manage the vital transfer of water throughout the facility. These pipes are responsible for ensuring the availability of water for flushing toilets and operating sinks, maintaining hygiene standards, and supporting daily operations.

The water supplied through these pipes undergoes a rigorous quadruple filtration process. This advanced filtration ensures that every drop of water is meticulously purified, eliminating any possibility of contamination. Not even the tiniest microbes can survive this thorough purification, guaranteeing that the water is of the highest quality and safety for all users. This level of filtration is crucial in a closed environment like the shipyard, where maintaining a clean water supply is essential for the health and well-being of all personnel.

As part of this sophisticated water management system, the salts extracted during the filtration process are not wasted. Instead, they are diverted to a different area where they are repurposed for new applications. This not only exemplifies efficient resource management but also supports the sustainability initiatives within the shipyard. By finding innovative uses for by-products like salt, the facility reduces waste and maximizes the utility of all resources.

This purified water is made available for various uses, including drinking. Engineers and other staff members have access to clean, safe drinking water whenever they need it. Hydration is vital for maintaining peak performance and focus, especially in the demanding environment of a shipyard where precision and attention to detail are paramount. The availability of high-quality drinking water ensures that engineers can stay refreshed and energized throughout their work shifts.
