Europa is a moon of Jupiter in the Sol system. Despite its location in the heart of the busiest system in the Federation, it is known primarily as a sleepy military base and trading outpost.

Description Edit

One of the most storied and ancient military outposts of humanity, Europa's foundation dates to the days prior to the founding of the Colonial Council. With the development of jump drives and hypergates, the base ceased to have any great tactical value, although during the dark ages, its function was revived for a short period. Lacking any strategic value, and with Sol's defense fleet based in the Kane Band on Earth, Europa survives as a military post as much a testament to the traditionalism of the military as for any true value the base may hold. This leads to the facility being a perfect posting for those long-time soldiers of the Federation's many wars prior to their retirement.

While Europa's military value may be minimal, and its environment too harsh for large scale colonization, the ice in which it is encased does make for a perfect water source and much is exported from here as it is so conveniently placed on the massive Sol intersection of hyperspace routes. Despite this however, captains who visit Europa may find the place rather inhospitable. Military facilities are closed to civilian crews, and there is little outside of the base to find enjoyable. Thus most crews very much have a 'get in and get out' attitude when it comes to a stop at Europa on their itineraries.

Port services Edit

Lacking both hospitality and industry, the only services available on Europa are the mission BBS, trade center, and recharger. The trade center is primarily centered on the export of water, and the importation of materials to support the military facilities, especially anything that helps the personnel feel warm and comfortable.
