The Ampersand - concept thumbnail

The Ampersand is a neutral but Martian-run space station: the largest one between Mars and the asteroid belt. Originally designed as an inter-planetary freighter, high fuel costs and low efficiency forced her to decommission. The station became the second non-planetary orbital city ever in the year 103, and is the also second-biggest human structure ever built.

She is equipped with some of the most powerful Prismic engines and gravity wells in the entire solar system. If a rogue asteroid strays too close, she can at least avoid or deflect it.

In her retirement, she offers haven for all travelers. Ships can now dock at modified cargo holds along her four wing-like protrusions.

The name Ampersand came from her curvy figure and inclusive nature.
