(Outpost Station) Lothar’s Landing had to be evacuated earlier today, at about 4:00 UTC, for just under an hour, when its life support systems became in danger of immediate failure. There were no pilots docked on-station at the time and the small station staff made an orderly evacuation using the station’s lifepods.
TRI-STAT, a division of TRI Services, is under contract for maintenance and operation of all major stations – including the four “relic stations” discovered in GBS, Evening’s End, Lothar’s Landing and Klatsche’s Hold. “The systems in the relic stations, frankly, are ancient,” said TRI-STAT Director, Arold Crumwald. “The systems are patched-together as best we can. What’s really needed is a complete refit, but we just don’t have that kind of budget – and in the past few years these places have pretty much become ghost towns.”
