With the confirmed success of the USS Traveller, the first Federation starship to reach Messier 4, Project Long Jump has expanded its operations to establish a station to secure the historic foothold outside the galaxy. Project administration has secured a Spacedock which will traverse the Galactic Barrier and some 8,500 light-years via the project’s alpha Phase Space Accelerator, being sent one piece at a time through the stellar slingshot.
Once reassembled on the other side, Canopus Station will serve as a beacon of light illuminating the path home for all who wander far.
Canopus Station will be an exploration sim with many world-building opportunities set in the new Messier 4 region. Its CO is Commander Benjamin Ingram as played by JakeSjet (who also commands the USS Traveller, the pioneering sim for Messier 4).
