R&D 4's Rules Page


As research and development sciences have become more and more advanced, new facilities have been needed to manage the higher levels of technology. Earlier versions of the R&D station were much smaller and could only support shorter research projects, while the new station was built much larger to house more scientists and equipment for much longer periods of time.

A key feature of the station is its separate living quarters. The R&D 4 is split into three separate sections, with the main research facility in the center. One of the smaller platforms contains all the living quarters for staff while another provides mass storage of study materials. The third, equipped with four tractor beams to help manage it, acts as a docking bay for ships. Like the past three models, the R&D 4 has weapons to defend its research. With sixteen heavy laser turrets and three concussion missile launchers, the fourth rendition of the R&D station offers slightly more protection than its predecessors.

At full capacity, the R&D 4 supports a research staff of nearly seven hundred and fifty people; this does not include other staff who keep turrets ready, manage quarters, and provide meals to the researchers. This number is a large improvement over the earlier stations, making them obsolete to all but the most humble of galactic governments and companies.
