History and background[edit]

Gesiisha Station has a permanent population of just 70 officers and staff of the Gesiisima Trust Company, of Nikhuskir (Tekelili City), although there is a transit population of several hundred. Originally the City operated an automated mining facility gathering complex hydrocarbons from comet cores, for shipment to Nikhuskir (Dagudashaag 2515). However, the availability of inexpensive refined fuel extracted from comet water ices and its position on a Jump-2 step in the Jump-1 Main soon saw it grow into a major transit point for Main traffic. It also acts as a major brokerage for goods flowing from Nikhuskir and its markets on Kuriishe (Dagudashaag 2717) and Giku (Dagudashaag 2517).

There is a space station, with 12 docking arms supporting ships up to 1000 Tons displacement; plus repair facilities and refined fuel, together with rest and (high-tech) recreation facilities. It has become a popular vacation to visit Gesiisha from the more straight-laced Nikhuskir. The low Law level primarily reflects the free trade and non-Customs environment: for security and safety reasons, the weapons code within the space station is Law 9 (no weapons outside one’s apartment).

The automatic factories associated with the station offer a popular (and profitable) line in one-use drop-tank jump-boosters to help Jump-1 ships make a two-stage deep-space Jump-2.
