Research Station Delta[edit]

The Imperium set up Research Station Delta at Retinae when that world was still part of the Imperium, and has continued to maintain it through a formal agreement with the Zhodani Consulate, though that agreement is subject to periodic diplomatic protests. The Retinae system is connected to Imperial space by way of a naval courier route through Thanber (Spinward Marches 0717) and the research station is administered from Frenzie (Spinward Marches 1116) in the Vilis Subsector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The exact nature of station Delta's research is classified, the information in such stations is in the forefront of advances in Imperial technology, and thus is of extreme interest to other powers.
