Humanity has spread to the stars thanks to the Quantum Drive. The Scorpio Trading Alliance now runs a series of space stations around the red giant Antares. Traders, explorers, and even spies visit the system to conduct their business. The powers that be enforce a peace, but sometimes skulduggery gets by them…
- Space knights - enforcers of law and peace, either working for the Alliance or visiting the system
- Local traders or citizens
- Weird lifeforms (evolved humans or actual aliens)
- Secret operatives - spies or counterspies
See here for ship tech and history of the station.
The station can present itself as a virtual reality space, similar to Valerian’s Big Market (but not in another dimension…)
Science Fantasy Version
Cosmic space knights and aliens. Go nuts. Nobody needs to think about how this works.
