What Is Omega Station?

Omega Station, aka the Rock. A barren, airless asteroid on the outermost edge of the galaxy, home of the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor. Dotted with commercial, military and residential domes, the outer surface is the place to live for those who can afford it or are lucky enough to work there.
But the vast majority of the Rock's residents don't live in the surface domes; instead, they have tunneled downwards, moving ever further towards its fiery heart. The upper levels are safe, comfortable, secure—or as secure as anyone can be on
Omega Station. The lower levels, now; they are home to the detritus of a double dozen races and species, all living in uneasy juxtaposition, fighting, loving, eating—and being eaten.
The Rock's location in space, the last real port before exiting the galaxy, has made it a valuable commodity to many governments and private corporations, as has the addictive drug straz, which grows only in its recycling vats. Control has been taken and given in a hundred bloody battles over the years, but those who live in the lower levels—and further down, in the Depths—are often barely aware of whoever claims to be in charge.
No one, really, rules the Rock, whatever they may claim, however many weapons and warriors they throw against it.
For the Rock is eternal…and it has many secrets...and many stories...

Welcome to The Rock

Hope you make it out alive 

Omega Station is the worst place in the galaxy…go ahead, you can ask a few of the residents:

Rudof Dyll: scion of the richest family in the galaxy, exiled to the Rock for crimes unknown. 

Algensio: a four-armed Vamir, he communicates in perpetual Throobs.  

Malik Blayne: tortured, relentless, and determined to save his friends—if he can figure out who they are.

Simikus Giff: a Nicovan with delusions of grandeur.

Tau the Silent: a Human boy reared by aliens, now orphaned by the loss of his tribe. 

Crila Maragorn: a Human/Halsan woman with a dangerous prosthetic arm.

Captain Carle Eversyn: commander of the Consolidated Guard, who thinks he controls the Rock. 

Vurp Dingal: it never pays to go into debt with the wrong person, especially for an ice miner with loneliness issues. 

Bharstus Bhogani: a Kovindi fighter, he's eager to make a final score and get out of the game.  

Banastre Caravello: manager of the luxurious Starview Lounge, where everyone who is anyone meets, eats, drinks…and deals. 

These and many, many more are willing—and unwilling—residents of the Rock.
Are you brave enough to join them?

If you are...then these are their stories...
