Beyond the Black
Station Type: Cluster
Allegiance: Autonomist Alliance (Anarchist)
Primary Languages: Arabic, Malay
The Do-It-Yourself Shipyards are a highly automated ship-building facility, capable of handling
most small and medium-sized spaceship designs. The worker’s syndicate that operates the station will
construct a ship for any other anarchist group on one condition—they help out. The workers here simply love to make ships, and they are constantly tinkering with new systems and designs. When someone wants a ship, they’ll present them with a number of options and handle most of the highly technical aspects. The group requesting the ship is brought in, shown the ropes, and included in the project as much as they are capable. They may help acquire the metals and other raw materials, assist with the blueprint programming, help operate the manufactories, run testing
and quality control, or simply manually help put it together. The goal is to spread ship-building knowledge among like-minded autonomists. Quite a few unique designs come out of these yards.
