In 2180 (Yamatai year YE 27), as a means of increasing space commerce (and making a profit of it), the Nerimian Galactic Confederation came to Ketsurui Fleet Yards to ask for a space station design. Wary of divulging their technology, and focused on other tasks, KFY turned down the offer, citing that they were still concentrated on military production. Still interested in the station's development, KFY referred the Nerimians to the civilian manufacturer Geshrinari Shipyards, based in the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia system. Geshrinari Shipyards, had recently begun manufacturing the Sojourner Medium Cargo Transport; KFY struck a deal with Geshrinari that would provide the company with the necessary resources and facilities to meet the demands of Ayenee and the Nerimians. Thus, this class of station was designed and built jointly by Geshrinari Shipyards (most of the structure), Phoenix Armaments (defense and weapons systems), with assistance from Ketsurui Fleet Yards (internal power systems).
