The Origin Orbital Shipyards is an Immense Orbital structure, meant to serve as a shipyards, Corporate headquarters, and floating city. One of the largest such structures, the OOSY is constructed in three phases, each capable of more and more things. The OOSY is divided into ten sectors, constructed five at a time, Starting with Sectors 1,3,5,7,and 10. The Second phase adds Sectors 2,4,6,8,and 9. Phase three adds a number of extra shielding, power and control systems, to help defend the station from attack as well as handle large volumes of traffic.
The First Phase of the OOSY is strictly business, containing only the parts necessary for the station to function as a shipyards. It contains the central administrative hub and four of the Eight construction arms.
Sector One is ORIN's main production center, allowing the construction of up to 10,000 small (less than 100 meter) ships silumtaneously. The largest ships that can be made internally have a max size of 1,000M x 350M x 400M. Ships any larger than this can be constructed outside of the arm, but will take longer due to the environment of a vacuum.
Sector Three is the Headquarters of OMC and ODM, it contains manufacturing plants for vehicles and weapons, as well as testing areas for both. These include large heavily shielded shooting ranges for ODM, and several different terrain and road courses for OMC. ODM does not test Starship-grade weapons in this sector. OAW Also tests its weapons in this area.
Sector Five serves two functions; That of headquarters and manufacturing center for OSHI, and as a storage and shipment warehouse for the rest of the station. Anything that needs to be delivered on board a cargo ship must make its way to this arm, where it is packaged, tagged, and loaded to be sent on to its new owner. OSHI takes up the half of the arm closer to the hub, while the warehouse takes up the outer half of the arm.
Sector Seven is a restricted zone, reserved for ORIN and OAW, to serve as a Research and Development lab for their projects. It contains several hundred test chambers and construction bays. Its computers are segregated from the main system, to promote secrecy, and a high level of clearance must be obtained to enter Sector Seven. Permanent staff of Sector Seven wear a special insignia, which is a patch that looks like a seven ball from pool, with the letters 'SS' In black Gothic letters on the front.
Sector Ten is the central hub of the station, it contains the ship's main power, main computer, and thrusters. On top of that, most of this sector is filled with offices, meeting rooms, labs, and corporate apartments. The Station's main control center is located in this sector.
Phase Two of the OOSY Adds four more arms, as well as modifies Sector Ten, and adds Sector Nine, which is a civilian habitation area, to serve as a city for the workers of the station.
Sectors Two and Four are civilian industrial areas, providing space for small companies to do business and create things necessary to the operation of such a large station, such as food, clothing, housewares, appliances, furniture, and entertainment. Both of these arms have small spaceports, but they are mostly intended for pickup and delivery of products and raw materials to support the businesses contained therein.
Sectors Six and Eight are the primary spaceport facilities of the OOSY, containing starship storage centers, temporary parking (and anchorage for larger ships), Fuel stations, Repair shops, Flight schools, and parts storage. These sectors are extremely busy and have the lowest security of any sector on the station.
Sector Nine is a purely civilian sector, containing residential areas and a simulated environment which gives the impression of being on a planet, although the confines are rather small in comparison to one. Each of the four half Kilometer decks provides everything needed to function as a city, Including:
For all intents and purposes, Sector Nine is a large city. It is interconnected to allother sections of the station, making it a good place for workers to live.
Phase Two adds a large Traffic control center to Sector Ten, allowing it to more easily control the starship traffic coming in and out of the station, as well as act as a command center for the entire station in case it needs to move. A very Powerful communications array is also added, allowing the station to communicate over distances over 100 lightyears or more.
The most notable addition of Phase three to the station is the large defensive shielding array, which provides protection for the station and any ships anchored in space between the arms of the station. It is an enormous and powerful shielding array, but takes so much energy to sustain that it is only put up during emergencies. Also added are a number of small defensive weapons to deter pirates.
Special automated traffic control nodes are added during Phase three, on the even-numbered arms, which allows minor starship traffic to be much more efficient, and to help ease the burden on the main control of the station.
See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.
The OOSY is a vast and complex structure, a literal city in the sky. below are a few important systems to note.
The frame of the OOSY is constructed of heavily reinforced Nerimium, with the hull and interiors made from Durandium Alloy. Certain Internal parts are armored with extra Nerimium, such as the insides of the spaceport and shipyards facilities.
Each Sector is armed with a Destiny AI King suite, Set in a heirarchy, with Sector Ten's in main control, followed by the arms, and then Sector Nine's. Sector Seven is Isolated from the rest of the station. Only Sector Ten's Computer contains all the parts, The other nine Sectors only containing the computing core.
32 squadrons of 12 (4 in each arm)
