Overview

Dodecahedron-anim-aka.gif

The Dodecahedron stations, commonly called Dodos, are now a common sight in high-tech systems. The first prototype of the basic GASEC model went into orbit around Leesti in 3141. At that moment the Leesti Coriolis was wiped out by the comet Hal 9001. Scientists luckily predicted this impact a few months before the event after a major asteroid storm in the region. The new Dodo model could withstand impacts for much longer but it remains unclear why the new station was placed exactly in the same risky spot (SPACE magazine claims budgetary reasons). The Dodo-station proved to be a success.

The Dodo stations' landing dock size is the standard 192m x 64m x 250m (WxHxL)
