Fuel Station OXP
A recent invention from AOO Solar (a publicly traded company based on Gearzaen, GalChart 3), the SWAFT, is described as ‘A revolutionary advancement in modern fuel scoop technology,’ by Farfelnel Aessiq, AOO Solar spokes-rodent.
“We are proud to announce the widespread availability of the Solar Wind Automatic Fuel Transfer Station (SWAFT) - our industry revolutionizing station. Our reward of the GCW contract for the immediate installation of SWAFT stations throughout the Galactic Charts will change interstellar travel and commerce as we know it.”
He went on to explain the operation of the station is based on a patent-pending, super-efficient fuel scoop system similar to that used on modern spacecraft. The station operates the scoop continuously, gathering minute traces of Quirium pushed out by solar winds. This small amount of quirium is too small for ship-mounted, general-use fuel scoops to recover. The station uses an ultra-efficient design patented by AOO Solar, and must operate continuously to gather the necessary fuel. When a ship enters the station, the station’s fuel scoop system is reversed, thereby, dumping large concentrations of fuel directly into the scoop intakes of the awaiting vessel. If the vessel does not have fuel scoops, a slightly slower direct transfer system is employed. Details of this system were not released.
There were some chuckles following the engagement from less reputable news reporters when one member of the press corps asked if the shape of the new fuel station was inspired by a device, known as an ‘exercise wheel’, created by humans for pet rodents. The AOO Solar spokes-rodent, a member of the native Gearzaenian species, declined to comment.
