Welcome to Dark Star Station! A Dyson Sphere built around a black hole. This mysterious technological marvel has no equal in the known galaxy. No one knows who built it, or how they built it, or why it was abandoned. The good news is that this magnificent relic still stands today! And you can trust that we, Exploration Inc., will do our best to put it to good use.

No matter the opposition to our efforts we will press on. Despite the Scrappers stripping this monument for raw materials! In the face of fierce resistance from the A.I. Custodian Remnants that roam the station! More effective than the Illumination Project, and their cries for cautious scientific study! Better aware of reality than the Scions of the False Moon, and their crackpot theories about this station's creators living on its internal satellites! And certainly not as terrified as those pansy Preservationists, squatters, one and all! We! Will! Claim! This! Station!

So join up today!
