|Waystations & Ways|
Odyssey station is a waystation located approximately 50,000 light years out from the Alpha/Beta Quadrant border, halfway between the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy.
Design and Layout
One of the first to scan the station in detail was Kevin Breeman on stardate 238708.23. At the time he had detected within the massive station several spherical cavities each approximately ten kilometres in diameter, whose purpose was at that time unknown.
Above these spherical cavities hangs a large superstructure. Originally this was thought to act as a kind of backbone to the station and the caverns inside of it but further analysis of scan data revealed that in fact this structure is the oldest component of Odyssey Station by over two milennia while the spherical caverns were a much later addition, dating back just over 2000 years ago.
The spine, or superstructure houses the upper docking facility of the station.
Patri Jia Kom arrived aboard the station by unknown means on stardate 239001.23 and claims that she had first visited a vast and abandoned city whose ground seemed to curve inward. Her reports and items she brought back with her indicate that she may have visited the interior of one of the spherical chambers Kevin Breeman detected during earlier scans of Odyssey.
Odyssey Station is host to a great number of exotic technologies, including computer interfaces that respond to the thoughts of users walking on them.
Visitors to the station aboard a stolen vessel on stardate 239001.23 found the holographic greeters still functioning and entered into a very large gaping chamber inside the station's spine. Apparently unused for some time that chamber was covered in dust. Incredibly however, an apparatus built into the floor and consisting of multiple glowing controls that responded to footfalls was found still to be functional.
