The Arcada was a Starship and Starlab and the home of the Star Generator Project tasked with saving the Earnon system from destruction. In another time in space it was the Arcada (original version).

BackgroundEdit

Light-years from Earth's solar system the people of the galaxy Earnon have been struggling to maintain the precious balance of life. The Sun of Earnon is slowly dying. The planets grow cold. Food is no longer plentiful. Life will soon become impossible to sustain. The scientific community of Xenon devised a plan to convert one of Earnon's lifeless planets into a new Sun.

The effort was centered around the development of a device called the Star Generator. The Star Generator would be capable of igniting an otherwise useless planet into a raging ball of flame. An expedition set out aboard the starship Arcada to successfully complete development and testing of the Star Generator.

The Arcada held a crew of thousands.

Game InvolvementEdit

The Arcada was Roger Wilco's first post. It was a scientific vessel that carried the Star Generator for a short period of time before it was boarded by Sariens, and was destroyed during that incident through the activation of its self-destruct mechanism. The only known survivor (besides the Sariens) was Roger Wilco, who managed to avoid the Sariens and escape in an escape pod.

Areas of the ArcadaEdit

Data Archive Storage Cabin (Data Archive)Edit

Data Archive Storage Cabin

This is the Data Archive Storage Cabin, holding the Arcada's library.

It is fully equipped with a Model DX Cartridge Retrieval Unit. It holds many files (although access to the catalog requires security clearance) including one filed under Astral Body.

The exit to the left leads to Corridor 2. The exit to the right leads to Corridor 1.

Star Generator Development Laboratory (Gamma level)Edit

Development Laboratory

The Star Generator Lab[1] is the research platform used to develop and test the Star Generator.

The Star Generator was stolen during the invasion by the Sariens. This room normally requires a high security clearance to enter, which Roger Wilco did not possess. Roger entered this room after the invasion, and there he discovered that the auto-destruct sequence had been activated. According to some theories, he also retrieved a magnet from this room.

The door leads back out to the corridor.

Captain's loungeEdit
