The EveningStar Orbital is built around a large, globular center. A long spindle leads down to seven, disc-like landing bays — one for civilian traffic and six others reserved for military
staging — including docking facilities for capital ships. Although it generally maintains a low orbit above Paradiso, the station possesses high orbital maneuvering capability and extensive defensive systems.
The station serves as home to the Paradiso
High Commissioner, the Bureau Aegis system headquarters, and the Coordinated Command of the human coalition forces in the system. Its large civilian population regularly brushes shoulders with military personnel and it is not inaccurate to describe it as the beating heart of the Paradiso system. Preparations are being made to also make it home to the Tohaa embassy.
