Your ship has just completed docking procedures at Adhara Space Station. It is your first time visiting the elite facility though you know, as all of the Alliance knows, of its splendour and opulence. Adhara is after all the home away from home to the crème de la crème of Alliance society.

Though you have flown pass the space station on many occasions, it has been your life long dream to see the interior of Adhara for yourself at least once and finally you have made it.

As you board the station you are greeting by a hologram who you recognise as Adhara, the space station’s Alliance famous AI. “Welcome Commander Courtney,” Adhara greets you with a smile. For a moment you’re thrilled that the famous being knows your name and then you remember that she simply recognised you by automatically scanning your electronic identification. It’s the same on every space facility no matter how large or small.

Even as you curse yourself for being overly thrilled, Adhara continues to speak. “I hope you will enjoy your stay. I have uploaded information regarding your accommodations to your Com-D as well as maps and tourists guides. Admiral Hag is expecting you. Would you prefer to go straight to her office or to see where you will be staying?"
