The GTI Asteria


The Shard Of Infinity Tech Room Description

The GTI Asteria is a station originally designed for commerce and trade. With its 9 docking points and able to station at least one wing of fighters for patrols, the station is well-fitted to serve as a hub for trade in system. Because Asteria-class Stations are easily set-up, this class of station became the GTA's choice for supply outposts in contested areas. With 24 turrets the Asteria's self-defense is outstanding for a station of its size but with its smaller size also comes lower durability, therefore using fighters are its primary means of defense is highly advised.

Developer Notes

The model was originally made by Axem and then converted by Oddgrim. However there were some problems with the model regarding the dockingpoints, a non-fuctional fighterbay and the mapping. These were solved by 0rph3u5. Another version of the model exists in the Inferno Alliance mod which was derived independently from Oddgrims conversion or even Axems original model.

Some features of the original model were lost during the conversion - like the teeth around the hexagonal hole.

Name origin

Asteria is the name of various characters of Greek mythology, including a Titan goddess. In Hesoid's texts the island Asteria is identical to the island of Delos.

Compared with Acadia the Asteria really some serious defensive ground-work. Most of the 24 turrets are well placed to defend the station - some are placed quite odd spaces and have questionable effect on the defense.
