By far not the first permanent orbital facility, Cavalier station became one of the most important. Construction of it began two years after the destruction of the Starscraper and the death of Brian Griffith/The Cavalier, one of Great Britain’s greatest heroes. Cavalier Station’s purpose was to act as a test bed for various technologies reversed engineered from captured alien spacecraft that had been hoarded by the organization ECLIPSE. The technicians on board CS had made incredible strides in communication, artificial gravity, and life support as well as the implementation of microfusion technology. Due to the research on the station Earth’s space program has leaped forward decades in just a few scant years.
Today Cavalier Station plays an important role in the first alert warning system in the event of an alien invasion.
