Jupiter Mining Corporation cargo waypoint

Green Planetoidy (don't ask) is basically a way station for JMC routes. Cargos can be easily transferred here - in fact, a number of concerns with significant means themselves of moving cargo, but not the ability to berth one of the Blue Midgets, will arrange to pick up or drop off their shipments here instead.

Construction was completed in 2015, with an initial 4 large cargo docks capable of accommodating ships the size of the Blue Midget class, enabling loading and unloading in full atmosphere, as well as a pair of dedicated slips for the Starbugs. By 2021, this was enlarged to 30 cargo docks. Most of the facility is grafted into an asteroid that was moved from the belt, and is honeycombed with passages and large bays with doors accessing the exterior of the asteroid. There is a large number of "buildings" along one large surface on the outside of the asteroid, making it strongly resemble the Space Academy facility from the old television series.

Facility quirks

It's Not Easy Being Green: The facility, while using the asthetic of the Red Dwarf series, is painted green. All the bulkheads, deck plates, walls, and other opaque surfaces are painted green. Any repairs or additions have green paint slowly oozing over them from already painted surfaces. Thankfully, this hasn't extended to anything NOT bolted down, nor to signage, at least not yet.
