[The Solar System was here! The planets here for exploration, cultivation, exploitation, you name it. Everyone was going about with new-found ships and technology, to stake their claim amongst the stars above Hellifyno on the 9 planets and many moons beyond. Twine CO., even, has begun to create a wildlife study & research area on Planet VI (Saturn), in hopes of learning more about the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit these places. Kaler too was there, as he had taken trips back and forth to help Kida and the teddies in preparation for a future endeavors. Though, whilst everyone else seemed to stake their claims amongst solid ground, there was one who sought differently, at least in terms of placement and geography. And that was Kaler himself]

-_=_-

[Kaler wasn’t one to be considered a leader, or commander of sorts; he often followed in others footsteps for guidance on his part. However, the prospect of getting a claim to build anything space-worthy got him thinking. And that thinking blossomed into what he thought was a neat little, or rather large, contraption. This, was the Sol Station!]

[This large space station/spaceship hybrid came together with the help of Hellifyno engineers and Twine assistants, of which some have become part of the crew, to design something well suited for being piloted close to The Sun, and designed intentionally for further studying of said Star. However, much of the current happenings within the now newly finished and suited up station are largely basic, and revolve around Kaler, and the few humanoids and robot assistants who were provided, going around and checking individual systems and electronics, testing out communications and movement capabilities of the ships engines and flight mechanics, and then of course the Portal Gate specifically made for Twine’s network]

[At this moment in time, after the official commissioning of the ship had gone ahead, Kaler took the time to go around the outside of his new homestead, again without the real need for any spacesuit, as lucky him, he were able to survive the extremes, even this one. This time however, he did have a suit-helmet on, brandished from his wrist device, in order to communicate with the people within the ship as he went about his work] “Alright, s-stabilisers look set, the aray of communication ballasts are holding firmly. Are we good for calling home?”

-_=_-

[What responded was a slightly deep, gruff voice of an engineer, one of beast-like proportions] “Indeed we are Master Kaler, communications are running 100%, and the flow of energy from the Sun has peaked at grand efficiency. We’ll begin setting up the rest of the devices now if you’d be happy to join us” [Background chatter within the comm-link consisted of a multitude of voices; not a lot, but a few differences here and there, other engineers and patrons from Twine and Hellifyno, going about the works to make sure this place was operational] “Hmm…y-you guys go on ahead, I’ll join back in a little, out”

-_=_-

[With that, he disengaged the comm-link, and even let the suit helm form back into the wrist device, his silvery hair free-flowing in the endless vacuum, eyes blinking gently, to glance around the blank yet beautiful scenery that presented itself to him. A star-lit sky, filled with many wonders and stories of old and new, twinkling with mystery and promise. And then there was their own Sun. That white/yellow hot orb of plasma and magic, such a mystery it were now, more so than he ever thought before. To others perhaps, hot and white, however thanks to his own biology, and the screening inside the station, they all got crystal clear viewing of its spectacular yellow/golden radiance]

-_=_-

[They were practically specs before this mighty ball of power, and energy. Yet Kaler felt so at home close to something so massive. It was all thanks to that biology of his; here, at this distance, and anywhere closer, he felt so very alive and thriving on the inside, every cell packed with fresh, invigorating Solar Energy, and he felt a clear connection to this grand and mighty orb. He wished to know more, and know more he hopefully would, with this station here and all, he had a means to absentmindedly study]

-_=_-

[With the viewing out of the way, he decided it were best to head back inside, and so he did, swooshing silently through the void until he came to the open hangar bays. Large open structures for the various cargo ships that had unloaded their hauls of supplies and materials for prior construction, now beginning to be replaced by a few transports and individual fighter-sized vessels of varying amounts. He too came on in, touching down on the neatly designed and painted metallic floor, various tubes lining the floors for refueling, and boxes and small conveying vehicles with spare parts and maintenance workers dotted about]

-_=_-

[It was new to the boy, and to the others here no doubt, individuals always glancing in slight awe each time they saw such technological advancements right before them; sure, Hellifyno was an everything-world, but often seemed to centre more on the mythological side of things. Now it was time for technology. Down a large corridor of lights and panels he went, through an automatic sliding door which lead him to the Lounge room, which was filled with many patrons and workers of different species. The most official of them, including the beast-like man he talked to before, greeted him kindly and with praise, to which Kaler just accepted with a kind chuckle] “Aheh, cmon guys I-I don’t deserve that much credit, we all helped make this remember?”

-_=_-

[And with that, he was on his way for more practical tasks; like, oh, testing out how much better at video games he was than them! :p]
