Star Wars: Shadow War
Sel Zonn Station
Sel Zonn Station is one of over a dozen Space Platforms in orbit around Dac. Manufactured by Bengel Shipbuilders during the Clone Wars, Sel Zonn Station has not flourished since the rise of the Empire. Though it still sees a great deal of traffic from Dac and from travelers, the Empire has allowed large sections of the station to languish and fall apart. The more run-down sections of Sel Zonn Station are inhabited by the Mon Calamari and Quarren workforce, along with any other aliens living on the station. As such, a rift divides the station—privileged Human Imperials occupy the nicer sections of the station, while all others are relegated to worn and sometimes dangerous secondary sections.
The interior of the space station conforms to the Imperial standard. Since Sel Zonn Station is one of the primary Imperial stations orbiting DAC, it is far better maintained than other structures of its age, and the main areas see constant renovations and repairs. However, a few steps off of the beaten path quickly reveal that the station is rotting from the inside out. A short walk away from the main venues leads to decrepit sections of the station, filled with broken lights, tarnished metal walls, missing deck plates, and all manner of suspicious aliens that have been driven out of the nicer sections by the Empire.
Aboard Sel Zonn Station, all doors and walls are made of metal and conform to the standard statistics for objects. The station’s information terminals can be found at regular intervals throughout public areas and in private rooms. These terminals can provide basic information on the layout and facilities of the station, but not much else.
In addition to providing boarding and supply services, Sel Zonn Station is host to a number of businesses that cater specifically to travelers. Almost all shops are located on the Promenade, though a few are off the beaten path. Some of the most popular establishments include:
- Gundark’s Cantina: Owned and operated by a gruff Human male named “Gundark” Saff, Gundark’s Cantina is a place where people from all walks of life can come to relax. Though Gundark himself shows some anti-alien bias, he does not prevent non-Humans from patronizing his establishment. As such, it is a popular meeting place for nearly anyone on the station, and it features a large number of secluded booths for private conversations.
- The Credit Chip: A local casino that attracts a wide variety of patrons, the Credit Chip is operated by a quiet and brooding Human named Cecil Vane. The most popular games in the galaxy, including sabacc and pazaak, see a lot of play here.
- Delgas Medical Supplies: A corporate medical practice and pharmaceutical supplier, Delgas Medical Supplies provides care to those who can afford it. The chief doctor in the practice is Byra Fenn, a talented Human woman.
- Mechanical Allies: A droid repair and sales shop, this is one of the few businesses run by a non-Human that hasn’t been shut down by the Empire. Operated by an untrustworthy Quarren named San, Mechanical Allies sells all manner of droid parts and reconditioned droids.
The Empire is the only law enforcement aboard Sel Zonn Station. Any criminals or malcontents are incarcerated in the security office briefly before being transported via shuttle to the planet’s surface or any Imperial ship for transport. Customs enforcement is relatively light simply because large cargo haulers cannot dock with the station. As such, usually only a single customs officer is on hand for any cargo inspection.
The main commercial area of Sel Zonn Station is known as the Promenade. Filled with shops of all kinds, as well as large, open seating areas with fountains, plants, and other decorations, the Promenade is where Imperials and station visitors go to enjoy themselves. Security is tight on the Promenade, and Imperial stormtroopers are on hand at all times to keep the peace. Additionally, the Empire tries to keep the area free of aliens, and as such they harass any non-Humans moving about the Promenade. Although they won’t go so far as to arrest anyone, they often try to start fights with aliens just to have an excuse to lock them up. For this reason, most non-Humans tend to stay clear of the Promenade, except on rare occasions.
