In the Starbase universe everyone controls a robotic endoskeleton, a fairly durable shell that is ideal for space exploration and colonization. The society, formed out of these robotic endoskeletons, is currently concentrated on Capital Mega Stations and smaller Mini Stations, "the suburbs" in space. The stations provide security, jobs, social hubs and trading possibilities for their inhabitants, making them ideal bases from where to start the colonization of the galaxy.
In the galaxy, the two most prominent factions are the rivalling the Kingdom and the Empire, with the Empire currently having control over the majority of the central stations. Other factions can however be expected to rise alongside these two, as the society evolves and progresses.
As life in space is currently centered on the celestial orbit of a single gas planet, brave pioneers are constantly needed to experiment on the boundaries of current space travel and other technologies in order to one day be able to reach the far corners of the galaxy.
