Relay GLF-4728

One of thousands of automated refueling and relay stations scattered across known space, the ICG Combined Refueling Station & Telecommunications Relay in high orbit above GLF-4728 is officially at the very edge of explored space. Sitting at the end of the validated ICG charts and a very very long way from anywhere even remotely interesting, the relay officially exists to support ICG charting operations in grid G.

Unofficially, the placement of the relay was determined by the ICG after a hefty “donation” from ETL covered the cost of construction, deployment, and two decades of maintenance.

Relay GLF-4728 is about a week from earth at standard 0.6 cruise depth and speed. Traveling deeper and faster, Navigator John West was able to make the trip from earth to GLF-4728 in just under 12 hours. It is implied that he all but exhausted the Daedalus GNOMES fuel supply to do it, though docking at GLF-4728 is the first time the fuel gauge is mentioned.
