There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas.
About this creation
Vnam Multas


The Ludgonian Industrial Union's galaxy contains billions of stars and billions of planets. Unfortunately, most residents of the LIU could only name a handful of these worlds. In order to improve astronomy grades across the LIU, TV2 has started a new program called LIU Atlas. Follow our host, Terrance McDoogal, as he takes you on a tour across the LIU and some of its more obscure worlds.

Note: This episode is presented in full screen. The corresponding dialogue is underneath each photo.

Onboard the Magellan:

Mike: “Fifty percent of the team we’re losing to is made up of Oldie. You need to step up your game.”
Doog: “Me? You’ve hit me more times than you’ve hit the ball.”
Mike: “Well maybe you’d be able to get out of my way if you weren’t lugging around that FREAKING MICROPHONE! Seriously!”
Doog: “I know just the place I want to put it!”
Oldie: “Quit your fighting ladies. Cam and I are the only ones handing out beatings around here!”
Cam: “Haha!”




Doog: “Uh-oh. This is never good.”
Mike: “I don’t hear any warnings from the computer. Think Hugo’s freaking out again?”
Doog: “Hugo! What are you doing up there?”
Hugo: “The computer detected a collision risk and automatically brought us out of hyperspace. The jolt must have knocked out some of our systems. I’m getting them back online as we speak.”
Doog: “A collision? Mike did you plot our course through a planet again?”
Mike: “No! At least, I don’t think I did. Wait…it’s not pirates, is it?!”
Hugo: “Relax. It’s not planet’s nor pirates…it’s traffic.”
Doog: “Traffic?”




Hugo: “Yeah. And a lot of it. Come take a look.”
Doog: “What in Kaadu’s name…why is there so much traffic.”
Mike: “This must be the ‘Merge’. I knew there would be increased traffic, but this is outrageous.”
Doog: “The merge? I never heard of it.”
Mike: “It’s a junction of several smaller, outlying hyperspace routes. They all come together here and merge to form the Deep Core Expressway. The expressway is one of the few safe routes through the Deep Core, other than the Corcot Run. We can go around, but there’s not a faster way to get across the galaxy. We’d add a week, at the least, to our trip.”
Doog: “Screw that. How long is this traffic jam going to last?”
Hugo: “I got the computer back online. We’re receiving an automated message from a nearby space station, Vnam Multas.”
Doog: “Well what does it say?”
Hugo: “Cargo ships are being given priority. Delays are expected. We’ve been given clearance to take the Deep Core Expressway in four standard hours.”
Doog: “Four hours…better than a week I guess.”




Mike: “Wait! I know Vnam Multas. I read a book on it once.”
Doog: “Oh did you? Well, next time we’re on a civilized planet, remind me to get you a medal.”
Mike: “Shut up and think about it. We have fours hours to kill. We can shoot an episode about the Vnam Multas Station, and I can be the guide!”
Doog: “Nah. I’d rather take a nap.”
Oldie: “I think we go with Mike on this one. Every episode we can squeeze out brings us closer to the edge of profitability. We might actually make some good money this season.”
Doog: “Fine. Money would be nice.”
Oldie: “Cam, fire up the space camera. Hugo, make for the station. Timbo, you’re on audio today. Let’s get going!”




Doog: “Welcome to another episode of LIU Atlas. I’m your host, Terrance “Doog” McDoogal. Today, we’re visiting the Vnam Multas Station. The station sits at the merger of several smaller hyperspace routes. And that’s about all I know about it. Today’s guide, my friend Mike, once read a book about it. Apparently, that makes him an expert of sorts. Mike, what can you tell us about Vnam Multas?”
Mike: “Well, Vnam Multas is one of the largest space stations in the LIU Galaxy. Station might not even be the right word for it. It’s more like a space city. Over twenty five million people live here permanently.




Mike: “The station has many purposes, but its main purpose is being a cargo hub. About 15% of the products moved through the LIU Galaxy come through here at some point.”




Mike: “The station also serves as a traffic control center. Thousands of ships come through here daily, and the station must direct traffic to avoid any collisions.”




Mike: “Last, but not least, the station is home to several space-based LIU companies. Many profitable LIU companies are headquartered here.”




Doog: “Running out of material yet?”
Mike: “Nope. I’m just getting started. The top of station is a massive communication array and radar tracking system. This allows the station to track every ship within two light years.”
Doog: “Well, shall we move in closer? Hopefully you can tell us about the different sections of the station…if you read that far.”




Doog: “What’s this?”
Mike: “This section is known as the Dormitory. It’s essentially a giant apartment complex. The building houses about 90% of the station’s citizens. A docking hangar near the middle allows small transport ships to drop off newly arriving workers.”




Mike: “The section above the Dormitory is home to two service hangars where ships can be repaired. This repair bay is home to several LIU Deep Space Repair Ships that service larger ships.”




Doog: “I know this logo, this is Galactic Express.”
Mike: “Yep. GalEx has its company headquarters here on Vnam Multas. This company specializes in moving smaller freight and mail throughout the LIU Galaxy. GalEx has six docking hangars on this station where freight is sorted and shipped out.”




Mike: “Another shipping company, Trans Farms, sits above GalEx. This company specializes in shipping perishable food items around the galaxy. You can see a refrigerated cargo ship sitting on the company’s extended landing platform.”




Mike: “This section is known as the Condominium. It houses the other 10% of the station’s population. The people here are mostly elite citizens, company CEO’s, and upper management. It too has its own extended landing platform.”




Mike: “The section above the condo’s is a factory owned by the company, Darhun Pharmaceuticals. Darhun Pharmaceuticals is a massive polluter, and it is too dangerous to keep on the surface of a planet. Here on the station, the company can release its noxious chemical byproducts directly into space. The company is connected to the rest of the station with heavy duty airlocks, and it has its own supply of air and water. The company has three armored hangars where it can safely load and ship its expensive line of vaccinations.”




Doog: “Is that a Blue Wave Mall?”
Mike: “Yep. The mall has a three star hotel, a diverse selection of restaurants, and several shops. It’s the commercial center of Vnam Multas. Both permanent residents and guests take advantage of the mall’s food, products, and lodging.”




Mike: “Uh, can’t quite remember what the place above the mall is. I think it’s some type of chemical factory, but I can’t be for sure.”
Doog: “World class reporting Mike. Way to instill trust in the viewers.”
Mike: “Whatever Doog. I’m sure they’re not expecting much when they watch your show.”




Doog: “Please tell me you know what this place is? Otherwise we might as well quit now.”
Mike: “As a matter of fact, I do. This is Gravitas, a company that specializes in making products in zero gravity. The building is gravity shielded, so it doesn’t experience the artificial gravity the other sections do.”
Doog: “What do they produce that requires zero gravity?”
Mike: “Mostly starship instruments: gravity calibrators and generators, inertia monitors, force dampeners.”




Doog: “Hey, I know this place too. It’s Honest Bob’s Warehousing. It’s based out of Lacunar Urbs A.”
Mike: “Yep. It’s based out of Lacunar Urbs A, but Vnam Multas has one of its largest warehouses. This two deck monstrosity extends deeper into the station than most of the others, comprising about 25% of the station’s upper deck. It stores several billion tons of cargo until it is ready to be shipped out. It employs a staggering amount of people, close to one million workers. They work around the clock stacking, sorting, and monitoring all this cargo.”
Doog: “Interesting.”




Mike: “LIU Cargo is the largest industry here on Vnam Multas. This division of LIU Cargo moves more freight than almost any other division, the exception being Mercor.”
Doog: “Look. You can see a large crane unloading cargo containers from a large freighter.”
Mike: ‘Yep. Cargo ships from all the surrounding hyperspace routes converge here to deliver cargo. It is then distributed where it is needed. A lot of the cargo here ends up being shipped to Mordax, where it is then exported out of the LIU Galaxy.
The LIU Cargo facility extends deep into the station, making it the largest section of the lower deck. At one point, Honest Bob’s Warehouse and LIU Cargo intersect, and large elevators are able to move cargo between the facilities. You can see a few floors of office space above the cargo hangar. This houses the control tower. The tower monitors the traffic surrounding the station, tracks cargo, and oversees cargo operations.
LIU Cargo is the largest employer on the Vnam Multas Station, employing more than 10% of the population.”




Mike: “This section is the Vnam Multas Administration Center. Workers here handle all the daily activities that keep the station running. The center has two Fusion Star Chambers that power the entire station. They also handle water purification and waste disposal.”




Mike: “No starport would be complete without a fueling station, and Vnam Multas is no exception. A large Octan fueling port keep cargo ships charged and ready to go. A large structure juts out the side of the building allowing larger ships to fuel, and two small airlocks on the top allow smaller ships to dock and fuel.”




Doog: “Is that a digital billboard?”
Mike: “Yes. Honest Bob’s Warehousing extends into this section of the station, so no business could be placed here. Instead, a large digital billboard was built. With millions and millions of travelers passing this station, it’s an excellent way to advertise to a wide audience.”




Mike: “This part of the lower deck is divided into three smaller sections: a police station, a division of Asteroid Bank, and a medical center. The police station helps enforce traffic regulations and protects the station. Asteroid Bank offers ATM’s for its customers and handles all the station’s employees’ bank accounts. The medical center provides medical care to the station’s residents. It also provides emergency medical assistance to passing ships using its fleet of LIU Medevac STS’s.”




Mike: “The upper section above the medical facility is home to LIU Security Transport. Security Transport specializes in moving high value cargo, like money, jewels, and precious metals. Their fleet of armored cargo ships keep these shipments safe from robbers and space pirates.”
Doog: “Is that about it? We’ve flown around the station so many times, I’m starting to get dizzy.”
Mike: “Yeah, I guess. I can’t think of anything else.”


Doog: “Well folks, there you have it. An entire episode shot from inside the Magellan. An entire episode based off the knowledge of my friend Mike, who once read a book on the subject. I can’t attest to anything he’s said, but if any of it is true, Vnam Multas is an important part of the LIU. See ya next time…when we’ll have a real episode…”



Note:

Oldie: “If you girls are done working, let the beat down commence!”

Fantastic space station, but I am surprised there is no Red Light District. What do those poor people do with their free time?~H

Always fun to have an unorthodox episode, likely you like a break from interiors every so often as well. I love how you reference all sorts of prior episodes, it's like the recurring characters which lend credence to any series of novels or D&D campaign. Hope Doog can pull his act together against oldie there...

Not bad for not being a real episode! But don't tell Doog - he'll start cutting corners every time.

Your style is instantly recognizable! Not as funny as some of your other works, but nice job nonetheless. I find it revealing that the sheer number of LIU mocs allows you to have so many cross-references to past scenes...

Great job on that station! When I saw the first pic I wondered, Did he build the whole thing? All sorts of nifty docking ports, color schemes, and greebles. Too bad they aren't going inside. I'm curious about the mall and food court...

Great stuff again! But... I would have liked to have seen a photo of the top and bottom of the station, so that I could get a 'shape-igon high'! Ah... Geometry... I read a book about it once... ha, ha! Oh... and I truly admire the sneaky, but shameless, way you referenced your past works! Cheers! :)

A fascinating selection of designs and pannels. I like the refuelling rig at Octan and the armoured bays at the pharamcutical company. I think that the variation of the format worked very well too.
