Once upon a time, there was a Protostar Marketing Copywriter who worked out of Illium. He’d been writing and editing diligently since his stationing in Nexus, thinking up clever catchphrases and commercials for the new products they would be developing on this new planet. He’d been cloned for just this market focus, in fact!
After five years of doing just that, he befriended an Ekose pilot by chance while he took a lunch break in the Illium shipyards. He liked the way the Ekose named Basio laughed and joked, how his mannerisms were so kind and simple. He liked his smile and he liked his ears.
After several months of meetings, the Ekose finally has a proposition for the clone; to ditch his gig in Illium and run off with him to be a Free Trader in the Fringe like him. The Copywriter resisted the notion, if just because he had to give a two week’s notice first! And he wasn’t ready to give one yet. But maybe soon. He would let Basio know if that time ever came.
Another month after that, the Copywriter simply looked up from his desk one day, opened a drawer, pocketed his two-week notice draft, and…left. Just walked out the door while others in his office asked if it was his break yet, marched right to the shipyard and into one freighter spacecraft in particular.
The Copywriter, now named Booker by his Ekose partner for his bookish ways, has yet to regret this rash and unprofessional decision.

Progress shots of Wyeth’s warehouse. Lots of Aurin floors for the walls, chua walls for the roof, and draken floors for … the floor. Plus a variety of pillars. I wanted it to be a tad run-down, so I left parts of the roof open. It casts nice shadows in certain light, too.
A word to the wise: the parenting tool isn’t as robust as one would hope — in that it can fuck up the children’s transformations if you move the set around too much. Fine for small groupings of stuff, but not so much for an entire building, apparently. Had to readjust transformations after moving the thing ‘cause everything got horribly out of square.
Also, the default grass clipping through stuff is killing me. Hopefully there’s an option to turn it off at some point?
So if their enemy is Granok, what do they do, lick the rocks?
