"The crew sent out to build the fifth of the Bassethwaite space stations thought it a dream come true when they found a mysterious alien shell so close to where they had planned to construct their own. They moved in and took over; now, twenty years later, the station is a port of call for refugees, smugglers, businessmen, diplomats, and travellers from a hundred worlds. Humans and aliens (and sentient Uplifted ferrets) mix and mingle for business, pleasure, negotiations and occasionally conflict. But now the peace that has lasted for most of the station's life is threatened...
"The year is 2257. The name of the place is Bassethwaite 5."
Premiere: GenCon UK 2005
