A typical wheel design orbital space station as run by minor powers or large corporations. It provides a transit station between planetary interface craft and interplanetary craft.
With one fifth of a G spin-gravity in the habitat section some degree of normal working is possible. It has room for up to 400 occupants of which 300 are given over to visiting dignitaries, and transiting passengers. A large open space garden provides food for long term occupancy and a recreation area.
A tertiary battery provides point defence and offence in case of attack. The hangar by holds craft such as work pods and orbital shuttles.
