Xenia is a Covalex shipping hub constructed to support the burgeoning shipping industry in the Terra System. Xenia has expanded by leaps and bounds with the realization that operating through the station allows merchants to avoid the increasingly high tariffs associated with moving goods through Terra-based facilities.
The station itself has grown into a series of pre-fab habitation facilities joining together cargo bays to form a ring. These bays range from pressurized hangars for smaller ships to massive vacuum ‘wet docks’ capable of servicing the largest freighter designs. Larger ships flying under Covalex registry and carrying bulk goods typically disperse their cargo at Xenia, where private enterprise crews can pick up contracts for delivery to the surrounding systems.
Xenia is a great place for newly formed Freelancer and Constellation crews to learn the tricks of the trade, with the Xenia-Terra and Xenia-Gem runs being single-jump hops. There’s not a great deal of profit in helping Covalex avoid import taxes, but it is ideal for inexperienced crews looking to find their space legs. The station’s active job board is also a good place to pick up longer duration missions with higher payouts.
