Orbiting the planet of the same name, Burista Station is ostensibly a corporate-owned laboratory engaged in perfume research and synthesis. However, it is actually the site of the Empire's ultra-secret Darkseed project, and counts both scientists and a significant military contingent among its population. The commanding scientists aboard are Dr. Girig and Dr. Zackrie, though the station's military personnel operate independently of the science team, and friction between the two bodies is frequent.
