Default Phil's Gas Giant Fill-er-up

Reading THIS THREAD made me think of something totally different.

I thought that this might be a neat touch for a game.

What if there's a station in orbit around a GG that provides fuel for starships? Is that economically viable? I suppose it would be if fuel was needed and business was brisk.

I suppose if the main world was stellar masked to a large degree (see THIS THREAD to explore that idea), that might be the reason that most traffic swings by the GG on their outbound leg before reaching the jump point.

I imagine the station could have fuel shuttles that gather the raw fuel, and the station would basically be a processing plant that refines the fuel.





There can be some interesting permutations to this idea. What if the main world is balkanized, and it is country from that world that establishes the GG station (maybe backed up by a MegaCorp)?

Setting a game on the station might be interesting. What if one of the players rolls up a noble? The station would be an intriguing fief. This could be "home base" to some adventures.

Pirates hit the station?

An anomaly is detected inside the GG. Pull out Adv 1. There's an old Battle Cruiser floating in the thing! Or...an Ancient Site is detected!
