A sparse government-owned chain of automated stations exists between Firnir and the star itself. The idea is based on an ancient design that was pioneered at Sol. The stations are heavily shielded from the stellar radiation, and feature massive arrays of photo-voltaic panels. Each station harvests energy from Vir using the solar panels, and sends it to other areas of the system by beaming the energy to several relay stations farther away from the star, typically with a large laser.

These stations are generally devoid of life, instead, they are operated mainly by drones, with maintenance performed by positronic equipped units in shielded chassis, or very brave humans in voidsuits that protect from extreme heat, and radiation. There are currently 19 stations in operation.
