What do space colonies do? I checked the rules page for stations, but nothing there specifically says what each type of station actually does. I assume that space colonies are stations capable of holding large numbers of people, but I'm not exactly sure what that means for me, the owner.
Is it like a small city? Does it generate income? If I were to purchase one, would I have to pay continual (lets say, monthly) maintanence-type fees? Can a single person own and operate a space colony by themselves?
I saw one for sale on CPM, and was considering buying it. However I don't really know what it does... Any help would be greatly appreciated :D
