Though its existence is not well known, Liberty Station is the largest space craft ever produced on Earth. It is the result of Captain Zero trying to destroy the Champions' of Justice Cavern Lair in the Los Angeles hills, and Count Zero's surviving maintenance droids misinterpreting the wreckage and debris. They rebuilt the headquarters first, and then, several months later, an experiment was done cross-wiring the teleporter with the hyperdrive unit. The result was that they were able to launch the ship without destroying the mountainside.

Despite its name, Liberty Station is not stationary. It is a fully operational spaceship, primarily of Xehnian design, but it has been through a major overhaul. Automated systems rergularly move it out of the way of Earth's satellites and other space debris. It has become the Champions of Justice primary headquarters, capable of housing the entire team and several guests, as well as several laboratories and recreational areas. Its presence over the Earth is what give the Champions access to their teleport systems, as well as allowing their communicators to have global range.

The areas marked in gold are the lifts to get between floors. The areas marked in indigo are the heads. The green circle that is slightly fore and port of center is a vertical access tunnel for the flying members. The interior space of Liberty Station is approximately 450 ft long, 100 feet wide, and 100 feet high.

Deck 1

1. (Top of) Arboretum: This vast chamber exists both as a supplement to the atmospheric reprocessors, but also to provide a more Earthlike environment. The air doesn't seem so processed. This is the level where people can enter. There is a thick layer of soil in which a wide variety of plants, grasses, and trees grow. There is also an artificial pond, and one fake tree to conceal the lift. The walls and ceiling contain gigantic panels of ultra hard, steel wire lined, plastic and ceramic panes to allow in sunlight. These panes are coated with a layer of liquid crystal that keeps these windows shaded most of the time, to guard against the hazards of sunlight without a shielding atmosphere. This coating makes the panes virtually opaque from the outside.

2. Pool Area: This includes the pool, hot tub, and sauna.
a. Swimming Pool: Though not an Olympic sized pool, it is a good-sized pool, comparing favourably to most hotels. As in the arboretum, the ceiling is meant to let in sunlight; it is made of the same materials as the windows there. A rarely used feature is that the roof here can be opened; as on the hangar deck a force field keeps the atmosphere in. The high ceiling allows for a fairly high diving board on the deep end.
b. Men's Lockers
c. Women's Lockers
d. Sauna and Deck: Besides the sauna on the inside of the box like room, the structure is reinforced, and is low enough that the roof of the sauna can be used for resting or laying out. Half a dozen chaise loungers are kept there.

3. Transporter Room: This room holds both the teleport pad that the CoJ have been using for several years for transportation between Earth and Liberty Station, and the Koezar transdimensional Gate. The teleporters have been refined to the point that transport between two teleport units is fairly quick; however, teleporting to or from a random site still requires several minutes for the remote encoding or decoding.

The Gate can open into any of the five identical units on Champions Island, in Champions Cavern, the Aerie, the Radio Ranch main house or the International Hero Hall of Fame and Museum Carriage House. There are also teleporter stations located at these locations, as well as in the Legion of Champions Museum, the Crusaders Memorial Museum, the Pitcher's Mound and a few homes of various Champions.

4. General Meeting Room: This room is the room the Champions usually use for meetings. It is a large, circular room. In the center is a dais about three feet high and three feet in diameter that is in fact a hologram emitter. Extending out from the holo-dais is a bull's eye pattern of rings; a walkway, a ring workstations, chairs, another walkway, another ring of workstations, more chairs and a final walkway form the concentric circles. Dividing the rings into quadrants are four walkways along the compass points. All the walkways are carpeted in a deep forest green. Within the quadrants, the front two workstations are connected, as are the three rear workstations. Each of the twenty workstations is a solid desk unit with a keyboard and monitor built in on one side, and workspace on the other.

5. Small Conference Room: This room has a table for up to eight people to sit at. It is used for small, usually closed-door meetings.

6. Women's Lockers

7. Men's Lockers

8. Gymnasium: It can be set up for a variety of sports, from basketball, to volleyball to gymnastics.

9. Sports Equipment Storage

10. Observation Booth

11. (Top of) Combat Simulation Room: This room is extra tall to allow for better simulations and takes up space on two decks. For safety reasons, there is no egress on this deck.


Deck 2

1. (Lower part of) Arboretum: The space is allocated where the soil and the pond water sit. There are no entrances on this level, and the lift only opens into the storage room.

13. The Magnetic Weight Room: This well windowed room is where the weight machine used by the superhumanly strong Champions is stored and used.

14. Observation Booth

15. Combat Simulation Room: A reinforced room used for a variety of combat training including super human sparring and automated combat drills. This is the lower half of room 11 on Deck 1, and has the entrance.

There is a variety of both table and chairs and comfortable couches and easy chairs for quiet working or reading.

20. Big Impressive Engine Room: This room contains a giagantic mock-up of a powerful matter-antimatter engine. It is so large that this room extends up to Deck 3. However, it is a lie. Inside the mock-up, there are stored half a dozen of Dr. Technon's "backpack" sized fusion reactors. This causes this room to register as the engine room on energy grid scans. The fact is that there are another dozen "power routing nodes" throuohout the ship that each are another reactor. The highly redundant system makes the power system difficult to disrupt.


Deck 5

1. Space Above Hangar

2. Staging Area: This area was designed for troop deployment. It is now the main entry way for people with the ability to fly. The entrances on the port and starboard side use a series of low intensity force fields to keep this room pressurised and atmosphericly sound even as the doors are open. Walkways extend down either side of the hangar so any of the lifts can be used to get here.


Deck 6

1. Hangar: This space is used for smaller ships to dock. It is large enough for the Liberator and the Champions' Spaceplane (i.e. the "Championship") to dock here, as well as visiting spaceships. As in the staging area, the hangar entryway uses low intensity force fields when the main door is open to prevent the need for airlocks.

2. Maintenance Areas: These workshops are to store equipment and to work on assorted maintenance projects. There are three of them to easily allow multiple projects to be worked on without the them being in one another's way.

GM Notes: Remember, the Gate system is faster for transport between CoJ bases. The Teleport system is conciously, comparatively, slow. It exists as a narrative tool to allow getting the Champions from point A to point B quickly. It has been limited specifically to avoid it being used as a deus ex machina. The guideline for using the teleporter for special tricks are that if it's clever and it actually moves the story forward the limitations can be bypassed. If it's players being lazy or it would be detrimental to the story, the limitations will prevent the teleport from "solving" the problem.
