Habitats are impressive structures that stand as a beacon in the darkness of space. Travelers flock to them in search of a place where they can rest, relax, and have repairs performed on their ships. Beyond these services, Habitats are built with hundreds of separate living quarters placed in the central tower structure. These living quarters can be rented or purchased, allowing for brief stays or permanent housing.

While not incredibly expensive or even overly lavish in their design, the living conditions on Habitats are preferable in some cases to life on border colonies. The living quarters here attract a certain type of traveler, the wandering nomad that lives his or her life out in the open stars, stopping to rest only at a Habitat for a day or two and then moving on.
