|Saint-Etienne Space Colony|
|Massenet class Station|
Saint-Etienne was built in 429 AGS by Tannier Industries as one of the more remote space colonies in Gallic space. Circa 610 AGS, when Tannier was restructured, the site was purchased by Ile-de-France Shipping. Before the IDF transfer, the facility was not prospering. With a capacity of 8,000, it housed less than 3,000 people, and the station was notorious for a high unemployment and poor accomodation standards.
IDF dismissed most of the crew and moved out the inhabitants. The station's structure was renewed and expanded with new habitats. In 619 AGS, Saint-Etienne was re-opened for settlers, becoming one of the more convenient and affordable space settlements in Gallic space. Saint-Etienne lies away from major trade routes and areas of pirate activity, making the colony very safe and calm to live in. The facility does not have notable industrial capacity, but it is almost fully self-sufficient, with hydroponic farms and food production available to serve the colonists' needs. The station also produces a wide array of Luxury Consumer Goods, most of which are exported to other stations and planets by IDF and their partners, allowing the station's residents to enjoy a comfortable middle class income.
