Saint-Exupery's construction was completed in 551 A.G.S. . It replaced a base named Oullins that previously served as a transit point for some of the shipments going to and from Lorraine. Over time, the need for a shipping platform in Lorraine' orbit was no longer present. Bouvet Space Entertainment chose the location to build the off-world base of operations for their cruise liner fleet, and chose Solar Engineering to build and administer the station. Since then, Bouvet's presence was reduced to a necessary minimum, and Solar used the station for a wide array of services, including short term off-world recreation, ship-to-ship transfers, and storage of valuable or hazardous cargo that is not allowed planetside.
Saint-Exupery appeared in New Paris' news headlines several times when journalists discovered the presence of Brigands and even Maquis onboard the station. Solar Engineering succeeded in discrediting most of those allegations, however. The corporation kept large parts of the station off-limits for the civilian population, and with the Crown-sanctioned merger of Solar's assets, newly administrating EFL Oil and Machinery uses and governs the station for much of the same purpose.
