|Progress class Station|
The precise year when Zhukovsky was built remains unknown, but it is certainly the first installation built by the Coalition in a remote system that would later be charted as Omega-52. While the Coalition colonists were not too numerous, this station was enough to service all their needs. Around 700 A.S. the population started to grow, with more people coming from all over Sirius, either seeking their fortunes with Coalition ideology, or intending to reunite with representatives of the Alliance nations that their ancestors belonged to. Nowadays, Zhukovsky Station is used as a Recruiting Center and Diplomatic Center. Unlike most of the other Coalition Bases, the station more civilians than military, and it is not unheared of for leaders of groups not associated with the Alliance to be guests here. The Coalition also conducts its fighter training program here, utilizing the many docking bays to store and service a wide range of both state-of-the-art and derelict ships.
