Upwell’s Keepstar Citadel is designed to be a major or primary headquarters for large alliances and coalitions. While all citadels are capable of mooring ships, Keepstar citadels are the first structures capable of supporting the docking of supercapital ships. While the ability to house ships of all sizes, including supercapitals, is a massive benefit in itself, the Keepstar is also able to make use of the Standup Arcing Vorton Projector Doomsday weapon.
According to Hard Knocks inc. planning on building the first Keepstar began as soon as Upwell Consortium announced the development of Citadels some months ago. While component collection proceeded with few complications, Hard Knocks claimed that the contracted builder had plotted not to hand over the Citadel as originally agreed. Intelligence was allegedly received that the Capsuleer previously contracted to build Fort Knocks was in the employ of another corporation. Due to these allegations, Hard Knocks decided to contract another Capsuleer for the build. With these measures in place, Hard Knocks Inc. successfully onlined the first Keepstar Citadel at 02:17 on Thursday, May 19th, YC 118.
The Citadel has been named Fort Knocks, and orbits a lava planet, giving it that “supervillain lair” look all the best alliances are going for.
Shortly after the Keepstar finished the onlining process, Hard Knocks Inc. organized a test firing at Heift’s Revelation using the Keepstar's special Doomsday weapon.
