I'll copypaste this from my notes.

OVERVIEW

In the early years of the Sol space expansion project, colony ships and corporate vessels sped outwards from Earth on plumes of incandescent fire. Their purpose was the colonization and exploitation of the farthest reaches of Mankind's cradle; asteroid mining, scientific outposts and enclosed colonies for the burgeoning human population of Luna and Earth were the rigor de jour.

The Yonaguni project, hidden deep beneath the icy mantle of Jupiter's sixth satellite, Europa, was a last-ditch effort by a besieged aerospace and submarine engineering corporation to reclaim some of its faltering market share. Within six months of construction commencing, FTL was discovered and the corporation went under, leaving Yonaguni in the hands of the swamped and neglectful Sol Colonial Services. With nothing else to do with such an outdated facility, it was marked down as a colony and minor industrial facility and left to moulder.

It is not a place for people seeking fame, money or respect - the only local industries are mining and fabrication. It is a place for people who want to be hidden, or for people who were never found - or for those with a perverse interest in the secrets that still lurk in the inky darkness of Europea's planetary ocean. There are strange and ancient forces alive beneath the icy crust, resentful of human intrusion, and with the rest of the Galaxy cut off from Yonaguni by radiation, orbital debris, and the tyranny of distance, nobody is coming to help you.

Your home facility is number thirteen of fifteen, and is the only currently maintained colony on Europa; the other outposts went dark decades ago, either from mass exodus or equipment failure. Sometimes, if you tune a radio to the right frequency, you can still hear dead men chattering on the comms as their years-old signals are belched back out of the darkness of the abyss.

FACTIONS

MINING AND INDUSTRY
The P&B Mining and Fabrication corporation leases the Yonaguni tertiary dome for the purposes of refining ore extracted from the moon's core; most of their money is made by selling it back to the Yonaguni government for use in repairs and resupply, but the remainder is either shipped up to the automated depots on the radiation-blasted surface or sold to other interests in the facility.
Roles: Foreman, Miner, Factory Worker, Shipping Clerk

SCIENCE AND DEVELOPMENT
A combined Skrell-Human scientific research body operating in the interests of the Lokran Biogenetics corporation occupies most of the secondary dome. Their facility is predominantly oriented towards studying samples taken from the deep ocean, including such oddities as intriguing and previously undocumented xenoforms, and the occasional set of bizarre artificial constructions deep in the silt of the ocean floor.
Roles: Scientist, Xenobiologist, Submarine Pilot, Field Technician

YONAGUNI CIVIL SERVICES
A lot of the independent industry in Yonaguni is made up of small businesses that frequently change names and hands, and in the absence of much input from outside, barter is reliably common. The engineers keep the hull maintained so you don't drown, and in exchange the gardeners make sure everyone has oxygen and food, and the doctors quell illnesses before they take root. Regardless, the standard of living on Europa is exceptionally poor.
Roles: Civil Engineer, Doctor, Janitor, Gardener, Citizen

EUROPA COLONIAL AUTHORITY
Solgov does not have a well-developed presence on Europa, as it is largely considered a pointless backwater. However, a handful of personnel are present representing the system government. For the most part, these roles deal with administration, day to day mediation, and in emergency cases, making desperate contact with the outside world.
Roles: Marshal, Petty Officer.

I like this.
I really really like this.
Also it would be a fun concept for the game to at random times make "Unknown Male" and "Unknown Female"
speak on some radio frequencies sometimes here have some:

Unknown male says, [144.6] "Damn it Derek! What the hell did you do to the engine?
Unknown male says, [144.6] "I didn't do anything!"
Unknown male says, [144.6] "The hell you didn't."

spooooooooooky

If no one minds, I'll write out a bit of Lore for Outpost One, Six, and Nine.



Outpost One Priority goal: Establishing initial settlement.
Part of Standard Yonaguni procedure, Outpost One was a small and cramped temporal site of opperations on Europa to help establish future colonies and begin basic enviromental evaluation. Although they were entirely unprepared for the Europa enviroment and the natural life within, they completed their mission and made all future colonies possible by identifying and constructing foundation sites throughout Europa at places of utility or interest to Yanoguni. Crew: Three Humans, twenty automated construction Drones, one Overseer-class AI.

Current State: Abandoned. Quickly being replaced by dedicated specalised colonies and platforms, all that remains of Outpost One today is a memorial among ruins at the site of it's construction; dedicated to the human crew that was lost due to a tragic glitch of the AI's programming.


Outpost Six
Priority goal: Dedicated Research and testing facility. Xenobiology and Xenoarchaeology. Secondary: Cybernetics.
Lead by Research Director Kasimo Yaeyama, Outpost Six made many breakthroughs in classified technology, and identified an estimated 23.9% of all organisms on Europa before it's demise. With news the top research facility on Europa going dark, share prices in the Yonaguni project fell even futher than they already had. With no additional xenotech being discovered, and without the funds to procure new staff, the decision to shutdown Outpost Six was quickly made. Crew prior to going dark: Ten Scientists lead by the Research Director, five "Correctional" Officers with permanant residence handling Secuirty duties, and estimated sixteen inmates used for unknown research.

Current state: Abandoned. After the closure of Outpost Six, many rumors began to spread about the unethical nature of the research that happend in the facility including the unknown fate of criminals who were dispatched there as an alternative to hard labour. Long range scans indicate the facility is mostly intact, although any attempts to enter the facility are strictly forbidden by all Authority. For anything that lies within, should be left to sleep.


Outpost Nine, later Galileo Correctional Facility Priority goal: Mining Ordanance storage, later Private Pirson.
Starting it's life as storage for the explosive Ordanance used in ice-cracking operations to locate theoretical mineral deposits, it was built with three-layered thick reinforced walls throughout the facility and employed minimal organic crew to reduce the possibility of any and all accidental detonations. It was quickly discovered in the first few years that the theoretical ore deposits didn't exist due to the ice being non-glacial; they don't make contact with the rocky surface, and don't have a chance to dislodge and collect minerals deposits.

With the ice-cracking plan being a complete failure, the project sold off what it could of the explosives and simply deposited the rest into a trench off-record. In an attempt make back any funds it could, they sold the facility to the Hawkesbury Foundation where it was prompty converted into the privately owned Galileo Correctional Facility. If being an inescapable prison miles under the ice surrounded by water and Alien wildlife wasn't enough, the entirety of staff was made of automated self-maintaining androids lead by the latest iteration of the Overseer-class AI; together making corruption impossible. The facility was well renowned as the place no man could escape from, and contained many of the worse criminals of it's age, for many years. This overconfidence would be it's downfall.

Unfortunately for Hawkesbury Foundation, the inmates managed to find a small quanity of the explosives the facility originally stored and used it in an attempt to destroy the Overseer and shut down it's legion of Synthetic Working-Joe Secuirty. This backfired terribly due to the inmates SEVERE underestimation of the explosives payload, in their attempt to breach the wall into the AI's chamber they accidentally blew up the entire east wing. With the debilitated AI attempting to comrephend what happend, it was unable to lock down the shutters in time to isolate the flooding; causing the entire facility to be compromised and flooded. Both the Synths and inmates were unprepared and either killed or deactivated by the events that transpired.

Current state: Abandoned, structually unstable. Multible hull breaches throughout facility. Completely written off by the Hawkesbury Foundation with a sucessfull lawsuit against the Yonaguni project due to negligence. The Facilities Overseer-AI is believed to remain active, due to it transmitting a priority report shortly after the events that caused the facility to be shutdown.

I can't believe I misspelt abandoned, then copy pasted it as the template for the rest still without realising I buggered it. Note to self, don't write lore when half asleep.

If nobody minds ill do Outpost 3- in an IC style.

begin:

::EUROPA OUTPOST FILE-OP3::
-----------OUTPOST#3-----------
Outpost 3 was a research outpost. It was specifically dedicated to only researching biological life forms on Europa. The outpost's crew was comprised of: (over the course of 10 years the crew was rotated with the same number of crew)
---1 Outpost Administrator
---ENGI AI system
--1 Research Director
-2 Biologist
-2 Microbiologist
--1 Chief engineer
-4 Engineer
--1 Chief Medical officer
-2 Medical Doctor

The outpost (over the course of its lifespan) had discovered, researched, and catalouged 1500 life forms (including subspecies of lifeforms).
The outpost was actually a resounding success, however it was abandoned when the engine had a critical malfunction, exploding half of the outpost, and flooding the rest. There were no survivors, apart from the ENGI AI system, which has been sending signals on reserve power.

:::OUTPOST3 COMMUNICATIONLOG::
[13:28] Johnothan Rehton [ENG] : What the hell is wrong with the engine? its overheating like crazy!
[13:29] ENGI AI system [ENG] : Unknown malfunction in the coolant unit has caused the engine to halt cooling.
[13:29] Johnothan Rehton [ENG] : And you thought it was a good idea not to tell us!?
[13:30] ENGI AI system [ENG] : This unit has been repairing the system, and did not calculate it necessary to inform you.
[13:30] Derek Hetor [ENG] : I dunno man, seems really suspicious, the engines been runnin' just fine for months now, what coulda made it malfunction like this?
[00:00] SKIPPING 2 HRS
[15:30] Johnothan Rehton [ENG] : Damn it Derek! What the hell did you do to the engine?
[15:31] Derek Hetor [ENG] : I didn't do anything!
[15:31] Johnothan Rehton [ENG] : The hell you didn't.
[00:00] SKIPPING 20 MINS

Spooky. Like how it leaves why it happened open to speculation.
