Avernus Station

Avernus Station is a space station situated in or near the Koprulu Sector.


The station's interior

The station was built on mineral and vespene gas deposits. By the Brood War, some deposits were depleted.[1]

During the Second Great War, Gabriel Tosh, an anti-Dominion spectre, sought to establish a spectre training facility on the station. It used jorium and terrazine stocks and a psionic waveform indoctrinator.[2]

  • The station originally shared the same design as Erebus Station.[4]
    With the release of the board game however, it was given its own design.
  • It may be named after the Avernus crater, the ancient name for the crater containing Lake Avernus in Italy.
