Stern view of ByChem Moneyspider, tethered to the moon-station Snobol

ByChem Moneyspider is a Gas Mining Refinery Ship registered as a research ship by the ByChem Corporation, under the command of Captain Akizk Taark Kass. When chartered to the Belnafaer system, for the Venturi Project, it was anchored to a moon of dry ice called Snobol by a 16 kilometer long cable, in orbit around the gas giant Venturi. Moneyspider was modified to serve as a base of operation for the Venturi Project; to extract bio-chemicals -- namely Cys-DE (Cys-DiEropadyne) and Meta-TI (Meta-Thilphidone) -- from the upper atmosphere of Venturi, by a a high-atmosphere floating extraction platform called Jetsom.

Crew[edit | edit source]

The crew is divided into three groups: The core group operates on Moneyspider; teams Alpha and Beta takes shifts on the Jetsom platform. The teams rotate every 38 days -- when Snobol orbits the closest to Venturi.

A disaster relating to a substance called "Matrix" doomed the project and most of the crew.
