In TE 62 the Imperial Department of Technology, under a mandate from the Imperial Council, began an ambitious program of placing automated rescue stations throughout the Galaxy where they would be convenient to primary traffic lanes.

Each Lifestation contains life-support equipment & supplies, communications, medical equipment, and basic repair parts.

By TE 300, there were millions of Lifestations throughout the Galaxy, with at least a dozen orbiting within each settled planetary system.
