MEL-One Waystation was the most important location in the colonization of Sol System for fifty years. Parked at the Moon-Earth L1 (MEL1) libration point, it served as the first pit-stop along humanity's highway into space.

Cheap energy rendered it irrelevant. In spite of new development around MEL1, "Old Melone" Waystation spent over 900 years alternating between "ghost town" and "historical landmark" until UNS budget cuts opened the door to a free-enterprise solution: Mall-One.

Mall-One holds the distinction of being one of the largest open-plan centrifugal-gravity stations in the galaxy, and as such is highly prized by Parkata Urbatsu runners and other aerobatics enthusiasts.
