Ayn Rand station was a research station established in orbit over the planet Fountainhead, in a spherical star cluster close to the Milky Way Galaxy. The station itself is actually the capital of Fountainhead, as it is the head of government and economic functions. It was the original home of the Nietzschean race, as Geneticist Paul Museveni created Homo Sapiens Invictus, the Nietzscheans, in the station and as they propagated, they spread down to the planet. The station was destroyed with the bombardment of the planet Fountainhead by the High Guard in retaliation for betraying the Systems Commonwealth.
