The Spire is the central government building in the exact middle of Hope, the Keeper capitol. It’s construction is a marvel of modern engineering, stretching almost three miles into the night. The building is the official meeting point for the Council and Admiralty, and is the official home of the President himself.
The Spire’s more technical capabilities were recently demonstrated during the 1163rd Keeper Military Assembly, in which numerous defensive turrets extended from hidden ports to engage identified hostile craft while Aerospacecraft hurled out of a number of tactical docking bays. It is also believed that the Spire is outfitted with countermeasure launchers, ECM systems, and even shields. Some think that the massive power draw these defenses would require means they would only be activated in the event of a prolonged attack, explaining their inactive state during the attack. Others say this could be becaus ethe systems aren’t effective at extremely close range. The Keeper government has refused to affirm either theory.
