Hyperion-8 is a Maximum Security Galactic Authority Detention Facility based on a moon orbiting an unknown planet in the Dark Matter Universe. The facility has multiple wings, and is designed to be inescapable. In addition, the facility has an infirmiry, guest quarters and at least one armoury. The facility has numerous ground based anti-ship defences.
Hyperion-8 operates an effective prisoner control and anti-riot system whereby, once activated, a high pitched noise fills the target area rendering persons unconscious. The GA guards are protected from this by a small in-ear device.
