Stanton 4b | “Clio”
Pink! The sky’s pink! Selling this place is going to be easy. I don’t even need to do any on-foot surveys. Everything that’s worth seeing is visible from the cockpit. Where to start? The big glaciers with the triangle-shaped rocks? The fields of snow? The green oceans (green!!!)?
They aren’t even frozen. I can’t believe it. A place this cold with liquid on the surface. A thousand creds says the rich tecchies in New Babbage’ll be taking luxury cruises up here in ten years, tops.
Got to figure out a way to downplay the blizzards.

Clio (Stanton 4b) is the largest microTech moon. Named after the ancient Greek muse of history, Clio reminds those on microTech to remember that “their work stands on those who came before them.”
Clio’s defining feature is a series of liquid oceans covering much of its surface. Snowy mountains, reminiscent of the famous microTech slopes, cover the other half of the surface, with unique and distinctly shaped icebergs meshing the difference. Regions with mountains and valleys that slide abruptly into the ocean at the coast and wide fields of white snow make this moon a picturesque destination.
The hazy pink and green sky and jade oceans give this moon an alien feel, unmatched by anything else in the Stanton system.
