Toggle Work Group description

“Whatever happens, we know”
Unlike what most people believe, space is no silent place. Constant chatter, background noise and different kinds of transmissions need to be managed, isolated, filtered, received and decoded. Radar & Comms operators are the eyes and ears of the station, as well as being the only authorized way to communicate with the outside. Personnel in this room is the very first to know what’s happening on the station and in the space beyond it. That’s why they are often required to keep the space around Icarus under control, identify incoming vessels and receive or transmit any type of transmission. Every Radar & Comms operator is a patient, focused and perceptive expert, perfectly capable of keeping the station’s communication schedule. Their primary task is to keep clear and viable lines of communication with the company, the Belt, Earth and Mars. Moreover, Kowmang considers itself a caring family, and knows how tough life on an small asteroid can be for its employees. The management understands the needs for personal communication, that’s why Radar & Comms has been authorized to accept and forward a limited quantity of personal messages, so that the employees can hear from their loved ones and feel less lonely.

Teaser: Sharp tongue and sharper spirit, Ibanez has something to say about everyone, and generally it's never something nice.
The radio operator is actually smart and competent, and very reliable when it comes to making the station equipment work. Too bad that communication with the external world is filtered by the moral lens of this religious belter. Always ready to lecture and to teach the ''right'' opinions to others, some think that Ibanez ended up in radio and communications to fulfill the dream of being a public speaker, or a preacher of some sort. Luckily, this dark and strong moral stance is mitigated by a smart wit and sense of humor, and the love for snappy jokes and gossip. Most people also notice that the radio techie is too friendly and forgiving towards management. What if all the gossip is actually a way to collect information to share with the white collars? That might not be true. What is certain, though, is that Ibanez contempts and rejects the violent methods of the extreme fringes of OPA, despite being a true Belter to the bone. That's because Ibanez joined a new spiritual cult that recently began to spread among Belters, preaching a non-violent way of life and a new hope for those who are now forced to consider the Expanse their only home. Belters don't need uprisings or political struggles, they need hope!

Relations: Ibanez's boss is Anders: it's not so bad working under this long face, even though Ibanez is often reprehended for abusing of the radio equipment. The other colleagues are not the best either: Caron is the person who most needs to hear a message of spiritual liberation, but is hidden behind a wall of rage and silence. Raisin is just noisy; Ibanez can't stand the colleague and is often vocal about it. Many follow the religious vision of Ibanez, but no one is more annoying than Kalu: the petty food lab technician behaves like a saint, halo and all. Someone should tell that angel-wannabe that we are all pacifists here, but evil will not stop in front of just a pretty smile! Kohler is a broken man, who could use a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on. Befriending a bartender could be useful to the religious cause, too bad Kohler is stubborn as hell. Stella is just a useless earthling junkie playing belter. A colleague from the other shift, Campbell, seems to have good ears to embrace the peaceful message of the cult! Donovan is an old friend, their bond dating back to Eros. Ibanez needs to watch out for Berg the miner, who doens't appreciate the anti-OPA propaganda.
