Sherali Daya stayed away from the epic-scale work of her great-grandfather for years, focusing instead on doing regular commission work. But as her reputation & skill grew so did her aspirations, and in 1192 she accepted a commission from a Fleet Admiral to create a new biosphere for the Naval Base at Ansirk, home of 7 million Naval personnel.
The biosphere - to reside strictly within the installation, as the world is airless - is to emphasise the motif "Controlled Fury". This theme is sympolized by the Terran lions, Vilani anshuui, and Reginian LiClok which stalk some of the corridors and parks of the station. The predators (actually as safe as dogs) are simply at the top of the station's "biosystem", which extends down to the carefully bred rats and tailored airborne viruses.
Probably the most charming change to the station has been the introduction of perenay's; a geneered variation of the white dove, with rainbow-coloured wing feathers. The ones at the station have been bred for low-G flight, and are 'wired' to preform complex aerobatic flight patterns and make a most haunting call.
