Niko Tanaka is an exoplanet Geologist working for the largest space exploration company on Earth - Mountain Stronghold Corp. It's 150 years in the future and space exploration is a commerical enterprise. Pioneer teams are sent out to habitable planets to conduct in person research of the natural resources, and to set up working settlements for colonists to arrive. Many planets are simply mined for profit and others are colonised - space is now big business!
For her latest mission, Niko has found herself with the Everest Pioneer Team on Planet 579a in the Milky Way Galaxy, named Aether. The planet Aether has rich biodiversity, an acceptable atmosphere for humans and slightly higher gravity than Earth. It's Niko's job to catelogue all the different types of rocks found on the new planet, analysing them in the Rock Analysis Machine (a 3D mini in the Space Pioneers collection) and figuring out the value of precious metals within. Is it worth starting a mining operation on the planet? Niko will determine this. What area is stable enough for building a permanent settlement? Niko will figure this out.
Niko Tanaka is part of the Space Pioneers Collection of 3D miniatures, which was first available on our Patreon channel in February 2021. Our Patreon creates different collections of sci-fi miniatures each month - https://www.patreon.com/printminis.
This download includes Niko alongside two alien planet bases to display her - a 40mm and 30mm option. The downloadable STLs contain the 3D miniatures and all the pre-supported files too. They have been thoroughly print tested, so you can simply slice & print!
Don't forget to check out the rest of the collection on our store! You can buy the full set of all sixe Pioneer characters at a saving here: https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-161500
