The Avalon has an aboretum - a botanical garden that acts as the ship's bar. There are no bartenders however, there are small areas for the replication of drinks.
Though it is unknown how effective it is, it was successful in block Noble Defender's Concordance whilst he was on the ship. While this prevented him from contacting his brother, it did save him from the effects of the Cyryn AI that was unleashed by Hans and Good Idea.
There have been a number of changes to the senior bridge crew on the Avalon. Major Chro was relieved of his position after he murdered the Pac-Ha on board the ship. This Might Be a Good Idea joined the Avalon after being rescued on Border-17, only to be kidnapped by the Screaming Valor from the Third Arm Stellar Survival Directory. Simulatenously, Noble Defender found himself on the Avalon following the destruction of Cyryn 7-20. Sira left the crew to incubate a god following the events on the Ilatim world of Thoreceus. Fractal Bright joined the crew on an unofficial basis after her meeting them on the ice world of Link.
Following the events of Concordance, major changes were made to the senior bridge crew of the Avalon. Rayk and Louvin were sent on secondment to the Screaming Valor, and Tkaah, Nydar and Noble Defender from the Brightest Eye were incorporated into the senior bridge crew. Fractal Bright subsequently left the ship during The Sanctum to hunt down the Pac-Ha. Kayla Torvis joined the crew as First Officer after The Terran Intervention.
