Mothballs

This is defined as the process of storing a starship or spaceship in parking orbit for long periods. It also applies to certain sorts of orbital facility, such as a Shipyard or Repair Yard

Ships can be mothballed and stored in stable orbit at any colony that is ‘Average’ or better (they have the facilities to keep the mothballed ships monitored and safe.
Mothballing does not cost SV, but takes 30 days (during which time the normal SV of the ship is still payable). Bringing ships out of mothball takes 75 days, and the full SV must be paid for the entire period of recommissioning.

A Shipyard or Repair Yard can be mothballed too. The mothballing does not cost extra SV, but takes 50 days during which time the normal SV of the yard must be paid. Bringing a yard out of mothballs takes 200 days, and the full SV must be paid during the period of recomissioning.
