Hello. I'm here to be unpopular. Your frustration is understandable but less justified than you think. Allow me to explain. The seraph station is in geosynchronous *near earth* orbit. That means it stays in the same place in the sky. Which means it is being held in place by some form of lift. Because if it were not, it would simply fall out of the sky and crash to earth. The reason why the ISS stays in orbit is because it is traveling at 4.76 miles per second above earth atmosphere, it has periodic station keeping burns to adjust its velocity and orbit because if it goes any faster its orbit will increase, widening the distance Between it and earth. Slower, and it will crash to earth. People aboard the space station experience a sensation similar to weightlessness because they are moving in the same speed and direction, but they are still falling towards earth. They're just moving so fast they are in a continuing state of missing the ground. If you stopped the ISS dead in the sky like Seraph station is, it would accelerate downward at 32 feet per second until it hit atmosphere and began disintegrating from fiction, acceleration continuing until the falling objects reach terminal velocity which is the speed at which an object ceases to accelerate due to atmospheric forces pushing back against you, ask any sky diver. So yes. Whatever space magic is keeping the Seraph station aloft, if it is not also keeping you aloft individually, you would absolutely be able to fall to your eventual death. That's why it was so important to place the John Webb telescope at a Lagrange point. Because effectively it is orbiting in such a way that it stands still. From our perception anyway. Another boring fact. You'd weigh more on the dark side of the moon than the side facing earth. Not a lot more, but measurably more. Anyway all objects that have a geostationary orbit around earth have an incredibly high orbit and are moving at tremendous speeds, you can actually measure time dilation on weather satellites so their internal clocks are set to run faster to compensate for time being perceived slower on earth. It's impossible for something to orbit that close and be geostationary without a continuous station keeping force. So. Yes. You should be able to fall off the station. That said. The people who designed this content absolutely do not know that, so just blame laziness.
