Star Fleet Academy Class of Y143
Battle stations are major support facilities built along the Federation frontier. These stations serve as navigational beacons, resupply and repair ports, logistics control, and a safe harbor. Most importantly, combined with the Outpost sensor stations, they are the hubs of the early-warning sensor network. They are typically found on the border where the station’s powerful sensors can easily detect ships crossing the neutral zone. They provide both civilian and military services and are often the social centers of the local sub-sector.
