Starbase 249 - Medical and Related Science's Centre

The year is 2393.

Honoring the heritage of the past and celebrating the challenges of the future, Starbase 249 is being raised from the ashes, destined to be a purpose built Medical and Related Science’s Centre; code-named MARS Facility.

Once a thriving hub of activity in the middle of a federation trading sector, Starbase 249 stood as a proud icon in the Omega Piscium System just above the planet ORAXA playing host to a range of trading groups and sheriff all at the same time. However, because of disagreements with regional powerhouse trading groups Starfleet agreed to withdraw for a short period. As such, the station has since lain dormant, disused and isolated from Starfleet use for over 18 months.

This period has allowed Starfleet the opportunity to actively and collectively rethink the purpose of the base. Whilst one priority was to re-establish the trade routes through the base, Starfleet wanted a more humanitarian purpose that would signify its original routes of exploration and correct the mistakes of becoming to heavily involved with the trade aspects of the systems.

The outcome – the MARS Facility – a medical and related science’s research outpost.

The station was brought back to life by a group of specialist engineers, led by the able and capable leading engineer and then commanding officer, Commander Caleb Tascioni. This team laid the groundwork on the new internal design for the specialist centre as well as kick starting its re-launch in preparation for the new command staff to join.

The continued task for the station is to continue their research work in various fields, continue to upgrade the research centre, ensure that ships that dock with Starbase 249 are fully re-supplied and repaired, and build a good relationship with the peoples of this area. The station is capable of using the latest technology and has made the hanger bay doors able to fit the largest of starship designs through.

Okay, for the record, having served in US military. Do not salute indoors! Period! It is an insult to the officer saluted, and an insult to your unit when you do so. Within the confines of a starship or starbase, you are indoors. This is not the only site that gets this rant from me, since I sim on many. Respect is earned, not given, and no marine would salute indoors. Calling a superior SIR or MA'AM is enough, and the officer in charge should reprimand anyone who salutes indoors.

Also, do not salute in the field, that gives snipers a clear target as to who is the leader. Not meaning to ruffle feathers, but this is realism, which I look for in simming.
