Starbase 72, located in the Minos Korva system, is the Headquarters for Task Force 72.

Background

Starbase 72 is a Spacedock Class Starbase which was completed in 2382. Prior to its present state, the Starbase began as offices on the planet below, and then transferred its flag to a Regulus class station in orbit which was hastily constructed after the Federation-Cardassian War.

Less than ten lightyears from the Cardassian border, Starbase 72 is a hub of trade for the region. Every ship is subjected to routine inspections, including Starfleet vessels. Only though close management has the starbase continued to thrive in such a volatile environment.

Delegations from Romulus, Cardassia and the Breen homeworld are welcomed aboard, and even have areas of the station reserved for them, though only the Ambassadors are allowed to have personal security. Dedicated Starfleet Security elements protect those decks and have thwarted various assassination attempts because of it.

Operations

Over a dozen starships are permanently attached to the Starbase, and the variety of classes enables the Starbase to conduct a variety of missions in the sector, ranging from humanitarian and relief to defense and escort. Also assigned to Starbase 72 is the Task Force's Command Staff. They have been provided a dedicated section of the starbase, including a dedicated communications array and computer core, each independent from the starbase's systems. This allows them to operate completely independent from the starbase's infrastructure, making it much more difficult to compromise systems or steal data.

As the Starbase provides regional support, elements from each of Starfleet's branches are present, including the Core of Engineers, Marines, and Starfighters.
