Hailston Station is a Starfleet Facility operating on Hailston Prime. Hailston Station was operating in Task Force 93 of Bravo Fleet. Hailston Station was formed to protect the people of Hailston Prime and to defend the Raeyan Sector's Border. Hailston used to control Starfleet's assets in their part of the sector and acted as a Forward Operating Base for several exploratory and defensive Task Groups. In 2388 Task Force 93 handed operations over towards the Spera and still keeps diplomatic embassy on the planet.

Hailston is a peaceful colony located on the edge of the Raeyan Sector. It is made up of a peaceful humanoid species known as the Spera. The Spera are more interested in Science and Technology over military and defense. Hailston is an M-Class planet which is considered one of the most beautiful and enjoyable planets in the Raeyan Sector. It is visited by citizens from all over the Federation, but the planet is not as well known as Risa.

History

In 2387, the colony of Hailson was attacked by a pirate militant group which had been attacking civilian vessels in the Raeyan Transit Corridor, however Starfleet could not find where they came from. They have been a nuisance to Starfleet and Civilian vessels all over the sector and have been a goal of may Commanding Officer's to take down this group.

At the beginning of these attacks, the USS Sherman responded as it was in the area. They put together information from several vessels who encountered them attacking civilian supply vessels. After the Sherman submitted its report, Starfleet began to take a more serious look at this new threat.

Starfleet’s defensive forces were not too strong along that border, so they decided to place a more permanent presence in that area and also to try and take down that group. In 2387 Starfleet set up a Federation and Starfleet Operations center in the capital city on Hailston with several divisional facilities outside of the city.

The USS Sherman will be protecting the area along with a few other vessels along that border. Their mission is to protect the outer planets of the Raeyan Sector from the pirate organization.

Facilities

Hailston Station is the name assigned for all of Starfleet's assets on Hailston Prime. Each Facility has its own shuttlebay with at least two shuttlecrafts.

Stellar Cartography

Hailston System

Hailston System Map

The Hailston system is located on the border of the Raeyan Sector and unexplored space. Within the Hailston System are five core planets. Hailston Prime has not been developed as much as say Earth, however it is still a beautiful and advanced planet. The Spera try to preserve life of any kind, they build their cities in places that are not harmful to the other living beings on the planet.

Hailston Prime

The core planet of the Hailston System. Located at the very center with a population of about 3,000,000, excluding Starfleet personnel. Hailston Prime is the forward operating base of Task Force 93. The Starfleet personnel located here control all of Starfleet's assets in the area. Half of the Raeyan Sector is under control by Faltan Station, the other half is under command by Hailston. In orbit of Hailston Prime is a small docking port first created by the Spera but majorly outfitted by Starfleet with weapons. This station holds a Defiant Class Garrison vessel, the USS Icarus, and the ability to have three other medium sized vessels.

Ninurta

A small moon orbiting Hailston Prime. There is a mining colony there as it is rich in natural minerals used to power Hailston Prime's reactors, the Spera's starships, and also to be donated to the Federation.

Surya

Another small moon orbiting Hailston prime. It houses the fleet yards for the Spera's starships, which has mostly been destroyed. Currently being rebuilt with the help of Starfleet. The planet holds a small colony of Spera with resources to help repair the station in orbit.

Tao

Tao is a small planet on the edge of the system. It holds an abandoned research facility, the planet surface is unlivable due to a toxic radiation leak of dangerous particles in the atmosphere. There is a myth among the Spera claiming that the planet is haunted with the men and women lost when the research facility exploded.
