Grid C3, Alpha Quadrant
Originally Roosevelt Station was on an Asteroid which was named Garen Epok, which was involved in the Breen Crisis when during late 2386, a small fleet of Breen ships tried to gain control of the small asteroid Garen Epok and the Federation base on it, which was Roosevelt Station. What ensued has become known as the Battle of Garen Epok, which resulted in a Federation victory. One of the few open engagements between the two powers, the battle had certainly the result of heightening the tensions along the the borders.
While Roosevelt was based on the asteroid, this would not be its permanent home. An abandoned and rundown Cardassian Space Station was discovered nearby. Starfleet determined that this would make a valuable asset in this sector. Early looks at that station's interior determined that the Nor was a bit different than its sisters. The Federation appealed to the Cardassians, who refused to help them in getting the systems operational. This resulted in the Nor-class station being left abandoned for a while longer. It wasn’t until the middle of 2388 that the Federation decided to send a group of Engineers that could get the systems operational.
In September 2388, the station was officially named Roosevelt Station. The former asteroid would be used for Intelligence gathering in the sector, and would be supported by the nearby Nor installation. The Station is still only half operational with the only areas that can be used is two upper docking pylons and three inhabitable decks including the Promenade and Operations. The rest of the station is still undergoing refits and overhauls and should be finished by the end of the year.
By the end of 2388, Roosevelt Station was completed. It has become the new home for the USS Cairo and a small Task Group under the command of Brigadier General Katana Leah. Roosevelt Station has also been permanently assigned to Task Force 72 and the 4th Fleet.
