Starbase 214, located in the Penthara Sector, is an outdated outpost converted into a forward listening post for Task Force 72, charged with monitoring situations in The Wastelands.

Background

Originally constructed in the Algol system of the Alpha Quadrant in 2284, the station was considered state of the art and was built on the very edge of Federation claimed territory. SB-214's role in the fleet swiftly developed with the times and by 2320 it was nothing more than a research outpost and a resupply point for those vessels far from home and on deep space exploration duties. Eventually, the Federation's territory expanded beyond Algol and with the expansion came the need to move the station to a new location. It was a massive undertaking at the time, requiring several Starfleet vessels, but the station was soon relocated to the Penthara Sector. As Starfleet's attention gradually shifted to regions much further 'north', and even to the 'east', the borderlands largely became forgotten. Over time, and after years of neglect, the Starbase became little more than a nuisance to those stationed there as they sought to keep her running.

Operations

Lacking any real significance in the grand scheme of Starfleet's operations, Starbase 214 isn't even afforded a full crew compliment to carry out her mission as a forward listening post. In her new role, since the station is too antiquated to function as a resupply depot, the station is tasked with the job of monitoring the Wastelands for any peculiar activity and reporting it to Starfleet Command. Every so often the station is visited by starships tasked with operations near the border of the Wastelands. During one such visit by the USS Brier-Ridge, the station received its first significant upgrade in a century when her sensor suite was retrofitted and her sensor range suitably enhanced.
