« Back to Specs



Regula I is a Class 2 space station complex, a type of Federation starbase design that first entered service in the mid 2200s and is still currently in production. While not as large or prolific as the Class 3 and Class 4 starbases (including Stardock-class fleet hubs), the Class 2 is optimized for mission profiles calling for logistics, surveillance, intelligence, communications, administration, and research. Like all Class 2 station complexes, Regula I's design is modular in nature which allows the facility to be customized with the appropriate extensions for ongoing scientific research and planetary investigation. In its current configuration, the starbase is aligned in a zenith orientation and includes a large support module on the top, a central core module in the middle, four tree hub connection modules for attached research facilities, and a large storage tank cluster at the bottom along side a long-range communications array. In addition to these primary assemblies, three toroid modules are integrated into the heart of the complex. These include an escape pod module, an arboretum module, and a recreational module.

Regula I was originally commanded by Dr. Carol Markus whose famous research contributions to Project Genesis revolutionized the planetary sciences. First entering service in 2278, Regula I was briefly decommissioned in 2385 and disassembled. New exploratory missions within the Mutara Sector -- one of nine sectors located within the Pleiades Cluster -- have recently revealed additional planets of interest, and in 2391, the station's core modules were towed to the (insert) system. Regula I is now situated in low orbit around the planet (insert), approximately 420 km above the world's surface. The starbase is crewed by a small contingent of Starfleet personnel but the bulk of the 60-person crew are civilian researchers and technicians. Advanced sensor arrays and a robust shuttlecraft compliment allow the station's personnel to observe and analyze data directly from the station, as well as embark upon surface-bound away missions as needed.
