R1 Defense Outpost

The R1 Defense Outposts are common bases to find throughout Federation space. Though not truly civilian endeavors, many civilian organizations working on projects sponsored by the Federation in general or Starfleet in particular have been known to utilize R1 Defense Outposts.

The R1 Outpost acts first and foremost as a listening post on the frontier, its long-range sensors tracking ship movements along the Federation borders and star lanes. This intelligence information in invaluable to the continued defense of the Federation. The base is armed primarily to warn off possible attackers but cannot itself rebuff a dedicated heavy cruiser intent on taking down the outpost. In this regard all R1 Outposts rely heavily on in area patrol ships to keep itself secure.

Design Notes:

The Regula 1 Starbase was seen a few times, but in those instances it never came under attack or even showed that it had any
real firepower to speak of. I am going with the FASA interpretation on this one to at least create a base that might be interesting
to fight if need be.
