Amity Outpost Layout

The Spire

Eiffel Tower-like communications array, capped with three tall thin structures. Directly underneath the array is an observation deck and a restaurant called "Lighthouse"

Lighthouse Restaurant

Very upmarket, silver service. Can be reserved for official diplomatic functions.

Grand Mezzanine

The Grand Mezzanine is a lavish section located at the topmost part of the station under The Spire. It consists of a Mezzanine level and a Ground level.

The top half of Copernicus Center runs vertically through the middle of the Grand Mezzanine.

The Spire is visible through the transparent roof of the Grand Mezzanine.

Mezzanine Level

The Mezzanine level contains establishments against the outer wall of the station. The inner part of the "ring" contains a large walkway, and a rail that allows for viewing of the ground level below.

Two flights of steps leads from the Mezzanine level to the Ground level below.

Establishments:

  • Three Stripes - Upmarket spirits and cocktails bar
  • Custom fashion retailer using cutting edge holodeck and replicator tech
  • Brew Continuum - First location in the Delta Quadrant (possibly one of several on Amity)
  • Wet Goods Tavern & Karaoke Bar
  • The Glommer and Beagle Pub - Smaller than Wet goods, it has a modern decor, to the point where it was almost plain and drab - save for the massive illustration of a Glommer on one the long walls, and a Beagle (with "Porthos" handwritten in small letters underneath) on the other. The bar area is situated in the center of the pub, with tables and chairs around the outside of the area. There are many stools that are lined up around the entire long bar.
  • A ship sales place (new and used)
  • An "entertainment" leisure holodeck run by an Orion (who is officially above board but questionable)
  • Art gallery
  • Antiquities store
  • Medical center (Has two auxiliary sickbays attached for emergencies)
  • Federation Diplomatic Corps/embassy office
  • Federation History Museum

  • "Mezzanine" train stop.
  • Glass elevator that leads up to The Spire observatory and Lighthouse restaurant.

Copernicus Center

The Copernicus Center is essentially a "skyscraper" located within the outpost that has retained its original name as a tribute to the station's previous life. The structure rises from the bottom of the shuttle bay, up into the Grand Mezzanine all the way to the top of the station, where it meets with the base of the Spire. 66 metres (216 feet) height. 15 floors, Ambassador Rivi Vataix’s office is located on the 15th floor. Starfleet Ops is located on First Floor.

Levels 1 to 6 are assigned to Starfleet, and look out onto the Shuttle Bay. Levels 7 to 15 are assigned to the Federation Diplomatic Corps, and look out onto the Grand Mezzanine.

Federation Diplomatic Corps have access to all Starfleet levels, and vice-versa.

Shuttlebay

Contains all Starfleet auxiliary craft, excluding the Independence-B which is located on Terminal-A.

3x shuttlebay entrances, situated under the Grand Mezzanine section. Exclusively Starfleet area, civilians need clearance to enter.

Each bay entrance is about the width of a Galaxy or Sovereign class main shuttlebay.

The three docking bays lead into one circular "donut" shaped docking bay, the space inside is all connected. The lower half of Copernicus Center (including Starfleet Ops on the bottom floor) is located at the centre of the shuttlebay.

The shuttlebay is divided into three connected sections - Alpha, Bravo and Delta.

Supplies can be stored for ships operations, and repairs can be conducted if a ship is so badly damaged that repairs on the outside of the Outpost could be slower than made in a pressurized atmosphere.

The shuttlebay is 575 meters (1886 ft) in diameter.

Habitat Ring

The Habitat Ring contains apartments and different named districts. Each district contains a different theme, and can contain different environmental conditions. Most districts are named after significant places in the Federation, with the exception of Paxau which is named after a region on Talax. 392 metres in diameter. 49 metres in height.

The park itself is a botanic garden cared for by the outpost's botanists and gardeners and is populated by small organic offerings from across the Federation. Small openings throughout the garden host holographic panels programmed to display religious or cultural symbolism. The objective of the peace park is to provide a refuge of peace and serenity for all. It may be of service to many beings. It also serves as a venue for teaching.

One section of peace park contains Washington DC cherry blossom trees (which were originally gifted to Washington DC from Japan centuries earlier) The park is divided into several "Micro-climates" to cater for different types of flora from different regions (equivalent of multiple botanical gardens)

Situated in section directly under the habitat ring. Approximately 205 meters diameter at the base, and 220 meters at the roof. 32 meters in height.
