|The Alpha Isles
An unusually small endeavor built on Theta 122, Atlas Base was the brainchild of notable scientist Frederick Immelmann. Acting as the administrator to a colony fitted for approximately one hundred, Immelmann commissioned Atlas Base with a single-minded mission; to explore the depths of and area surrounding the planetoid known as Theta 122. The base itself is tiny; unlike most other Federation installations, it was designed for compactness and functionality, with limited amenities. The base is composed of three individual sections, constructed concentrically - a Habitat Ring, Work Ring and Support Ring.
Atlas Base resides near several small water sources, and supplements its replicator rations with grown fruits and vegetables, as much of the energy allotted for replicators is used in the pursuit of scientific endeavors. The base itself is poorly defended; a single small ion cannon is perched in the middle of an open complex, and a weak deflector shield is usable. Aside from these minimal tactical advantages, the colony is mostly unguarded, depending on its small size and relative obscurity for protection.
