FD-12 are the shielding systems used on Federation Battleships of the ZEUS class Station shields are usually divided into semi-independant and overlapping sectors. A REDOUBT has 3 sectors approximately 900m long, divided into quadrants around the station. It is possible for shields to fail in a single quadrant and to cover quadrants with weakened extended shields from neighboring quadrants.

Begun in 2415, shortly after the destruction of the original STAR CORE- class station, it was just recently completed and opened in the Iotia system, a stone's throw from it's original location. DS13 is a new class of space station, the REDOUBT-class. The design, like that of the Starbase KAPPA, is based on the Hospice-class Medical Outpost. Unlike Starbase KAPPA which was converted from an older station and retrofitted and enlarged to serve as a command starbase, DS13's design is built from the ground up as a large command starbase. While the basic specifications are identical to Starbase KAPPA, the computer and communications systems have been entirely redesigned and are intended, from the ground up, for control and coordination of a military area of operations. DS13 will act as the headquarters for the KRIMA Expeditionary Force. With a permanent occupation capacity of 50,000, it is larger than most Federation starbases. Only a handful of orbital stations, including the fleet command starbases and Star Fleet Engineering Starbase ZETA, are larger. This number represents a nearly 14-fold increase from the previous station's size. Also, the base was refit with an internal dock which allows the base to service up to four light cruisers or multiple smaller ships. DS13 has a number of free-floating space docks in orbit which have been installed to supplement the capabilities of the base for repair and refit. Most starships with substantial damage are repaired to the point which they are spaceworthy and then sent to ship yards for overhaul because of the efficiency of these yards. The nearest yard to DS13 and Iotia is in the Epsilon Indi (Andor) system near Starbase BETA. While is is unlikely that a full shipyard will be constructed this close to the Gorn and Romulan borders, it is anticipated that repair and refit capabilities of the facilities in the system will conintue to improve. In extreme emergencies, DS13 has access to the civilian space docks in Iotian orbit, built to service superfrieghters -- certainly large enough to handle even the largest Star Fleet ship. As part of its embarked craft compliment, DS13 carries the latest in Star Fleet combat shuttles- the F-39 SHIKRA and A-41 CARACARA models, which bring gravity-planing technology to the small craft, making them exponentially more maneuverable than anything Star Fleet Engineering had previously produced. DS13 is assigned an entire wing of fighters, totaling 96 in all, subdivided into 2 groups of 4 squadrons (12 shuttles) each. Each squadron is further divided into 3 flights of 4 shuttles apiece. Also embarked on DS13 is the new FLEMMING-class scout, first appearing as part of experimental USS FEARLESS' compliment. Powered by the latest micro fusion cores and the new gravtivy-planing sublight drives, the FLEMMING greatly increases DS13's ability to scout the surrounding areas quickly.
