Deflector System : FS-3 Starbase deflector system*
*Note: FS-1 = Civilian Station
       FS-2 = Federation Research Station
       FS-3 = Deep Space Station
       FS-4 = Fleet Command Starbase
  Relative power output:  FS-1/FD-12 = 0.8; FS-2/FD-12 = 10;
                          FS-3/FD-12 = 25;  FS-4/FD-12 = 50
  Regeneration rates on station shields are also correspondingly larger.
  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.

      FLEMMING-Class Scouts    :   4


The Redoubt-class is the newest deep-space station class in Star Fleet, and the product of one of the longest construction projects in recent memory. Begun as the replacement for Deep Space 13 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.

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, the Redoubt-class'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.

Redoubt-class stations will act primarily as a headquarters facility close to enemy lines. 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.

Redoubt-class stations can also support a large number of free-floating space docks 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. These repair capabilities make it invaluable as a forward repair base.

As part of its embarked craft compliment, Redoubt-class stations carry the latest in Star Fleet combat shuttles- the F-39 Shikra and F-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. Redoubt-class stations are typically 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 Redoubt-class stations 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 subligh drives, the Flemming greatly increases a Redoubt 's ability to scout the surrounding areas quickly.
