The Star Army Fleet Depot at Nataria System is a massive layered complex of underground and above-ground facilities built for the storage, processing and repair of equipment for the Star Army of Yamatai, and its accompanying orbital starship storage yard, where unused ships, both new and old, are stored and/or upgraded.
On the surface there are facilities for starships, aircraft and shuttle operations. Around this facility are a number of weapon emplacements, and the entire planet is protected by both a large shielding device.
The depot area contains 10 Mass Cloning Facilities.
The Depot was originally built in YE 22. When a starship was decommissioned, its contents generally ended up on Nataria's surface, while the ship itself was left in orbit on minimal or no power. In this way, Nataria had acquired billions of items that were kept around because they might later prove useful, such as space suits, pistols, rations, water containers, generators…the list went on and on. Some items were donated and/or sold to other friendly governments, or recycled. Nataria was one of the central hubs of Star Army Logistics; the other was Hoshi no Iori.
The Depot was heavily damaged in YE 31 by the NMX. After Nataria was recaptured in YE 33 in the Second Battle of Nataria, work began to repair and reopen the depot. By YE 34, many of the old warehouse facilities were restored and a Spire was built to serve as the command facility.
The depot currently contains the following assets:
These ships are available to the Yamataian public under the Star Army Privateer Program.
