Located on Planet Nataria in the Nataria System, the Star Army Fleet Depot is a massive, layered complex of underground and above-ground facilities. It was built for the storage, processing and repair of equipment for the Star Army of Yamatai.
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 and a Personnel Synthesis Facility opened in March YE 37 has an output of 50,000 soldiers per day and typically produce roughly 1.5 million soldiers per month during wartime.
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 the First Battle Of Nataria in YE 31 by the NMX and its stores of millions of starships were self-destructed to prevent capture by the enemy. Aries Star Fortress self-destructed as well.
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 Star Army Spire, Type 32 was built to serve as the command facility.
Nataria Fleet Depot excels at rapidly creating and equipping large numbers of soldiers, and at long-term storage of used and disused war materiel (such as outdated models of Star Army equipment). It is extensively equipped to store and care for starships, starship components, and starship inventory supplies. Nataria is also where a large portion of Star Army's preserved foods are processed and stored.
The depot currently contains the following assets:
The Star Army keeps an enormous supply of food in stock. Most of this is preserved to last a long time. The Star Army has its own food processing facility on Nataria that is able to can fresh foods.
The Nataria Fleet Depot also includes an accompanying orbital starship storage yard, where unused ships, both new and old, are stored and/or upgraded.
