Located on planet Nataria in the Nataria star system, the Star Army Fleet Depot is a tremendous complex of underground and above-ground facilities and orbital yards. It was built for the storage, processing and repair of equipment for the Star Army of Yamatai. It is an incredibly important hub for Star Army Logistics, which has led to it being strategically targeted for capture or destruction by the enemy in multiple wars.
At Nataria, one can find anything a war machine needs, from vials of tiny nanomachines to hulking dreadnaught starships ready to be commissioned into a fleet. From the latest prototype equipment to the obscure relics of yesteryear. Nataria even has examples of captured enemy ships and equipment. It is staffed by the best logistics force in the sector.
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.
In YE 28, during the First Mishhuvurthyar War the depot was disabled by an attack that destroyed the Star Army Fleet Processing Center1). Following the attack, the planetary portion of the depot took on much more responsibilities.
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.
Kuvexians attacked Nataria in YE 42.4 in the Third Battle Of Nataria. Millions of invaders attacked the Fleet Depot but the Star Army was able to repel them with only moderate damage to the fleet depot.
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.
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 Type-32 Rail Train provides a swift and seamless journey between key locations. With dedicated tracks for each direction, the rail system offers a reliable and punctual service, ensuring that you arrive at your destination on time. The Nataria Fleet Depot has a train station offering Type 32 Rail Train service to the Nataria Cemetery, the Star Army Museum, and Fort Minori Reserve Center.
For easy transportation within the depot, a network of local shuttle vans are available for both military personnel and visitors. These shuttles run on a regular schedule and provide access to all major facilities within the complex, making it simple for you to navigate the vast depot.
Some of the facilities that the Nataria Fleet Depot includes are:
Nataria's population is exclusively members of the Star Army of Yamatai. There are mostly Nekovalkyrja and Minkan present with significantly more women than men.
The current first point of contact for the depot is Yi Hye-Seong, who is the secretary that handles materiel transfer requests.
Here's an automatic list of all characters currently in this place (based on structured data from their character pages).
Characters can see the vast stockpiles of Star Army equipment and can find almost anything the Star Army uses at this base if they're able to work with the logistics staff.
The Nataria Fleet Depot also includes an accompanying orbital starship storage yard, where unused ships, both new and old, are stored and/or upgraded.
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.
