The Sim

The island of Hawkeye, part of the Randa Islands chain, on the planet Raeya III was donated to the United Federation of Planets in 2376. Measuring roughly 37 km long and 40 km wide with an area of just over 653 square kilometers, a base was built shortly after. The new planetary base gave the Federation the largest single presence of force in the Raeyan Sector and also gave the Raeyans themselves a sense of security, however, there has always been political resistance from some of the local political elite. The base was also home to the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force until late 2384 when a transfer of command made Hawkeye Island the head quarters of the Fourth Fleet's Task Force 58 in addition to its original marines. Several changes of status later, Hawkeye now stands as a simple planetary base responsible for keeping Raeya (a Federation protectorate world) and any Federation property still in the sector safe and secure.

Situated in the tropics on Raeya 3, Hawkeye shares many other geographical similarities with the other Randa Islands, such as a long beach along the western side of the island and many small, fairly shallow, rivers running throughout the landmasses. Jungle takes over in what undeveloped parts there are of Hawkeye, and some wildlife still roams the island. The base itself is home to over 50,000 officers and anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 civilians that work on the base at any given time. Since the departure of the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force, the number of regular Starfleet officers is now more than 50% of the total Starfleet population. It also boasts extensive defensive systems, with dozens of weapons platforms around the island and a custom shielding system which covers the entire island. Along with the capital ships, 25 classes of various runabouts, 40 shuttlecraft and the 106th Blue Wolves fighter wing are assigned to Hawkeye. With the departure of most Starfleet forces from the sector, four Type X Drydocks were built in orbit to handle any major repairs for Federation friendly starships. Two of the drydocks are named Catherine Davillia and Robin Johnson docking stations in honor of former Hawkeye officers. On the island itself, there is enough room for 8 Intrepid Class-sized ships to land and receive supplies. The base also has a complex power system, with a dozen matter/antimatter generators providing the primary power for the base.
