Cultural observation post
Jump to navigation Jump to search
A cultural observation post is an outpost camouflaged, usually by hologram, and employed by anthropological teams for the purpose of observing species who have not yet discovered the ability to create faster-than-light technologies.
Such societies are designated as pre-warp civilizations and are governed by the Prime Directive. Observation posts allow for covert observation, so as not to disturb the way of the species' life or interfere in the natural evolution of their society.
