The Remmler Array.

The Remmler Array was a Federation space station in orbit of the planet Arkaria. The station was controlled from the planetside Arkaria Base and was designed to conduct baryon sweeps on docked starships.

The Array consisted of two planar generators positioned parallel to one another. A starship would be parked with the generators to its port (left) and starboard (right), and the sweep was conducted between the generators. Typically, it progressed from the stern (back) to bow (front) of a starship. While the sweep was underway, all biological material, including the crew, was evacuated to the planet. The Array was large enough to accommodate a Galaxy Class starship, but the distance between the two generators could be adjusted to fit a smaller ship.

The sweep was deadly to organic material, but could also wreak havoc with certain ship systems. For that reason, Arkarian maintenance crews were usually dispatched to the ship to install field diverters in areas such as a ship's bridge, main engineering, and computer core.
