Space Station Sierra 18, previously known as Intelligence Installation 18, originally began as a small observation platform concealed on the surface of two engineering-joined asteroids near the Klingon Border about 5 light years away from the Azure nebula. It was built during a time of heightened tension between the Klingon Empire and the Federation some 90 years ago. During that time span, as tensions began to grow so did Intelligence Installation 18 until it grew to the size and usefulness to attain outpost status and was renamed to Outpost 18.

Shortly after the destruction of the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-C at Narendra III, communications and relations with the Klingon Empire strengthened, and with Station K7 and Starbase 157 present in the sector along with the construction of a newer starbase, Starbase 124, it was determined that leaving outpost 18 would create too strong of a presence in the sector which was no longer required near the boarder. During this downsizing, which removed several other outposts in the sector as well, Outpost 18 was decommissioned, all material was removed, and the frame of the outpost was left to drift in space.

Outpost 18 was merely a forgotten fact until a time near the Dominion war when it suddenly found use again as an intelligence installation, and was designated once again as an intelligence installation named Sierra 18.

Sierra’s usefulness only began to grow from then on. With the First Federation/Romulan War, and First General War, Sierra 18 proved to be valuable staging ground for several assaults into Romulan territory. During these wars Sierra was proven to once again be a valuable asset to Starfleet, and was deemed worthy of expansion and permanent operational status. The station was then designated Space Station Sierra 18.

During the Second Federation/Romulan War Sierra 18 fell under attack, and was nearly destroyed. This was a crippling blow for that portion of the sector, but because of economical and logistical issues, priority wasn’t given to repairs.

Soon after, the Borg invaded Federation Space, and the Armageddon Directive was initiated. In response, Sierra 18 was quickly evacuated. Contact with the station had been lost since then, and along with many other station, presumed destroy by the Borg until recent reports suggested otherwise. With so many assets destroyed by the Romulan War or Borg invasion, Sierra was deemed once again a prudent investment, and a Star Fleet ship, the USS Yeager, SC-8018 , was sent to investigate its existence. Upon confirming its existence and rescuing the station from a group of pirates, Space Station Sierra 18 was repaired and refitted, and it is once again helping protect the boarders of the Federation.

In the more recent Romulan war, the strategically located Sierra was occupied once more by the Romulans. A joint Federation/Mirak task force executed a successful attempt to liberate the station and claimed it back for the Federation. Soon after, Space Station Sierra Eighteen became the HQ for the Battle Group Gamma-3 and assigned the Cicero Class Starship, the USS Jefferson as well as a full squadron of fighters to shore up its defensive capabilities.

On Stardate 241112.13, Space Station Sierra Eighteen was attacked by an Alien force of unknown origin. A fierce battle took place that involved a defending force made of Starfleet ships lead by the USS Jefferson manned by Sierra's senior staff, and a Klingon Fleet under the command of General Gorram. Alas, the attackers were successful and the station was destroyed. However, the crew had anticipated the attack and had already evacuated all the civilian population. Thus limiting the casualties to 816 starfleet crewman and preventing what could have been a larger scale massacre.
