Star Base Bravo
Star Base Bravo is a Federation Immense class starbase located in the Kaleb Sector near the Federation/Romulan Neutral Zone. After Star Base 39-Sierra was destroyed during the outbreak of the First Romulan War, Star Fleet realized the need to construct a new base near the border in case hostilities broke out in that region again. Nearby planets include Calder II, Kaleb, Draken IV, and Iota Horologii b.
SBB is the home base for the 2nd Fleet and therefore a vitally important military facility. Unlike Star Base Alpha which orbits Earth, Star Base Bravo is a remote facility and does not see a great deal of civilian passenger traffic. As it is the main Federation facility in the region, though, it is a major stopover point for freighter traffic.

Habitat & Recreation
The Habitat decks of Star Base Bravo circle the top and bottom of the third ring, located under the Bridges to the Support Domes. There is an upper and lower Habitat Ring, with the Promenade and Commercial sections (Recreation) in between. Together the Habitat and Recreation span 249 decks. This isn't to say that the Habitat and Recreation sections span the entire span of those decks, simply that portions of these decks are dedicated to this purpose.
The Upper Habitat Levels span Decks 720-792 while the Lower Habitat Levels span Decks 918-969, for a total of 123 decks. Neither section is zoned for any specific class of resident, however approximately 35% of all habitat areas can be reconfigured to accommodate residents requiring different atmospheric or gravitational needs and 4% of all habitat areas can be reconfigured for non-humanoid residents.
There are 5 different types of available housing units:
Temporary Quarters: For personnel or civilians who will be on the base for less than 60 days and visiting crew enjoying shore leave. These are small rooms with a lounge and dining area in one room, a small bedroom, a full washroom, and a replicator. They often have windows and open to a corridor due to the nature of placing these wherever there was space.
Apartment Style: For personnel or civilians who reside on the base. This type of housing provides mixed living where personnel and civilians intermingle. Made up of blocks of 40-60 moderately sized apartments, these units share a common lobby and entrance. Replicators are standard and these units contain one to two bedrooms, a dining and family area, and one full washroom with sonic shower. This type of living is for families of two, or with children young enough to not yet need their own rooms.
Group Style: For residents who wish to live in their own apartments, while living close to friends or relatives. Three to six apartments share an entrance and a small lounge-type lobby. The lounge area contains simulated windows which can be customized for the regular viewing of outdoor scenes. All of the suites have windows (which can be easily changed from opaque to translucent to transparent) which view the lounge. The apartments are identical to the ones in the Apartment Style. This style is limited in quantity.
Family Style: For residents with larger families and children, this style of house sustains more than 50% of the habitats on the base. Fifteen units share an entrance lobby that is actually a large atrium. As opposed to a lounge area, this large park offers areas to gather, play or meet. As opposed to the private dining and living room areas found in Apartment and Suite styles, the atrium also has sections set aside for these purposes to be shared between all residents. Each individual unit still maintains one personal replicator for everyday needs or snacks. Each house in these communities maintains its own private space, with individual entrances to private residences.
Single Style: For V.I.P.s who require privacy, these residences take up less than 5% of the bases available housing. Entrance is directly off a corridor, as opposed to all the other housing types which are accessed via lobbies. These types can be quite small one bedrooms or large four or five bedroom houses. None of these houses share any facilities with other residences. Waiting lists for this type of residence are long, and are limited to those who can prove a need such as the Admirality.
The commercial and recreation sections of the base span decks 793-917, 124 decks in total. Housing everything from the numerous large and small parks and pools to the holo-cinema, this section is meant for rest and relaxation. Some areas are reserved for Star Fleet crew and their guests, most areas are open to the general public.
