Situated on Tahnna'Whanna IV, on the very edge of Federation territory, Outpost Phoenix serves many roles that aid Federation and Starfleet interests such as communications relay, diplomatic mission, exploration support, science & research centre, and trade hub. It is currently under the command of Captain Kaveh Arzie.
As of Stardate 201609.30, the Outpost is still very sparse. The only completed structures are the Operations Building (of which 95% of the internal structure is still unoccupied and unfinished), Personnel Barracks, and the Fusion Powerplant.
Currently there are 94 Starfleet crewmembers attached to Outpost Phoenix, not including the Starfleet Corps of Engineers currently assigned to the construction effort.
