|Lefevre class Station|
|Gallic Royal Navy|
Located Deep in the Somme asteroid feild, Fort Etaples was built in 552 AGS as a base of operations for the Gallic Royal Police and Navy in Picardy. The station is responsible for the security of the nearby Calais Research Facility, and routinely scans all traffic to and from the base.
Fort Etaples is notorious for its aging systems, many of which haven't been upgraded since the station was put into service. Breakdowns are frequent, and there are rumors that some Navy pilots are sleeping in their ships, mistrustful of the station's lifesupport system. The station was scheduled to receive an overhaul in 715 A.G.S., but the Marne Rebellion diverted the resources needed for it away.
