|Yosai class Asteroid Base|
When the Order learned of the subversion taking place around the Heaven's Gate, they contacted the Blood Dragons to discuss an alliance to counter this threat to humanity. The Blood Dragons agreed to assist the Order, realising the threat to mankind and the danger to their own people if the Nomads would be successful in taking over the leaders of Kusari. With funding and supplies smuggled in by the Order, they constructed a small outpost in Tohoku, from which they could spy on Heaven's Gate. The base also played a brief role in the Nomad Wars, when it became a staging area for the Blood Dragons while they prepared for an infiltration of Heaven's Gate to retrieve an important artifact called the Proteus Tome.
Ryuku still keeps watch over the goings-on at Heaven's Gate. The Order still has agents aboard the station who coordinate actions between the Blood Dragons and Order forces in the Omicrons. The base also repairs and resupplies supply ships moving between Chugoku and the Research Outpost in Okinawa if they have come under attack.
