The Pegasus was commissioned in 2638 by the Confederation Senate Security Committee to act as the primary strategic installation in Vega Sector. It was completed in 2646 by the Naval Corps of Engineers hollowing out of the nickel-iron asteroid D-344R. It was established the following year and dedicated as Vega fleet headquarters 2648.037.
By 2654 it was commanded by Admiral Bill Wilson and was manned by 10000 people. However the Kilrathi attacked the base one third time with 40 capital ships, bombarded the asteroid and boarding parties breached the base. Wilson realised that they were after the Navcom AI and attempted to destroy it. TCS Vanguard, TCS Iowa and TCS Kobi were among the ships docked there that day. The base was utterly destroyed, not before Wilson managed to send a warning.
Pegasus was a multi-level structure with a total pressurized area of over 7 million cubic meters and a maximum capacity of 25000. As Vega fleet headquarters, it offers many facilities such as full drydock, a 1000-bed hospital, extensive supply and ammunition depot facilities. It also serves as the primary military communications hub of Vega sector.
Because of its strategic location near the front and its strategic importance, Pegasus is a high security closed facility. It is the primary Confed installation for testing new assets under battle conditions. It is from Pegasus that experimental weapons, ships and defensive technologies are regularly deployed for their first forays against the enemy.
It has a spacedock Capacity of 12 large berths (carrier/tanker) and 40 more regular berths and 4 fighter decks.
Established on an asteroid, Pegasus defense system take advantage of the environment and micro-gravity conditions. It is protected by more than 200 hardpoint turrets, each incorporating an antimatter gun and point-defense missile placement; more than 300 standard missile ports around the base. The natural rock provides armor to a depth of 25 to 75 meters over most of the base.
Being a Yellow status installation, Pegasus was off-limits to all nonessential civilian personnel, including families of dependents. Therefore by command directive all personnel (except senior commanders) are limited to no more than two standard years continuous service on Pegasus. Naval personnel are rotated between two years on Pegasus and two years at either Icarus Base in Pephedro system, or Titan Base, Sol system. Other services are rotated as directed by their respective commands.
