A secure space station designed for deep space usage and easy docking, the XQ1 station is not named a platform for nothing. Consisting of 3 landing platforms that double as docking ports there is little else except for a cramped command tower and large cargo space that has a small docking bay for a few defensive fighters. It is however a very useful station to own. It has powerful scanners that allow it to detect incoming craft before they reach the station and so functions well as an early warning post. It can dock with cruisers to transfer personnel on board them before battle and can defend itself against anything smaller than an escort carrier. It has a strong shield and can hold up to 300 personnel used to relieve patrol ship crews and maintain border integrity.
