ENGAGEMENT AT STAR BASE 22
STARDATE: 3203.2, FEDERATION STARBASE 22, 1641 HRS FST

     
MIND THE WATCHER
On Stardate 3203.2, the Klingons launched a major assault against Starbase 22 in an attempt to disrupt the command and control operations of the entire region. It had been determined by Klingon planners that by taking Starbase 22 off line, either having it badly damaged or destroyed, would allow for a number of other Klingon units flood through the region with minor resistance. The base was both a vital resource center for the Federation and a minor irritation in the pride of the Empire.
