Supply Station Omega is a facility operated by House Ajunta Pall of Clan Plagueis as its primary base of operations. Formerly a Separatist outpost that maintained the infrastructure of the complex now known as The Pinnacle, it was only discovered after further surveys of Aliso were conducted by the Ascendant Clan.
Supply Station Omega is a large facility created by the Confederacy of Independent Systems sometime during the Clone Wars. Initially, the base was the first Separatist presence on the planet of Aliso. However, plans were put in motion to construct a massive prison facility that could be kept out of the eyes of the Galactic Republic. Instead, the facility was to be repurposed as a supply base for CIS operations on the planet of Aliso.
Following the completion of The Pinnacle, the facility remained. Its strategic location and size were invaluable for maintaining a well rounded logistical operation on the planet in support of the work being done at the prison. As well, various systems that were previously housed in the grounded starship were cannibalized, instead being outfitted for use in the ultra high security prison complex.
Sometime around or following the end of the Clone Wars, the facility was evacuated and abandoned. The majority of its systems were shut down, its memory banks wiped, and any valuable technology that hadn’t been repurposed for use in the prison facility had been removed or destroyed. When the members of House Ajunta Pall discovered it in 34 ABY, it was a shell of a facility, though still functional as a base of operations.
The facility was a grounded Separatist Supply Ship. The ship itself measures over nine hundred hundred metres long, one thousand two hundred metres wide, and over nine hundred metres high. The ship was composed of two semi-circular structures that each flanked a rectangular, central complex. Since the ship was grounded, it was embedded in the ground. Thus only the upper two thirds of the former starship was seen on the surface, leading to its semi-circular, cut-off architecture. The facility made use of a makeshift, Separatist-inspired docking design that secured the grounded vessel in a cradle-like encapsulation. The rest of the complex was located below ground, which accounted for the functional, underground supply hangars. The facility was oriented southwest toward its sister facility, a Separatist prison which is now known as The Pinnacle.
Entry to the base could be granted through either of the semi-circular structures. Each hemisphere had two large, identical hangars which were parallel to each other on the flat surface of the ship. These hangars had the capability to store troops, small spacecraft, and priority supplies. Additional levels were located above and below the primary hangars, connected by a standard starship lift system and standard maintenance tunnels. Originally used for the storage of cargo and droids, House Ajunta Pall has modified the spaces above the main hangars into training areas and armouries, while the areas below ground are barracks and traditional cargo storage.The main hangars retain their original function as a platform for landing craft and priority cargo storage.
The central complex comprised the primary command centre, secondary command centre, Equite’s and guest quarters, secluded meal halls, private training rooms, and conference rooms. It was the primary control centre for surface operations and the hub of the complex’s control functions. All primary functions could be accessed from the command centre. These functions included hangar controls, air traffic control, retrofitted advanced communications equipment, scanners, and internal security functions such as cameras, computers, and blast door controls, and weapons emplacement control. The central complex of the facility was a semi-rectangular protrusion that connected the two hemispheres. Sitting atop this was a small tower which some referred to as the command centre, while others referred to it as the bridge. Made up of two semi-circular hemispheres and a central command post, it mirrored the design of the vessel primary. Control stations could be found throughout the command centre, and at its centre was a durasteel chair reserved for the duty officer or commander.
The central complex was also originally protected by advanced shielding. However, as a precaution it was also outfitted with heavy armour in case the shielding went offline or was depleted. Since the facility had been abandoned, the shielding had been stripped and outfitted on The Pinnacle. The heavy armour remains in place surrounding the command centre, though it is important to note the primary command centre itself is not outfitted with armour. The central facility is reserved for high ranking officers of the Plagueian military, Equites, and the House and Clan leadership.
The facility is located in a large valley that those in Ajunta Pall refer to as the Valley of Typhojem, a name once bestowed to the namesake of the House itself. The valley is nearly sixty kilometres long and approximately thirty kilometres wide. The valley, however, projects northward, with the facility being located at its southern tip. Little data has been gathered on the origins of the valley, though environmental and geological patterns suggest that its formation was natural. Flora within the formation is relatively scarce, though reconnaissance missions following its discovery had reported small patches of simple, green flora and various types of growth along its outer edge.
The location of the facility in this valley was also strategic. Located within ideal shuttle range of the Pinnacle, it is close enough to pass supplies quickly and efficiently, support landed CIS starships within a relatively close distance, or reinforce the prison in case of internal or external threat.
