Outpost Houtman: A matter of flipping coins

The outpost is slowly growing, and Starfleet presence is getting noticed by different species in the sector. Without anyone's surprise, the Ferengi Alliance wants to claim a place on the outpost to help transit in this new diplomatic position. The motives favor the Ferengi more than the Federation, but a significant desire for a central location to commute is starting to grow.

Mission Description

A few weeks passed, on Sheo III and Outpost Houtman had a rocky start with the quakes it had to endure upon building at their starting point. The crew followed the command orders and relocated to a more desirable location. Upon the small mountain Tyr, a flat location with a large lake forming a waterfall at its edge, Outpost Houtman finds its new home.

The outpost strengthens by having an Operational Center, two Styles power generators, and a Keeler accommodation block for the personnel. Slowly the outpost is growing, and Starfleet’s presence is getting noticed by different species in the sector. For long Sheo III was never considered a valuable treasure, but now that Starfleet is there, the Ferengi wants a piece of it as well. They announced to have the interest in a “valued” meeting with the base, but there is definitely more than meets the eye.
