Unity Starbase was the conceived idea of the Channan and Qua'tarian Empires. The idea was to create an era of peace between 2 bitter enemies. It was the first real political action of the newly appointed Emperor Ivan Rankoff, who had taken the throne after Lord Kazan forfeited the position after the bloodiest civil war the empire had ever had. Ivan wanted to usher in an era of peace and allow the galaxy to heal and lick its wounds after 2 very ugly conflicts separated only a handful of years apart. This version of Starbase Unity lasted approximately 3 years, until the Treatarians paid the remaining Lysians to bomb the facility, resulting in the Unity disaster (which was after the Assyrians joined in, adding their quarter to the bottom in the 2nd version of unity). The Quatarian quarter had the most powerful cloaking device in the galaxy, being able to perfectly cloak the whole facility while also being armed with Assult disruptor arrays, allowing for 360 degree firing arc that can 1-shot anything shrot of a battleship. The Channan quarter had the most powerful Gromholt, the Quantum-Grimholt, which could blow away most all starships/flagships within the sector.
