History and background[edit]

The Hourara system houses the small naval construction-repair base and resupply depot within the orbital starport, Ulaani. The base only constructs the lower end of naval requirements, generally vessels under a thousand tons. These include the common patrol cruisers, close escorts, naval couriers and non-jump ships such as ship's boats, SDB's etc.

The base does serve larger, capital ships in need of significant repairs and/or overhauls. The naval administration has contracts to serve and supply the local planetary, subsector and reserve forces. There is a close link with the naval research station on Gladsheim (Dagudashaag 0614).
