Tactical Command Station

Tactical Command Stations are the bases of operation for high-level command officers, hidden throughout Foundation-controlled space. Their exact locations are a closely-guarded secret. In the event of an attack on Central Command and Control or a loss of contact with the Blind Consul, the tactical stations have jurisdiction.

A Tactical Command Station is typically the home-base of a Field Commander, though such officials typically move between several bases for security. While the term "station" is used, this applies to the fact that a high-ranking commander is stationed there; with comparatively few being actual space stations. The Foundation prefers to place the tactical stations on planets within large garrisons, as they are much more administrative than combative.
