This station was used for testing a radically new and highly innovative mining technology known as a particle fountain, the brainchild of Tyran Doctor Farallon, who began work on the project in 2363. (TNG: "The Quality of Life")
The particle fountain was generated by the station core, which was fed by multiple power grids, building particle flux within a confinement field which contains the particle stream.
One of the key components of the station was its main particle impeller, as well as its numerous field generators. Problems with the phase selectors were the primary cause for the station not to be able to reach its full capacity.
Station core chamber
The station's power grids were down the various conduits that attached to the core chamber. One of which was located behind four bulkheads, 200 meters from the station core chamber, down conduit A2. The station also had its plasma conduits located in one of the station's access tunnels attached to the core chamber.
The room was also equipped with field emitters.
