It is a classified space station that is hidden between Jupiter and its volcanic moon, Io. The magnetosphere disturbance of the two make the station virtually invisible to sensors of any kind, and the station draws its power from the volcanic activity of the moon, thus making its power usage also near impossible to detect. The purpose of this space station is as a home base for space fleets and fighter pilots, as well as reconnaissance & exploratory teams. It is also a popular place to hold sensitive diplomatic meetings of any kind, and it is the primary base for extraterrestrial military research.
I think I am going to call the station "CAMELOT" (I'm open to different names though, too), and I was originally thinking the station design should be a cube... like a Borg cube. My thought was that the more "sensitive" levels, like research, classified files, transporters, and backup power generators could all be in the center of the cube and would be better protected if an attack were to occur. But then there is so much of the station that is left horribly exposed at the same time. So then I thought about going with a pyramid design.... but that just seems like a whole lot of wasted space to me... and it is way too Goa'uld.
So, to sum it up: What I am looking for is a unique design for a city-sized space station and I want the design to be loaded with great tactical advantages. I am just rotten at coming up with design ideas for anything, so I need a little help brainstorming this.
What would be a cool shape(s) to use?
What would be an inconspicuous design?
Should it be a compact design, or should it be uncondensed?
Any thoughts and ideas regarding the station (not limited only to design) are welcome!
