Arkaria Base

Arkaria Base was a facility located on the planet Arkaria and controlled the orbiting Remmler Array, used for baryon sweeps. The base was run by Starfleet Commander Calvin Hutchinson until 2369, when he was murdered.

The plains surrounding the base made for excellent horseback riding and Jean-Luc Picard took advantage of this as an opportunity to excuse himself from an invitation to a reception hosted by Commander Hutchinson. (TNG: "Starship Mine")

Arkaria Base was a reuse of the matte painting first seen as the Darwin Genetic Research Station in "Unnatural Selection".
As it has not been clarified on screen whether Arkaria is a Federation member world, it remains unknown if Arkaria Base is a full Federation facility or only administered by Starfleet. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd edition, p. 22) identified this as a Federation facility.
