The Command Station is the Frontiersmen command structure, which can only be built on a Technology Point; the Command Station allows a Marine to take the role of Marine Commander using the login screen. Infantry Portals can only be built around Command Stations. If the only existing Command Station is destroyed by Kharaa, the match will be lost for the Frontiersmen.


Triggered Abilities

Log In

Use the Log In screen on the Command Station

Log In enables any Marine to log into an unoccupied Command Station to become Marine Commander. The Marine Commander is protected from outside damage while inside the Command Station, where he can safely direct his troops. He can log out from the Command Station at any time to aid in battle.

Recycling a structure

Recycle enables the Marine Commander to return a portion of Team Resources by recycling a structure. The recycling process lasts a short duration, after which a maximum of 75% Team Resources used to create the structure is refunded. However, the amount of Team Resources refunded depends on the remaining health of the structure on recycle completion. The higher the structure's health, the more resources are refunded.
