The SGC handles all the day to day operations of the star-gate program from the Channa mountain complex.
not too long ago' Dew to the high secrecy of the star-gate program and the constant danger of the loss of the complex.
from an enemy attack the Alpha site was formed to act as a back up in the worst case scenario.
since it has bin operational it has proved it's worth time and time again.
so the decision was made to construct a second site that could and would function not just as a back up site for the SGC as Alpha did'.
but as a full base of operations that would not need any support from earth at all a true counter part to the SGC in all things .
so after much time and a lot of work SGC-Omega was formed obviously as steadied above.
SGC-Omega is not on earth" it is located off world on PX - 2185728-J in the (Namara) solar system in the M66 galaxy .
M66 is one of the three galaxies, that forum the ( Leo Triplett ) it is located at a distance of 35 million light years from earth.
SGC-Omega is a long way from home and in the opposite direction of the Alpha site' this was done as a safeguard.

AGE: between 8.5 & 9 billion years.
SURFACE: Surface Water is abundant covering 82% of the Surface of the planet.
ATMOSPHERE: Nitrogen, Oxygen, Trace elements.
LIFE - FORMS: Extensive Vegetation, abundant small animal life, no humanoid life.
The Maine SGC-Omega complex is constructed under ground with the facility. mirroring that of the SGC of earth in it's layout but is twice as big in size.
this is dew to the fact that SGC-Omega could be cut off from earth completely at any time.
for an underarmed period of time if the gate room suffered a failure" or the gate was not operational for any un for seen reason.
a secure one mile fenced off perimeter is surrounding the complex above ground.
with limited structures around the base at this time for general scientific study' of the planet .
an above ground barracks and commissary is capable of housing and severing 300 personnel at this time with no back up from the main complex below.
guard towers and Early warning systems line the perimeter as well .
one of the four air-strips for the contingent of F-302's housed in the north - east hanger is completed with the second well under way.
a small power station is located just opposite the two Vehicle hangers on the south end of the base.
at this time the Vehicle hangers in the south end are only housing a very few Vehicles.
as the SGC-Omega complex was designed to be a green base' that is to use environmental friendly power' and fuel sources'.
so at this time there are only six standard hummers on base' with the fuel for these
Vehicles being housed in a spacial pump house.
the pump house is located between the two Vehicle hangers' it is designed so that the Vehicles can drive in and fill-up with no danger of spillage on the bare ground
a series of redundant drains and filters.
would catch any spills and keep them contained till they could be disposed of properly.
at this time the below ground SGC-Omega complex is finished and up and running'
and can support up to 1240 personnel if need be.
the standard complement of on duty personnel for the below ground complex is 480 at any given time.
when the above ground base is competed it will be capable of housing 600 personnel at one time .
