The primary role of the USS Patton is that of a guard ship to Starbase-10.  She is to defend the station and assist in whatever auxiliary role may be required by the stationís staff.  The Patton also engages in routine patrols of the Neutral Zone and the system in which Starbase-10 is located, as well as escorting valuable cargo shipments. 

               Due to the fact that she is attached to Starbase-10, with easy access to additional personnel, the Patton rarely has a full crew complement.  The usual staffing levels are approximately five officers and fifteen non-commissioned officers and enlisted personnel.  Though during emergencies, the Patton must report to Starbase-10 to take on additional personnel, including members of the senior staff.
