Space Station Camera was a scientific research space station in the Third Zone. The scientists Kartz and Reimer conducted time travel experiments on it. Dastari was the station's Head of Projects, and Shockeye of the Quawncing Grig was the chef. Sontarans attacked the station as part of Dastari's plan to kidnap the Second Doctor, who had been sent by the Time Lords to investigate the experiments. Almost everyone on the station was killed by the Sontarans.
When researching the Second Doctor's brief tenure as a CIA agent, a Time Lord author suspected that the space station's security systems catching him on tape had exposed the CIA, forcing them to carry out the official sentence and have the Doctor regenerate. (PROSE: A Brief History of Time Lords)
