In 2009 the base was a major UNIT hub. Experiments like Project Indigo were carried out there. At the time the base was overseen by Lieutenant-General Sanchez.
Following Earth's removal from normal space, it was a prime target for the Daleks during the War in the Medusa Cascade. Many of the base's personnel were exterminated in this attack, including Sanchez himself. (TV: The Stolen Earth)
Technology and facilities
The facility had a war room and an international co-ordination centre housed in the war room. It also had ample scientific facilities to house Project Indigo and other scientific facilities and support staff for projects such as the Osterhagen Project. (TV: The Stolen Earth)
Behind the scenes
A press statement embargoed until 31 March 2005, predating UNIT New York City Base's appearance in The Stolen Earth, mentions UNIT having its New York City presence expanded by Major A Highway's "lead up" of UNIT's New York Liaison Office. Major A Highway also pays tribute to his predessor and "old friend", Major C Jones, when she and her colleagues were lost during the Jersey Tollgate Situation.
