Responsible for patrolling the oceans of the world and providing a defense against threats from the sea, the World Aquanaut Security Patrol operates from Marineville, a purpose-built base on America's western seaboard. Specially developed to provide the World Aquanaut Security Patrol with the fastest and most comprehensively equipped patrol ship imaginable, Stingray is based in Marineville's Pen 3, accessible at a moment's notice via injector tubes linked to its crew's stand-by lounge.
