The UNN Ramsey Recruitment Center and Training Facility is one of the five principal recruitment installations on Earth. It serves three military branches: the Marines, the Navy, and the OSA. It is the most recently built facility and is said to feature holographic artificial personalities and cutting-edge training simulations.

Once you’ve gone inside, the training simulations are a must-visit experience: they're some of the highest-quality cyber-simulations available, including not only sight and sound, but tactile feedback as well. Rumor has it that a Protocol Droid is principally on duty to keep the local teenagers from using the Cyberlink Booths as free entertainment.

The simulations grant boosted Statistics (Psionic Ability 5), Technical Skills (Hacking 3, Repair 3, Maintenance 5), Combat Skills (Standard Weapons 1, Energy Weapons 2) and Psionic Abilities (Tier One, along with Kinetic Redirection and Projected Cryokinesis Psi Powers).

After your training runs in the simulators, you’ll be offered a choice of the three military branches. The Marines and Navy both have long and proud histories, dating back to the days of pre-corporate national militaries. The OSA is a newer branch, grounded in the newly established Psionic Disciplines, and already it’s acquired a rather dark reputation as a group of “spooks.”

Once you’ve made your choice, there’s no turning back — you’re about to be sent to space! Following a year-long preliminary training, a shuttle will drop you off at an Orbital Space Station for your first choice of mission postings.


  • Outside of the Recruitment Center is a small Happy Noodle restaurant. It would later make a cameo appearance in Bioshock as an advertisment of Chinese restaurant supposedly located somewhere in Rapture.
