Credit to Lord Trogg for this one.
The screen description for the NAU Atlas Base. &stNAUAtlasBase;. is a bit confusing if you have no Atlas rank.
<Text id="descClosed"> reads:
"You enter a small chamber with scattered debris. The station appears abandoned."
Generally stations in the game which are abandoned have been destroyed. This Atlas base however is active and has docked ships.
Possibly change the second sentence in the screen desc to something like:
"You see no one and all the doors are locked." or
"You can't find any people and none of the doors will open."
