Absolutely. The best example I can give you today is Kandahar airfield, Afghanistan. A sprawling complex of thousands of mutinationals, although there are no families, there are still thousands of civilians who work and live there. There are restaurants and shops galore. Basically, a Deep Space 9 on the ground. The airfield is not only under threat. but is constantly fired upon. Teams of people go forth from 'the station' to carry out missions. Deep Space 9 is a great parallel to this. Not necessarily safe, as per the thread title, but very real.
At least DS9 didn't have an infamous poo pond though!
Good God, you got that right!! I wouldn't go near the Asian kitchen because of its proximity to it!! You should be coming home soon, eh? (Yes, I do say 'eh' a lot)
Yeah the poo pond is horrible! We have a bit of that stink here on Phoenix every now and then, but nothing like KAF.

I have a little over 2 months to go, should be starting to head home in mid January.
