Water, power, and food also have to be provided continually to keep the base running properly... things will fall apart ''very'' fast when any of the three are in short-supply.

Worker- Operate general equipment and work in the mines.

Biologist- Performs maintenance on plants and other food-producing tools in the base.

Medic- Treats other colonies for illnesses, injuries, and other maladies. Also creates more healing-kits from materials.

Guards- Monitors the base and kills intruders looking to sabotage your base.

Your base can also build (or purchase) bots who perform specific duties, taking some of the workload off your colonists so they can focus on jobs only a human can do.

Carrier Bot- Lifts and transports materials to where they are needed. Moves faster than having a colonist transport it.

Constructor Bot- Constructs and maintains structures for Engineers. Faster at building.

Driller Bot- Works in the mines. Extracts ore faster and does not risk injury like workers will.

* SolarFlareDisaster: A regular event on planets with little or no atmosphere. Best keep your colonists in-doors during one unless you want to give them a radiation bath. It doesn't set the planet towards disaster unlike most examples of this trope, but it certainly can be a disaster for the survival of your base.
* WindTurbinePower: Your secondary source of power, next to solar.
