The base is situated on one edge of the giant red "blood stain". In Evangelion 1.0, the base has a highly unfinished appearance, and is referred to as a "Provisional Excavation Base" although precisely what was being excavated has not been revealed.
Tabgha Base was responsible for the construction of Evangelion Mark.06. Kaworu Nagisa was also stationed here until his deployment at the end of Evangelion 2.0. Mark.06's Spear is shown in wrappings in the process of relocation when Gendo and Fuyutsuki visit the base.
At the end of Evangelion 1.0, Kaworu emerges from one of nine visible coffin-like objects placed in front of Mark.06, with four to one side of him having already been opened, and the other four still closed. Nothing is yet known about them.
- Real-life Tabgha (from Heptapagon, "seven springs") is a valley near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel (Tabgha Base is the seventh branch of NERV). It is considered to be where Jesus Christ reassembled the disciples, and where Peter was reinstated after denying Jesus three times.
- The pit in which Mark.06 is being excavated and/or constructed and the spacecraft used by Gendo and Fuyutski to spy on the proceedings bear visual similarities to a set and a prop from Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film which has received references from Evangelion multiple times before.
