Unfortunately, modern science often requires expensive laboratories, so it usually requires significant funding to create science "colonies". The ones that come to mind for me are DARPA, Bell Labs, Skunk Works, CERN, JPL, LLNL, and Los Alamos. In older days various science societies probably served a similar purpose.

Do you REALLY think the Navy is going to let a powerplant engineer aboard a sub play around with scientific investigations on the vessel? I think you've got a strange idea of what life in the Navy is like.
