Watchtower-class starbase (TOS-53)
The Federation asserted its sovereignty in space space through a series of starbases, which could be located on a planet’s surface or on a space station, or a combination of both. This network of starbases provided a wide range of services; starbases could act as supply posts, recreation facilities, scientific outposts, trade hubs, and administrative centers. While all starbases provided each of these services, many were noted for their superiority in one or two specific areas.

Starfleet Academy (TNG-219)
Starfleet Academy Seal (TNG-219)
An institute of higher learning and training facility for Starfleet officer candidates, Starfleet Academy was founded in 2161 with the motto, “Ex astris, scientia,” a Latin phrase that translates as “From the stars, knowledge.” Modeled after military academies from throughout Earth‘s history, the Academy, located at the Presidio in San Francisco, classified its cadets — or midshipmen, in naval parlance — with rankings based on class seniority. Although admission to the Academy was open to non-Federation citizens, they required a letter of recommendation from a senior Starfleet officer, such as when Nog, a Ferengi, wished to apply in 2371.
In 2368, when Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D was asked to deliver the commencement address for the year’s graduating class, the occasion was marred by the loss of Cadet Joshua Albert in a training accident shortly before commencement was to occur.
Starfleet Academy cadets in the 24th century were typically organized into squads of approximately a half-dozen cadets. Although each squad was officially equal, the cadets in Red Squad were generally held to be the Academy’s elite students. Members of Red Squad received their own dormitory, as well as other privileges, in addition to special training. Because of this elite status, many cadets, including Nog and his fellow Omega Squad cadet Matt Decker, aspired to become part of Red Squad.
In 2372, however, Red Squad became an unwitting tool in Admiral Leyton‘s attempted coup of Earth’s government. Under orders from Leyton, Red Squad, commanded at the time by Cadet Riley Shepard, sabotaged Earth’s global power grid, which Leyton then blamed upon a Dominion attack.

Bar on K-7 (TOS-42)
One of nine space stations strung along the Klingon frontier between 2218 and 2293, Deep Space Station K-7 began as a strategic outpost. Located one parsec from the nearest Klingon outpost, and near the disputed colony world of Sherman’s Planet, K-7 was tasked to help ensure the development of the world would favor the Federation under the terms of the Organian Peace Treaty. Most of K-7 consisted of storage areas and industrial fabrication facilities, and relatively little of the station was actually inhabitable. By the terms of the Organian treaty, all frontier stations of both nations were open to each others’ traffic, which made K-7 a hub for spies and confrontation. The Federation’s development project for Sherman’s Planet was threatened in 2266, when some 1,771,561 tribbles infested the storage bins of Quadrotriticale intended for the project, though this infestation ultimately helped uncover a Klingon sabotage attempt, as well as an undercover Klingon agent, disguised as a Human bureaucrat named Arne Darvin. Unknown to anyone at the time, Darvin’s future self had traveled back in time from 2373 in an attempt to alter events and prevent his dishonor, but Starfleet personnel from his time prevented him from altering the timeline. With the Khitomer Accords and the growing Federation-Klingon alliance, K-7 became a major transit point and meeting place for Federation and Klingon ships and personnel.
In 2409, K-7 remained in active service, although heavily upgraded over the decades, and found itself on the front lines of a renewed conflict between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Commanded by Commander Naomi Wildman, K-7 was a focal point for Starfleet ships entering sectors under active dispute between the two powers.

Located near the Cardassian border on the edge of the Badlands, this survey station was relatively well-armed, having suddenly been uprated during the Dominion War, though much of the base’s armament was automated and its military staff withdrawn after 2375, and Starfleet considered turning it into a supply station for expeditions into Cardassian space or even a scientific command post for voyages through the Bajoran wormhole. The science vessel S.S. Vico was assigned to Starbase 514 at the time of its destruction in 2368.
Starbase 234 (TNG-208)
A crucial strategic base along the Klingon frontier, located near the Triangle, Starbase 234 dated back to the Klingon-Romulan crisis of the 2340s. During the Klingon Civil War of 2367, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D led a task force, formed by taking every ship in Starbase 234’s spacedock and every ship within a day’s travel from the starbase, to blockade Romulan forces that were secretly supplying the House of Duras. Not long after the war had concluded, the Enterprise crew met with Admiral Brackett at Starbase 234 before proceeding with an investigation into the disappearance of Ambassador Spock. Starbase 234 received a massive upgrade following the Klingon Civil War, and became a crucial liason and command post during the Dominion War; its spacedock could support an entire fleet for months.

A small, but powerfully-armed starbase in the Dorvan Sector intended to provide support and supply facilities for Deep Space 9. The station could dock up to six Nebula class cruisers. The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D escorted the U.S.S. Phoenix NCC-65420 to Starbase 211 in 2367, following Captain Benjamin Maxwell‘s unauthorized attacks in Cardassian space.
