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.

Deep Space Station K-7 (TOS-42)

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.

Miranda class (Legacy)
Miranda class (ST-02)
A Starfleet fixture of long-range scientific, supply, and exploratory missions for more than a century, Miranda class vessels probably logged more parsecs than any other single Federation vesel class. During the 23rd century, Starfleet Command placed an increasing emphasis on deep space exploration and surveying. The first ships launched after the inception of the exploratory vessel initiative, Miranda class vessels represent the most notable result of Starfleet’s renewed focus on exploration and discovery. First commissioned during the period known as “The Great Awakening,” the Miranda class cruiser was in the forefront of that expansion effort. At the time, Starfleet itself was expanding in response to the changing and expanding economic and political goals of the Federation. To meet the demand of a larger navy, the Military Appropriations Committee authorized the development and testing of hundreds of vessel types, the Miranda among them.
During this same period, the concepts of ship design were rapidly evolving and becoming more sophisticated, and the technology to build and operate starships was going through a revolution. Advances in all facets of the technology required to construct, maintain, and operate a starship were changing so rapidly that some ships were obsolete before they were completed. The Miranda design was changed no fewer than twelve times before the tooling and machining was begun. When these new cruisers were launched, they were only capable of performing three-year missions with resupply at one-year intervals. This made their dual-purpose role of research cruiser harder to perform. With the great distances that had to be travelled, they could not get more than six months travel time from a friendly outpost. This meant they could only advance as fast as the frontier was expanding. The class required some alterations during its trials and was to see many more changes after its commissioning, the last of which was a major refitting in the 2270s similar to that of the Constitution class. Merging a host of diverse capabilities, versatility quickly became a hallmark of the class. Although Miranda class ships would primarily undertake scientific and exploratory missions, certain systems modules were swappable. These Miranda variants enjoyed great popularity in the early 24th century, and their expanded tactical and defensive systems were more than a match for most foes. Ships of this class participated in every major battle of the 24th century, often serving on the secondary or reserve battle lines.
By the middle of the 24th century, Starfleet recommissioned many Miranda class vessels and sent them to surplus depots, scrapped them for parts, or used them as training vessels. Federation member planets and allied systems such as Altair and Betelgeuse first began to add reconditioned Miranda class ships to their own space fleets by the 2360s, after the active production life of these ships ceased. Hence, many Miranda class vessels continued to serve with distinction throughout Federation space and beyond for decades after their theoretical obsolescence.

Excelsior class (ST-06)
Excelsior class refit (ST-07)
In October 2284, the U.S.S. Excelsior NX-2000, the first of a new class, was commissioned. This vessel was the newest in Starfleet, and it incorporated many experimental operating systems. Originally designed as a test-bed for the experimental transwarp drive, the Excelsior was called “The Great Experiment” by many in influential circles. These ships were the newest of any in Starfleet and incorporated experimental technology in most of the components required to operate a starship. With so many new systems aboard these vessels, the process of testing them was slow. Prior to being installed, each component was tested and retested until it met standards. Nevertheless, when the Excelsior was taken out for trials, the evaluation teams were constantly faced with primary system malfunctions that would not allow any of the secondary or backup systems to be tested. This caused the evaluators to deal with these new components on a one-at-a-time basis, and thus creating time delays in the commissioning of the class.
The Excelsior class underwent a number of late design changes when the transwarp project ultimately failed. While transwarp was never realized, designers were unwilling to cast aside what was otherwise a sound cruiser design. The transwarp engines were removed in favor of conventional linear warp drive engines. The Excelsior class could cruise at Warp 8, sustain speeds of Warp 10 for several hours, and reach Warp 13 when necessary. This made it by far the fastest Starfleet vessel for almost five decades.

Constellation class (TNG-110)
Constellation class (TNG-147)
The Constellation class was a starship type with four warp nacelles, first commissioned in 2276. The warp nacelles and several components of the saucer section shared many design similarities with the Constitution and Miranda class designs of the era. Constellation-class ships were on the verge of being phased out in the mid-2360s, but some were still in service in in 2370. Several had already been decommissioned by 2365, including the U.S.S. Hathaway NCC-2593, which had been stripped of its offensive systems and rendered “warp inactive” by removing all antimatter from its warp reaction system.
