Another Profitable VentureEdit
- A stock light transport purchased by Mr. Big for Daimon Yurrel. The orginial plan was for Yurrel to quietly work his way back to a vessel the size of his previous ship, Profitable Venture. The plans took an unexpected turn when Yurrel rescued Captain Tyrellian and Lieutenant Exler from the holding cells aboard the Glaminfo. Mr Big discovered the presence of Sayzar Tyrellian aboard, and remote acivated the ship's destruct sequence. Despite his efforts, the only person to perish aboard the ship was Yurrel, after being slain by Jenneth. Sayzar, Renova Exler, as well as Jenneth escaped using the lifeboats. Another Profitable Venture was completely destroyed
- A Dopterian Zed-class stock light freighter owned by Mulgar aka Genaro Boak. Mulgar kept the ship in excellent condition
- The Boltan was a Free Trade Vessel docked at Yossarian's warehouse at the Enclave with an impatient captain.
A large, Capital class First Federation transport vessel, the Bootlegger's Paradise picked up Vurk and Tirgil in their shuttle Profit Margin, and carried them to Planet Voxhall in First Federation space. Equipped with a dampener that blocked most sensor scans from FF vessels. Captain: Darst
Denebian Roustabout - Series KEdit
- Captain Taldeen from the Starfleet Judge Advocate General's office used this type of transport vessel to get to Deep Space 3.
-Officially a Free Trade Vessel, the Fontaine's Freedom was a pirate vessel that traded with The Enclave on a regular basis. Though not as infamous as the Solar Winds, the Captain was high on the target list of many a merchant vessel in the sector. Master: Zangar Rethrobeck. Operations Officer: Kemnet. Flight Controller: Akson. Communications Officer: Goramund
A highly advanced frigate-sized starship. At least six of this class of ship were built at an unspecified location by civilian Mel Hermanson, a survivor of the Kalimor occupation. Hermanson sold his security firm, Black Sun, and liquidated all of his assets to build these ships. Their sole mission being seeking out and exacting revenge upon the Mahr. The fleet suffered casualties in the Miragosa Nebula, but the Mahr ships were subdued. After downloading data from the ships computers the Essex along with the rest of the fleet headed out, their destination unknown, though it is assumed the Mahr Homeworld. Commanding Officer: Mel Hermanson. First Officer: Wh'ler Fourth Mate: Yarrow
- The Glaminfo was an enormous "pleasure craft" with an exterior covered by holographic advertising. Equipped with a casino and multiple holosuites, the Glaminfo was capable of fulfilling nearly any fantasy of its visitors. The Glaminfo was equipped to jam transport and communications activity to prevent cheating in the ship's casino; unfortunately, this also prevented transporters from working as well. The preferred method of arrival and departure to and from the ship was via small transport yachts and shuttlecraft. The master of the vessel had connections to the area's criminal element, including the infamous Mr. Big and allowed his vessel to play a critical role in an illegal operation seeking to produce counterfeit latinum. Carrying an extensive weapons loadout that could defend the ship from just about any outside assailant, the Glaminfo also had a darker side. Below decks were multiple holding cells for trafficking in the slave trade. Captain: Vekas
- The Frizay was a Free Trade Vessel docked at Yossarian's Warehouse at the Enclave. When Goshen arrived at Yossarian's warehouse, the Frizay was 14 hours behind schedule because they were waiting for their cargo to be loaded.
The Horizon Star was a personal yacht under the command of a humanoid named Maraine. Though the yacht itself was luxurious, the owner seemed to be lacking any discretionary spending for peripherals, such as docking fees. Owner/Master: Maraine
One of the advanced starships in Mel Hermanson's task force. the Hesperus had lost weapons and primary shields during the suicide runs of the unmanned Mahr ships. There was no further mention of the ship's final fate.
IKS Chancellor MowgaEdit
- (pronounced Mow-Ha) A Klingon D7-class battlecruiser. As of 2364, most of the D7-class ships had been decommissioned and used for target practice. The Chancellor Mowga was taken by a band of renegade Klingons that opposed the Khitomer Accords. Their objective was to leave Klingon space, find a world where they could raise families as 'true Klingons'. The Captain, Emkaien wanted to begin the search near the Pinchot Expanse in the hopes of locating his wife, Jenneth. His decision was proved when Jenneth's escape pod was located following her escape from the transport ship Another Profitable Venture. Commanding Officer: Emkaien. First Officer: Hakaath Second Officer: Therouk Third Officer: Thorum of Krell.
Kish-Tek class shuttleEdit
- An obsolete Klingon shuttlecraft design, originally assigned to D-7 class cruisers of the pre-treaty Klingon Empire. As of 2364, all Kish-Tek class shuttlecraft had been decommissioned, and were no longer in service within the Klingon Empire. Vurk and Tirgil purchased one ship of this class from a commercial dealer.
FMS Latinum QuidEdit
- The Latinum Quid was a Ferengi Treasury vessel. The Latinum Quid was destroyed en route to Ferenginar by the Free Trade Vessel Solar Winds. Though (under normal circumstances) more than capable of defending itself, the ship was sabotaged by Mr. Big and his nefarious organization called The Core, in order to cover up the presence of faux latinum amongst the cargo of normal latinum. The Solar Winds, under orders from Mr. Big, attacked the Latinum Quid, setting off an explosive device hidden within the latinum cargo. At the time of the attack, the Latinum Quid was under the escort of the USS Chimera, but was still lost with all hands. In the ensuing engagement, the Solar Winds was heavily damaged in the same engagement. Commanding Officer: Daimon Furrent.
The Lucky LadyEdit
- The Free Trade Vessel Lucky Lady was a private cargo ship out of Cygnax 7. The Lucky Lady delivered an antiquated Antarean shuttle to Goshen on Deep Space 3. Commanding Officer: Dersick
- Personal transport for Vodic. He was using it to transport himself for a roundevous with his nephews, Vurk and Tirgil at the Enclave. The ship had priority clearance from Enclave Flight Control to land during a high traffic period.
The Pequod was an unspecified class of transport vessel. Of a substantial size, though still capable of making a landing in a capital ship's landing bay. The Pequod located the remnants of the Mahr ships that invaded the Federation planet Kalimor 25 years prior. The ships were adrift inside the Miragosa Nebula, abandoned. The Pequod carried jumpships, capable of making a forced landing and boarding on enemy vessels. Though Pequod was tough ship, it took a serious beating navigating the Nebula, and could not remain long. Master: Captain Keller. Helm: Sparks Chief Engineer: Natok
- The Free Ferengi Trade Ship Profit Margin was an old Kish-Tek class Klingon shuttle designated K-105 that was purchased from a dealer naned Zikthak Tubaret and subsequently named by the Ferengis Vurk and Tirgil. The shuttle was identified by Yeoman Burghoff on Deep Space 3 as the type of shuttle seen aboard Klingon D7 battle cruisers. Despite the Klingon pedigree, the shuttle was resgistered with the Ferengi Commerce Authority. When the revelation concerning its pedigree was made, Tirgil accused Vurk: "You told me it was Parvekian!"
FMS Profitable VentureEdit
- The Profitable Venture was a Ferengi D'Kora-class cruiser that served as a trading ship under the command of Daimon Yurrel. The ship was destroyed in the Pinchot Expanse.
One of the advanced starships in Mel Hermanson's task force. The Regula had taken a direct hit to their main power systems during the suicide run of the unmanned Mahr ships. There was no mention of its final fate.
- The Ru-Tang was a vessel that visited the recreation depot at Axinar IV. Lt. Karen Denali won a bottle of scotch from its engineer. Details on the vessel were unknown.
- The Runabout Bond was a predecessor to the Danube-class runabouts which came into service around 2373. The Bond was equipped with a tractor beam emitter large enough to tow starships in and around spacedock, and a compact personnel transporter. Unlike succeeding runabouts, the Runabout Bond did not have warp capability and was truly suited for short-distance, heavy space-port operations (such as moving vessels, containers, etc.).
- The Solar Winds was listed as a Free Trade Vessel but had a proven reputation of being a pirate vessel known to frequent the area known as the Pinchot Expanse. Equipped with holodecks, a large shuttlecraft hangar, as well as a fully equipped sick bay, The Solar Winds carried a cloaking device. The ship's complement was entirely composed of females. The ship's captain, Britarra, was a ruthless Orion female who lived for the fight, had a thirst for blood, and would not let anyone stand in her way, including her own crew. The Solar Winds was a powerful pirate vessel and should have been more than a match for a standard-equipped Oberth-class Starfleet vessel like the USS Chimera. However, thanks to an alien weapon referred to by Chief Knox as "The Big Gun" installed on the USS Chimera, when the two ships first squared off, the outcome was a draw. The Solar Winds was not so fortunate in the second encounter with the Chimera; thinking that the Chimera was gearing up to use her "Big Gun" again, which fed a ship's shield energy back on itself, essentially "stunning a ship," Britarra ordered the Solar Winds to drop her shields to render the "Big Gun's" energy ineffective. Commander Torkelson, aboard the Chimera, used the "Big Gun's" energy build up as a ruse, however, to get the Solar Winds to drop her shields and then unleashed a barrage of standard weapons on the Solar Winds, crippling it. However, before the Chimera could finish the battle with the Solar WInds, the Chimera was called to rescue the missing Lt. Renova Exler who was adrift in an escape pod. The Solar Winds was able to limp away from the conflict, but because the Solar Winds and her crew were banned or were not welcome in certain ports (such as the Enclave), Britarra and her crew could not go to the Borquin shipyards. Britarra considered Hawkin Grel the best at ship repair. Grel had banned them, but would let them in if Mr. Big told him to. Mr. Big refused, claiming that having Grel let the Solar Winds in would cost him more than he was willing to pay. Instead, Mr. Big Suggested Pewtriss Vask at Fahrion. He told Britarra he would call ahead and tell Vask to expect them. Britarra considered Vask a hack, but had few options. Though the ship arrived safely, Britarra struggled to scrape together the latinum to repair her ship. Coming up short, Vask refused to do any more work until he'd been paid. Britarra's response was to break into the shipyard and steal the Solar Winds out of the repair yard. Repairs had been nearly completed, weapons, propulsion and life support marginally online. Britarra discovered later, following the ship's uneventful departure that all of the repairs had been paid for by the Ferengi Vodic. Command override software had been integrated into the ship's systems, allowing Vodic to take control of any system at his whim. He had a mission for Britarra's ship, and having the Orion Captain say no was not an option. Commanding Officer - Britarra. Navigation Officer: Melion; Former First Officer: Jenneth; Chief Medical Officer: Dr. Piglet (pronounced "peelay").
- The Successful Negotiations was an antiquated Antarean shuttle that Goshen acquired in exchange for an outstanding debt owed him by the trader/pirate, Dersick. The shuttle design was a favorite among smugglers because of its configuration for hiding contraband. The shuttle was used to take Goshen, Lt. Renova Exler and Dr. Rachel Winston to the Enclave, a known pirate hideout, the Enclave, to retrieve a deutronium interphase generator for Deep Space 3. After retrieving the generator (and a couple of misappropriated containers belonging to the pirate ship, the Solar Winds), the Successful Negotiations was pursued by the Solar Winds into the area of the Pinchot Expanse called the Rough Seas, a permanent type 7 ion storm where the Successful Negotiations was then destroyed. Just before the ship's destruction, Goshen and Dr. Winston were beamed to the USS Chimera while Renova Exler was beamed aboard the Solar Winds along with the shuttle's cargo.
One of the ships in Mel Hermanson's task force. The Typhon suffered impact hits from four Mahr ships during their suicide run. Typhon's final fate was unknown.
The USS Barrett was one of three Federation Starships assigned to Task Force 42 sent to investigate the communications blackout at Deep Space Three.
- The USS Caravelle was a Freedom-class, assigned to Admiral Thomas' Task Force 51. Equipped with a single warp nacelle, the USS Caravelle was initially assigned the search for the Antarean shuttle Successful Negotiations after it reported it was under attack near the Rough Seas in the Pinchot Expanse. Commanding Officer: Captain Plodec
- The USS Cassiopeia was a decommissioned Oberth-class starship that was sent to Deep Space 3 for salvage. A warp coil from the USS Cassiopeia was removed and installed on the USS Chimera.
- The USS Chimera (NCC-11555) was an Oberth-class starship commissioned on stardate 369032.2 (Editor's Note: the stardate quoted in the first episode may be an error; an extra digit was added to the stardate making it appear the ship was built long after the time period in which it is set.). The ship was built under Naval Construction Contract (NCC) number 11555 at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. The ship's dedication plaque bore a quote from Miguel deCervantes from the musical Man of La Mancha: "To dream the impossible dream...to run where the brave dare not go...to reach the unreachable star." The Chimera underwent extensive field modifications and did not meet Starfleet specifications in many areas. Outdated technology from a variety of cultures was incorporated into the ship. The ship had a current crew complement of 45. Commanding Officer: LT Renova Exler. First Officer: Ens Owen Kyle. Second Officer: Ensign Grelding. Chief Engineer: Master Chief Petty Officer Burt "Hard" Knox. Assistant Chief Engineer: Petty Officer Takahara. Communications Officer: Ensign Grelding. Chief Medical Officer: Dr. Rachel Winston. Navigation Officer: Ensign Randy Thomas; Medical Techs: Kiara Johnson and Giles.
- The USS Goldberg (NCC-8206A) was a Bristol-class transport vessel. This particular class of starship had been Starfleet’s primary container carrier for several decades, having replaced the aging Ptolemy-class transport/tugs near the end of the 2390s. The USS Goldberg was capable of carrying numerous types of containers, including cargo, personnel, hospital and supply containers, though in its current role with the 214th Starfleet Construction Battalion, the USS Goldberg had as its primary function the transportation of supplies and materials to assist in the construction/repair of Starfleet ships and facilities. Its most recent assignment was the transport of construction equipment and cargo containers to Deep Space 3 for the repair of its crippled turbolifts, along with other critical systems. Commanding Officer: Captain Reuben
- The USS Gorgon (NCC-42047) was a Mediterranean-class technical supply ship with a crew of 30. Equipped to transport medical, technical and scientific equipment or weapons to remote outposts or starships operating at the Federation borders, the ship itself was armed only with type 7 phasers. Large doors provided easy access to the shuttlebay/cargo section which occupied most part of the saucer. The ship was not suited for bulky equipment; it was intentionally designed small and simple, for it usually delivered urgently needed goods. The USS Gorgon made infrequent supply runs to Deep Space 3. Commanding Officer: Captain Baker. Communications Officer: Ensign James.
- The USS Horizon (NCC-176) was a Federation Daedalus-class starship that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-22nd century. The USS Horizon was the first Federation Starship to visit Sigma Iotia II. During the visit, the crew left behind a book, "The Chicago Mobs of the Twenties." The planet's inhabitants modeled their society along the lines of the book. They even changed the name of their world from Dustria to the Federation designation, Sigma Iotia II.
USS Joseph KittingerEdit
- The USS Joseph Kittinger (NCC-22800) was an Excelsior-class starship which served as the flagship of Admiral Bartholomew Thomas' Task Force 51. Described by Neela Gliss as the "Modern marvel" of Starfleet. Commanding Officer: Captain Iridian. Chief Engineer: Commander Watson. Petty Officer: Yeoman Blank.
- The USS Leone was an Oberth-class starship in a deep space scout configuration. The Leone was caught with its shields down during a meteor shower and deemed irreparable. With engines powered down the Leone was towed to Deep Space 3 from Starbase 512 by the USS Gorgon. The Leone, slated for dismantling/recycling, was to be turned over to Lt. Forrestal upon arrival at the station, but was intercepted by Master Chief Petty Officer Burt "Hard" Knox, who took the ship from the Gorgon instead. Chief Knox, the Chief of Engineering from the USS Chimera had his engineering teams, led by Engineer Takahara, beam aboard the Leone and start scavenging parts for Chimera. Knox believed that Forrestal would waste too much time with formal procedures regarding the dismantling of the ship and wanted to get the parts he needed for the Chimera, among them being a second stage inertial dampener. In addition to being a source for spare parts, the Leone was also carrying a colony of duranium-based, insect-like anthropoids that fed on exotic metals. They have since infiltrated and infested DS3. After the Leone was identified by the crew as "patient zero", the source of the anthropoid infestation, the Leone was disconnected from DS3's umbilicals and towed outside the station. There, on the orders of Station Commander Captain Montaine Buchanan, the Chimera and the Remington opened fire on her. The Leone, along with any surviving bugs onboard, were destroyed.
The name USS Liberty has been carried by two Federation starships. The first, a Saladin-class starship, registry number NCC-687 under the command of Captain Richard Sheridan. The original Liberty had been conducting a survey in the Pinchot Expanse as a part of "Operation Bimini" when the ship encountered a field of chroniton particles. The ship began to experience shipwide system failures. First navigation, then engineering. Captain Sheridan then ordered the Liberty crew to escape pods. In 2364, while looking for an offline nav buoy, the starship USS Chimera came upon the escape pods, intact, and with the crews alive and well. The second Liberty was a freedom-class starship registry number NCC-68701. As of 2364, the ship was still in commission. Commanding Officer: Captain Richard Sheridan. First Officer: Lieutenant Commander Samuel Kyle.
- The USS Remington (NCC-19827) was a Miranda-class light cruiser configured as a science vessel. It was temporarily docked at DS3 to provide support while the Chimera was away on a diplomatic mission to the planet Melnora. The Remington was moored at DS3 at the beginning of the bug crisis, and suffered a small infestation of the duranium based arthropods. Remington, operating jointly with the Chimera, located 'patient zero', the source of the bugs, the USS Leone. Remington and Chiera completely destroyed the Leone. Following the resolution of the bug crisis, Starfleet realized that it was no longer practical to leave a single ship assigned to DS3. Admiral Havelock, Captain Steele's superior at Starfleet HQ, science division, reassigned Remington to Deep Space 3. Commanding Officer: Captain Russell "Rusty" Steele. First Officer: Lieutenant Commander Larry Pierce. Chief Engineer: Lieutenant Commander Gant. Chief Medical Officer: Dr. Hern-Chinz. Medical Officer: Dr. Tricant. Chief Science Officer: Lieutenant Commander Monahan. Junior Science Officer: Lieutenant N'Kana
USS Sutter's MillEdit
- The USS Sutter's Mill (NCC-37123) was a refitted Merced-class ship. By 2350, the Merced-class starships were beginning to be decommissioned in favor of newer designs and the USS Sutter's Mill was spared that fate to become a platform to develop prototype systems. Within a few years, the Sutter's Mill had reached the end of its projected life span as a prototype testbed and was decommissioned and sent to Deep Space 3 for salvage. The ship was stripped and several of the ship's turbolift cars were retrofitted and placed in service aboard the station. However, the refit modifications required, coupled with small leaks of anti-gravity coolant in the turbolift system eventually caused galvanic corrosion, resulting in a catastrophic turbolift accident that nearly killed the station's commander, Captain Montaine Buchanan. Further investigation concluded that the accident which had injured Captain Buchanan was, in fact, the result of metal eating insect-like arthropods that were feeding on the metals in the turbolift shafts and other locations in the station.
- The USS Trosper was an Oberth-class starship assigned to the 214th Starfleet Construction Battalion, currently assignned Starbase 512. Commanding Officer: Captain Don Walsh; SCE Engineer: Lt. Commander Barreto; SCE Engineer: Lieutenant Lolo. Security Chief: LT Smith. Security Officer: Ens Wesson
- The USS Twi-El-Nar was the Command ship of three Federation Starships assigned to Task Force 42 sent to investigate the communications blackout at Deep Space Three. The Twi-El-Nar was also carrying special equipment, along with secret orders for the USS Chimera. It also carried the USS Liberty survivors back to the core worlds. Commanding Officer: Captain Balphan
- The USS Yarlow was one of three Federation starships assigned to Task Force 42 sent to investigate the communication blackout at Deep Space Three. After the task force escorted the four generation five fesarius class starships back across the border into First Federation space, The Yarlow remained behind, patrolling the border to let the First Federation know how seriously Starfleet was taking the situation.
A Starbase was a generic term for a large, multipurpose facility. In regards to the Federation, Starbases projected a Starfleet, and Federation presence far from the core worlds. Starbases could be planet bound, as was the case with Starbase 12, with orbital repair yards, or they could be the gigantic, stand-alone spacedocks, like Deep Space Three, with the capacity of docking and/or maintaining 16 capital ships simultaneously. Starfleet Starbases nominally have a Captain as a Commanding Officer, but, depending on the location, and/or tactical importance, the base may have a flag officer as station commander. Starbases may also comprise the headquarters for the sector they are in, or a base of operations for a Task Force. Individual units, such as the 214th Construction Battalion were also headquartered at Starbases. Most starbases simply have a numerical designation. Others are named, such as Star Station Earhardt. There were over 700 starbases as of 2364. Starbases could also be the center of commerce for the area of space they were in, or an outpost at the borders of Federation space (Such as the Deep Space Stations.)
Deep Space 3Edit
- Deep Space 3 was the space station the series revolves around. Commissioned long ago to fulfill a commitment to the First Federation, who later shut their borders to the Federation, its situation was akin to the small frontier town of the American West that had been bypassed by the railroad. Located between the Ferengi Alliance and the First Federation at the edge of Federation space, the station was perceived as unnecessary and an embarrassment to Starfleet. According to records, the station was never fully finished. According to Commander Twist, "[It] was never really finished. At some point, Starfleet stopped construction when the station was functional, tied off the loose ends and called it good." The majority of the occupied sections of the station were run down and almost dilapidated, mostly due to the stingy requisitioning habits of Captain Montaine Buchanan, the commanding officer of the station. Luxuries aboard the station were at a bare minimum - even the plaza and promenade were scavenged for parts and repurposed while the space itself was powered down shortly after Captain Buchanan assumed command. The one amenity was a solitary, yet obsolete holodeck. As originally planned, Deep Space 3, like her sister space stations, was designed to accommodate up to 16 of Starfleet's capital ships and a complement of up to 50,000 full-time residents, workers and dependents. Deep Space 3 was divided into six main modules: At the top was the mushroom-shaped drydock module and the station's primary docking facility. As planned, the drydock section was equipped to handle any type of major ship maintenance, short of a full shipyard. Next was the cylindrical weapons arsenal, spare parts and storage section. Next, the bell-shaped administration and recreation module housed offices along with their functions, visitor staterooms and the recreation section, which included a 3000-foot diameter park-like arboretum. The residential module provided space for the station's personnel as well as housed the sickbay and the plaza. Below the residential module was the engineering and lifesupport control module where all fabrication and repair was conducted. The final module at the base of the station was primarily for life support gas storage, waste reclaimation, and reactor equipment. Commanding Officer: Captain Montaine Buchanan. Executive Officer: Lieutenant Commander Gregory Torkelson. Chief Engineer: Lieutenant Commander Jennifer Forrestal. Security Chief: Lieutenant Nathaniel Farmer. Chief Medical Officer: Commander Arban Breetal. Engineering Officer: Ensign Ulion. Administrative Assistants: Yeoman Avery Tovar-Smith, Yeoman Walter Burghoff. Medical Officer: Lieutenant Commander Wylothia. Engineering Technicians: Jack Graves, Neela Gliss. Medical Technicians: Kell, Giles.
- Montaine Buchanan was assigned here along with Arban Breetal following their rescue from Kalimor, and prior to Buchanan's promotion to Captain. He followed this assignment with his subsequent posting to Deep Space 3. He served as the Starbase Logistics Officer, and held the ranks of Lieutenant Commander for 9 years, and full Commander for 4 years.Breetal served there as a Medical Officer.
- Starbase 64 was referenced in a conversation between Admiral Lafayette Halliburton and Captain Montaine Buchanan. The admiral told the captain that Starbase 64's commanding officer, a Captain Hayut, had been selected to fill a vacancy in the Starfleet Logistical Offices. No other mention was made of the starbase.
- Starbase 512 was the closest Federation starbase to Deep Space 3. Base of operations for the 214th Construction Battalion and their starships, the USS Trosper, an Oberth-class starship, and the USS Goldberg, a Bristol-class transport vessel
- Starbase 621 was a Federation starbase located near the Tzenkethi border. This starbase was referenced as a possible diversionary target of a Tzenkethi attack in a conversation between Admiral Bartholomew Thomas and Admiral Andra Voychelis of Starfleet Command. According to Admiral Thomas, the base was heavily fortified and fully stocked. According to Admiral Voychelis, the Joint Chiefs at Starfleet HQ believed the true target of the Tzenkethi might have been the Draconis system near the Hellespont Nebula.
These were space-borne constructs. There were as many types of space stations as there were stars, running the gamut from small communication relay stations and scientific research and observation stations with a complement of one to two people, to the massive Starfleet spacedocks that comprised a majority of Starfleet starbases and deep space stations throughout the Alpha and Beta quadrants, with complements of up to 50,000. Space stations were often constructed in orbit over a planet, moon, or some other celestial body, such as Jupiter Station. They could also be built at a Lagrange point, or fixed astrometric position, such as Deep Space Three's location near the Pinchot Expanse. Space stations also provided logistical support for visiting ships, such as repair and retrofitting (like the Borquin shipyards) or a trading post. Some facilities were privately owned, but most, in the case of Starfleet, were operated by a government, or the military.
- A ship repair facility owned by Hawkin Grel. The preferred destination of the Solar Winds following the second battle with the USS Chimera. Grel was among many facilities' proprietors that had banned Solar Winds from approaching. Britarra knew that Grel would let her ship in if Mr. Big told him to, but Mr. Big refused. He needed Grel's cooperation, and telling Grel to let in the Solar Winds would have cost him more than he was prepared to pay.
UnitsEditStarfleet Corps of Engineers - 214th Construction Battalion - The Starfleet Corps of Engineers - 214th Construction Battalion was an engineering unit based on Starbase 512. The unit, under the command of Commander Olivia Twist, was assigned the task of repairing and upgrading Deep Space 3. Under Twist's command were two starships - the USS Trosper, an Oberth-class starship commanded by Captain Don Walsh and the USS Goldberg, a Bristol-class transport vessel commanded by Captain Reuben.
Task Force 51Edit
- Task Force 51 was identified approaching Deep Space 3 with Admiral Bartholomew Thomas' flagship, the USS Joseph Kittinger in the lead. The Task Force was comprised of the Admiral's flagship and "three smaller vessels," one of which was later identified as the USS Caravelle, a Freedom-class starship.
Task Force 42Edit
- Task Force 42 was a group of three starships dispatched by Starfleet to investigate the communications blackout surrounding Deep Space Three. It consisted of the Starships USS Yarlow and USS Barrett, under the command of Captain Balphan aboard the USS Twi-El-Nar. The ships arrived in time to escort the four Generation five Fesarius class starships that were blockading the station back across the border into First Federation space.
