Starbase-42

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

For fifty years those words defined the dreams and ambitions of millions upon millions of men, women, and children. A vision of the future open to all possibilities, all peoples, right there for the taking if we were willing. All we had to do was to put down our differences, our prejudice, our grudges. To let go of age old rivalries whose beginning has long since been forgotten.

Here we stand and remember that future. We look to it here, and hope that we still might reach this point in history.

Welcome to Starbase-42.

We’ve seen some great stuff from the San Diego Comic Con this last week. And a lot of it revolving around next years big movies and series.

This includes CBS streaming only Star Trek Series, which now has a name.

Star Trek: Discovery

And just from what I've seen so far it looks like they will be basing the U.S.S. Discovery off Ralph Macquarie’s original Phase II Enterprise concept design. That frankly looks like it might make an interesting ship once we see what’s coming from the plot.

Station's Log – Stardate 68760.40

The Federation Council, at the behest of Kai Winn of Bajor have decided to host a conference on Starbase-42 focusing on the Spirituality of the Federation. There has been a vocal minority among the Bajoran people who have condemned Federation admission of Bajor on the grounds that the Federation is hostile to anyone who believes in higher powers. The accusation has been taken poorly behind closed doors. The part that troubles several officials is the possibility that they might be right.

Station’s Log Stardate 68691.90

One of the interesting design decisions for Starbase-42 was to keep the enclosed Spacedock design from Starbase-1. The outer space doors sealing in ships that have been damaged or have needs which require a more protective area then just exposed space. The inside of the docking port is just massive when you consider it can fit a Galaxy-Class starship. The O’Neil Cylinder below that, and the additions of the primary anti-matter reactors that are used to provide power to the entire structure puts Starbase-42 closer to eight kilometers in length. Spacedock is only five.

The Inside of the Dyson Sphere from Star Trek: The Next Generation - "Relics"

We’ve gotten most primary systems online and all information networks are operations as well as can be expected. We’re linked into the Federation Database and should have no problems sending reports and updates to Starfleet Command. I hope at least. There is always a shakedown period for any structure.
