The K-class space station was a Federation starbase design in service from at least the early 2240s. (ST reference: Star Trek Maps; Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual; TOS novel: Final Frontier)
History and specificationsEdit
The K-class station consisted of a cone-shaped command tower on the dorsal surface of a discus-shaped primary hull. This was connected to a drum-shaped secondary hull which housed a shuttle bay. Branching out from between the two hulls were three arms, located at the end of each one was a smaller discus-shaped module topped with an office or habitat tower. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9 episode: "Trials and Tribble-ations")
The 30 decks of the K-class and the three outboard modules labeled K-A, K-B and K-C mainly consisted of storage areas and industrial fabrication facilities. Among the recreational areas available on the station was a bar frequented as a hangout for many of the station's personnel. The manager's office featured a two person transporter pad. The station had two docking bays for small starships and auxiliary spacecraft. These shuttlebays were visually numbered; "1" being on the port side, and "2" on the starboard side.
