An alternative approach would be to
all "traditional" Starbase functionality from the Captain's Table and make it more like the one from the books - a social gathering place. Besides Dabo, add a few other games - maybe even one or two which are unique to the Table. Dabo payouts could be slightly larger to encourage traffic.
Thinking about entrances, I think it would be cool to adopt the "door" motif from the novels. Every social zone, and maybe ship interior, could have a door in it which is only interactable by people who have earned access to the Captain's Table. Using the door takes you straight to the lobby.
I think it's a cool option - you still have to travel to a starbase (or Vulcan or wherever) to get there, but at least you don't have to zone to a pointless Captain's Table space map. Providing unique games at least would generate interest in leaving, say, Starbase One to visit the Captain's Table instead.
