# 1 Oversize bases

I have noticed that all the Star Trek canon bases are oversized except for Earth Spacedock. Earth Spacedock is 1/2 size smaller than it should be because the doors are supposed to dwarf the Galaxy with but in this game, its not so. Meanwhile the Deep Space 9 and K7 are oversized. Deep Space 9 in this game is 3 times the size it should be and have 1/3 as many windows as it does in the show. K7 is like 10 times the size it should be. In TOS the K7 Station was barely larger than 3 Constitution class ships. You can't say that K7 was upgraded since it was just uncoverd from cloak 2 years ago, and that that style of design has not been in use since TOS. As you look at TOS, the Motion Picture movies, TNG, and the newer movie, you can see that Earth Spacedock has been changed and upgraded to fit the current Flag ships. Since the Odyssey Enterprise is not wider than a Galaxy Class, then there is no need to make Earth Spacedock bigger than canon. It would nice if they brought Earth Spacedock's size up a tad to reflect the true canon size so it can easily fit the Galaxy Class through the doors.

Its funny that all the new Starbases, including the fleet ones, are small and don't have hangars or docking bays that can fit even the smallest starhip. They are more the size of outpost stations than starbases.
