So I have to ask, does that mean that nothing is allowed to change or evolve at all? Design concepts change and are updated all the time. Sure they are still apparently using Deepspace K-7 still, but that doesn't mean other facilities couldn't update with the times. The same goes for starship designs. Since the Constitution forward we have seen a trend that has culminated with saucers becoming more wedges, just as an example.

I'd personally like to see a slightly different take on it since I'm still in love with this:

Especially if we could dock in it. Cause I'd be the tech you just developed for saucer seperation and rejoining would work just fine with a ship and a docking port in the starbase. /cough /cough

That sir is my fav to,so what say we turn our backs and let a little something happen to the old one
Give the new one a big main door mini game optionfor docking

Could be just a pipe dream, but I would love to see places evolve and open up. I'll never see paris in real life but hope I'll see it in STO lol. All I'm saying is really with certain demands and with the know how you posess skys the limit kid.

Yeah. That's Earth Space Dock.

The Starbase that was in orbit of earth in TNG and DS9....not gonna lie, I was assuming that would be in STO.

I don't see why a "new" one was needed....change for the sake of change doesn't make sense

No, thats ESD. THIS is McKinley station.

Since ESD got a facelift, and judging the station is holding a geostationary position over North America, there is a good bet that the Cylon Basestar floating next to the new ESD, is a the new McKinley Station.


Someday I honestly like to beam there.

I thought Earth Starbase was supposed to be based on the Orbital Office Complex from TMP? I mean, it looks similar..

But I totally agree with the idea of having a live event where it could be destroyed and collectively craft the new, better looking Starbase. That would be amazingly fun.

This would be amazing! I'd love some kind of Fed vs. Klingon Open PvP event where Starbase is destroyed.
