Starbase One, aka Spacedock. I won't deny I was disappointed with its replacement. Doubly so, in fact, as on a not entirely unrelated note, one of the iconic bits of concept art back from when Perpetual was drawing up the plans that had me enthusiastic was Starfleet Academy/Command down on Earth's surface. The new spacedock is just weird looking. Took some getting used to.

I don't know if anyone has a detailed timeline leading up to the 'current' stardate, but if so, odds are the original Starbase One was destroyed at some point or another. This isn't like Mir, that you can just let burn up in the atmosphere. I checked Earth, couldn't find a crater.

I tend to agree I loved the idea of the old space dock where the ship would literally enter in and dock around the central axis. How that beast of a star base could be blown to bits, I am not sure...but I bet the rain of debris was beautiful...

Maybe the Borg blew it up in First Contact, like the idea of the Borg having a Queen blew my mind.

Oh, wait, a hive mind society having a queen is one of the oldest cliches ever. What I meant was that the dream I had where all the Borg were dressed like queens blew my mind.

Deanna was at the controls trying to get her Starbase Ops officer certification and she crashed it into the pacific.
