# 1 Station Defenses
06-28-2012, 07:39 AM
Its about time the Devs make the stations have there own weapons. Its canon for the starbases and space stations to have heavy weapon implacements onboard rather than floating satelite turrets. DS9 had its own weapons and defeated a whole large fleet of Klingons. The reason I bring this up, because in the "Capture and Hold" PVP missions the stations have satelite Heavy Weapon Turrets that are being wiped out by groups of players, allowing teams to spawn kill their opponents. If the station had weapon hardpoints like a ship, spawn killing would not be possible. I think this needs to be addressed as soon as possible because players are quiting PVP matches for being spawn killed, thus making PVP less popular.

Technically I don't know if we've ever seen a Federation starbase actually attack anything. I certainly can't think of any thing on screen. So for all we know there is a whole sat network orbiting the thing that does all the shooting along with the starships they would have assigned to them.

# 3 The Way of the Warrior

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Way of the Warrior" is a feature-length episode of the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It is the season premiere of the fourth season and marks the arrival of Worf as a permanent crew member aboard Deep Space Nine. This episode was also showcased in the 2006 special edition release Star Trek: Fan Collective - Klingon.
Plot

The station is full of Klingons who have arrived to help Starfleet fight the Dominion. They are led by General Martok, who is not being open with Captain Sisko about the Klingons' plans and motives. While on the station, Martok's troops commit several questionable acts, including attacking the Cardassian tailor Elim Garak, and searching ships without warrants in Bajoran space. Sisko calls on the one officer in Starfleet who has perhaps the most experience in dealing with Klingons: Worf (who joins just after the destruction of the Enterprise-D.)

[edit to add]...

The station, which has been recently armed with improved weapons including 5000 photon torpedoes which the Klingons think is a bluff, defends itself well but still takes heavy damage. Klingon warriors beam aboard and attack the crew at Ops with bat'leths. Losses are great on both sides. When several Starfleet vessels arrive, Sisko argues with Gowron that this situation is the best their mutual enemy, the Dominion, could hope for. With the most powerful Alpha Quadrant forces at war with each other, the Dominion will be free to sweep in and take over. A furious Gowron agrees and the Klingons stand down, but not before warning Sisko; "You have sided against us in battle, and this, we do not forgive - or forget!"

In several TOS episodes it is mentioned about either outpost or star base phaser banks..might be either "Balance of Terror", "Doomsday", or "Arena". We all know that DS9 had hard-point defenses that were upgraded when the Federation occupied it after the Cardassian occupation.

Oddly, those weapon systems appear to have disappeared by 2409.
