The K-class space station was a Federation starbase design in service from at least the early 2240s. (ST reference: Star Trek Maps; Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual; TOS novel: Final Frontier)

History and specifications

The K-class station consisted of a cone-shaped command tower on the dorsal surface of a discus-shaped primary hull. This was connected to a drum-shaped secondary hull which housed a shuttle bay. Branching out from between the two hulls were three arms, located at the end of each one was a smaller discus-shaped module topped with an office or habitat tower. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9 episode: "Trials and Tribble-ations"; TOS comic: "Jeopardy at Jutterdon")
