Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

The Nor class was a 24th century Cardassian space station type, a class of ore processing center stations in Cardassian High Command service by the 2340s decade. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

History and specifications

Nor-class stations were originally of Cardassian design, however individual stations have been under the control of various factions. (TNG novel: The Battle of Betazed, ST video game: Trexels missions: "Intro", "Skirmish", DS9 - Mirror Universe novel: Saturn's Children, STO mission: "Badlands Battlezone")

The Nor-class was marked by a central core surrounded by two rings with a diameter of 1451.82 meters, the outermost of which served as the base for six arching docking pylons, three above and three below, with a total height of 969.26 meters. The majority of Nor-class stations were designed to support mining and refining operations, though they could be adapted to other purposes. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

Following the destruction of Deep Space 9 in 2383, Starfleet constructed a massive Frontier-class starbase in its place. The spokes of the gyro-shaped new Deep Space 9 deliberately evoked the docking rings of its Nor-class predecessor. (DS9 - The Fall novel: Revelation and Dust)

Alternate timelines

Mirror universes

Empok Nor in 2410.

In the mirror universe, the Intendant of Bajor resided on Terok Nor, a Nor-class station in the planet's orbit. Bajor was an important member of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. (DS9 episode: "Crossover")

In the 2370s decade, the Terran Rebellion seized control of both Terok Nor and Empok Nor. The rebels reconfigured the latter into a shipyard for Defiant-class starships. (DS9 - Mirror Universe novel: Saturn's Children)

Admiral Leeta, leader of a Terran Empire invasion force of the primary universe's Badlands, controlled a pair of former Alliance Nor-class stations, Terok and Empok Nor. (STO - New Dawn missions: "Counterpoint", "Badlands Battlezone")

Kelvin timelines

A wrecked Nor-class station.

In the Kelvin timeline, a wrecked Nor-class station drifted in an area code-named "cryophobe". In 2258, it was present during battles between Federation Starfleet and the Romulan Star Empire. (TOS video game: D-A-C)

In an alternate future where the USS Enterprise went missing-in-action in 2262, the Cardassians were members of the Dominion and had placed their Terok Nor station near the mouth of the Bajoran wormhole by the mid-2370s. The time-displaced Enterprise, seized by Gul Skrain Dukat, was temporarily docked at the station. (TOS comic: "The Q Gambit")
