Starbase 185 was a Federation starbase facility in Starfleet service in the 24th century. It was located in the Iota Leonis star system, in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant, around 7,000 light-years space distance from System J-25. (TNG episode: "Q Who"; TTN novel: Fallen Gods)
- The novel Fallen Gods gives the base's location as the planet Iota Leonis II, but the star is located less than 80 light years from Sol, which is inconsistent with it being one of the Federation's farthest outposts towards the Delta Quadrant, and also inconsistent with Iota Leonis also being the primary of the Argelius system.
History and specifics
The USS Enterprise was transported to System J-25 in 2365. At this point, Starbase 185 was the closest starbase to the Enterprise's position (a maximum warp trip of "two years, seven months, three days, eighteen hours"). (TNG episode: "Q Who")
In 2382, Admiral de la Fuego conducted holoconferences from her office at Starbase 185 with Captain Riker and Fleet Admiral Akaar with the assistance of her aide, a Lieutenant named Jenny. (TTN novel: Fallen Gods)
