Starbase 36 was a Federation starbase in service in the 23rd[1] and 24th[2] centuries. (TNG episode: "The Mind's Eye", DSC episode: "Brother")

History and specifications[edit | edit source]

Its computer systems used Standard Unlimited Virtual memory.

The station had at least two hotels, a sensory museum, and facilities for shopping and gambling. There was a club that was popular with off-duty Starfleet personnel, but its owner in the 2360s decade was a surgically disguised Orion agent. (TNG novel: Survivors)

During the Federation-Klingon War, the Starfleet medical frigate USS Hiawatha was en route to Starbase 36 in 2256 when it was ambushed by Klingons and crashed on an interstellar asteroid. (DSC episode: "Brother")

In the year 2257, its location was marked on a star chart used by the USS Discovery crew to follow the trajectory of Lieutenant Spock's shuttle. (DSC episode: "An Obol for Charon")

Circa 2359, the USS Starbound visited the starbase. and its crew took shore leave there. The ensigns of that training cruise attended a seminar on a Starfleet cruiser also docked at the station. Meanwhile, a number of senior officers attended a classified Starfleet Security briefing, at which new Orion body armor was reported. The Starbound also collected a secret cargo of dilithium from the world of Tarba, for delivery to the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards on Mars.

However, while at the starbase, someone leaked news about the dilithium. Orion agents contacted Chief Engineer Nichols of the Starbound and paid him to sabotage the ship. The Orions also set about framing Starbound's Security Chief, Darryl Adin, altering computer records to create suspicious messages and show that he'd attended the classified briefing when, in fact, he'd not been aware of it. The Starbound was attacked by Orion pirates 29 days out from Starbase 36. Adin was later convicted of conspiracy and treason. (TNG novel: Survivors)

In 2364, Lieutenant Commander Data of the USS Enterprise-D remotely accessed, interfaced with, and finally merged with the Starbase 36 computers, in order to find and examine files surrounding the Starbound visit. He discovered Nichols's corruption and proved Adin's innocence. Starfleet Command ordered an investigation of Starbase 36, which revealed the Orion mole. (TNG novel: Survivors)

In late 2367, the USS Enterprise-D was due for a stopover at Starbase 36. Doctor Beverly Crusher recommended that Geordi La Forge have his VISOR checked for malfunctions while at the base. (TNG episode: "The Mind's Eye")

Sometime before 2409, Va'Kel Shon of the Undine Task Force met Data at Starbase 36, during a conference. (STO short story: "Unexpected Honor")
