Starbase 6 was one of the original seventeen Federation starbases provided for in the original Articles of the Federation, and as such was likely constructed or planned around the later 22nd century. (ST reference: Star Fleet Technical Manual)

This base was located in the general vicinity of Merak, Avalon, Holloway, Grief, Maximilian and Vega, as well as the general proximity of Starbase 5. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)


As of the early 23rd century, Starbase 6's structure was mainly a dished circular hull some 500 meters in diameter with an antenna and sensor cluster at its center. Nearby to the disk, numerous drydock frames for ship construction and repair were arrayed. (TOS novel: The Final Reflection)

Starbase 6 was maintained by civilians from Tiburon. It was renowned for having superior athletic facilities and hosted a number of tournaments. It also was the home of the Crystal Bar. (Last Unicorn RPG module: TOS Core Game Book)

In the year 2264, Doctor Leonard McCoy traveled to Starbase 6 from the Aldebaran Colony, after taking of leave of absence from the USS Enterprise. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

Starbase 6 was commanded by Admiral Borck in 2266. His adjunct was Commander Willard Decker. (TOS - The Brave and the Bold, Book One novella: The First Artifact)

On stardate 1841.2 in that year, the USS Enterprise visited the base to pick up an Omegan ambassador, who needed an escort home. (TOS comic: "The Enterprise Mutiny")

In early 2268, the Enterprise was en route to Starbase 6 for a scheduled layover and extended shore leave when she was called away to respond to a distress call from the mining colony on Angrena. Following this mission, the Enterprise once again headed for the base where Captain James T. Kirk was ordered by a board of inquiry into his actions on Angrena, to submit a full report to Starfleet Command. (TOS - Star Trek: The Manga - Uchu comic: "Art of War")

Around stardate 4307.1, the USS Intrepid worked in conjunction with the base on a mission to investigate the loss of contact with the Gamma 7A solar system in sector 39J. When contact was then lost with the Intrepid, Starbase 6 issued a rescue priority to the Enterprise, which was already on route to the starbase. Following the investigation, the Enterprise continued on course for the base. (TOS episode & Star Trek 9 novelization: The Immunity Syndrome)

A short time later, the USS Yorktown was en route to Starbase 6, now under Admiral Benthoven, from Earth Colony 7 bearing the secret weapon, Excalibur. During the voyage the Yorktown was attacked by Andorian rebels in an attempt to capture the weapon. Fortunately, the Excalibur was placed inside a shuttlecraft and escaped. (TOS - The New Voyages short story: "The Enchanted Pool")

A few weeks later, a team of astrophysicists from Starbase 6 boarded the Enterprise for an investigation and observation of a nearby star about to go supernova. (TOS - The New Voyages 2 short story: "Marginal Existence")

Later that year, the Enterprise traveled to Starbase 6, now under Commodore Enwright, where she rendezvoused with the USS Lexington, and was refitted with the M-5 computer. Following the installation of the device, all but 20 of the Enterprise's crew was offloaded to the base while the starship participated in a Starfleet battle simulation. (TOS episode & Star Trek 9 novelization: The Ultimate Computer)

The Romulan cloaking device appropriated by the Enterprise in 2268 was initially examined at Starbase 6. (FASA RPG module: Operation Shadowfall)

In 2269, Starbase 6 was under the command of Commodore George Reed. (Last Unicorn RPG module: TOS Core Game Book)

In 2270, Starbase 6 was mentioned as the closest base to the Enterprise during her investigation of a planet where the landing party ended up being held captive by a robot probe. (TOS - The New Voyages 2 short story: "The Patient Parasites")

Shortly after, the Enterprise docked at Starbase 6 for shore leave and repairs following an extended mission to the planet Waycross and a detour to the planet Perry. (TOS novel: Perry's Planet)

Starbase 6 was still operational in the 24th century. In 2365, the USS Enterprise-D transported Kareen Brianon to Starbase 6 from Gravesworld following the death of her mentor, Dr. Ira Graves. (TNG episode: "The Schizoid Man")
