Starbase 7 was a Federation Starfleet starbase, in particular one of the first such installations constructed, in the 2150s.


Starbase 7 is the only starbase in the Andor sector, located at a class K planet which orbits the white dwarf star CJ-884. The base has a planetary outpost as well as space station facilities, which included a free-floating orbital space station, as well as a space station that existed incorporated into the surface of an asteroid. Starbase 7 is the closest starbase to Andoria and is the official headquarters of the Starfleet 7th Fleet. It is also very close to the star systems Ejul Thelni and Alpha Centauri. Starbase 7 serves as a supply base for ships patrolling the Romulan Star Empire' border. (TOS novel: Crisis on Centaurus; Last Unicorn RPG module: The Andorians: Among the Clans)

This base was designated as the headquarters for Starfleet Intelligence's intelligence sector 1, with an activities unit monitoring internal affairs. Bases that were under the command of Starbase 7's intelligence staff included those located at Alpha Centauri, Andor, Bardex III, Cerberus, Dadax, Darius III, Edos, Hurlin, Izar, Kadacohr, Koromond, MAO III, Maximilian, Tellar and Earth, as well as stations at Starbase 1, Starbase 4, Starbase 5, Starbase 6, Starbase 8, Starbase 16 and Starbase 24. Starbase 7 was the control base of Interstellar Import-Export, a Starfleet Intelligence front organization based in Flaxis on Alpha Centauri VII. This base also was the home assignment of the 23rd century's Chief of Starfleet Intelligence Dexter O. Armbruster. (FASA RPG module: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

Starbase 7 was the home of a Federation Embassy, where the Federation Diplomatic Corps could organize their activities in the vicinity. (TOS novel: Death's Angel)


By the 2250s decade, the small asteroid installation had grew into a large base spreading across the whole surface of the asteroid. Including extensive medical and starship repair facilities.

Eight Federation starships visited the base, with each transporting ambassadors on a course to Detente Station 1. The Enterprise ferried a group of about a dozen ambassador, including Sarek from Starbase 7 to the Neutral Zone station. (TOS novel: Death's Angel)

The Andorians: Among the Clans seems to contradict the statement that Starbase 7 is an asteroid, and comic book appearances have shown this base as a space station. This incongruity has been resolved here by theorizing the asteroid station and other space station facilities all coexist in the vicinity of the planetary base listed in Among the Clans.
