Starbase 91 was a Federation space station, a Watchtower-class starbase in Starfleet service in the 23rd and 24th century. Starbase 91's lay several light-years outside of the Lembatta Cluster, in the the galaxy's Beta Quadrant. It was nicknamed "last petrol station before the unknown". (PRM novel: Fire with Fire)
Starbase 91 was constructed in the year 2275 to monitor the Federation's neighbours, the Klingon Empire and the Gorn Hegemony. A deep-space sensor phalanx, Echelon 1, was positioned alongside it. However, fifty years of peace with the Klingons, and self-isolation of the Romulan Star Empire and the Gorn diminished the station's strategic value. Although the station was kept up-to-date for years, it was left to degrade since 2335. That caused systems like the tram to fail.
One of the establishments on the station was the Starlight.
