Although Earth Spacedock's main frame has originally been constructed sometime prior to 2285, it has since been outfitted with state-of-the-art technology. As of 2410, the commanding officer of the station is Captain Akira Sulu who handles organisational businesses for the station's Commander-in-Chief Fleet Admiral Jorel Quinn.
Earth Spacedock is one of Starfleet's largest orbital installations. Its beam and draft are 3,812 m and 5,544 m, respectively, with a total dry mass of 10,552,000 t. It offers a volume of 21,924,000 m³ and has a complement of 312,000.

The Mezzanine is an elevated walkway accessible via the turbolifts. It allows an overview over the entire main concourse and shipyard. It offers seating areas, including a 3D-chess table, and is designed as a hang-out and relaxation area. It also contains a memorial plaque, dedicated to deceased Star Trek cast and crew.
- “Welcome to Earth Spacedock”: After rescuing colonists from Vega Colony in early 2409, you are ordered to return to Earth Spacedock to drop off the evacuees and meet with Admiral Quinn.

- “Stranded in Space”: Before embarking on your first mission after your turbulent training cruise, you have the option to seek out Malcolm Sissel on Earth Spacedock, who will instruct you on how to undock your ship.
- “Surface Tension”: In early 2410, Earth Spacedock is heavily damaged by the Undine during an ambush. Although the attack was merely concerted as a distraction from the Undine's main target, Qo'noS, Admiral Quinn was severely injured and Lieutenant Commander E'genn was exposed as an Undine infiltrator.
In addition to deck 83, Earth Spacedock's deck 47-main area is outfitted with several doors and objects which can be interacted with as part of user-generated content. All of these "Foundry doors" were ported over from the original, pre-Season 9, map.
- This map replaced the old Earth Spacedock map with the release of Season 9. In the mission “Surface Tension”, which was released along with the redesign, the player fights Undine boarding parties in the destroyed old interior map of the Spacedock, thereby giving somewhat of an in-universe explanation for the map-revamp.
- Following the death of Leonard Nimoy in February 2015, a plaque dedicated to the memory of all deceased cast and crew of the Star Trek franchise was erected in the mezzanine, and black banners were displayed during a week of mourning from March 5 through 12.
