Earth Spacedock is a facility orbiting Earth in the Sol System and serves as the main hub for all Federation players.

General information[edit | edit source]

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.

This is where players may purchase personal kits and equipment, as well as alter their appearance and costume, for a price. Players will also find the bank, their fleet bank, and the Exchange, where players purchase and sell items with other players.

Operations & Admiral's Office[edit | edit source]

Operations (the Admiral's Office can be seen on the far left)

In Operations, which is the location of the Admiral's Office, players can talk to Admiral Quinn and get information on what to do once they're commanding their first vessel.

Club 47 & Rondel[edit | edit source]

Mezzanine[edit | edit source]

Deck 47's mezzanine

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.

Missions involved[edit | edit source]

Earth Spacedock, heavily damaged by an Undine ambush in 2410
  • “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.
  • “Blood of Ancients”: The powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants hold a joint briefing on Earth Spacedock to discuss the strategy to combat the Iconians, but the briefing is interrupted by a Herald attack on New Romulus.
  • “Midnight”: During the final battle against the Iconians in Earth orbit, Earth Spacedock is badly damaged and the U.S.S. Chimera assists in its evacuation.

Foundry doors[edit | edit source]

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.

Other involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In Tales of the War #1, Captain Tom Paris meets with Admiral Jorel Quinn in his office onboard ESD to discuss the formation of Delta Flight. It is also implied that Paris used to be the commanding officer of ESD prior to Quinn.
  • In Tales of the War #14, Admiral Quinn records a personal log from his office on ESD. He reflects on the disastrous events of “Broken Circle”, and privately disputes claims that the attack on the Herald Sphere was even a partial victory. He notes that Herald attacks have increased since the attack, and that L'Miren's Heralds are now joining the fight. He notes that while Starfleet had elected to reject the Krenim weapon, he fears that recent events will cause Starfleet Command to reevaluate that decision.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Several hanging lights where added to the main concourse of ESD along with the graphics/lighting update released with Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts.
