Dyson Base


Starbase 23, the main Starfleet facility in Sector 595 Alpha, is located in the Candace system, orbiting about Candace II. Starbase 22 itself is a standard Starfleet "spinning top" style station similar to Earth's Spacedock, surrounded by a roughly ovoid restricted area some 25,000 by 15,000 by 10,000 kilometres. This restricted area includes four orbital docking areas, four orbital drydocks and three research stations, with additional facilities on the planetary surface and on the smallest of Candace II's three moons. A number of civilian stations and orbital facilities cluster around the restricted area.


The Candace System has 9 planets, including 1 Class M planet, Candace II, about which the Starbase facility orbits in geosynchronous orbit, and two large gas giants. There are extensive ground-based facilities on Candace II.

Starbase 23 orbital station

As noted above, the Starbase 23 station is a standard Spacedock type orbital station, a large structure capable of housing several starships within its upper hull.
