Starbase 74 was a Federation Spacedock-type starbase administrated by Starfleet. The base orbited the planet Tarsas III in Sector 001, which was a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. The starbase worked in conjunction with Starfleet Operational Support Services in the routine maintenance and upgrade of systems and replenishing of supplies aboard starships. This starbase was located near the Beta Magellan system. In 2364, the base was commanded by Commander Orfil Quinteros. (TNG: "11001001"; TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

In that year, the USS Enterprise-D docked at Starbase 74 to undergo an upgrade to its computer systems, performed by a group of Bynars. The Enterprise was hijacked by the Bynars shortly after the upgrade began, and taken to Bynaus. The USS Melbourne was one of the three other starships docked at the time, but was unable to pursue due to repairs in progress. (TNG: "11001001")

In that same year, the USS Minnow delivered STFL cargo 045-349374 to this station. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

In 2365, the NCC-30532 was repaired at this starbase. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man", okudagram)



Background informationEdit

In the first draft script of "11001001", this starbase was instead named "Armus 9".

For "11001001", the footage of the USS Enterprise-D on approach to Starbase 74 was stock footage of the original USS Enterprise entering the Earth Spacedock in orbit of Earth. The Enterprise-D was superimposed over the Enterprise.

The interior of Starbase 74 was shown via a matte painting illustrated by Andrew Probert. (Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 2, Issue 12,  p. 46)

Starbase 74 was also seen in A Klingon Challenge, a Star Trek: The Next Generation interactive VCR board game. As with the events of "11001001", the Enterprise-D once again gets hijacked from this starbase, this time in an attempt to start a war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire.
