For the alternate reality counterpart, please see Starbase 1 (alternate reality).
"There were eighty thousand souls on that base... a large contingent of our leadership and at least... three starships... the Klingons are practically in Earth's backyard..."

Starbase 1 was a Federation starbase administered by Starfleet. It was located one hundred au (Twice the distance from Earth to Pluto or 150 000 000 kilometres) from Earth, near a planetary body. In the 2250s, the starbase was home to over 80,000 Federation personnel.

During the Federation-Klingon War, the starbase was attacked and occupied by the House of D'Ghor. The battle went undetected until the USS Discovery arrived and found no lifesigns were to be found of the 80,000 Federation inhabitants, which included a large contingent of leadership. Instead, 274 Klingon lifesigns were detected on the station, as was a painted-on crest of House D'Ghor. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

The established distance from Earth places the starbase in the scattered disc of the Sol system. It may orbit one of the many icy dwarf planets found in this region of space.
Close inspection of the planet shown below the starbase seems to reveal features from Earth, such as Lake Michigan and the Florida peninsula. The latter must likely be regarded as a VFX error.



Starbase 1 appears in the "Age of Discovery" expansion of Star Trek Online. In the mission "Downfall", the player ship is tasked to protect the station during its evacuation in 2257 alongside the USS Ticonderoga and the USS Sebrova, the three starships mentioned by Admiral Cornwell in "The War Without, The War Within". The forces of House D'Ghor are joined in the attack by the House of Mo'Kai matriarch J'Ula, a sister of T'Kuvma. J'Ula uses an experimental mycelium weapon aboard her flagship, the IKS Lukara, to destroy the player ship. Unknowingly, however, she sends both herself and the player to the early 25th century. In accordance with on-screen statements, Starbase 1 is shown to orbit a small planetoid with a moon in the far reaches of the Solar System, the name of which is not provided.
