Background information Edit

For more information on this studio model, see TNG studio models. Starbases are usually depicted as planet-based facilities or large space stations capable of supporting and supplying numerous starships. The model for Starbase 47 depicted in "Parallels", however, appears to be the same as that of small Relay Station 47 seen in "Aquiel".

Starbase 47 was also originally listed in an okudagram in the episode "Inheritance". The name of the base did not appear in the remastered episode version of the database. According to the commercial transport database graphic in the original episode, in 2328, David Trotti boarded a transport ship at Gamma Towles II bound for Starbase 47.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 47) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Starbase 47 was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

Apocrypha Edit

Harbinger cover

Starbase 47 in Star Trek: Vanguard

A different Starbase 47 was featured in the Star Trek: Vanguard series of novels. However, following the events of that series, that station was destroyed and disavowed in Federation records. The designation was covertly reassigned to the starbase referenced in "Parallels". The remastered version of Starbase 6 was later inspired by this version of Starbase 47.

Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385") located this original Starbase 47 in the Alpha Quadrant. The base was operational from 2265 to 2268.
