Deep Space 9, with all six docking pylons visible.

The docking pylons are extensions of the hull of a space station (usually narrow compared to their length) to increase the number of places where a ship might dock with the station.

Nor-class Cardassian space stations have six pylons, usually used to dock larger ships. Three radially-symmetrcal pylons curve above main docking ring at the center of the station and three extend beneath it. The docking pylons are manufactured from twenty-six percent kelindide. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

Watchtower-class Federation space stations have six pylons wich extend radially from the "shaft" of the station.
