Composition

Starbase 7 is the only starbase in the Andor sector, located at a class K planet which orbits the white dwarf star CJ-884. The base has a planetary outpost as well as space station facilities, which included a free-floating orbital space station, as well as a space station that existed incorporated into the surface of an asteroid. Starbase 7 is the closest starbase to Andoria and is the official headquarters of the Starfleet 7th Fleet. It is also very close to the star systems Ejul Thelni and Alpha Centauri. Starbase 7 serves as a supply base for ships patrolling the Romulan Star Empire' border. (TOS novel: Crisis on Centaurus; ST roleplay module: The Andorians: Among the Clans)

This base was designated as the headquarters for Starfleet Intelligence's intelligence sector 1, with an activities unit monitoring internal affairs. Bases that were under the command of Starbase 7's intelligence staff included those located at Alpha Centauri, Andor, Bardex III, Cerberus, Dadax, Darius III, Edos, Hurlin, Izar, Kadacohr, Koromond, MAO III, Maximilian, Tellar and Earth, as well as stations at Starbase 1, Starbase 4, Starbase 5, Starbase 6, Starbase 8, Starbase 16 and Starbase 24. Starbase 7 was the control base of Interstellar Import-Export, a Starfleet Intelligence front organization based in Flaxis on Alpha Centauri VII. This base also was the home assignment of the 23rd century's Chief of Starfleet Intelligence Dexter O. Armbruster. (RPG reference: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

Starbase 7 was the home of a Federation Embassy, where the Federation Diplomatic Corps could organize their activities in the vicinity. (TOS novel: Death's Angel)

History

By the 2250s, the small asteroid installation had grew into a large base spreading across the whole surface of the asteroid. Including extensive medical and starship repair facilities.

In 2255, the USS Farragut docked at Starbase 7 to undergo repairs following a running battle with six pirate vessels. Medical treatment was also given to several personnel including Ensign James T. Kirk. (TOS novel: Crisis on Centaurus)

In 2256, Commander Brady of Starbase 7 ordered the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain Christopher Pike, to divert from their star-mapping mission in the Carrollia sector to Aronnia to mediate a diplomatic dispute. (TCT novel: Where Sea Meets Sky)

In 2267, the Enterprise stopped off at Starbase 7 to collect new crewmembers shortly before their diplomatic mission to the planet Nador. (TOS novel: Gemini)

In 2268, the USS Konkordium and the USS Dominion docked at Starbase 7 after undergoing wargames. (TOS novel: The Klingon Gambit)

By the late 2260s, Starbase 7 was under the command of Admiral Golav Mahth who often had Andorian Defense Force Captains serve as station liaisons for the nearby Andoria. ("The Andorians: Among the Clans")

In 2269, the Enterprise docked at Starbase 7 for repairs and shore leave following relief operations of Centaurus following a terrorist attack on New Athens. (TOS novel: Crisis on Centaurus)

Also in 2269, Ambassador Sarek temporarily occupied an office on Starbase 7 while using the Embassy facility to stage a meeting with the Romulans on the Romulan Neutral Zone border of Romulan space. Eight Federation starships visited the base, with each transporting ambassadors on a course to Detente Station 1. The Enterprise ferried a group of about a dozen ambassador, including Sarek from Starbase 7 to the Neutral Zone station. (TOS novel: Death's Angel)

In 2273, the Enterprise proceeded to Starbase 7 after resolving a diplomatic incident concerning the Dohlman of Elas on the planet Rakatan. (TOS novel: Firestorm)

Background

The Andorians: Among the Clans seems to contradict the statement that Starbase 7 is an asteroid, and comic book appearances have shown this base as a space station. This incongruity has been resolved here by theorizing the asteroid station and other space station facilities all coexist in the vicinity of the planetary base listed in Among the Clans.

Starbase 7 was a United Federation of Planets Starfleet facility active from the 22nd to at least the 24th centuries.

Built in the 2150s (TOS novel: Crisis on Centaurus), the base was located near Sol and 61 Cygni. (Orion Press: "Scotty's Vacation")

Admiral B. Culver was commanding officer of Starbase 7 around stardate 8418.09, with a Captain R. Johnson serving as Culver's adjutant. The Starfleet Third Fleet, under Admiral Foy, was based here at the time. (Research Anthology: "Genesis Project System 7: Survey Scans and Reports")

Following the attack by an energy creature on Starbase 29 in 2294, the Starfleet Seventh Fleet was relocated to the "inner" Federation, with Starbase 7 becoming the Seventh's new command base. Commodore Threll A'von, an Andorian, was the base's commanding officer. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Aftermath", "The Road Goes Ever On", "Back in the Saddle Again")

Per "Aftermath", Starbases 7 and 29 are a day's travel apart, presumably at about warp factor 6 or 7.

Starbase 7 was also the command base for the Seventh Fleet in the 2370s. (Star Trek: Challenger Chronicles)

It is not known if the starbase was the Seventh Fleet's command base continuously from 2294 to the 2370s.
