The Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards was an important Starfleet starship construction and design facility based at the Utopia Planitia area on Mars in the Sol system. The shipyard spans from land-based portions all the way to geosynchronous orbit above the planet. Many important starships were constructed there, including the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), the USS Defiant (NX-74205), and the USS Voyager (NCC-74656).

The yards were made up of a number of separate facilities, including space stations and drydocks. The main complex of the shipyards was Utopia Station One, where a large docking port allowed starships to dock. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)

When the USS Defiant was forced to fire it's warhead module in defence of Deep Space 9 in 2376 the replacement module was delivered directly from Utopia Planitia. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

The Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, or Utopia Planitia Ship Yards, is a key Starfleet starship construction and design facility in at least the 23rd and 24th centuries. It has drydocks and space stations in orbit above the Utopia Planitia region of Mars, as well as ground based facilities in that region of the planet.

The term "Mars Spacedock" — used in Star Fleet Data File, vol. 1 — may be an informal term for the orbital components of the Yards. Or perhaps it is a holdover from a term used by the original colonists late in the 21st century or early in the 22nd.

Beginning in 2358, Captain Jonathan Hofmann served with Starfleet Research and Development at Utopia Planitia. While there, he spearheaded the USS Scandalon and Pendragon-class Development Projects. (Star Trek: Pendragon: "Children of the Burning Heart", "Wings As Eagles", "Restoration")

Lieutenant Commander James Tiberius Kirk was stationed at Utopia Planitia between 2364 and 2366. During this time he was part of the investigation into the destruction of the USS Yamato. (TNG: "Contagion"; Epiphany Trek: "Epiphany")

Pavlo Celcho was assigned to Utopia Planitia from 2364 to 2369. In 2366 he joined the Defiant-class project and was involved mostly in the construction side of the project. (Star Trek: Swiftfire)

Prior to his assignment to Deep Space 9 Benjamin Sisko was stationed at Utopia Planitia, where he assisted in the design work and flight tests of the USS Defiant. (DS9: "Emissary", "The Search, Part I")

In 2367, the USS Prospect spent a few months in repair and being upgraded at the Utopia Planitia facility. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child")

The USS Prospect-A was launched from Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2371. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Home")

Lieutenant Commanders Antonio Ramirez and Ethan Arden were stationed at Utopia Planitia for at least part of the USS Cantabrian's refit between 2369 and 2372. Commander Kwong Ju'an, their supervisor, was also stationed there. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Catalyst, Part One")
