This Luna Base is a base in the orbit of Earth moon. In terms of design, it is an artificial planetary ring, which allows massive interstellar craft dock with it easily. It's safe to assume that it is the Federation Navy's largest base, strategically located in proximity to Earth and massive in capacity.

The Lunar Base can house countless ships of almost any size, including Corvette Transports, Dropships, DR-8 Skyhooks, F-76 Thunderbolt, and possibly an Admiral's Boat. The defence mechanisms of the Lunar Base are Missile defence turrets and other small turrets.


  • It is unknown how long it took to construct the base in the film universe. Seeing how it encircles the entire Moon, it must have taken decades to complete. A fairly basic approximation gives the length of 6400 km of a ring suspended 300 km above the surface.
