Star Trek Online is getting ready to launch Season 6: Under Siege , and one of the new features that will be come available is "player starbases". For the first time in the game, players will be able to build and personalized their own starbases, and fleets will be able to band together to build a virtual home.
Starbases come in 5 Tiers so the base gets bigger over time. It's actually 5 bases and each base needs to feel like an extension of the previous one. The first tier is a tiny little base but it's your tiny little base. Over time the Fleet upgrades the base and it grows and grows until finally at tier 5 it is big and majestic. Not too big and majestic though, so player fleets don't actually out do Starfleet.
The developers wanted starbases to be more than just simply a base floating in the blackness of space, they wanted them to feel like a hub of activity that is constantly growing and evolving. So around the main station there are other science stations with comm arrays, fabrication facitlities, shipyards and ship traffic. These all get larger and more complex over time as well.
