Well, not exactly, but I am
rather struck by the aesthetic and operational similarities between Andrew's ST:TMP dry dock structure

for a "Space Logistics Base" to assemble and support CisLunar transfer vehicles...
Eh, there are only very vague similarities to me... like being a structure in space that supports spacecraft.
