I don't think so at all. The station manager's office can only receive two visitors at a time beaming in, already three visitors will be a 'problem'.

Unlike the Enterprise the station does not appear to have the capability to warp space and take in interstellar matter as fuel or to simply be refueled like a starship at the earliest next convenience - at a station or starbase!

Thus, most likely, you have to bring everything to the station (compare to an oil drilling platform) and energy saving should be a major issue where the corporeal transfer of people to the station appears to be the favorable means, IMHO.

Nice link and visualization. Thanks
