Enterprise D at Earth Spacedock

I'm trying to figure out which episode the Enterprise visits the space dock as shown here:

Thanks!

Its from 11001001, but its a not representing the space dock orbiting earth like it did in TSFS. In the episode its Starbase 74 orbiting Tarsas III.

It's either Starbase 74 from 11001001, Lya Station Alpha from Ensign Ro or Starbase 133 from Remember Me. The Enterprise-D visted a spacedock of another sort for repair after The Best of Both Worlds but not the type you've pictured.

The different uses of the original footage are listen here:

Hope that helps!

Re: Enterprise D at Earth Spacedock

Thanks everyone, it looks like it's the shot from 11001001. The moon through me off.

Well not to be picky but it can't really "look like" the shot from 11001001 any more than the identical shots from the other episodes it was shown in can it?

Re: Enterprise D at Earth Spacedock

Actually it can. Star Trek III had the clip in a much wider aspect ratio, and with the original Enterprise, which rules the movie out. Then, since Remember Me and Ensign Ro have not yet been released on Blu-Ray, and thus wouldn't have the picture quality or pillar-boxing that the screencap here has. Therefore it can only be 11001001.

Isn't that station supposed to be much bigger than the Spacedock? A new class of Starbase, absolutelly massive.

It would have to be to match the scale of the E-D.

Re: Enterprise D at Earth Spacedock

I think I remember reading that the shot for 11001001 showing the Ent-D was basically the TSFS clip with the Ent-D instead of the 1701.

Re: Enterprise D at Earth Spacedock

They could do with one of those spacedock sized stations at the mouth to the Bajoran wormhole.

They used the exact same clip in Ensign Ro and Remember Me as mentioned before.

Yup one of those things next to the wormhole would have deterred the dominion but I would imagine it would take decades to build? Would have been cool to see starfleet make a start on building it during the series and we can see it begin to take shape

The interesting thing is that if they made a new station based show today then perhaps with cheap cgi and lots of bluescreen it could have been one of the mushroom type starbases !

Or perhaps something like this, which Doug Drexler dreamed up.
