The Excelsior approaches Deep Space 12

Deep Space 12 was a United Federation of Planets Starfleet starbase active in the late 24th century. In 2399, it was the closest Federation starbase to Nepenthe. (PIC: "Broken Pieces")

The station was built in orbit of Ba'ku as a replacement for the much smaller Outpost 40. DS12 was designed to serve as the command base for all Starfleet activity in the Briar Patch and the surrounding sector. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier)

In 2377, Captain Ian Knapp took over command of Deep Space 12 from Fleet Captain Jennifer Cole. At that time, the station had a complement of approximately 1200 crew members. (HF: "Enemy Unknown, Part Two")
