Star Trek Expanded Universe

"It looks like a giant snow globe in space just waiting to break."
Leonard McCoy, 2263 (Star Trek Beyond)

Starbase Yorktown, often simply called Yorktown, was a massive Federation space station in operation during the mid-23rd century, near the Necro Cloud nebula, in the Kelvin timeline. (Star Trek Beyond).

Located near the edge of Federation territory in 2263, it was constructed with the aid of many Federation members, and was built in deep space so as not to show preferential treatment toward any recently-admitted member worlds. The station's crew numbered in the millions, including Starfleet officers, their families and other civilians, representing nearly every planet in the Federation.

Commodore Paris served as commanding officer of Starbase Yorktown in 2263. (Star Trek Beyond)

The station had extensive spacedock and starship construction facilities. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) was built there after her predecessor's destruction at Altamid. (Star Trek Beyond)

Though a matter of speculation, it is possible that a counterpart to this station exists in the Prime universe.
