Starbase Pioneer (SB 519) is a Nor Class Starbase commissioned in 2387 under the command of Captain Carolyne Hall.


Cardassian Era

In 2368, the construction of Jerok Nor which would later become Starbase Pioneer commenced. Dur to the lack of funds and several sabotage attempts, construction was put on hold. In 2372 after a four year hiatus, construction of the inner areas of the station commenced. The Cardassians commissioned the station as a border defense outpost. In order save resources, the Cardassians began to use slave labor bought from the Orion Syndicate as early as the fall of 2372.

After Klingon-Cardassian War (2372-2373), the Cardassian Central Command was replaced by the civilian Depata Council. In order to focus on domestic affairs, the Depata Council cut funding to defense including station construction. Before the Cardassians abandoned the station, they destroyed much of the incomplete docking pylon alpha. One of the guards, Glinn Katar perpetrated the murder of one of the human slaves and sealed him into a bulkhead in the Central Core (Entombed in Metal).

Early Starfleet Era

Late in 2387, as part of a territory cede, the Cardassian government handed over the incomplete Jerok Nor to the Federation. By early 2388, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers (S.C.E.) completed much of the central core of the station and handed over operations to Starfleet. A month later, Starfleet Operations selected personnel to crew the station and selected Captain Carolyne Hall, commanding officer of the U.S.S. Republic as her commander.

In The Beginning

Upon the crew's arrival to Starbase 519, by then given the name Pioneer, the central power core had been activated. Apart from the first few decks, the station was uninhabitable. In order to fill her skeleton crew, Captain Hall pulled in a few favors and slected a group of one hundred cadets. As her executive Officer, Captain Hall selected Lieutenant Ezekiel Anderson, an experienced operations and engineering officer who was serving as the Chief Operations Officer on the U.S.S. Zeus (NCC-69425-A).

Construction of the starbase progressed slowly as materials and manpower were a premium. After a month of construction, Captain Hall received a communication from Rear Admiral James Fletcher, who was recently rescued from the Dominion by the Zeus. The Admiral stated that he would be arriving on the station in a week on an inspection tour and making the station his flagbase. In addition to his arrival, he brought the U.S.S. Independence, a Diligent class starship, which would be attached to the station and a full engineering staff.

During a night off duty, Cadet Mitchell Hall, Captain Hall's nephew, entangled himself in a criminal organization headed by Massimiliano Lombardi which was operating a drug distribution center on the Promenade.

After the trial, the U.S.S. Da Vinci, a S.C.E. ship arrived at the station to assist in the construction. Spearheading this operation was Ensign Terry Dorn, Assistant Chief Operations Officer and Cadet Hall. Upon returning to duty, Cadet Hall was placed in charge of completing section Alpha and Beta of the Habitat ring with Ensign Dorn and the crew of the Da Vinci to construct the other half. Within a few weeks, the entirety of the habitat ring was completed (In The Beginning).
