The docking pylons are extensions of the hull of a space station (usually narrow compared to their length) to increase the number of places where a ship might dock with the station.
Nor-class Cardassian space stations have six pylons, usually used to dock larger ships. Three radially-symmetrcal pylons curve above main docking ring at the center of the station and three extend beneath it. The docking pylons are manufactured from twenty-six percent kelindide.
