Located near the edge of Federation space in 2263 the base housed millions of people from all Federation worlds. It was built with the idea of not showing favoritism to any single Federation world, by being built in deep space instead of on a planet.
The base consisted of a large transparent globe with its own internal atmosphere and a number of pylons that held buildings, parks, squares, a public transporter network, and support facilities. The station had a large space dock capable of easily holding ships as large as Constitution-class vessels.
Yorktown Station also contained a shipyard capable of building vessels, including Constitution class ships. One such vessel was the USS Enterprise-A, which was launched in 2263 following the destruction of the previous USS Enterprise. (TOS movie: Beyond)
