- Commander Winter's position was originally held by Akira Sulu. Since many beginners did not know where the NPC was located, the question "Where's Sulu?" became somewhat iconic in the early days of Star Trek Online. A dialog between two NPCs in front of the Admiral's Office still refers to this. Akira Sulu is now back on ESD
- The original design of Earth Space Dock was controversial from the very beginning. Many fans wanted to see the more familiar shape from the Star Trek movies. It wasn't until the first anniversary of Star Trek Online that this change was actually made.
- Most of the interiors were also re-designed. The most drastic changes were made to Admiral Quinn's office, Club 47 and Starship Requisitions - now featuring a window overlooking docked Odyssey Class, Galaxy Class, Armitage Class, Ambassador Class, Vesta Class, Avenger Class, and Regent Class vessels.
- The original Admiral's office can now be found on Starbase 39.
- The developers had plans for the original Space Dock to be destroyed by invasion forces. As they could not implement such an event in time, they decided to explain the altered appearance with a practical joke by Q. A post on the official website stated that Q decided to reconfigure it in a more familiar shape and to renovate its interiors. The starbase's orbital position was changed as well. Originally it faces the American continents on Earth while it now orbits half way between Europe and North America.
- Earth Spacedock was revamped upon the release of Season 9: A New Accord. Unlike the previous redesign however, this change only affected the interior of the station. The change was showed in-universe during the episode "Surface Tension" which featured the near destruction of Earth Space Dock. Tuvok commented during the episode that "the damage is to Earth Space Dock is extensive, but we will rebuild." That episode is now the only place where the old ESD design can be seen.
- Surface Tension also revealed ESD NPC E'genn to be an Undine. E'genn was thus not present in the Season 9 revamp of ESD.
