The Utopia Planitia Shipyards are a Federation starship construction and repair facility in orbit of Mars in the Sol System. Along with the San Francisco Fleet Yards in Earth orbit, the Utopia Planitia Shipyards are one of the major starship design and construction facilities of Starfleet.

The shipyards, destroyed by Synth forces in 2385, have been rebuild prior to 2409 and are now defended by the 3rd fleet.

Missions involved[]

Other involvement[]

  • "Utopia Planitia Report 1": Lieutenant Whetu and Ensign Elyos of Utopia Planitia work to solve design problems with the plasma manifolds of the U.S.S. Hestia's engine assembly.
  • "Utopia Planitia Report 2": Whetu and Elyos discuss ordered upgrades to the Galaxy dreadnought as part of Starfleet's ongoing efforts to remain competitive with the Klingons and Romulans, despite recent alliances.
  • "Utopia Planitia Report 3": Disaster strikes while Whetu and Elyos are conducting an EVA to repair the U.S.S. Defiant. In order to rescue Elyos, Whetu must attempt an extremely dangerous maneuver.
  • "Utopia Planitia: One Big Ship": Whetu and Elyos accompany a team of technicians on an inspection of the U.S.S. Enterprise, which is undergoing a large-scale refit. They meet with the Chief Engineer, Lieutenant Commander Kirayoshi O'Brien, who welcomes them aboard and cautions them that he has made a number of nonstandard modifications to the ship, and that they should consult him if they find anything outside normal specifications. He arranges to meet Whetu over dinner in ten-forward to discuss their progress.
  • "A Gathering of Engineers": At Utopia Planitia, Lieutenant Whetu meets with Tum'Era of the Klingon Empire and James Hunt of the Borg Cooperative to evaluate recent proposals for new Competitive Wargames. While they reject proposals from the Ferengi and Excalbians, they approve three simulations: “Binary Circuit”, from Izar; “Core Assault”, from the Gorn; and “Twin Tribulations”, the Reman entry.
  • "Utopia Planetia: The Mystery of Yard 39": Leaving the Narendra's commissioning party, Whetu finds Elyos studying "weather reports" from the TL-9139 system. Elyos explains that nearly one hundred starships had been abandoned in the system in 2259 when a freak eruption from the local star flooded the area with Baryon radiation. Now, however, it appears that the radiation is abating, and it will be safe to re-enter the system within a few weeks. Elyos is excited by the prospect of recovering the antiquated ships, and applying what they learn from them to modern ship design.

  • The map was remade in 2020 for “Mars, the Bringer of War” and “Synth Wave”. The introduction of Synth Wave, confirming the First Contact Day attack is in STO's timeline, with the remastering of the Klingon 2409 mission implies that the burning on Mars (ongoing in 2399) was ended and the shipyards rebuilt prior to 2409.
