(covers information from an alternate timeline)
In an alternate quantum reality visited by Worf in 2370, Starbase 47 was responsible for new starship developments and the object of covert surveillance by the Cardassian Union, who had reprogrammed the Argus Array to observe this, as well as Deep Space 5, the Iadara colony and the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. (TNG: "Parallels")
Background information Edit
For more information on this studio model, see TNG studio models. Starbases are usually depicted as planet-based facilities or large space stations capable of supporting and supplying numerous starships. The model for Starbase 47 depicted in "Parallels", however, appears to be the same as that of small Relay Station 47 seen in TNG: "Aquiel".
Starbase 47 was also originally listed in an okudagram in the episode TNG: "Inheritance". The name of the base did not appear in the remastered episode version of the database. According to the commercial transport database graphic in the original episode, in 2328, David Trotti boarded a transport ship at Gamma Towles II bound for Starbase 47.
