Starbase 315 was a Starfleet space station in orbit of BeTau IV commissioned in 2331 orbiting BeTau IV.
The nearby New London Fleet Yards were under her command, and many starship crews stayed aboard the station while there ships were being constructed, repaired or refit.
Type X phaser arrays and four photon torpedo launchers made up the stations armaments, supplemented by auxiliary and docked spacecraft.
Four personnel, ten cargo and four emergency transporters, as well as Jefferies Tubes and turbolifts allowed personnel to move around the station freely.
Captain Thomas Riley was the CO at this time.
The crew of the USS Lionheart assembled aboard the station while their ship was being constructed.
Federation Council Member Pol was imprisoned on the station for nine days after being charged with treason.
A Starfleet armada tasked with rescuing Starfleet and Federation personnel from Heret IV after the Pintarri Domain mined the Heret System and deployed a small fleet within it was coordinated from the starbase.
After the attempted hijacking of the Lionheart, several Maquis were imprisoned aboard while awaiting trial. ("Pall Bearers")
Commander Geltrik was the station's Commander of Auxillary Craft in this year. He was more than happy to sign off on Seff O'Rourke's transfer to the Lionheart. ("Pall Bearers")
By 2385 the starbase's Executive Officer was Commander Kara Evans.
