Location of shipyards Edit

It is odd to have strategic Federation shipyards in close proximity to an under-developed world. It is even more odd to have a prominent 23rd-century starship being built so far away from key worlds - then dragged for weeks all the way to Earth, and then launched from there. (Consider the DS9 TM's mention of 50.3 ly between Bajor and the core worlds) - (Torlek, 2219 PST)

Unless the Antares Yards are infact the drydock(and presumably other structures) orbiting Earth which we saw in Generations. To be honest, I don't think even the writers know where they're supposed to be.--Pearse 10:46, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
I don't understand why we are assuming they are stationary, there is no evidence for this. If fact, having multiple locations given on screen would suggest the opposite. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 142.162.236.81 (talk).
ehm, where is the evidence that the Enterprise-B was build in these ship yards?--Shisma Bitte korrigiert mich 17:13, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Where was Bajor sector referenced again? --Alan del Beccio 15:10, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
On the Defiant dedication plaque, apparently. -- Cid Highwind 15:13, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Pretty sure I've said it elsewhere, but we need to get uploads of screencaps of these dedication plaques, even if it only comes from DVD artwork. We need confirmation here. Take the Defiant, it just doesn't make sense. During the time period of its construction, when Sisko was working on it, the Bajor sector was under Cardassian control and Cardassian/Federation relations were not warm enough to allow a fleet yards to be set up in Cardassian space. --OuroborosCobra talk 15:27, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
One would assume that the Antares shipyards are in the Antares system (Alpha Scorpii). However, that is not provable either. If the E-B was built there, then it's very unlikely that they are anywhere near Bajor, which was firmly in the Cardassian sphere of influence at the time. She was named in Earth orbit, but that does not mean she was launched from there, although that would be usual practice.
This is reminiscent of the Antares class problem--Indefatigable 01:44, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
