The station will be located in orbit around the already existing planet Vulcan, in system LHS-3006. Being named “Nimoy Station”, executive producer Michael Brookes announced that the station will be added with the incoming 1.2 update.

Players have also expressed other small signs of respect to be added to the station itself. One players asked that the text around the entrance say “live long and prosper” as well. Nevertheless, you can expect many commanders to be making the pilgrimage once the update is released.
