A spacedock is a facility capable of docking starships for maintenance. Most spacefaring species had some type of spacedock, and they thus varied widely in design.

Within the United Federation of Planets, and its immediate predecessors, a spacedock most often took the form of a free-standing, orbital, single-starship-sized "cage". This form of spacedock was virtually synonymous with the word drydock.

Some spacedocks, however, were part of starbases and outposts, and allowed for more secure repairs in a totally enclosed, multi-functional facility.

  • The USS Excelsior enjoyed at least the final stages of its construction in such a facility orbiting Earth.

In 2373, Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force attacked and destroyed the Cardassian spacedocks on Torros III.
