I found that asteroid image here: on an image search, though the original version lacked a starbase! Original credit to Maxar/ASU/P. Rubin/NASA/JPL-Caltech.

The Federation Listening Outposts first appeared in Star Trek the Original Series! In Balance of Terror.

Oldarmourer: I'm pretty sure the replicators would get coffee right. It's been shown to have some useful health attributes, the most prominent being that if I get my coffee on time it's good for everyone else's health.

BrickVoid: Zack should definitely get some sleep, because afterwards, he should start brushing up on his training! Like, actually and really learning how things on this ship work! He's got himself into this because he hacked his way onto their roster, it's high time he made up for lost time and started learning things he needed to learn! :D

Panel 1:
Narration Box: 6 hours later... Romulan Neutral Zone Listening Post: Starbase 23

Panel 2:
Helmsman Talia: We've dropped out of warp, sir. Coming up on Starbase 23. Detecting one other Federation ship in orbit.
Lieutenant Zack LeRoux: Right, uh... do the thing... that you do.
Talia: Uh... what?
Zack: You know... the normal thing. When we're at a new planet?
Talia: This is an asteroid, sir.
Zack: Commander Zurkett's shift starts soon, doesn't it?

Panel 3:
Commander Dale Zurkett: *YAWN*
    Sorry. Long night. Should have grabbed a coffee on the way up here.

Panel 4:
Dale: Where are we? Dropped out of warp?
    Oh good. I see the starbase on the viewer.
Zack: Dale! Oh, thank God.

Panel 5:
Dale: Zack? Who put you at the conn? And how long have you been up here?
Zack: Natashia. And... I'm not sure? A couple shifts came and went. But no one would take over for ME.
Dale: Huh. Well, apparently that's another duty roster I need to fix.
    You should hit your bunk... you look wiped out.

Panel 6:
Talia: About the Starbase, sir?
Dale: Right. Assume standard orbit. Open hailing frequencies and broadcast ship registration ID on primary channels.
Zack: Yes, that thing! It was on the tip of my tongue.
Dale: Get some sleep, Lieutenant.
