Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, also known as Utopia Planitia Starfleet Yards or Utopia Planitia Shipyards, was a key Starfleet vessel construction and design facility in the 24th century. The facility included a number of drydocks and space stations, as well as several large drafting rooms for starship design and planetary facilities on the surface of Mars. Because of its key role in Starfleet’s starship production, Utopia Planitia Shipyards was the construction site of many prominent vessels and the workplace of many prominent engineers and starship designers.

Utopia Planitia Shipyards collaborated with San Francisco Fleet Yards in the design and construction of the Luna class starship, including the USS Resolve that was commissioned on October 22nd, 2375.

In the 2350's Nicole Howard's father worked at Utopia Planitia Shipyards until his alcoholism cost him his job.

In 2357, Kanti MacTavish's parents, a joined Trill and human of Scottish descent both worked as engineers at Utopia Planitia Shipyards the year she was born.

Nator 159 served at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in the Advanced Starship Design Bureau from 2367 until 2380. During this time Nator was a member of both the Luna and Theurgy design and construction teams. Nator received two promotions during this time but was demoted a rank due to the actions of Liam Herrold.

After the Borg attack of 50893.5 (2373), the USS Dawnguard was towed to Utopia Planitia Shipyards for repairs.

Crewman Liam Herrold served as a fighter weapons and ordinance technician at Utopia Planitia Shipyards from 2373 until he was promoted to petty officer third class and transferred to the USS Resolve in 2376. During this time he familiarized himself with the tactical systems of the Peregrine-class and Mark I AC-205 Valkyrie fighters. While serving at Utopia Planitia Shipyards Crewman Herrold specialized in fitting and loading torpedo based weaponry and calibrating their targeting software and developed an interest in the new pulse phaser technology.

In 2377, Lt. JG Azrin Ryn was assigned to Utopia Planitia Shipyards as part of the Hot Fire Test Team, running the final tests on newly built warp engines before the ships were allowed to leave the yards for their shakedowns.

After the Dominion War, Utopia Planitia Shipyards collaborated with the Antares Fleet Yards to construct the Theurgy-class prototype USS Theurgy which was commissioned on October 9th, 2378.

In 2380, Lt. JG Ryn had begun to miss serving on a starship, so she requsted a transfer from the shipyards and was assigned to the USS Theurgy.

Lieutenant (junior grade) Kaylon Jeen served at Utopia Planitia Shipyards for a year from 2379 to 2380. While there he worked to increase the efficiency of the new Powhatan class’s deuterium enrichment hardware, so that a starship on a deep space mission could make more efficient use of any raw deuterium that was collected and processed on board. It had the added advantage of increasing overall deuterium usage as well. For this he was awarded Starfleet's Meritorious Service Medal.
