The Obelisk Border Stations have long served as the Tholian’s first line of defense against outsiders. The Tholians began building the first Obelisk Border Stations in the 2220s to replace the aging Spire Bases erected a century before. These bases served as nodes of a complex early warning detection grid that helped to secure the Assembly’s borders. Often enclosed within an interwoven mesh of Tholian webbing, the Obelisk Border Stations were more often than not concealed from view, their secrecy part of their strength.

Obelisk Border Stations were upgraded to phase concentrators beginning in 2265. This refit was part of a comprehensive upgrade to the stations, including the virtual reconstruction of their central habit cylindar. The upgraded Obelisks continue to serve, although they have been functionally replaced by other, larger starbases. Many older Obelisks serve as civilian trading posts. One such Obelisk is operated on the trade route that links Tholian territories to Cardassian, Bajoran, and numerous other independent merchant interests in the surrounding territories.
