Star Base One is noted as being "one hundred AU from Earth". When Discovery comes out of warp next to Star Base One, the station is orbiting an Earth-sized planet.

The planet near Star Base One has an atmosphere (which should have frozen out) and has bright sunlight shining on it. See more
Did you ever think, when you signed up for Starfleet, that you'd be forced to see war and death?

I don't think I did. Not really. Does that make me naive?
It makes you optimistic.
