They are large composite structures purpose-built around a massive hull and containing hydrogen fuel tanks, berthing facilities, hangers, and accommodations.
The name loosely translates as 'Second Junction'.
The first Tiik'sch Waypoint was operational from the beginning of the 26th century. Its construction opened the Sha’a Cluster to jump-1 travel and settlement. The waypoint was destroyed around 3730AD when the Voyagers arrived in the distant Fringe.
A second Tiik'sch Waypoint was constructed in the same location around 5100AD, at the close of the Golden Age. It was a link in the Jump Bridge between the K’shek cluster and the Sha’a Cluster. Operations were reduced and sections of the Waypoint were decommissioned in 5560AD due to its increasingly poor condition and the growing availability of domestically produced jump-2 starships.
A number of sections of the Waypoint were removed and stripped of components in the 5580s. Many of these salvaged parts were incorporated into the Ith-Saa-Ka Waypoint.
