6958 Android Base is an Exploriens set released in 1996. It contains a research station, a small spacecraft, a ground vehicle, two astronauts and one android minifigure. It contains 267 pieces.


The Android Base is the second largest Exploriens set and the base. The base opens up - both large screens are attached to hinges and have handles to make the base easier to open up. On one side, outside of the base there is a "pit" with two Explorien "fossils" over which transparent red and blue pieces are placed. Inside of the base there is a computer screen and a control panel. The roof of the base has an angle-able satellite array which moves when the windows are opened.

In addition to the base itself, the set comes with a small spaceship. The spaceship has a control panel for the astronaut. It has a thruster in the back and one on either wing, with an Explorien scanner/weapon that can be removed from it. There is an Exploriens logo plate on the right side of the astronaut and a magnet in front.

The set also includes a mid-sized land vehicle. The vehicle has a steering wheel for the astronaut. It has a laser/scanner on the left side of the astronaut's seat and a light on the left side. In front of it is a light. Behind this portion of the vehicle is a large scanner/telescope/laser. It can rotate in multiple directions, has a steering wheel and room for another astronaut, and has a display panel with stars on it.
