"I can use aerial landing platforms—we can't risk placing our forces in the path of another attack like this."
Colonel Bergon, to Governor Wilhuff Tarkin after the Battle of Dac City[2]

The aerial landing platform, also referred to as a sky-base[2] or skybase, was a type of starship used by the Galactic Empire that served as a staging area for invading planetary forces. In 18 BBY, they were deployed to Mon Cala to quell an uprising, following the destruction of all surface cities on the planet.[1]

The Empire's successor, the First Order,[3] also had dedicated landing platforms[4] similar in design to the sky-base.[1]
