- "The Colossus? I-I've heard stories about this place. It's—it's a hangout for star pilots. Ex-Empire. Ex-Rebellion, pirates—anybody who wants to go fast."
- ―Kazuda Xiono
The Colossus was a mobile aircraft refueling station on the ocean planet Castilon in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. It was an old super tanker fuel depot built during the Imperial Era. It was operated by Captain Imanuel Doza, who resided in the station's upper levels with his daughter Torra. The Colossus was defended by a squadron of skilled pilots, known as Ace Squadron, and was also home to many other individuals such as Jarek Yeager, who owned a repair shop on the station. By 34 ABY, the Colossus had not moved since at least 14 ABY, twenty years before.
During the New Republic's cold war with the First Order, Kazuda Xiono was sent to the station as a spy by Resistance Commander Poe Dameron. In the same year, the First Order began orchestrating pirate attacks against the station, wishing to use it as a staging area for the upcoming war. Commander Pyre, who had come up with the idea, figured that enough pirate attacks would force Captain Doza to request that the Order take over the station. Eventually, the First Order had the pirates kidnap Doza's daughter Torra so their own forces could "rescue" her, allowing them onto the station. During the ensuing occupation, as Xiono attempted to undermine the First Order's authority, he was eventually unmasked as a spy. Xiono, Torra, Yeager and Neeku Vozo, working with Captain Doza, rediscovered and reactivated the Colossus' hyperdrive to leave Castilon and escape the First Order, after fighting a pitched battle to leave the planet's atmosphere.
