Behind the scenesEdit
The Derilyn Space Defense Platform was first mentioned in the West End Games Roleplaying Game book Planets of the Galaxy, Volume Three and was featured in the subsequent RPG adventure Operation: Elrood. The Derilyn Platform was also present in the video game Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance, in the mission "Deep Space Strike Evaluation". In the game, the platform has the same appearance than in the West End Games books but with very different characteristics, such as a length of 757 meters.
