Docking Bay 327, also known as Hangar Bay 327 or simply as Bay 327 was a docking bay aboard the Death Star. The docking bay was overseen by a control room, along with a tractor beam projector. It served as a cargo loading assembly area. An atmosphere containment projector kept the station's internal atmosphere in if the bay doors were opened. It was located directly above a TIE fighter staging area. It was located 400 meters above Detention Block AA-23.
