The Golan III Space Defense NovaGun, also known simply as the Golan III, was the third space station in Golan Arms' series of space defense platforms.


Built as a more powerful successor to the dangerous Golan II, the Golan III was larger and arguably better armed than an Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Just as the Golan II had stronger deflector shields and a sturdier hull than the Golan I, the Golan III had shields at least 25% stronger than the Golan II and a similar increase in hull durability.

They were armed with 50 turbolaser batteries, 24 proton torpedo launchers, and 15 tractor beam projectors, and had a hangar capable of holding at least 12 starfighters.


Golan III platforms were assigned to the most valuable locations in the galaxy. One notable use of Golan III platforms was their deployment as scanner stations in the Byss Security Zone, working in concert with Allegiance-class battlecruisers.

Multiple Golan IIIs formed part of the Coruscant's Defense Fleet during the Imperial Period. Many of them would be destroyed when the New Republic took Coruscant from Director Ysanne Isard.

They were also stationed above many other valuable worlds, such as Zhar system, Coruscant and Muunilinst, remaining in use through the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War and beyond.
