The Space City, also known as the Nespis VIII spaceport, was a city constructed in space around the planet Nespis VIII sometime during the dawn of the Galactic Republic.


Space City was an interstellar metropolis that was constructed during the early days of the Republic. As of 10,000 BBY the City was listed by Vicendi as one of the Twenty Wonders of the Galaxy. The city survived the destruction of the Cron Drift, but was largely abandoned by the time of the Clone Wars.[1] The city contained murals depicting Jedi exploits of the Sith War, and contained a Jedi library.

During the Great Jedi Purge, Aidan Bok was killed by Darth Vader on the station.

Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Mammon Hoole and the Arranda children sought refuge on the station with ForceFlow, a HoloNet friend of Tash Arranda's. ForceFlow tricked Hoole and the Arrandas into joining the many artifact prospectors searching for the legendary Jedi library. Tash Arranda located the library, and the spirit of Aidan Bok, who warned her of Gog's artifice. ForceFlow subsequently revealed himself to be Borborygmus Gog, but with the help of Aidan Bok, Tash escaped the Imperial scientist.[2]

It was armed with V-200 ion cannons by the New Republic, during the events surrounding Operation Shadow Hand in the Galactic Civil War.

The spaceport at Nespis VIII is destroyed by the Galaxy Gun.

In 10 ABY, Luke Skywalker and Kam Solusar met there, and Luke brought Kam back to the light side. Following the destruction of Da Soocha V, the New Republic's leadership redeployed to the city, and it became the birthplace of Anakin Solo.[3]

The city was shortly later destroyed by the Reborn Emperor's Galaxy Gun.[1]
