"That's no moon. It's a space station."
Obi-Wan Kenobi, upon seeing the Death Star — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

The space station known as the Death Star

Space stations were artificial structures in space.[2] Some, like the Citadel of Rur[3] and Faos Station,[4] were stationed independently in deep space or even in nebulas.[5] Many stations were capable of being in orbit of astronomical objects, such as the Sorca Retreat.[6]

Stations commissioned for military use often had emplacements of defensive mechanisms consisting of technologies like turbolaser batteries. Some stations could mobilize and navigate through both realspace and hyperspace.[1]

The DS-1 Death Star Mobile Battle Station[7] and the DS-2 Death Star II Mobile Battle Station[8] were constructed by the command of Darth Sidious, publicly known as the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic and later Emperor of the Galactic Empire.[7] The two Death Stars were also classified as battle stations, a type of space station.[1][8]

During or after 34 ABY,[9] the Safari droid M1-RE, a specialized member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, was stationed on the Youngling Care Space Station where she cared for and studied several species of younglings.[10] The station was very large and had several rooms,[11] including one that was designed to resemble the Forest Moon of Endor.[12]
