A space station was an artificial stationary structure in space, often built to support life. Such stations could serve many purposes, including research, defense and starship maintenance and repair.
A station was usually a base of operations for any given nation, corporation, and civilian entities. Space stations were the backbone of interstellar trade and economy as well as for orbital industry. (HH2)
Entertainment station Edit
A fort was a large station used for defense of a star system, a planet, or a wormhole terminus. A fort's weapons-to-mass ratio was extremely high, and the installations were not hyper-capable. A fort had a 360° sidewall "bubble" for protection. A small fort's mass was usually in the range of sixteen million tons. (HH1)
A laser platform was a station filled with numerous different types of laser turrets and missile launchers. They were usually built to assist in the defense of a fort. (HH1)
Orbital farm Edit
Orbital farms were rather primitive space stations with huge artificial planes of clean soil for the production of food.
