sank its meager resources into ever-more desperate measures to end the conflict. One of the resulting projects was Hammer Station, a prototype mobile hyperdrive-equipped facility built inside an asteroid around a combined tractor beam and massive gravity cannon. The tractor beam captured nearby asteroids, and the cannon launched the asteroids at near-relativistic speeds at a chosen target. No shield could handle that magnitude of kinetic energy. When positioned over a planet, Hammer Station was capable of devastating entire cities in a single shot.
However, Hammer Station's attacks could not be tempered. The asteroids caused planet-wide dust clouds and groundquakes, rendering entire worlds nearly uninhabitable. After seeing the destruction, the Republic Senate could not authorize its use, even against the Empire, and ordered the project scrapped. The Hammer Station project files were classified and later destroyed in a Senate tower bombing

after the Treaty of Coruscant was signed. Hammer Station was abandoned, its autopilot was set to fly the station into a nearby star. But due to mechanical failure, the station's engines were shut down just short of its final destination, leaving the station drifting in space for several years.

Hammer Station was designed and built within an asteroid. A main hanger bay, used for incoming and outgoing supplies, fed into a series of hallways. While many hallways were fully constructed, antechambers held drills and other mining equipment used to burrow through the asteroid. Several large caverns existed. One such cavern held a large DN-314 Mining Droid.
The security wing was composed of a network of tunnels. Some contained bubble tunnels, which allowed excellent viewing of space. Under the control of the Advozse Hegemony, most Advozsec resided here. In addition, this area was commanded by Vorgan the Volcano and his subordinates, Sawbones Gjonfs and 2R-CH. The security wing led into Section Zero.
Section Zero held the gravity cannon used to launch asteroids. Battlelord
