Khiluum station is a massive private space station of unique construction and capability. It is composed of a central tower ringed by a large octagonal structure. The bottom of the tower houses four docking ports with access to hangar and docking bays. The outer octagonal ring is connected to the central tower by four durasteel arms. Antennas and powerful sensor clusters are mounted on each arm, giving it clear, overlapping sensor coverage in every direction. Khiluum is one of the few stations with good electronic countermeasures (ECM), a result of the construction materials and architecture of the station, making it very difficult to detect. In the rare event of discovery, the station boasts a full range of military-grade weapons for any situation: turbolasers against large vessels, heavy laser cannons for smaller ships, ion cannons, tractor beams, and concussion missile launchers to protect Khiluum and any cargo it holds.
Rumors of Khiluum station have penetrated the collective imagination of the galaxy. Stories of a fabulous personal starbase full of treasures and valuables can be heard in cantinas and smugglers dens, but only a small number know the truth of Khiluum Station. The current owner has done little to dispel or substantiate these rumors. He has never revealed much of what is inside and does not receive guests there. Even without confirmation of what secrets the station holds, criminals and pirates are always on the lookout for the station or any information that could lead to its location.
