Obviously the death star had to be the first one on this list. Why? Because its the most famous. So where do I start to talk about this thing?
The Deathstar is MASSIVE, I don't need to tell you that. Its the size of a small moon and is lined with hundreds of anti-aircraft and ship to ship weapons. Despite sporting an impressive array of arms it all pales in comparison to the Deathstars main weapon, The Superlaser. The Super Laser is capable of blowing up a planet in one shot, but it can also attack ships, as demonstrated in the Battle of Endor where it took out multiple Rebel Capital Ships, which is like firing a nuke a Nuke at your house cause you found a spider on the wall. (though that is understandable)
The Deathstar also had dry dock facilities built into it for the maintenance and repair of The Empires Numerous Star Destroyers, and Hangers for its Tie Fighter squadrons and ground support vessels. Even though it was so massive the Deathstar could also move, it wasn't as fast as most other ships but it could still reach its locations in a reasonable amount of time.
Fortunately both of the Deathstars featured in the Star Wars movies were destroyed by the Rebel Alliance. Despite being a devastating weapon and a "Technological Terror", the Deathstar is easily the Coolest Space Station on this list.
Spacedock or Spacedock 1 one Was first seen in Star Trek 2009. All the ships in the fleet sent to Vulcan were docked here. Because Star Trek 2009 took place in an alternate timeline this starbase was radically different from its Prime timeline counterpart. Instead of being a Massive Mushroom shaped station where the top was actually a massive indoor hanger, this starbase went for a different feel. It featured a large central doom with arms extending outwards that were attached to Docking rings.
Not much is known about this Station as it literally was on screen for about 5 seconds. We never even got to see the inside of it. Starbase One looked really cool, hopefully in the new movie we get to see more of it.
Ragnar Anchorage is a Colonial Munitions Depot, suspended in the upper atmosphere of a Gas Giant. (the gas Giant is also known as Ragnar.) I'm not sure when it was built, but I assume it was during the first cylon war. By the time of the Fall of the Colonies Ragnar was still active.
When Adama got word of the renewed Cylon Attacks against the Colonies, he jumped Galactica to the Station to Re-arm the Old Battlestar and get it into the fight. The Station has the ability to Dock with a Battlestar and allow for easy transport for the munitions aboard. The interior of the Station is Rusty dark and damp, there are a bunch of small corridors and old piping lines the walls and ceilings.
Once Rearmed Adama makes the decision to abandon the Colonies and use Galactica to Protect the civilian Fleet. Its here that the Battle of Ragnar Anchorage takes place.
