Overview:

         A common sight during the Star League, system-defense space stations were usually posted along the borders between the member states. However, most of these fortresses were destroyed during the Succession Wars. Still, a few of these technological marvels remain operational. Almost all of these are located deep within the various Successor States. In the last half century, many Inner Sphere manufacturers began to produce new system-defense stations, based on those old Star League relics.
         The Capitol Class system-defense station, produced by Federated-Boeing Interstellar, is a maneuverable, dedicated defense platform. The Capitol carries a number of anti-warship autocannon and laser weapons, which can destroy targets of DropShip size or larger within a few minutes. The Capitolís four-squadron fighter complement leaves it more vulnerable to fighter attacks than the larger Bastion, however.
         The Capitolís low mass allows a tug to quickly reposition the station to make the most effective use of its firepower. In addition, the low mass and small diameter of the Capitol enables it to be transported via JumpShip, making it even easier to move them where needed. Rather than being forced to jump a larger defense satellite in a piece at a time and then assemble it, a Capitol can be built on location at the Federated-Boeing Interstellar's Galax Megaplex and simply jumped to where they are needed. Then the crew need simply power up their grid and the system's new defense network is in place. The basic idea is so good that most major nations have copied the Capitol and build their own versions of it. Few have any major differences though as it is an effective platform already.
         The largest battle the Capitols have ever taken part in was when the Word of Blake attacked Galax itself in 3072. The Word destroyed all of the Capitols, and the Galax Megaplex itself, but the Capitols and their fighter squadrons bled them badly enough that a nearby ComStar fleet was able to drive the Word survivors away. The Megaplex has been rebuilt in the last three decades, along with the Capitols that defend it, and many estimates suggest that defense network is one of the most powerful such networks in the Human Sphere, second only to Terra itself.
