The Shen'Tan-class Space Stations are a class of military starbases used in the Minbari Federation.


Shen'Tan space stations were designed to easily constructed and relocatable space superiority stations. Which were equipped with the firepower to defend an orbital arc against enemy intrusions. The stations also function as mobile bases of operations, docking facilities for small craft, and repair ports for vessels in the Minbari fleet. They can also be used as orbital colonies and are often deployed for that purpose. Most of the planets in the Minbari Federation have these stations in orbit, and so do all three of the Protective planets which are maintained by the Minbari Fleet.
