Background (wookieepedia)
Golan3 prev

source unknown

Built as a more powerful successor to the dangerous Golan II, the Golan III was larger and arguably better armed than an Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Just as the Golan II had stronger deflector shields and a sturdier hull than the Golan I, the Golan III had shields at least 25% stronger than the Golan II and a similar increase in hull durability.

Golan III platforms were assigned to the most valuable locations in the galaxy. One notable use of Golan III platforms was their deployment as scanner stations in the Byss Security Zone, working in concert with Allegiance-class battlecruisers.

They were also stationed above many other valuable worlds, such as Zhar system, Coruscant and Muunilinst, remaining in use through the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War and beyond.

1 - Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the station out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The station itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.

1B - Destroying the Command Tower will effectively render the station inoperative and set the station effectively adrift in space though the main hull will still have auxiliary power, life support and minimal maneuvering on thrusters.

2 - Destroying the sensors and communications will deprive the station of all forms of long range communications, sensors and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a starfighter at best. The station can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half.

3 - Destroying the hangers will greatly impair the carrier's ability to deploy and recover aircraft. Under normal operations the station can launch or recover up to 4 starfighters or 2 shuttles per melee. If the main hanger is destroyed this number drops to 1 starfighter or shuttle. If both hangers are destroyed the carrier cannot deploy any craft until at least one hanger is repaired.

4 - Depleting the MDC of the all thrusters will force the station adrift in space.

5 - Shields regenerate at 200 mdc per melee. Only if a genereator is damaged will the ability for shields to regenerate be hampered in any way.
