Located in the Ulysses Corridor near the Charybdis Quasar, Pegasus Station serverd as Vega Sector Fleet Headquarters up until early 2654 when it was destroyed by a Kilrathi sneak attack.

Built on an asteroid world, Pegasus station was made up of "billions of tons of durasteel and ice-slick rock" and was comprised of spacedocks, "towers, gun emplacements, and antennae." One of the key functions of Pegasus station beyond providing docking facilities was to provide Jump Coordinates calculated by the station's NAVCOM to ships returning to Earth. Pegasus' NAVCOM control room also housed a mainframe computer that served as the station's "heart and brain."

Aided by the Pegasus' traiterous commanding officer, Admiral Bill Wilson, the attacking Kilrathi fleet was able to bypass the station's patrols, retrieve the jump coordinates for Earth, and destroy the base. The Kilrathi fleet's advances were thwarted only by the heroic effort of the TCS Tiger Claw and her crew.

Pegasus Station Locations include the NAVCOM control room, Watchtower Three, level seven, level eleven, and level thirteen.
