Orbital Defense Platforms have been a significant factor in protecting resources for as long as mankind has been in
The stationary Zues class was developed at the end of the Imperium to protect high tech worlds and
strategic assets, like Depot systems.  Thirty DPs were deployed to Corridor's Depot Prime as an element of
the upgrades prior to the Rebellion. The use of Meson Guns vs PAWs allowed decreasing the size and cost.
But worlds that are concerned about them being used for the wrong reasons prefer the PAWs.
