The Wheel is a circular hub-and-spoke style space station. It is the center of an “immunity sphere,” where Imperial ships are not allowed at the station and there is no formal Imperial presence. The Wheel works to have a thriving economy, but there are whispers of high taxes for autonomy from Imperial presence.
This was recently disrupted by the arrival of Stormtroopers in the station on the hunt for Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo and Chewbacca. The hunt for the Rebels resulted in the death of the station’s administrator, Senator Greyshade. The station is now run by a committee of station chiefs.
The Wheel is home to IsoTech among other companies.
