Star Wars: The Old Republic players have been requesting a smaller apartment stronghold for quite a while now, and the developers have responded with two new Penthouse strongholds located on the Imperial and Republic fleets. The Imperial Fleet Stronghold (properly called the Vaiken Spacedock Penthouse in-game), has only four rooms, and is much smaller than the other strongholds, but still has four hundred hooks available for decorating and cool view of space and of the VIP lounge of the Imperial Fleet.

How to get the Vaiken Spacedock Penthouse
To unlock access to the Imperial Penthouse, you will need to purchase a “deed” items from the Galactic Seasons vendor. The deed costs 8 Galactic Seasons tokens.
x8 Galactic Seasons Tokens
Galactic Seasons is a limited-time event that lasts 5-months where you complete objectives to earn rewards, and one of the rewards are Galactic Seasons tokens that can be spent on various cosmetic rewards from a vendor. Over the course of a season, Subscribers can earn up to 15 tokens per season, and free-to-play/preferred players can earn up to 5 per season. These Galactic Seasons tokens do stack up over time and do carry over between seasons, so you can earn this stronghold or any other Galactic Seasons objectives over time. You can purchase this stronghold on either faction, and go to your purchased stronghold on either an Imperial or Republic character, and you can purchase and unlock both the Imperial and Republic Penthouses to own both at once.
This Deed and the use of it transfers ownership of one Carrick Station Penthouse from its former owner (the grantor) to the new owner (the grantee) as defined by statute of the Sith Empire. This deed is non-transferable to those outside of your Legacy. This deed may not be resold. (You can’t buy or sell the stronghold deed on the GTN or give it to a friend, as it is legacy-bound.)
If you want to visit other players’ publicly listed Vaiken Spacedock strongholds to get decorating ideas, you can only view the Stronghold Directory on the Imperial side. The directory is located in the Supplies section of the Imperial Fleet, near the Galactic Seasons vendor, not with the other stronghold directories.
An elite piece of real estate, the Vaiken Spacedock Penthouse is reserved for those who have demonstrated and exemplified the power and dominance of the Sith Empire. This Penthouse provides a looming view of of the Spacedock and Imperial Fleet.
Of the many stations peppered throughout Imperial space, none rival the size or importance of Vaiken Spacedock. Vaiken is the true hub of the Imperial fleet, a logistical nucleus responsible for the vast majority of the Empire’s military operations. In fact, the base has become so vital that it has been named after the Sith Empire’s first Grand Moff, Odile Vaiken. Despite its usual complement of several dozen capital warships, Vaiken Spacedock is also one of the Empire’s most well-guarded locales. Vaiken is commonly upgraded to the latest in shielding technology and detection sensors, and its vast arsenal has a combined destructive power that could potentially lay waste to a small moon.

Vaiken Spacedock Penthouse
This modest penthouse apartment is located in the upper levels of Vaiken Spacedock, the Empire’s primary space station.
Your initial unlock gets you a small entry area, a main room, two windowed rooms and a large octagonal room. There are no additional rooms to pay to unlock. One of the windowed rooms overlooks the VIP Lounge on Vaiken Spacedock and the other overlooks space, ships, and Vaiken Spacedock’s exterior. You will not be able to see other players running around on the Fleet if you look down out the window, this area is just a copy of the fleet. You do hear cantina music in the VIP-facing room. The stronghold has 400 hooks, but can only hold 30 players at a time. This stronghold has roughly the same layout as the Carrick Station stronghold, but has a different color scheme – the windows are aqua-blue-tinted, the floors and walls are a dark gray-blue, and there are white, red and orange highlights around the stronghold to match the color scheme on the Imperial Fleet.

In the hallway there is a grate that looks like there is space under it… but there is nothing down there, it’s not a secret room.
