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 Republic and Imperial fleets. The Republic Fleet Stronghold (properly called the Carrick Station Penthouse in-game), has only four rooms, and is much smaller than the other strongholds, but still has six hundred hooks available for decorating and cool view of space and of the VIP lounge of the Fleet.

How to get the Carrick Station Penthouse
To unlock access to the Republic 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 Republic or Imperial character, and you can purchase and unlock both the Republic and Imperial 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 Carrick Station strongholds to get decorating ideas, you can only view the Stronghold Directory on the Republic side. The directory is located in the Supplies section of the Republic Fleet, near the Galactic Seasons vendor, not with the other stronghold directories.
An esteemed piece of real estate, the Carrick Station Penthouse is reserved for those who have demonstratd and exemplified the greatness of the Galactic Republic. This Penthouse provides incredible views of both the Station and the Republic Fleet.
During the final months of the Great Galactic War, the Republic became desperate to develop a new hyperroute for supplies in their conflict with the aggressive Sith Empire. To facilitate their new route, a nearly forgotten supply base known as Outpost 22 was returned to full service. By the time the Treaty of Coruscant was signed and the war had ended, Outpost 22 had become such a major hub of activity as to be as indispensable a gathering place as the capital world itself. The base was given a new and significant identity–Carrick Station–in dedication to Zayne Carrick, a once-unassuming Padawan who rose to a position of great importance during the Mandalorian Wars.
Republic Fleet Stronghold Full Tour & Review
Carrick Station Penthouse
This modest penthouse apartment is located in the upper levels of Carrick Station, the Republic’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 Carrick Station and the other overlooks space, ships, and Carrick Station’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 Vaiken Spacedock stronghold, but has a different color scheme – the windows are yellow-tinted, the floors are a warm gray, and there are dark red and yellow highlights around the stronghold, to match the Republic Fleet’s color scheme.
VIP Lounge Overlook Room
You can put decorations on the window!
Space Fleet Overlook Room
It’s very dark, here’s what it looks lit up.
Hallway leading to Octagon room
In the hallway there is a grate that looks like there is space under it… but there is nothing there.
You can not see the Penthouse in the normal Fleet – it’s just a blank wall.
