Description: A galaxy as ancient as ours is filled with inexplicable wonders and secrets lost to the ages. Long before the Galactic Republic held together the scattered worlds of the galaxy, the Rakatan Empire held many systems in thrall. The Rakata were incredibly advanced, but their warlike and aggressive spirit was their undoing. Their crowning achievent was the Star Forge, the ultimate war machine.

        The Star Forge was an enormous space-station/factory that harnessed the power of an entire star. Within its hull was a vast, intricate network of automated machines designed to mass- produce weaponry, droids, and starships. However, it was more than merely a metal construct. Its shadowed cavities were infused with the dark side of Force, endowing it with evil, breathing life.

        The Rakata home world orbited the sun to which the Star Forge was linked. On this planet the Rakata built a temple that housed a generator for a defensive field around the Star Forge. The field disrupted any electronic equipment that approached the Star Forge, causing ships to be caught in the gravitational field of the Rakatan planet. The Unknown World, as it was called, was littered with the wreckage of thousands of years of ships unlucky enough to stumble upon the Star Forge.

        During the ancient wars between the Sith and the Republic, the Sith Lords Darth Revan and Darth Malak followed ancient clues to locate the Star Forge, and tricked the remaining Rakatans to take control of the station. Malak wielded the Forge to produce an unending supply of Sith fighters and other combat material. He used captive Jedi to help fuel his power within the heart of the Star Forge.

        The Republic used a captive Revan to piece together clues as to the Star Forge's location, and eventually discovered the Unknown World. Republic forces attacked en masse, and despite devastating losses, were able to defeat Malak and the Star Forge.

Interesting write-up!
I think i made a write up based off of this years ago!
For 5 years or more, i have accepted the estimates of the Star Forge being about 11 km wide by 28 km tall, discussed here: http://calypso1577.blogspot.com/2013/11/size-of-rakatan-starforge.html

i have recently come across another estimate by Praxis at https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/116040/which-is-bigger-the-star-forge-or-the-death-star, which is pretty good & worth considering.
My Summary;
Width Sphere: 15-20 Hammerhead-class Cruisers (315m), for a Diameter of 4,725-6,300 meters
Width Overall: 14,175-18,900 meters
:
using the 11:28 Width-to-Height ratio (1:2.5454545454545454545454545454545), we get:
Width Overall: 36,081.818181818181818181818181818-48,109.090909090909090909090909091 meters

Which brings us to your interesting figure of 65 km.
Width 25.535714285714285714285714285715 km by Height 65 km
i am curious as to how you came to that figure, which is i must say among the better estimates in my opinion.
And why you settled on it?

I wish I could honestly say. But this page was written pre-2005, so 18+ years ago and how my mind was working on a particular day is now long lost to time.
Going by my usual techniques. I either guesstimate it, going by the sizes of vessels around it (I kind of doubt that I did that in this case as we don't really get any views of ships directly against the Starforge), or found someone else's estimate online (these days usually Wookieepedia, but in 2004'ish, maybe StarWars.com).
Sorry, but too long ago to offer any real insight as to where the figure came from.

Fair enough!
Thanks for the answer!
I'm probably gonna recreate my stats write up for the Star Forge as an exercise, though i might use your write-up as a Star Forge II being built by a Sith in the SWTOR Era...
I think your stats are fairly spot-on!
I am tempted to give the Star Forge Ion Cannons, but you are probably right in that it shouldn't have them.
I'll probably throw Ion Cannons on the Zakuul Star Fortresses, then make a beefed-up version upgraded into a mini-Star Forge...
