A Ring is a type of very large space structure. Whereas an Orbital is a roughly planet-scale object in orbit around a star, a Ring encircles a star at its center.

One Ring was destroyed during the Idiran-Culture War.[1]

At least one Ring was administered by the Dra'Azon a few centuries after the Idiran-Culture War.[2]
