The Space Station is a playable zombie class in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville as an alternate form for the Space Cadet. It is a PvZ BfN Defend Class Icon.png Defend class who specializes in powerful yet slow attacks.

The Space Station is also capable of carrying up to three Space Station Passengers which act as mounted turrets, increasing the amount of damage being dealt at time, albeit independently from the Space Station. Said Space Station Passengers can also shield the Space Station, protecting the Space Station from damage and allowing the Space Station to safely set up powerful attacks. 


Space Stations bring the big weapons. Crater Maker is an extremely powerful attack, but hard to setup without allies or shields.

Primary Weapon

Burst-fire space projectile.

In-game description

Manage your health, not only because you are a big target, but also because if you are vanquished, you take everyone with you. When a space station is destroyed, not only is the Space Cadet who created the station vanquished, but also the passengers in it as well, to make matters worse, the vanquishes will be considered unrevivable. Always have at least 1 or 2 passengers, as their Asteroid Shields will provide protection. Use Space Force if their shields are destroyed or when you know when they used Hands-On Torpedo as their cooldowns will take a while. You could also use Space Force to ambush the enemy with countless amounts of bullets and damage. When using Crater Maker, make sure that you are in a wide open area with no short doorways, as if the enemy enters a small doorway when you are using Crater Maker, the size of that doorway will prevent you from advancing to the enemy. If things get very dire and results in you having a low health bar, it is best preferred to use Escape Pod to transform back to a Space Cadet, saving everyone from being vanquished at once.


Don't be fooled by a Space Station with no passengers, as it can still do big damage to you and your team. Always avoid the Crater Maker beam by sprinting away, also be aware that the Space Station can use it again by using Space Force to make the ability recharge quickly. If the Space Station has passengers, always be on the look out nearby for Hands-On Torpedo, as it can deal huge direct damage and can come from anywhere, even if the player isn't looking.
