''Space Station'' is a {{Physical Pinball Table|s}} released by Creator/WilliamsElectronics in 1987. It was designed by Creator/BarryOursler, with artwork by Tim Elliott, sounds by Brian Schmidt, and software by Creator/EdBoon.

''Space Station'' is widely considered to be an unofficial sequel to ''Pinball/SpaceShuttle''. It features a second set of "STATION" spot targets that scores its own independently-cycling value and builds upon the Stop-N-Score feature. ''Station'' also features a mini upper playfield above the pop bumpers and a rotating space station toy used to direct balls towards the locks on either side of the playfield.

A digital version of ''Space Station'' is featured on [[VideoGame/ZenPinball Pinball FX3]] as part of ''Volume 6''.
