the third station is Belsavis...
no real information, just a guess from all the secrets contained within it, and that the planet appears to some people as a giant machine

That is actually quite plausible and it does make sense. But so far it doesn't have a function except as a prison unless ive missed something there???

Rakata came after the Celestials.

plus, the Celestials [at least as far as we know] never tried to take over the Galaxy or really screw with cultures [short of creating the Corellia System] whereas the Rakata & the Infinite Empire conquered part/most of the Galaxy and FUBAR'ed Tatooine turning it from looking like Naboo (and similar type planets) to a never ending desert along with spliting the inhabitants into half Sandpeople and the other half into Jawas.

It's a reference to centerpoint station. Centerpoint station grappkled entire planets and even suns into a habitable orbit, thus xeno-forming them.

could possibly be a reference to the Maw.

There's also the suggestion that the Killik's built it. But the Kind.... arn't the most reliable when it comes to things.

this does make sense. during the sith inq story you meet a machine called 'the mother' that creates new species. the machine admits to making the twi'lek, zabrak, and many others. the rakata used the mother to try and find a way to cure their force illness.

From what I remember from KotOR 1. When you find the Star Map on Kashyyyk, the interface computer tells you that it was placed there to monitor the terraforming of the planet (Or something like that, it's been a while since I played K1) I wonder if this 3rd station is the same station. And I've had this weird theory that the space station (AKA The Mother) in the "Riptide" novel was an early incarnation or prototype of the Star Forge built by the Rakata.

Could be that the Centerpoint station within the Corellian Sector would be station number 3.
Uses the force to operate and can only be activated by a Force user.
The EU isnt clear on that, but many things point into that direction.

It's not Centerpoint Station.

In FOTJ, Centerpoint is revealed to have been built by The Father, Son, and Daughter, to contain Abeloth.
