Currently, the term starport is used inconsistently throughout the wiki, but usually as if its definition is:

However, in Elite Dangerous: Horizons we will be getting surface starports on planets, which are inconsistent with this definition. Should we change the usage of terms throughout the wiki to make starport consistently a more generic term, such as:

  • Starport: A structure with Landing Pads, where ships can dock and access various services.

This definition would include large stations with docking bays, outposts, and planetary installations.

An example of what I am talking about is the page Orbis. It opens with the line:

First introduced in Frontier: Elite II, the giant Orbis starport is based upon the Stanford torus design.

If the wiki's use of "Starport" moved away from meaning large space station, it could instead read:

First introduced in Frontier: Elite II, the giant Orbis station is based upon the Stanford torus design.
