The Star Posts are objects that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a technology invented by Tails and Rotor Walrus to allow travel to other Zones.
The Star Posts were designed to only cross dimensions into the Special Zone. They appear as twin golden star-emblazoned posts that generate a portal between them, and are activated and deactivated by remote control.
A set of Star Posts were first constructed in Freedom HQ. The Star Posts were rigged up originally so that Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails could enter the Special Zone and retrieve a Chaos Emerald to power a machine built to bring former-King Maximillian Acorn out of his coma.
After successfully doing so, they remained idle, until one day Tails noticed the Posts had turned on by themselves, and sent for Rotor to come over and look at them. Both had no idea why they were online for no apparent purpose, until it was found that the Suppression Squad, utilizing a pair of stolen Globe Posts, had created a link to the Star Posts to access and invade Freedom HQ itself. Later, the Freedom Fighters reconstructed the Star Posts in the Science Center for reversing Scourge's invasion.
- The Star Posts are based on an element from the Sonic video games, where they typically served as checkpoints in levels. The game versions could also open portals to the Special Stages.
