First thought:

  Ooo!  Bubba dropped himself into a stasis box.  I wonder what
happens if I drop it into the sun?  Oh, I can't get the box out of the 
station?  I wonder what happens when I drop the whole station into the 
sun?  If I nose my ship against the station and just push for long
enough... 

Mechanical address: All ships approaching station are instantly docked
-- you can't "push" a station.  But what happens if I push an asteroid 
into a station?
