Relocation is a feature that enables player bases to move to another place, usually on a planet from another sector or galaxy.
Players can either relocate to a friend, an alliance member, or a random place.
If one of the first two options is chosen, a list will appear that shows all available targets (targets may become unavailable if they are inactive, or the planet they are in is currently full). Such a relocation will deposit the player's base onto a spot as close as possible to the target.
If the third option is chosen, upon confirmation, the player will be relocated to a random location, on a random planet, in a random, different sector.
Do note that players can only relocate once every 7 days for free; they can alternatively reset the timer for 1,000 Coins (depends on VIP Rank), but can still only relocate once per day using this method.
