The Detention Level was a level on the Death Star that held Detention Block AA-23, which in turn held Cell 2187, where Princess Leia Organa was imprisoned by Darth Vader for suspected Rebel activities. After rescuing Organa, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca and the princess herself were trapped in a garbage masher on this level and nearly crushed to death before being saved by the droids C-3PO and R2-D2.
