I'm guessing this has already been brought up, but if not...
I think of space stations as stationary, not moving. If thats the case, wouldn't Mal have been a little more cautious about delivering medical supplies to the planet Niska orbits. Wouldn't Mal not have gone there at all or at least not called it a "milk run"? In the episode Mal also refers a few times to the "this quadrant" meaning they are in a specific part of space. Maybe Niska's station moves around in this specific quadrant?
Regardless, it seems pretty unlikely that when Serenity entered the system they wouldnt detect a giant space station....

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same

In The Train Job, the skyplex was orbiting upside down. This means that the top of the station was pointing directly towards the planet and the bottom pointing towards space.
In War Stories, the skyplex is orbiting almost with a 90 degree rotation to that. This means that both the top and bottom are pointing towards space, and 1 'side' of its rotation is towards the planet.
This change of orientation could be a result of moving the station to a different planet.

I would assume that the station was in a geostationary orbit so you always know where it is
