Well, LW's sample files include a starfield object (Space/Randomstars.lwo), but it's a bit boring.

For something more interesting, go to http://www.ap3d.com/betterspace/betterspace-tut-00.htm, for tutorials on making your own (as well as nebulas, and lots of other good stuff.)

Great tut! 12 lessons covering any topic you can think of!
The link has a problem, though.

This one should do.
If you do a lot of starfield scenes, you might want to give a try at Hyperstars pluging

Easy to use, good results, and not so expensive.
