The Sectors


 

Ploo Sector

(Greater Plooriod Cluster)

 

Ploo Sector
This area of the galaxy is home to the Glymphid and Blubreen species.

 

Greater Plooriod Cluster
This area of the galaxy contains the planet Corsin, and was home to some of the galaxy's finest swoop racing until it was occupied by the Empire.

 

Corsin
A planet located in the Greater Plooriod Cluster. It was a planet known for its devotion to life, but it was subjugated by the Empire and occupied during the Galactic Civil War. It was also the site of famous swoop races. According to Rebellion, Corsin is located in Sesswenna Sector.

 

Ghorin
This former overlord and Imperial supporter was the ruler of the Greater Plooriod Cluster. He agreed to supply the Alliance with a shipment of grain, but double-crossed them by providing poisoned cargo. In response, Ghorin was discredited by the Alliance. Alliance pilots used ships stolen from Ghorin's navy to attack an Imperial supply convoy in the Geedon System. Ghorin was executed for treason by Darth Vader. He had a vast castle on the planet Plooriod IV.

 

Imperial Drydock IV
This Imperial station was maintained in the Greater Plooriod Cluster during the Galactic Civil War. It was a stopover point for Interdictor cruisers working in the Outer Rim.

 

Ploo II
This planet was located in the Ploo Sector of the Expansion Region of the galaxy, and was the home world of the Glymphid race.

 

Ploo IV
This planet was located in the Ploo Sector of the Expansion Region of the galaxy, and was the home world of the Fluggrian race.

 

Plooriod III
Darth Vader killed the brutal Lord Ghorin here, shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

 

Plooriod IV
the Alliance captured some of Ghorin's Y-Wing fighters near this planet, and used them to discredit the Overlord to Darth Vader. The Alliance later destroyed the frigate Red Wind near the planet. Plooriod IV, located in the Ploo Sector of the galaxy, is covered with marshlands.

This high-gravity, tropical planet was the home world of the Aramandi race. It was located in the Aramand Cluster of Brak Sector. It was orbited by a single moon.

 

Asran System
This planetary system was located in Brak Sector.

 

Bacrana
This planet was the site of a strong Alliance cell, which erupted following the Battle of Yavin. The planet was the capital of Brak Sector at the height of the New Order. The Imperial Moff in charge, a man named Lesan Ramier, swiftly quelled the insurrection and place the capital city of Amma under martial law.

 

Cirra System
this planetary system, located in Brak Sector, was located in the restricted Aramand Cluster.

Garia System
this planetary system, located in Brak Sector, was controlled by the Empire at the height of the New Order.

 

Genesia
This planet was the second and primary world of the Genesia System, located in Brak Sector. Its location made it a destination for many of the spacers of the sector, and a variety of races from across the galaxy passed through Genesia on their way to other destinations. Many independent spacers believed that the planet was just plain lucky, since there were very few accidents among the multitude of starships jumping to and from Genesia each day. Most of Brak Sector's crime lords established based on Genesia, since the corrupt government held no real power and could be easily bribed. Genesia was orbited by a collection of space stations known as G-Stations, as well as the moons of Laut and Gimm.

 

Genesia
This yellow star was the primary body of the Genesia System of Brak Sector.

 

Green System
This was the name given to the planetary nebula which surrounded the star Tel, in Brak Sector. It was named for the greenish glow given off by the expanded gases of the nebula, when lit by the meager light of Tel.

 

Intran
This remote planet, located in Brak Sector, was the site of an Alliance base which was established shortly before the Battle of Yavin.

 

Jinet
This remote planet, located in Brak Sector, was the site of an Alliance base which was established shortly before the Battle of Yavin.

This planetary system, located in Brak Sector, was controlled by the Empire at the height of the New Order.

 

Skone System
This planetary system, located in Brak Sector, was controlled by the Empire at the height of the New Order.

 

Tel
This small, white dwarf star was the central body of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. The system was known as the Green System because it was actually a planetary nebula, and the star's light made the gases of the nebula appear to glow with a greenish light.

 

Tel I
This was the innermost planet of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. It was a small ball of hot rock.

 

Tel II   
This was the second planet of the Tel System, located in Brak Sector. It was a small ball of hot rock.

 

Tel III
This remote planet, located in Brak Sector, was the site of the Alliance's Oracle Base, which was established shortly before the Battle of Yavin. The planet itself was a ball of ash-covered rock which was crumbling to dust as it aged. Because of the planet's location within the planetary nebula, the skies of Tel III were greenish in color.

 

Tel IV
This frozen ball of rock was the fourth, and outermost, planet in the Tel System of Brak Sector. Note that this planet seems to be different than the Tel IV described in Creatures of the Galaxy.

 

Torve
This planet was located in Brak Sector.

 

Back To Top

 

Elrood Sector

 

Almar
This minor world is the primary planet in the Almaran System. Located in the Elrood Sector, much of the planet was dedicated to the tourist trade. When the Empire invaded the sector, the Alliance was able to erase the data files in the central computer of Almar Upside, the planet's primary city. Dummy corporations were set up, and the planet remained outside of Imperial control. The Alliance then set up a number of listening posts on the planet, in an effort to obtain information on the Imperial forces nearby. Almar is a pleasant world, covered with tropical beaches, jungles, and wide plains of unusual orange grasses.

 

Berea
The primary planet in the Berea System in the Elrood Sector, Berea is a rocky, mountainous world which was owned and operated by Imperial Mining, Limited. Berea was often besieged by hail storms and violent winds, and the nighttime temperature that often drops below freezing. Many Imperial prisoners captured during the Galactic Civil War were sent to labor camps on Berea.

 

Bodrin
The primary planet in the Bodrin System, this rocky world is found in the Elrood Sector. The inhabitants barely make enough working as miners for the Elrood Quarry Corporation to survive. The mines operate at full output during the summer months, but the five winter months force the planet to shut down.

 

Coyn
This planet is the primary planet in the Coyn System, located in the Elrood Sector. It is located at the crossroads of the Elrood-Derilyn Trade Route and the Coyn Run. Coyn is the home world of the fierce, warrior race known as the Coynites, who hold honor and ritual above all else. The average day on Coyn lasts 20 standard hours, and its year lasts 380 local days. This temperate world is blanketed with forests, marshes, and plains broken by beautiful mountain ranges.

 

Coynek
This orange star, located in Elrood Sector, was the primary body in the Coyn System. Its name literally meant "the light of land of conflict and blood."

 

Dar
This hot, rocky world was the first planet in the Derilyn System, found in the Elrood Sector.

 

Dega
This world, the primary planet in the Dega System of the Elrood Sector, was the primary mining colony for Radell Mining Corporation until the veins of minerals and ores dried up during the early years of the New Order. The miners left the planet, leaving rusting equipment and a polluted ecosystem behind. Smugglers have taken refuge on the planet, hiding in the safest mining tunnels. Dega's day takes up 19 standard hours, and its year encompasses 295 local days.

 

Degan Gas Clouds
These pockets of interstellar gases and molecular matter isolated the Dega and Osirrag Systems from the rest of Elrood Sector. However, the gas clouds were segmented, and travel between Dega and Kidron was actually quite easy.

 

Deril
This medium-sized, yellow star was located in the Elrood Sector of the galaxy, and was the primary body in the Deril System. (
PG3)
 

Derilyn
This is the primary planet in the Derilyn System, located in the Elrood Sector. The planet was subjugated by the Empire in a mere three days, and an entire sector army was stationed there. The various races that inhabit the planet - Coynite, Gamorrean, Human, Meris, and Teltoris - were cautious not to upset the Empire, but longed for their freedom. The Derilyn day lasts 27 standard hours, and the year lasts 350 local days. It has a varied ecology.

 

Derilyn Space Defense Platform
This huge space station was placed in orbit around Derilyn by the Empire, when it took control of Elrood Sector and interdicted the space from Derilyn to Berea. Originally built by Rendili StarDrive, this platform had two saucer-shaped sections connected by a thick, central fuselage. It measured 4,225 meters in length (measured from top to bottom), and was manned by a crew of 8,750 officers and 320 gunners. It had the space and capacity to house 10,400 visitors, 4,500 troops, and 1,000 prisoners. The platform could accommodate 15 million metric tons of cargo, including its sealed dry docks, and could maintain itself for five years before being resupplied. The platform was armed with 80 turbolaser batteries and 40 double turbolaser cannons.

 

Elrood   
This planet was the capital world of the Elrood Sector, and is a commercial colony with a reputable starship yard. It was located opposite the Outer Rim Territories, in the Metharian Nebula Territories. The planet was a temperate world of cities and plains. Its average day lasted 28 standard hours, and its year lasted 364 local days. Elrood was orbited by a pair of moons, Sharene and Lodos. It was first settled many thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin, and was named for the governor who funded the colony ships. Note that the Star Wars Adventure Journal, Issue 6 refers to this planet as Eldrood.

 

Halbara
This planet is the primary world in the Halbara System. Located in the Elrood Sector, this planet is owned and operated by Radell Mining. The majority of the planet is covered by tropical rainforests, but it is also ravaged by monsoons most of the year. This makes mining difficult, but Radell has found the rewards worth the pain. They have stationed a security force on Halbara, and have given them authorization to shoot first and ask questions later.

 

Kidron
This was the second, and primary, planet in the Kidron System, located in the Elrood Sector. It was the homeworld of the Orfite race, but has become a sort of haven for criminals and convicts. It was a hot, damp world that is covered with jungles and oceans. Its day lasted 20 standard hours, and its year lasted 276 local days. Kidron had a thin atmosphere and was barely habitable to most races. The atmospheric make-up, along with the orange light from its star, Kidros, gave Kidron a bright orange sky punctuated by intense sunrises and sunsets. The planet was orbited by four moons.

 

Kidros
This orange giant star was located in Elrood Sector, and was the central body in the Kidron System.

 

Korad
This planet was the dumping grounds for the Elrood Sector. Located in the Korad System, Korad was an arid, rocky world covered with junkyards and ringed by an artificial belt of scrap. It was also the base of operations for Slythor the Squib, during the height of the New Order. The planet was controlled by groupd of Squibs in the north and Ugors in the east.

 

Kuantar
This gas giant is the third world in the Kidron System, located in the Elrood Sector. It is surrounded by a spectacular ring system, and had 22 natural satellites.

 

Kuras
This white dwarf star, located in the Elrood Sector of the galaxy, was the primary body in the Kuras System. It was given the name Kuras by the ancient Coynites, who placed it in the constellation Kezz'Sreik'Kuras.

 

Kuras III
This planet was located on the edge of the Elrood Sector, in the Kuras System. It was a dry, volcanic world which was lethal for humans and most other races. An abundance of heavy metals, harmful bacteria, and airborne poisons made it virtually impossible for most humanoid races to survive without some form of breathing apparatus. It existed in "the Drift," the system-wide dust cloud that made travel through the system difficult at best. Despite the lethal environment, Kuras III supported two native life forms: the Aganof and the Pulra. Its day lasted an average of 18 standard hours, and its year encompassed 400 local days. Because of its location, it has not been fully explored.

 

Lanthrym
This was the primary world in the Lanthrym System, a little-traveled part of the Elrood Sector. It was primarily populated by Gamorreans, who work on the planet for the various pirates and crimelords that use Lanthrym as their base. It was a cool world, covered with frozen plains and snowy wastes. The climate has forced the crime bosses to build their casinos and gladiator arenas underground.

 

Maris
This yellow star was located in Elrood Sector, and was the primary body in the Meris System.

 

Meris II
This was the second world in the Meris System, located in the Elrood Sector. It was a hot jungle world that was generally inhospitable to offworld life, although it supported many unique plants and strange, heat-resistant bacteria. This bacteria has been studied for possible commercial uses, but no specific products have been marketed.

 

Meris V
This cool, rocky world was the fifth planet in the Meris System, located in the Elrood Sector. It was unexplored, but promised a vast supply of ores yet to be discovered. It was orbited by a pair of natural satellites.

 

Merisee
This planet, the primary world in the Merisee System of the Elrood Sector, was known as the "breadbasket of the Elrood Sector" because its agricultural production provided foodstuffs to most of the sector. It was the homeworld of two races, the Meri and the Teltior, who had been separated from each other for many millennia until volcanic activity caused seismic shifts in the planet's surface. In a period known as "The Joining," a finger of mountains was formed between the two continents of the planet. This allowed the two races to finally encounter each other, leading to a series of civil wars. The fought for a thousand years before the New Republic located the planet, and the warring parties realized that their feud was miniscule compared to the rest of the galaxy. It enjoyed a free government even at the height of the New Order, and its enlightened leaders strived to keep it that way. The planet's beautiful plains and sweeping vistas hide a dark side to the planet: the Loag. The Loag are a band of mercenaries that survived being wiped out by the old Jedi Knights. The survivors fled to Merisee and hid, silently biding their time to gain revenge. Merisee was orbited by two moons, Tola and Meriso. The average day on Merisee lasts 24 standard hours, and its year lasts 315 local days.

 

Metharian Nebula
This nebula was located near the Elrood Sector, and was the home of a number of star systems.

 

Metharian Nebula Territories
This backwater section of the galaxy contained Elrood Sector and the Metharian Nebula.

 

Nelfrus
This planet was located in the Elrood Sector of the galaxy.

 

Osirrag
The primary planet in the Osirrag System, this forested world could have a flourishing tourist trade if it wasn't located so far from the trade routes that wander through the Elrood Sector. The seasons are calm, and only add to the beauty of the terrain. It is said that a race of sentient creatures lives in the air currents of the planet. Rumors tell of a young boy who sought them out, and learned to communicate with them in their own language of whistles. They developed a lasting relationship, with the boy growing up to become their protector. In return, the creatures extended his lifespan.

 

Pinett
This moon, located in the Elrood Sector of the galaxy, was located near several prominent spice routes which connected the Mid and Outer Rim Territories. Two spaceports services all sorts of traffic to Pinett during the height of the Galactic Civil War. When two factions - the Jon-Tow Economic Development Group and the Corsignis Property Alliance - blockaded the moon in an effort to force each other out of business, the general population of Pinett were forced to exist with minimal food and medical resources. The efforts of the Pinett Freedom Force proved only slightly effective.

 

Serrata
This gas giant was a near-star located in the Elrood Sector. It was the eighth planet in the Derilyn System, and was orbited by five natural satellites. Its mass was growing even during the height of the Galactic Civil War, and would soon be dense enough to induce fusion.

 

Sotipe
This gas giant was the seventh planet in the Derilyn System, located in the Elrood Sector. It was orbited by fourteen moons.

 

Takornan
This exotic world was the fourth planet in the Derilyn System, located in the Elrood Sector. It was a source of a large number of animal and mineral resources, and was orbited by a pair of moons.

 

Tifnyl   
This gas giant was the primary planet in the Tifnyl System, located in the Elrood Sector. Although the planet itself was uninhabitable, one of its moons supported an Imperial listening post during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Torina   
This planet was situated in the middle of the Elrood-Derilyn Trade Route, and was the last free stop along the run during the Empire's control of Elrood Sector. It was the primary world in the Torina System, located in the Elrood Sector. Much of the espionage that occurred in the sector during the Galactic Civil War was based on Torina. Its primary exports were cheap imitations of most products; many of the goods produced on Torina break down after they are purchased. It was the homeworld of the Torine race of near-humans, and was the site of several land-based and orbital starports.

Arkanis Sector

 

Arkanis Sector
This section of the galaxy was found along the border of the Mid Rim Territories.

 

Ryloth
This planet was the homeworld of the Twi'lek race, located in the Outer Rim Territories. It orbited its sun in such a way that one side was perpetually lit and the other was locked in the dark. The bright side generated huge heat storms which whipped around the planet and died on the night side, but not before warming the dark side up enough to support minimal life. It was a dry, rocky world with a thin, breathable atmosphere. The Twi'Leks there mine the mineral ryll for various legal and illegal uses throughout the galaxy. Ryloth was orbited by five, red-colored moons.

 

Pii
This older, red giant star was the central body of the Pii System, located in the Arkanis Sector of the galaxy. It was surrounding by seven planets, with two asteroid belts littering the system with debris. The first belt was located between the second and third planets, which the second and larger belt was located between the fifth and sixth planets.

 

Pii III
This world, like its neighbor Pii IV, was owned by the Greel Wood Loggind Corporation and Meysen Kayson. Pii III produced the best grassland scarlet greel wood, which grew in the drier atmosphere on the planet. Pii 3 was once the site of the seventh Duro Relocation Colony, but it was eventually abandoned. The average day on Pii III lasts 18 standard hours. Its year lasts 352 local days. Pii III and PII IV were known in the Arkanis Sector as Teeda's Eyes.

 

Pii IV
This planet was located in the Pii System, which was part of the Arkanis Sector of the Mid Rim. It was owned by Meysen Kayson and the Greel Wood Logging Corporation, which produces much of the galaxy's supply of greel wood. It was a cool, moist world with mountainous terrain. Its day lasts an average of 21 standard hours, and its year lasts 361 local days. This planet produces the band scarlet greel wood. Along with its neighbor Pii III, these worlds are known as Teeda's Eyes.

 

Tatooine
The primary planet in the Tatoo system, this desert world was located in the Arkanis Sector of the Outer Rim Territories near Piroket and Ryloth, some 43,000 light-years from the galactic core. It was close enough to a major hyperspace nexus to make it easy to get to such worlds as Coruscant and Corellia, but its environment made it one of the most inhosptiable places in the galaxy. The planet's twin suns mercilessly heat the planet, keeping the sodium-rich deserts alive, and a trio of moons encircles the planet. Note that several sources are unsure exactly how many moons Tatooine has. Some say that the planet has a single, natural satellite, while others indicate two or more. Originally discovered more than 5,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, Tatooine was colonized in two distinct waves. Much of the original colonization was unable to survive the harsh environment, and only the city of Anchorhead survived until the modern era. About 1,000 years before the rise of the Empire, the Old Republic declared the planet "nominally habitable," but it was nearly 900 years later that the planet was settled again. These modern settlers arrived to colonize this first world in what was then called the J11.9 system. They coined the name Tatooine from the Jawa name for the planet, Tah doo Een e. The settlers established strongholds on the planet, and many smugglers and criminals have set up operational bases in its wastelands. Corellia Engineering even tried to establish mining operations on the planet, but it proved to be unusually lacking in valuable ores. The settlers there are primarily moisture farmers, extracting what little water they can from the atmosphere for survival. Its location on the galactic fringes makes it a perfect base for smugglers, mercenaries, and bounty hunters. The planet, despite its hostile ecology, supports human life was well as the native races of Jawas, krayt dragons, and Tusken Raiders. The planet's remote location appealed to Owen Lars and his wife Beru, and they lived there with Luke Skywalker for many years. Tatooine's average day lasts 23 standard hours, and its year consumes 304 local days. Note that the Star Wars Journal: Anakin Skywalker claims Tatooine is located not only near several hyperspace routes, but also near other galaxies.

 

Zhar
This gas giant was orbitted by two moons, Gall and Kile. It is located in the far Rim Systems. Secrets of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire notes that Zhar is in the same system as Tatooine. This contradicts Galaxy Guide 7: Mos Eisley, but might indicate that Zhar is located in the Arkanis Sector. Also note that the Shadows of the Empire Sourcebook names this planet Zahr, and places it in Cadavine Sector.

 

Arkanis
This planet was the homeworld of Devon Fuller.

 

Centaris
Outermost of the mid systems trading worlds. Last civilized stopover for those doing business in the galactic backwater, or taking a fling at the unknown or hoping to escape the long arm of the Empire.

Fakir Sector

 

Fakir Sector
This area of the galaxy was located just outside the Core Worlds, and contains several hundred planets. Some 50 of these worlds produced intelligent life forms by the era of the New Order and the Galactic Civil War.

 

Alabash
This young planet was located on the far edge of Fakir Sector from the Core. It was once considered too volcanic to successfully mine, until the Empire realized that the planet was a prime source of alantium. The Empire tried to establish a mining colony on the planet, but the Alliance was able to send in a strike team and disrupt the colony's construction.

 

Doneer'so
This planet, the primary world of the Doneer'so System in Fakir Sector, was the homeworld of the Doneer race.

 

Fakir
This planet, located in the system and sector of the same name, was part of the galaxy under Imperial control during the Galactic Civil War. It was where some of the Empire's wealth was stored. Voren Na'al once operated as an Alliance spy in the Fakir System, posing as a special agent to Moff Lorin of the system during the infiltration of an information network on Halowan.

 

Flankers
This world was located in a remote part of Fakir Sector, on the border between the sector and the Colonies region. Its star exploded sometime after the Battle of Yavin, destroying the entire system. The Empire abandoned its base on Flankers shortly before the explosion.

 

Hijoian Docks
This space station was located in the Hijoian System of Fakir Sector. The Ho'Din terrorist Yansan destroyed a pair of the Alliance's Gallofree Medium Transports at this station, shortly before the Battle of Hoth.

 

Hijoian System
This planetary system was located in Fakir Sector.

 

Ichalin Station   
Located in the Fakir Sector, this space station was the site of one of Yansan's terrorist actions against the Alliance.

 

Lorimax   
This was an agricultural world located in Fakir Sector.

 

M13   
This was the designation of the Imperial repair station constructed in order around the planet Mycroft, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Its mission was to support the Imperial exploration and picket ships operating in Fakir Sector during the Galactic Civil War. As part of Operation Retribution, a group of Alliance agents were sent to Mycroft to harass the station, and nearly succeeded in destroying it. As it was, the station was rendered useless to the Empire and abandoned.

 

Sarnikken Asteroid Belt
This dangerous belt of planetoids was located in Fakir Sector. Its asteroids contained a wealth of heavy metals, and mining operations struggled for control of them. The Empire tried to take control of the Belt for its own use, but the resident miners proved to be quite tenacious in their holdings. Imperial officers and bureaucrats had the tendency to disappear during trips to the Sarnikken Belt. The attempts by the Empire to take over the Belt only served to push the miners toward an agreement with the Alliance, and the Alliance received a wealth of raw materials from the Belt for the construction of its starships and weapons. The Alliance was often provided the assistance of Reekeene's Roughnecks to protect transports into and out of the Belt.

 

Vakkar   
This planet was the Imperial sector capital of Fakir Sector.

 

Yirt-4138-Grek-12   
Located in the Fakir Sector of the galaxy, this 65-kilometer-wide asteroid served as a base of oeprations for a group of computer hackers during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Shortly before the onset of war, the hackers were wiped out by forces put together by the Corporate Alliance. The Alliance was tipped off to the facility on the asteroid by the testimony of Denlace Sachoore. A force of large, treaded tank droids was dispatched to the asteroid, and quickly dismantled the training facility. Many Old Republic Senators questioned the use of excessive force in elimianting the facility, despite the fact that the asteroid was located within the boundaries of Corporate Alliance space.

Corellia Sector

 

Corellian Sector
A group of 24 star systems, of which the Corellian System is the most important. The Corellian Sector is located within the area of the galaxy known as the Core Worlds. In general, it is an inward-looking group of systems. The sector was particularly introverted during and after the Galactic Civil War, when it did everything possible to stay out of the political and social upheaval. The planets and their inhabitants have been labeled paranoid and distrustful because of their introversion. Much of this was attributed to the enforced laws of the old Empire, which demanded that the humans, Selonians, and Drall in the sector co-exist in relative peace, maintaining the outward appearance of cooperation.

 

Commenor   
This planet, located near the Corellian System and sitting on the outer edge of the Core Worlds, was a trading outpost and spaceport. Han tells Luke that he traded his chivalry for a 10-carat chrysopaz and three bottle of brandy there. According to Star Wars: Rebellion, Commenor is located in the Corellian Sector.

 

Corellia   
Homeworld of Han Solo and Garm Bel Iblis, Corellia is located in the Corellian System, in the Corellian Sector of the galaxy, somewhere near the Core Worlds. It was once a democracy (in the days of Berethon e Solo), and reverted temporarily to a monarchy when Korol Solo tried to raise himself to kingship. Following his hanging, Corellia returned to being a republic (about 250 years before Han was born). Since then, it has become an introverted world, keeping mainly to intself and not getting involved with outside politics. During the height of the Clone Wars, Corellia was ostensibly aligned with the Old Republic, although many historians note that Corellia was actually opposed to the Confederacy of Independent States. The planet has a temperate ecology, with many large oceans.

 

Corellian System
The primary planetary system in the Corellian Sector, the Corellian System is an anomolous system in that it has 5 habitable planets (Corellia, Drall, Selonia, Talus, and Tralus; they are known in the system as the Five Brothers) orbiting the system's primary star, Corell. Some scientists and astrophysicists have hypothesized that the system was "built" by a higher power, since the planets all have similar, strange orbits, and all support life. The three primary species in the system - human, Drall, and Selonian - have moved about quite a bit during the system's life, and all are equally at home on any of the five worlds.

 

Corfai
The site of New Republic supply bunker, this planet is located in the Corellian Sector.

 

Duro
This star was the central body of the Duro System, located in the Corellian Sector of the galaxy.

 

Duro
This planet, located in the Corellian Sector, is the homeworld of the Duro race. Han Solo's grandfather, Dalla Suul, was born on Duros. The Duro race had established a vast starship construction industry, nearly equal to that of Corellia. The government of the system is made up of a consortium of starship construction corporations, with all necessary political decisions being made by the corporations' stockhoders. Thus, any Duro which owns stock in these companies can participate in the governing of the system. The planet Duros itself is uninhabited, since the Duros have covered it with automated farms. The former population, and all visitors, live in twenty orbiting cities that provide easy access to the starship construction facilities. Note that Mission to Mount Yoda claims the planet was later used by the Empire as a dumping ground, and became so toxic that the Duro who lived there were forced to move into orbiting space stations. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Duros High House agreed to place domed cities on the surface of Duro, in order to house the refugees fleeing the aliens. In return, the Senate Select Committee for Refugees agreed to employ the refugees in activities which would restore the planet's natural environment. Despite the underhanded efforts of CorDuro Shipping and SELCORE, the scientists and refugees began to eliminate the toxins and restore the planet's ecosystem. Despite the assurances of SELCORE and CorDuro Shipping, the Yuuzhan Vong ultimately attacked Duro, hoping to destroy the orbital cities and captured thousands of refugees and Duros as sacrifices. In the batlle, all of the cities were destroyed, with the exception of Urrdorf City.

 

Froz
A planet, and homeworld of the Frozian race, Froz had a lighter-than-standard gravity. It was once covered with grassy plains and deciduous forests, until the Empire decided to punish the Frozians for sympathizing with the Alliance. Large portions of the planet's surface were bombarded with turbolasers, destroying much of the native flora and fauna. Many years later, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the asteroids in the Froz System were used as communications bases by the New Republic and the Jedi Knights, who were keeping tabs on the Yuuzhan Vong presence in the Corellian Sector.

 

Outlier Systems
A collection of star systems in the Corellian Sector which are extremely introverted. They are by far the most secretive worlds in the sector, and have been said to make the Corellian System look open-minded. Many of the Corellian System's Imperial functionaries fled that system following the death of Emperor Palpatine, and took up residence in the Outlier Systems. There, they regained policital offices, and work with the Diktat to govern the sector.

 

Sacorria
A planet located in the Outlier Systems in the Corellian Sector, Sacorria orbits the star known as Sacor and has a single moon. Among its many traditions is the requirement that all women have their father's permission to marry. When the racial separation began in the Corellian Sector, just prior to Thrackan Sal-Solo's rise to power, the Saccorian Triad also ruled that marriages to off-worlders would be outlawed. This put a kink in Lando Calrissian's plans to marry Tendra Risant. Sacorria was the third planet in the Sacorria System, and was orbited by the moon Sarcophagus. The average day on Sacorria lasted 23 standard hours, and its year lasted 343 local days.

 

Talfaglio
Located in Talfaglio System, the least-populated section of the Corellian Sector, this planet was where Pharnis Gleasry was able to meet Mara Jade and give her a message cube from Thrackan Sal-Solo for Princess Leia.

 

Vagran
This planet, located in the Corellian Sector, is where Talon Kaarde's team obtained three Skipray blastboats.

 

Xyquine
This planet was the site of a botched New Republic mission in which Pash Cracken invented the Cracken Twist. It is located in the Corellian Sector. The New Republic fleet, under the command of the Mon Calamari Gingal, was ambushed by Imperial forces while on patrol there.

Kuat Sector

 

Daver Kuat
This temperate world was the third planet in the Kuat System. It was orbited by two moons.

 

Kuat
This star was the central body of the Kuat System.

 

Kuat
This planet was of prime importance to the New Order, for the Kuat Drive Yards shipyards there were among the first to mass-produce warships for the Empire. The relationship blossomed, and the Kuat Drive Yards were made into the primary facility for the construction of Star Destroyers. A forested world of pastoral beauty, Kuat was one of four planets located in the Kuat Sector, located in the most densely-populated area of the galaxy. The planet was orbited by three immense space stations, built by the Empire to manage traffic in and out of the system. The Kuat Passenger Port was dedicated to civilian and tourist traffic. The Kuat Freight Port was dedicated to the transport of goods to and from Kuat. The third station was strictly for use by the Imperial military,and controlled all access to the surface of Kuat. During the Clone Wars, the proximity of Kuat to Neimoidia - separated by less than six parsecs - put the two worlds into direct competition. Kuati officials tried to infiltrate Neimoidian facilities by sending in modified worker droids with concealed spyware, but Neimoidian paranoia had placed safeguards around their all their technologies.

 

Af'El
Homeworld of the Defel race, it is a large, high-gravity world orbiting the ultraviolet supergiant Ka'Dedus. The planet has a thick atmosphere but no ozone layer, and so ultraviolet light passes directly to the surface. Heavy atmospheric gases then block most of the remaining wavelengths of light. For these reasons, all lifeforms on the planet have evolved with the ability to see in ultraviolet light. The planet's main export is the metal meleenium. At one time, Kuat Drive Yards mined Af'El for many of its natural minerals.

 

Alsakan
This planet was founded before the advent of the Old Republic. It was settled by the colonists who brought the Kuat Explorer to the Core. Over the years, the inhabitants have made war on each other with regularity and passion, in a series of battles known as the Alsakan Conflicts. The wondrous warships used in the battles were the design basis for the Invincible-class dreadnaughts. When Palpatine rose to power and formed the Empire, Alsakan supported the New Order. It surrendered quickly to the New Republic, however, when Ackbar came to recover the planet.

 

Bador
This was one of the two moons which orbited the planet Kuat.

 

Balmorra
An Imperial world responsible for the manufacture of many of the Empire's most destructive weapons, including the AT-ST and many of the Emperor's war droids, Balmorra was originally a base of operations for the Colicoids. Located between Kuat and Neimoidia, Balmorra was one of the many worlds which seceded from the Old Republic. After the Battle of Endor, Balmorra was attacked by the group of Dark Jedi who tried to re-establish the Empire after the reborn Empire's death, but the Balmorrans repelled the Empire using the weapons they had built. The planet then became somewhat loyal to the New Republic, initiating trade with the government. When Sedriss rose to power, he forced the Balmorrans into an uneasy arms alliance following a battle between the various war machines produced on the planet.

 

Drurish System
This largely uninhabited star system, located near Kuat, served as a staging area for passenger starships outbound from the Kuat Passenger Port.

 

Goravas
This volcanic world was the second planet in the Kuat System. It was orbited by a single moon.

 

Gortis
This barren, rocky world was the fifth planet in the Kuat System. It was orbited by three moons.

 

Horthav System
This largely uninhabited star system was located near Kuat, and served as one of the two main staging for cargo-bearing traffic which was inbound to the Kuat Freight Port.

 

Inner Kuat Traffic Zone
This was the name given to the area located between the planet of Kuat and the three main spaceports which served it: the Kuat Passenger Port, the Kuat Freight Port, and the Imperial Transfer Post. Civilian starships were not allowed within this Zone, as non-qualified ships were forbidden to travel directly to Kuat.

 

Kidir System
This largely uninhabited star system, located near Kuat, served as a staging area for passenger starships outbound from the Kuat Passenger Port.

 

Monadin System
This largely uninhabited star system was located near Kuat, and served as one of the two main staging for cargo-bearing traffic which was inbound to the Kuat Freight Port.

 

Rasapan
This gas giant was the sixth and outermost planet of the Kuat System. It was orbited by twenty-two moons.

 

Redrish System
This largely uninhabited star system was located near Kuat, and served as one of the two main staging for passenger traffic which was inbound to the Kuat Passenger Port.

 

Renegg
This planet was the primary world in the Renegg System, and was the site of an Imperial base during the Galactic Civil War. It was chosed for its proximity to the Kuat System, and the fleet stationed there was in place to defend any attack on the Kuat Drive Yards. The Renegg System also served as a staging area for starship traffic which was outbound from the Kuat Freight Port.

 

Ristel   
This ball of searing rock was the innermost planet of the Kuat System.

 

Ronay   
This was one of the two moons which orbited the planet Kuat.

 

Rothana   
Located in the Kuat Sector of the galaxy, Rothana was one of the most industrialized planets in the sector. The primary world in the Rothana System, it served as the base of operations for Rothan Heavy Engineering, a subsidiary of Kuat Drive Yards, during the last century of the Old Republic. Its proximity to the Kamino System meant that Rothana was chosen by the Kaminoans as the construction site for many of the war machines employed by the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic.

 

Ulion System
This largely uninhabited star system was located near Kuat, and served as one of the two main staging for passenger traffic which was inbound to the Kuat Passenger Port.

 

Vannix
This temperate world, the first planet in the Vankalay System, was similar in many respects to Alderaan. Located near Kuat, Vannix was a blue-green marble mottled with white clouds. The humans who were native to the planet were ostentatious in their manner of dress and decoration, preferring posh accommodations and lavish décor. Their lifestyles were shaken, just after the Battle of Coruscant, when Presider Sakins looted the planetary treasury and fled Vannix, leaving the planet bankrupt and leaderless.

 

Venir
This planet, the primary world in the Venir System located near the Kuat System, was the site of an Imperial base dedicated to protecting the Kuat Drive Yards. The Venir System was also used as a staging area for starship traffic which was outbound from the Kuat Freight Port.

Sumitra Sector

 

Sumitra Sector
A relatively unpopulated sector of the galaxy during the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance set up one of is fighter bases there, on the planet Tierfon. The Sumitra Sector contains 12,387 planets and moons, making the odds of the Empire finding the Tierfon base extremely slim.

 

Alk'lellish III
This planet, located in the Sumitra Sector, is the homeworld of the ketrann.

 

Boordii
A planet on which Han and Lando had to escape from a botched dolfrimia run. It is located on the Sumitra Sector.

 

Flax
Located in the Ptera System of the Sumitra Sector, Flax is home to the Flakax race of insectiods. It is tectonically active, and is covered alternately by oceans, incredibly-tall mountain ranges, and deserts. The Flakax live underground in hives. The planet was overrun by the Empire, and the Flakax were enslaved and used to mine ores from the planet's crust.

 

Geedon V
A world that was home to some of the most vicious pirates in the galaxy, until Gallandro arrived and took control of the entire planet single-handedly. It is located in the Sumitra Sector.

 

Kashyyyk
This jungle planet, known for its deadly flora and fauna, is the Wookiee home world, although there are legends that say the Wookiees settled Kashyyyk after travelling from another planet. There are four main continents on the planet, separated by bands of ocean studded with archipelagoes. There is a small region of desert near the equator. The Wookiees live in huge tree cities built to elevate them from the dangerous lower levels of the jungle. The Wookies discovered that the jungle had seven distinct levels, each defined by the amount of light it receives. The lower levels - designated first, second, and third - have plants which are phosphorescent, providing their own light. Wookiees never traveled below the fourth level. The normal Kashyyyk rotational period lasts about 26 standard hours; its year lasts 381 local days. It is located in the Sumitra Sector, and has three moons.

 

Linuri
This planet was the site of a hit-and-run operation by Garm Bel Iblis' commandos against Thrawn and the Imperial Navy. It is located in the Sumitra Sector.

 

Marca
This swamp planet was the homeworld of the Sekct species. Because of the existence of a Dynamic Synergetics Incorporated hyperbaride production facility on the planet, the Empire had all records of Marca erased from planetary databases, in order to use the planet as they saw fit. The hyperbaride production was lethal to the native Sekct, and their species was nearly wiped out. A team of Alliance agents, on their way to Sumitra Sector, cut through the Marcellus Nebula and was forced to land on the planet. The team eventually brought down the hyperbaride plant, with the help of the Sertim sisters and the Sekct, and helped free the Sekct from its toxic wastes. The planet itself is covered with a swamp-filled ocean, with virtually no continental land mass, and measured some 12,000 kilometers in diameter. The heat of the planet, combined with its swampy surface, generated a continual shroud of mist which enveloped the planet. The mists collected and dispersed sunlight, making it appear as if Marca had no day/night schedule, just a perpetual hazy gloom. The year on Marca was measured as 340 standard days.

 

Qat Chrystac
This Sumitra Sector planet was the site of Lando's shieldship depot, near Nkllon. Much of the planet is covered with radioactive volcanoes that spew toxic lava across its surface at a prodigious rate.

 

Tierfon
A planet in the Sumitra Sector that housed a secret Alliance fighter base during the Galactic Civil War. The Alliance used this base to patrol the Sumitra Sector and to provide escorts for secret convoys. Located on a steep cliff face overlooking a deep valley, the Alliance had perfect views for miles around. They dug deep into the rock, and built maintenance and refueling sites for convoy ships. The base was guarded by defensive lasers and the X-Wings based there, but had little other defenses. The base was run by 12 command personnel, and maintained 18 pilots and 54 ground troops. 74 support and technical staff were also stationed there. The base supported 5 airspeeders, 2 landspeeders, 4 speeder bikes, and 8 X-Wing starfighters. An MD-1 and an MD-2 droid provided medical support. Tierfon base was the base for the famous Yellow Aces Squadron.

 

Woostri
This planet was attacked by Thrawn prior to his attack on Coruscant. It was attacked by the Death's Head under C'baoth's mental command. Woostri is located in the Sumitra Sector. The planet's ecosystem is dominated by oceans, with a single continent located in the water. Historians claim that a cataclysmic event sunk much of the planet's prior landmass, resulting in a crowded, urbanized technopolis.

 

Alaris Prime
This moon orbited a huge gas giant, which masked the moon's appearance to most shipboard sensors. For this reason, it went undiscovered to many millennia, until the Wookiees of nearby Kashyyyk discovered space travel. When the Wookiees first arrived, they found a world of temperate forests and oceans, with many stands of wroshyr trees, which were believed to be native only to Kashyyyk. Wookiee legends tell of wroshyr trees traveling through space to Alaris Prime, but no scientific explanation has ever been put forth. Alaris Prime was eventually turned over to the Wookiees by the Old Republic, after some twenty years of deliberation. It was a highly-valued world, given its proximity to Kessel and Bimmisaari, and the Trade Federation once tried to obtain control for themselves. The Wookiees objected to this, fighting to keep the Federation off Alaris Prime. Note that Star Wars Insider, Issue 62 indicates that this moon was simply named Alaris, and that it orbited Kashyyyk itself.

 

Gyndine
A territorial administrative world near the Circarpous system, it was the home and base of Bin Essada during the height of the New Order. Later, Gyndine joined the New Republic, and agreed to set up an enclave for the refugees fleeing the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. However, shortly after the alien invaders attacked Ord Mantell, they targetted Gyndine. Waves of refugees tried to get off the planet, but the attacking aliens destroyed New Republic rescue ships and forced huge numbers of refugees to be left behind. The Yuuzhan Vong then took their time in rendering the planet unsuitable for habitation.

 

Circarpous IV
Fourth planet in the Circarpous system, and home to a group of people sympathetic to the Alliance. The natives feared to openly side with the Alliance, due to the strong Imperial presence in the system.

 

Circarpous Major
Primary star in the Circarpous system of 14 planets.

 

Circarpous V
Known as Mimban by its inhabitants, Circarpous V was the fifth planet in the Circarpous System. Located in the Expansion Region of the galaxy, Circarpous V was the site of a secret Imperial mining operation during the years surrounding the Battle of Yavin. The homeworld of the Mimbanite and Coway races, Circarpous V was part swamp, part jungle, and part bog. It was orbited by two moons.

 

Circarpous X
The tenth planet in the Circarpous system, and home to a small outpost colony with possible Alliance sympathizers. There is also a monitoring station there which interrogates all large traffic moving into the system. Their sensors are geared toward star cruisers and other large ships, but an X-wing or two could slip past.

 

Circarpous XII
The twelfth planet in the Circarpous system, and home to a small outpost colony with possible Alliance sympathizers.

 

Circarpous XIV
The fourteenth planet in the Circarpous system was home to an early Alliance outpost base.

 

Tholatin
This planet was an uninhabited ball of rock, except for the smugglers' settlement in Esau's Ridge.

Hapes Cluster

 

Hapes Cluster
A system of 63 star systems, it was originally settled by a group of pirates called the Lorell Raiders, and was overrun by the Empire until Ta'a Chume ousted them. She ruled with an iron fist until her heir, Prince Isolder, chose Teneniel Djo to be his wife and the next Chume. Teneniel Djo brought the Hapans into the New Republic. There were at least 119 known worlds within the Cluster's boundaries, of which 12 were unsettled at the time of the New Republic's negotiations with Ta'a Chume. Following Prince Isolder's marriage to Teneniel Djo, twelve of these worlds aligned themselves directly with the New Republic. The Cluster has four distinct regions: the Interior Region, which is considered the heart of the Cluster and contains Hapes; the Rifle Worlds, named for the fact that these industrial worlds once tried to secede from the Hapes Consortium; the Rim Worlds, which bordered on the rest of the known galaxy; and the Transitory Mists Region, which is filled with nebulous gases and is home to many pirate groups.

 

Dreena
An uninhabited world in the Hapes cluster, visited by Isolder and his father when Isolder just a boy.

 

Gallinore
This verdant, wilderness planet was the homeworld of the life-forms which are known as Rainbow Gems, and was part of the Hapes Cluster. During the era of the New Republic, Hapan scientists established an outpost on the planet, where they worked with a variety of unusual, biotechnology. This technology was based on work which was rumored to have created the original rainbow gems.

 

Hapes
This was the primary star in the Hapan System, and was generally considered the central body of the Hapes cluster.

 

Lorell
This planet, located in the Hapes Cluster, was named for the Lorell Raiders who originally settled in the sector.

 

Maires
This ocean planet, found in the Hapes Cluster, is the homeworld of the Mairan race of aquatic aliens.

 

Olanji   
A planet in the Hapes cluster.

 

Orelon   
A star in the Hapes cluster.

 

Reboam   
A planet in the Hapes cluster, refered to by Ta'a Chume when she has dinner with Luke Skywalker on Coruscant. In an effort to distract Luke from his search for Han Solo and Princess Leia, Ta'a Chume tells Luke that a group of 50 Jedi ran a small academy on the planet, before it was sealed up by Darth Vader, with the Jedi inside. The planet has a harsh, mostly uninhabited environment.

 

Rifle Worlds
This section of the Hapes Cluster was settled during the Cluster's industrial period. Much of the Cluster's manufacturing takes place on the worlds of this region. The worlds of the interior regions of the Cluster regarded these planets as second-class worlds, which the settlers deeply resented. The area gets its name from the fact that these worlds once tried to secede from the Cluster in protest of their second-class treatment.

 

Vergill
This planet, located in the Hapes Cluster, is the homeworld of the Vergill race.

Farlax Sector

 

Farlax Sector
This area of the galaxy, containing the Koornacht Cluster, was defended by the Black Sword Command during the Imperial Civil War. It was located in the Rim Territories, and was largely unexplored by New Republic surveyors. Farlax Sector also contains the Hatawa and Kokash Systems, and accounts for more than 2,000 inhabited worlds. Some 300 of these worlds were members of the New Republic before the Yevethan Purge.

 

Dandalas
This planet is located in the Koornacht Cluster, in Farlax Sector.

 

Faz
This planet was a member of the Duskhan League, and was one of the many colony worlds held by the Yevetha. It is located in the Koornacht Cluster, in Farlax Sector.

 

Galantos
This planet, located in the Utos System of Farlax Sector, is the homeworld of the Fia. Galantos is found outside the bounds of the Koornacht Cluster. Its surfce was covered with gelatinous pools which were dotted with small islands. The crust of the planet was broken into tectonic plates, and the landmasses were subjected to regular seismic vibrations. Thus, the cities built by the Fia had to withstand strong seismic activity. Most of the transportation on Galantos was based on balloons, which allowed them to move about with investing in roadways that could be damaged by earthquakes. When Borsk Fey'lya was named the Chief of State of the New Republic, he chose to ignore Galantos and the Fia as unimportant, an act which later led the Fia to break off communications with the Republic while negotiating with the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Koornacht Cluster
A collection of some 2,000 star systems first noticed by Aitro Koornacht, the Koornacht Cluster has many names. It is known as "The Multitude" by the Fia, "God's Temple" by the Wehttem, and no'aat padu'll - The Little Nursery - by the Ka'aa. The Cluster is located at the outer edges of the Deep Core, bordering on the Core Worlds themselves. It was controlled by the Yevetha from N'zoth, until the Empire invaded the Cluster and established a number of shipyards there. The Black Sword Command was stationed there, out of the way of prying eyes. The Yevethan government - the Duskhan League - later assumed control of the Cluster. It is located in the Farlax Sector of the Rim, between Coruscant and the Core. Despite the number of systems the Cluster contains, only about 100 planets have been found with native forms of life, and just six developed sentient lifeforms.

 

Nanta-Ri
This Farlax Sector planet was blockaded during the Yevethan Purge by the New Republic's Fourth Battle Group.

 

Wehttam
A planet near the Koornacht Cluster, Wehttam was the homeworld of the Wehttam species. It was found in the Farlax Sector, and was one of the many planets that suffered during the Great Yevethan Purge. Years later, after the Yevethan were defeated by the New Republic, the Wehttam were one of many races to knowingly cut off communications with the Republic. The planet was isolated because the Wehttam had agreed to provide information to the Yuuzhan Vong on the military strengths of the Yevetha, in hopes of having the alien invaders eliminate the Yevethan threat.

 

Z'fell
This planet, located in Farlax Sector's Koornacht Cluster, was one of the original Duskhan League worlds.

 

Zone 19
This area of Farlax Sector is located on the edge of the Koornacht Cluster, nestled between the Cluster and the Core. It separates the planets Wakiza and Doornik-319.

 

Zone 90 East
This area of Farlax Sector was located near Doornik-319. Leia Organa-Solo sent a number of X-Wing, B-Wing, and E-Wing squadrons there to cover for losses suffered during the Fifth Battle Group's unsuccessful blockade of the planet.

 

Doornik-319
The New Republic designation for the Kubaz world of Morning's Bell. The Yevetha know it as Preza.

 

Wakiza
This planet, located in the Koornacht Cluster, was the site of an Imperial shipyard supporting the Black Sword Command. It was one of the original twelve Duskhan League worlds.

 

J't'p'tan
This planet, located within the Koornacht Cluster, was one of the worlds to which the Fallanassi fled when the Empire attacked Lucazec. Wialu was one of the Fallanassi who fled there, and she sensed the danger of the Yevetha Great Purge. The planet was known in the New Republic's astrogation catalog as FAR202019S, and was known to other as Doornik-628E, the fifth planet of the Doornik-628 System. It was originally discovered by a group of H'kig idealists who were fleeing persecution on the planet Rishi. The name of the planet was derived from a series of H'Kig glyphs which describe basic elements of the H'kig religion. The first three are too sacred to write out - jeh teh peh - and form the "J't'p'" portion of the name. The last piece - tan - not so sacred. The Yevetha wiped out the H'kig settlement on the planet, reducing it to scroched ruins while exterminating all but a few of the religious followers. J't'p'tan measured some 11,200 kilometers in diameter. Its day lasted 22 standard hours, and its year encompassed 407 local days.

Minos Cluster

 

Minos Cluster
A collection of planetary systems at the edge of the known galaxy, it is a fairly safe haven for the galaxy's outcasts. There are over 70 planets in the Cluster which could sustain life, although humans have only settled 10 primary worlds. Much of the Cluster's native sentient life remains in the stone age.

 

Adarlon
This planet, located in the Minos Cluster, functioned as the Cluster's entertainment destination. By itself, Adarlon is a rugged, mountainous world originally settled by a group of Old Republic altruists - many from Alderaan - for its beauty rather than its resources. They were particularly well-funded, and their society grew into one of entertainment rather than survival. It was on Adarlon that the holographic medium was developed as an entertainment staple, and music from the planet is also highly sophisticated. Its primary industry was centered around tourism, and its temperate climate was well-suited to the various resorts and parks which operated there. Adarlon has a day which lasts 21 standard hours, and a year which lasts 381 local days. Adarlon was also the home to one of the most famous opera companies in the galaxy, and the famous opera singer Neile Janna was a native of Adarlon.

 

Eliad
A non-descript planet in the Minos Cluster, it was on Eliad that Emperor Palpatine exiled a large number of nobles after stripping them of their power. He offered them the chance to remain alive - rather than make martyrs out of them by killing them - if they remained in permanent exile. If they agreed, they were allowed to take with them all of their wealth. Eliad was one of a handful of remote worlds that Palpatine chose as his exile colonies. With nothing to do and nowhere to go, the incredibly rich settlers of Eliad devised increasingly sophisticated and demented ways of entertaining themselves. The inhabitants remained staunch, albeit quite, supporters of the Old Republic, but they kept their beliefs to themselves rather than attract Imperial attention. Palpatine stationed a Lancer-class frigate in orbit around Eliad, to keep the nobles in their places. The average day on Eliad lasts 21 standard hours, while its year encompasses 381 local days.

 

Gesaril
A strange planet found in the Gesaril System of the Minos Cluster, Gesaril was the site of a series of accidents involving nine Imperial warships. The planet is covered with a dense jungle which seems to float above a noxious swamp. It is the homeworld of the Gesaril race. The Empire had a strong presence in the system for two reasons. First, it had quarantined the system until it could discover why nine separate ships crashed in the exact same section of coastline. Second, a prison facility was built on an asteroid in far orbit around Gesaril's sun. The average day on Gesaril lasts 19 standard hours, and the year lasts 134 local days.

 

Haven
A small planetoid located in the Minos Cluster, Haven was the site of the Alliance's primary resistance center in the Cluster during the Galactic Civil War. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa fled to this planet after losing Han Solo at Cloud City, meeting a segment of the Alliance fleet and regrouping. Luke received his prosthetic hand while in orbit around Haven, and it was here that the initial plan to rescue Solo was put into action.

 

Javis-12
This asteroid is one of the largest in the Mestra System asteroid field, located in the Minos Cluster. It is roughly egg-shaped, and measures about 400 kilometers at its widest point. The asteroid no longer revolves around its axis, thanks to specially-placed repulsors. This keeps the main living areas on the far side of the asteroid, away from the rest of the asteroid belt. This protects the living areas from asteroid and meteorite hits. Javis-12 orbits the Mestra System's star once every 611 local days. The Minos-Mestra Corporation's local headquarters were located on this asteroid, and the system's only starport is located here. The starport is a conglomerate of domes and caves ranging across and below the surface of the asteroid.

 

Karideph
This planet is one of the most overpopulated places in the galaxy. Like Coruscant, Karideph's surface is dominated by cities, with any space not given over to buildings being consumed with endless tiers of well-groomed gardens. There is no longer any wilderness or wildlife on Karideph. Even the mountains and seas have been turned into terraced and manicured plots. Much of the planet's industry is geared toward the production of food for its incomprehensible numbers; foodstuffs also top the list of items imported to the planet. The planet's native sentient race, the Kari, supported the Alliance during the Galactic Civil War, although they were prone to any attack which left them without a constant source of food. Karideph is located in the Minos Cluster, and served as one endpoint of the Trition Tarde Route. Its temperate climate once allowed the operation of farms. Its day lasts approximately 19 standard hours, and its year lasts 204 local days.

 

Mestra System
This Minos Cluster system once held planetary bodies, although all of them have been destroyed. In their wake stretches one of the galaxy's largest asteroid fields. It has been estimated that over 100 trillion pieces of rock exist in the field, with many of them being large enough to rival small moons. The Mestra System has been mined for the abundant durelium ore found in the asteroids. The system is owned and controlled by the Minos-Mestra Corporation. The asteroids are mined for their wealth of usable ores and minerals. The asteroid belt circles the system every 611 local days, as measured from the asteroid Javis-12. The average "day" in the system lasts about 45 standard hours, which is the median rotational period of the largest asteroids. There are a large number of rumors and legends which describe ancient troves of weapons, treasures, and artifacts that are hidden within the asteroids, although no one has yet brought forth physical proof.

 

Onadax
This planet was located in the Minos Cluster. It was a dry world whose surface seemed to be covered with soot, and which lacked any profitable metals. It was also an ancient, backwater world, and warranted very little attention from the rest of the galaxy. This made it an excellent location for those beings who wanted to live without an overbearing government.

 

Pergitor
This planet, located in a star system of the same name, is found in the Minos Cluster. It was once a lush, tropical garden of a world, and it held a rich cache of rare and exotic minerals. The original settlers were employees of Jesa Corporation who came to Pergitor to mine the minerals. The planet's ruling class descended from Jesa Corporation's leadership. The mining operations continued to take material out of the planet's crust, until intense deep-bore mining by the Jesa Corporation resulted in a volcanic eruption which filled the atmosphere with ash for several years. The eruptions occurred about 100 years before the Battle of Yavin, and tons of toxic elements were expelled by the volcanos. These chemicals are now a permanent part of the atmosphere, and life on Pergitor has been nearly wiped out. The remaining natives must use gasmasks when travelling outside, and all buildings are built air-tight to keep the chemicals out. The average day on Pergitor encompasses 34 standard hours, and its year lasts 291 local days.

 

Quockra-4
This planet, located in the Minos Cluster, is covered with flat, featureless deserts. The planet's environment is essentially that of a huge desert, with scorching days and frigid nights. The most obvious inhabitants of the planet are a strange society of droids. Most of the droids are Imperial designs, but some have unknown origins. The droids have developed a sort of hierarchical society of their own, and remain more or less uninvolved with Quockra-4's native sentient lifeform, the Quockrans. The planet has an average rotation of 31 standard hours, and its year lasts 402 local days.

 

Shesharile
This gas giant, the primary planet in the Shesharile System, was located in the Minos Cluster. It had a large number of moons. Two of them, Shesharile 5 and Shesharile 6, were large enough to be planets, and are capable of supporting life. They were known as the Twin Planets, despite the fact that they are moons.

 

Shesharile 5
This fifth moon of the gas giant Shesharile is large enough to be a planet itself. Along with Sesharile 6, they are known as the "Twin Planets" despite the fact that they are moons. Shesharile 5 has been devastated by the corrupt government that runs them. This moon is known for its resorts, but they are dirty and care little about the environment they are destroying. Pollution has led to ecological disaster, and the inhabitants have regressed to become warring factions. Each blames the others for destroying the twins. Much of the commerce on the moon was centered around making the Imperials that controlled the Minos Cluster happy, so when the Empire pulled out Shesharile 5 went into a swift decline. Much of the planet is run by gangs under the control fo Yerkys ne Dago. The average day on Shesharile 5 lasts 26 standard hours, and its year lasts 377 local days.

 

Teh'Jar II
This planet, located in the Minos Cluster, was rumored to be the resting place of the Um'Tal, or Sky Stone. Both Angrail Ryhl and Nardo Sau sought the artifact during the New Order. Both had to struggle against Imperial bureaucracy to just reach the planet.

 

Travnin
This moon, which orbits a gas giant located in the Minos Cluster, was the Imperial sector capital during the New Order. The moon is a windswept world which supports some rough terrain, including mountains and deserts. The gas giant it orbits is the only planet in the system, itself orbiting a double star. Travnin supports no life on its own, and the human settlers are clustered around a single city and starport. Much of the commerce on the moon was geared toward supporting the Imperial garrison, and when the Empire pulled out of the Cluster, the moon's fortunes went with it. A swoop racing arena was built by the Empire as a form of entertainment and an outlet for frustrated energy, but the poorly-built structure quickly fell into disrepair. Its rotation lasts about 26 standard hours, and its orbit consumes 325 local days.

 

Yelsain
This forest world is found in the Yelsain System of the Minos Cluster. It was a large planet, although it lacked heavy metals in its composition. This resulted in a lower than normal gravity despite its size. The tress of the forests are immense, with older specimens measuring 400 meters in height. The original settlers were forced to battle the creatures which lived in the trees, and their exploits became the subject of a number of holo-vids produced on nearby Adarlon. The trees consume carbon dioxide and produce oxygen at incredible rates, which means the oxygen content of its atmosphere is quite high. This leads to intense weather patterns, with nightly thunderstorms sweeping across the surface. Yelsain's inhabitants are rural by galactic standards, although their colleges and universities are second to none. They live and work in sprawling cities built in the trees. The natives of the planet were fiercely loyal to the Old Republic, as a result of the Republic's support of the settlement there. Many Jedi Knights claimed Yelsain as their home, and it was rumored that many Jedi hid there during Emperor Palpatine's purge. The planet has a day which lasts 24 standard hours, and a year which lasts 249 local days.

 

Shesharile 6
This sixth moon of the gas giant Shesharile is large enough to be a planet itself. Along with Shesharile 5, they are known as the "Twin Planets," even though they are moons. Like its twin Shesharile 5, Shesharile 6 has been devastated by the corrupt government that runs them. Shesharile 6 is run by the Twi'lek crimelord Yerkys ne Dago, who also controls Shesharile 5 with a group of gangs. Pollution which has run rampant on Shesharile 5 has found its way to Shesharile 6, and the moon has been continually polluted over the years. The average day on Shesharile 6 lasts 26 standard hours, and its year lasts 377 local days.

Kessel Sector

 

Kessel
A planet with large spice mining operation, Kessel is the second and primary world in the Kessel System, far out in the Outer Rim. It has no natural atmosphere, so one is generated by huge processors. It has one moon. Kessel is doomed to be swallowed by the nearby Maw in the next few millennia, as the intense gravity of the multiple black holes draw it in. It was used as an Imperial penal colony, with an Imperial garrison stationed on the moon. The prisoners were used as spice miners. The miners work in near-absolute darkness, so as not to activate the spice. When Emperor Palpatine died at Endor, the Imperials stationed there were not prepared for autonomy. When the prisoners heard about the death of the Emperor, they revolted against the Imperial guards, overthrowing them and establishing control of the planet and the production of spice. Moruth Doole, a prisoner who had risen to the top of the Imperial's list, became the de facto ruler of the mines. He continued to use the lowest of the prisoners as spice miners, keeping a handful of the upper-level prisoners as advisors and crew chiefs. Doole had the atmospheric production reduced in an effort to save money; he felt that since the prisoners worked underground, an above-ground atmosphere was a frivolous waste of money. Doole's reign over the mines ended just after he shot Han Solo down over the planet. Solo escaped through the Maw, only to find the Maw Installation. His escape back through the Maw drew Daala's Imperial fleet through it as well, and his escape drew Daala's ire. She lashed out at Doole's Navy in retaliation, destroying 90% of it. When Tol Sivron and the remaining Installation crew fled through the Maw in the prototype Death Star, they used Kessel as a target for the untested superlaser. They succeeded only in destroying the garrison moon. Lando and Mara Jade tried to reopen the mines, but were unsuccessful at making the operation profitable. Kessel orbits the star Kessa once every 322 local days. Each day lasts about 26 standard hours. Note that the day on Kessel is listed as 34 standard hours, and its year at 428 local days, in the Wizards of the Coast website's Planet Hoppers feature. Also note that the computer game Rebellion states that Kessel is located in the Calaron Sector, while The Hutt Gambit says it's in the Kessel Sector. Also note that Classic Star Wars: The Early Adventures depicts Kessel as a beautiful, temperate world of strange forests of huge fungi. The planet is ravaged by Captain Bzorn, who controlled the Ionic Ring, but it is unclear if the devastation resulted in the desolate world seen in the Jedi Academy Trilogy.

 

Maw, The   
a collection of black holes near Kessel. Its existence is a mystery. The greatest minds in the galaxy have been arguing about its conception: was it a freak of nature, this combination of multiple black holes; or, was it a gateway device created by some lost, ancient civilization. It is slowly drawing the entire Kessel system into the black holes.

 

Honoghr
This once-lush paradise of a planet is the homeworld of the Noghri, and was virtually unknown until it was nearly devastated following a starship battle in its orbit. The Emperor, upon discovering the Noghri, conceived of a plot to enslave Noghri, with the help of Darth Vader. The huge space battle took place above the planet, and one of the ships was destroyed. It plummeted to the planet's surface, setting off earthquakes and releasing toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. When Vader arrived to offer aid, the Noghri readily accepted, and made Vader their Lord and Savior. However, Palpatine had arranged that the decon droids sent to the planet would continue to poison it by planting modified kholm grass. This modified grass would choke out all other vegetation, while making it appear that the planet could still support life. When Princess Leia and Chewbacca discovered the plot following the downfall of the Empire, they quickly worked with the Noghri to remedy the situation. After the deception of Darth Vader and the Emperor was made apparent to the Noghri, they quickly joined the New Republic. However, all efforts to restore the planet's broken ecosystem turned out to be futile, as the once-green world was incapable of recovering. The Noghri eventually relocated to the planet Wayland, leaving Honoghr for dead. It is the fourth planet in the Honoghr system and has three natural satellites. The system is located near Kessel and Fwillsving. Honoghr has a rotation of 23 hours, and its orbit lasts about 352 local days.

 

Formos
This planet was located in the Outer Rim Territories, near the planet Kessel and the Maw. It was a typical backwater planet, although its proximity to Kessel made it a haven for spice smugglers.

 

Garrison Moon
This is the single moon that orbits the planet Kessel. The Empire established a garrison station there, which was later taken over by Moruth Doole. The moon has a normal day of 13 standard hours, and orbits Kessel's sun every 644 local days.

 

Karedda
This planet is the third world in the Kessel System, and is too far removed from the inner two and the star, Kessa, to received much sunlight. Thus, Karedda is a frozen wasteland. Its orbit has been decaying, due to its proximity to the Maw during part of its orbital path, and will probably be swallowed by the black holes.

 

Kessa
This blue-white star is the primary solar body in the Kessel System.

 

Kessel Station
This space station orbitted Kessel, and provided a base from which the Empire could monitor the prison facilities, during the height of the New Order.

 

Lowickan Asteroid Belt
This region of space debris was the only known source of Lowickan firegems. It was located in the Pa'Lowick System, near Kessel.

 

Senna
This was the first planet in the Kessel System, and was a smoldering, boiling rock. Note that the Wizards of the Coast Planet Hoppers feature names this planet Salvo.

Bormea Sector

 

Bormea Sector
This Core area made up one half of the Ringali Shell. It was ruled by Imperial Moff Jamson Caglio during the Galactic Civil War. The Perlemian Trade Route intersects the Hydian Way in this sector.

 

Chandrila
This star was the central body of the Chandrila System, located in the Bormea Sector.

 

Chandrila
The homeworld of Mon Mothma and Dev Sibwarra, Chandrila is a forested world broken by grassy plains and urban centers. A naturally beautiful world, Chandrila has two continents surrounded by vast oceans. Located in the Bormea Sector of the Core Systems, it was one of the few worlds that openly opposed Palpatine's New Order. When Mon Mothma defected from the New Order and formed the Alliance, there was no immediate retaliation on Chandrila, although tariffs and taxes grew over the years until the inhabitants began anticipating it. The birthrate among the native human population was lower than that of te rest of the galaxy, and so children were considered very special to them. According to Rebellion, Chandrila is located in Sesswenna Sector.

 

Corulag
This planet, the primary world in the Corula System, was locatded in the Deep Core's Bormea Sector. It is the primary planet in the Corulag System, and is a temperate world covered with forests and plains. A satellite of the Academy is located in the capital city of Curamalle. The planet's economy was maintained because of its position, located along the Perlemian Trade Route, as well as the presence of the Academy buildings. In many respects, Corulag was one of the most cosmopolitan worlds of the Empire.

 

Corulus
This star was the central body of the Coruus System, located in the Bormea Sector of the galaxy.

 

Bormea System
This star system was a major stop-over point for transport ships carrying passengers to and from Coruscant.

 

Ringali Shell   
Named for the Ringali Nebula which fills its boundaries, the Ringali Shell was an area of the galaxy that contains space in the Core Worlds outward to the Colonies region. It encompassed Darpa and Bormea Sectors, and served as the wellspring of the Perlemian Trade Route.

 

Brentaal
This dry planet has eight continents surrounded by salty oceans. It was located at the intersection of the Perlemian Trade Route and the Hydian Way, and was the fourth planet in the Brentaal System. A commercial world, Brentaal's economic and political life was run by the noble families of the planet's ruling Houses. During the New Order, the Houses were overseen by Imperial Governor Jerrod Maclain. The planet was liberated from Imperial control shortly after the Battle of Endor by Rogue Squadron, in a conflict that became known as the Battle of Brentaal. The planet was not known as a tourist location, mainly because its atmosphere was once heavily polluted. Decades of environmental reconstruction restored the atmosphere, but it maintained a natural odor of methane that was unusual to off-worlders.

 

Ruusan
This planet, located in the Colonies region of the galaxy, was the site of the decisive battle between Lord Kaan and the Brotherhood of Darkness and Lord Hoth and the Army of Light. The struggle, known as the Battle of Ruusan, ended with both armies being obliterated by the Sith thought bomb. Only one being survived, the Sith Lord Darth Bane. Much of the planet's surface was destroyed by the intense Force battles waged by the combatants, and the damage took many centuries to repair itself. By the time of the New Order, Ruusan was a forgotten world which served as the base of operations for many independent spacers and merchants. It was orbited by three moons, known as the Triplets. In the years that followed the Battle of Ruusan, an unusual form of sentient life evolved on the planet. Resembling large, rubbery balls, the natives had specialized flaps of skin that allowed them to catch the wind and help change the direction of their movements. A collection of tentacles were held close their bodies when in motion, but could be unfurled for use in catching food and for stopping their movements. While these bouncing creatures could understand languages, their only form of communication was written, using their tentacles to manipulate a stylus to scribe words in the sand. Note that the Power of the Jedi Sourcebook claims Ruusan was located in the Mid Rim.

 

New Hast

The planet now known as New Hast was discovered several decades ago in a little traveled region of Bormea Sector by the Hast family. The Hast family founded a monarchy and began attempts to develop themselves into a super race of humans. The land was rich and resourceful, but the native inhabitants vicious. The Hast family attempted to "aid" the peoples across the river from their new capital, Herzelaid, and were greeted with violence conflict between the two groups continues to this day.

 

The peoples of Hast maintain only limited communication with the rest of the galaxy and are aided in that endeavor by the planet's off the beten track location.

Darpa Sector

 

Darpa Sector
This area of the galaxy was located in the Core worlds, on the border between the Core and the Colonies region.

 

1B6/Green
This was an Imperial Bavos-II space platform located in Darpa Sector during the Galactic Civil War. It was positioned near the Ringali Nebula and the border with Bormea Sector, where it protected both sectors and monitored illegal traffic out of Starforge Station.

 

Esseles
This planet was never officially overtaken by the Empire, although COMPNOR maintained the local political party and the Empire seeded the local police. Esseles is located in the Darpa Sector, one of the "younger: regions of the Core Worlds. It was once a very prosperous world in the Sector, with many industries specializing in high-tech research and development in hypernautics and hyperdrive engine manufacturing. However, it lost ground to other worlds during the decline of the Old Republic and the institution of the New Order. Under the leadership of President Ralle, the planet suffered through its worst economic shortage shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and was eventually placed under Imperial control by Governor Takel.

 

Essess
This star was the central body of the Essesia System, located in the Darpa Sector of the galaxy.

 

Lenniera
This Core world was located in the Darpa Sector, and was the site of Fitz Roi's family estate. Fitz Roi later moved his own base of operations to Esseles.

 

Nopces Prime
This was the primary world in the Nopces System, a minor star system is located on the Mid-Rim edge of Darpa Sector, along the Hydian Way.

 

Rhinnal
This planet, located in the Darpa Sector, has recently emerged from an ice age. It remains covered with glaciers and rivers of ice. Habitation of the planet continues, however, and it is known as a business education center. During the last years of the Old Republic, the Jedi Knights established and expanded a training and medical center on Rhinnal, near the city of Rhire. The fourth planet in the Rhinnal System, Rhinnal was orbited by a pair of moons. The average day on Rhinnal lasted 27 standard hours, while its year encompassed 357 local days.

 

Ringali Shell   
Named for the Ringali Nebula which fills its boundaries, the Ringali Shell was an area of the galaxy that contains space in the Core Worlds outward to the Colonies region. It encompassed Darpa and Bormea Sectors, and served as the wellspring of the Perlemian Trade Route.

 

Alderaan
This planet's human inhabitants were among the most peaceful beings in the galaxy. They were in continual harmony with the world around them, and chose to build their cities on top of sandstone bluffs and on stilts in the shallow seas. Their towering cities were built this way so that they wouldn't trample the grass or destroy the seas. The inhabitants of the planet catalogued over 8,000 species of grasses on the plains, and more than that in species of flowers. At the age of seventeen, an Alderaanian was considered an adult. It was a well-known custom that the adult members of Alderaan's society never cut their hair, but allowed it to grow into long tresses. Alderaan was a staunch supporter of the Old Republic, and many of its inhabitants served in the armed forces. Following the Clone Wars and the widespread destruction caused by it, the government of Alderaan outlawed all weapons. They placed all weapons aboard a transport ship and sent the ship out on a never-ending series of random hyperspace jumps. The homeworld of the Organa family, Alderaan's role in galactic politics took a detour during the later years of the Old Republic. As Palpatine continued to gain power, the Organas began organizing a resistance to his Presidency. With the implementation of the New Order, Alderaan became one of the primary supporters of the newly-formed Alliance to Restore the Republic. However, the outspoken dissatisfaction with Palpatine's rule led to the destruction of the planet. When Leia Organa was captured aboard the Tantive IV over Tatooine, she was taken to Grand Moff Tarkin for questioning. Tarkin tried to obtain information from her, but she proved too strong. Even when Tarkin threatened to destroy Alderaan with the new Death Star, Leia lied to him about the location of the Alliance's base. Tarkin took no chances, however, and ordered the destruction of the planet. Alderaan was blown to pieces just before the Battle of Yavin, and all life on the planet was destroyed. Some 60,000 natives survived because they were off-world at the time, and were granted a unique status within the Alliance, as well as the New Republic.

Lambda Sector

 

Lambda Sector
This area of the galaxy was ruled by Imperial Moff Par Lankin, who set up his own little empire there following the Battle of Endor.

 

Rintonne System
This star system was located in Lambda Sector. It was controlled by Imperial Governor Serdis Tount during the early years of the New Republic.

 

Rintonne
This planet was the primary world in the Rintonne System.

 

Fondor
A planet located in the Mid Rim Territories, Fondor is famous for its shipyards and its military importance. It is located a short distance from a number of trade routes which run from the Core, the Colonies, and the Mid-Rim out to the Outer Rim. Fondor was industrialized millennia before the Battle of Yavin, and much of its surface was scarred from mining and excavation. The droid Bollux was first activated there, during the days of the Old Republic. After the Empire took control of the shipyards, the Super-class Star Destroyer Executor was built there. Fondor was later liberated from Imperial control and used by the New Republic. Six moons orbited Fondor, all of which were mined for raw ores and materials. Over time, the moons were slowly eroded by mining. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the alien invaders attacked Fondor and its shipyards used suicide bombing runs. Squadrons of coralskippers flung themselves at the orbital facilities, causing untold damage. Fondor itself was leveled by the Yuuzhan Vong, and the system was rendered useless.

 

Thyferra
This planet, located in the Polith System, produced much of the galaxy's bacta. A temperate world with two moons, it is the homeworld of the Vratix race, which discovered how to create bacta from alazhi and kavam. The Vratix shared the secrets of bacta production with their human neighbors, and a healthy business was created as the galaxy realized the healing potential of bacta. The planet had two human factions engaged in bacta production, the Zaltin and Xucphra factions, in addition to the Vratix Ashern faction. The two human factions were chosen by Emperor Palpatine to supply the Empire's bacta, effectively eliminating all competition in the bacta market. The Vratix were relegated to the position of rebellious terrorists, until they petitioned the New Republic for admission as a member race. The Republic was unable to do so without the consent of the native human population, which was under the yoke of Ysanne Isard until she was killed in the Battle of Thyferra. Once free of Imperial domination, Thyferra applied for membership and was accepted. The Vratix then expelled the human leaders of the bacta cartels, and took control of its production for thenselves. The average day on Thyferra lasts just over 21 standard hours.

 

Ruusan
This planet, located in the Colonies region of the galaxy, was the site of the decisive battle between Lord Kaan and the Brotherhood of Darkness and Lord Hoth and the Army of Light. The struggle, known as the Battle of Ruusan, ended with both armies being obliterated by the Sith thought bomb. Only one being survived, the Sith Lord Darth Bane. Much of the planet's surface was destroyed by the intense Force battles waged by the combatants, and the damage took many centuries to repair itself.

Meridian Sector

 

Budpock
A planet in the Chorios Systems. An uneasy truce between Budpock and Ampliquen existed during the early years of the New Republic, which was threatened when Dzym let loose the Death Seed plague on Meridian Sector. Dzym also incited a group of pirates that used the planet as their base, and various skirmishes broke out.

 

Chorios Systems
A group of star systems found in Meridian Sector, the Chorios Systems are a group of star systems clustered close together. Among the stars are Chorios II and the trio of inner stars: Brachnis, Nam, and Pedducis Chorii.

 

Cybloc XII
This twelfth moon of the planet Cybloc was the site of a New Republic Navy fleet base. Much of the personnel and native life was killed there when Dzym and Seti Ashgad released the Death Seed plague on the Meridian Sector. The moon's rotational period very nearly matched that of Cybloc itself, resulting in a day-night cycle which was extremely long.

 

Durren
this planet, located in the Meridian Sector, was the site of the New Republic's primary Naval base in the Sector.

 

Durren Orbital
this space station served as the New Republic's primary Navy shipyard in the Meridian Sector. It was located in orbit around the planet Durren.

 

Elom
Homeworld of the Elomin and Elom races, it is located in the Borderland Regions. The Elomin joined the Alliance in an effort to escape slavery at the hands of the Empire, who sought to force the Elomin to mine lommite for them. It is a cold, barren world without much vegetation. The planet's day is 26 standard hours in length, and its years lasts 406 local days. Note that the galaxy map inside Star Wars Insider, issue 65, indicates that Elom is located in the Outer Rim Territories, between the Meridian and Corporate Sectors.

 

Meridian
This world was the sector capital of the Meridian Sector, and was the homeworld of the Grissmath race. The Grissmaths eventually destroyed themselves and the planet, which is now nothing more than a charred, radioactive wasteland.

 

Nam
This is one of the three stars which center the Chorios Systems in the Meridian Sector.

 

Nam Chorios
This planet, loacted in the Chorios System of the Meridian Sector, was chosen by the Grissmath Dynasty as a penal world some fifty years after a group of colonists fled the Grissmaths in order to be free. The original settlers, as well as the prisoners sent there, discovered that the crystalline rocks of the planet were alive with the Force. When the Force was used on the planet, it created backlashes within the crystals, and ripples of Force lightning sometimes plunged through the canyons at night to expel excees Force energy. When the Grissmaths sent drochs to the planet to ensure the prisoners were killed, the inhabitants and the crystals tried to do everything in their power to keep the drochs from spreading off the planet. It was on this world that Dzym rose to power, enslaving the crystals - known as Spooks - and selling them to Loronar for used in CCIR technologies. When Leia Organa-Solo and Luke Skywalker arrived on the world - Leia to meet with Seti Ashgad, Luke to search for Callista - they discovered the abilities of the Spooks, and managed to depose Dzym and Ashgad. Luke then spent a number of years scouring the galaxy for those Spooks which could be returned to Nam Chorios. Note that the jacket liner of Planet of Twilight refers to this world as Renat Chorios.

 

Nim Drovis   
The New Republic maintained a Sector Medical Hospital and Research Facility on this planet, located in the Meridian Sector. It is a hot, humid world which was little more than a mudball covered with thick growths of fungus.

 

Spangled Veil Nebula
This gaseous formation is located near Exodo II and the gas clouds of Odos, in the Meridian Sector.

 

Yavin
The primary planet in the Yavin system, Yavin was a marginally habitable gas planet with dozens of moons. Three of its moons were inhabitable. The planet measured some 192,478 kilometers in diameter, and the atmosphere which surrounds it had an average depth of 65,000 kilometers. The density of its core gave Yavin a gravity which is 2.74 times the standard of Coruscant, and helped the gas giant to attract so many moons. Despite the intense pressures within the clouds, Yavin supported lifeforms which were thinner than paper but nonetheless alive.

 

Yavin 13
One of three inhabitable moons of Yavin, it was a desert moon which was home to the Gerbs and the Slith.

 

Yavin 4
An inhabitable moon of Yavin, it has a lush, tropical ecology which supports an abundance of life. It was home to the extinct Massassi race, which was subjugated by Exar Kun some 4,000 years before the Battle of Endor. The Massassi built huge temples in the jungles to focus the Dark Side energies Kun commanded. During the Great Sith War, Yavin 4 was were Kun made his final stand, draining the life energies of the Massassi to preserve his spirit despite the death of his flesh. The resulting clash of Force energies sparked huge forest fires that ravaged the jungles. When Ulic Qel-Droma returned several years after the war, the jungles were still barren of life. Over the millennia, however, life did return to the moon, and its jungles flourished. When the Alliance built their first main base, they chose Yavin 4 as an out-of-the-way location. Following the destruction of Alderaan and Princess Leia's rescue from the first Death Star, the Empire discovered the base's location and tried to destroy it. The Alliance's starfighters, led by Luke Skywalker, destroyed the station before it could fire on the moon. However, debris from the first Death Star rained down on Yavin 4 for months, touching off forest fires and laying waste to vast portions of the planet. The destruction was much less than that resulting from the Sith War, and much of the Alliance base remained intact. Later, Mon Mothma and Leia Organa-Solo chose Yavin 4 as the site for Luke Skywalker's Jedi praxeum. The average day on Yavin 4 lasts 24 standard hours, and it circles Yavin three times every Coruscant standard year. The moon has four major land masses separated by six interconnected oceans. Note that I, Jedi indicates that Yavin 4 has its own moon. Also note that Yavin Four is described as the base of operations for the new government forming out of the Alliance, following the death of Emperor Palpatine at Endor, in The Glove of Darth Vader. The Lost City of the Jedi claims that, thousands of years before the Galactic Civil War, Yavin 4 was a barren, cold ball of rock. The ancient Jedi created the lush, tropical environment, with a 6-month dry/6-month wet seasonal cycle, by building a weather and climate control center in the Lost City. They Jedi then programmed the caretaker droids to maintain the weather programs until they are told not to. The moon was later burnt extensively by Trioculus, in an attempt to locate the Lost City of the Jedi. Yavin 4 remained untouched for several decades, until the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. In an effort to wipe out the Jedi, they attacked Yavin 4 and seized control of the moon, reforming it to serve as a Shaper base.

 

Yavin 8
One of three inhabitable moons of Yavin, it has a rocky, mountainous terrain which is home to a number of species of grazers and the Melodie People. It measured 11,400 kilometers in diameter, and orbited Yavin at an average distance of 560,342 kilometers. It orbited Yavin once every 1.14 Coruscant years, and its day encompassed 21 standard hours.

Antemeridian Sector

 

Antemeridian Sector
This area of the galaxy, adjacent to the Meridian Sector, was allied with the Empire even after the Battle of Endor. Following the fall of Emperor Palpatine, the sector was held in Imperial sway by Moff Getelles, until he was defeated by New Republic forces in the Chorios Systems.

 

Antemeridias
This planet was the sector capital of Antemeridian Sector, and the base of operations for Moff Getelles.

 

Korriban
This remote planet was the seat of the ancient Sith race. Located across the galaxy from Cinnagar and Koros Minor, it was unknown to the Old Republic before the rise of Naga Sadow. It was to Korriban that the ancient Dark Jedi fled, after they were exiled by the Jedi Knights. Korriban was a desolate world which, under the pall of Sith magic, became more hellish and dangerous. The native life there was twisted by the Dark Side, and the ghosts of Sith Dark Lords roamed everywhere. The Sith Lords erected huge palaces and burial complexes, which honored not only the dead Lords but the current magicians as well. Exar Kun was led here by Freedon Nadd's spirit, in an effort to recover certain Sith manuscripts. The Emperor Palpatine often visited Korriban, to help him center himself in the Dark Side of the Force.

Taldot Sector

 

Taldot Sector
This sector of the galaxy was located in the Mid Rim. It contained the planet Balamak, and was a vital communications center during the height of the Clone Wars. The Old Republic destroyed an experimental jamming system being developed by the Separatists on Balamak, shortly after the onset of the Clone Wars.

 

Balamak
This planet was located in Taldot Sector, and provided much of the sector's agricultural resources. The Confederacy of Independent States, also known as the Separatists, established an experimental communications jamming system on the planet during the early stages of the Clone Wars, but the facility was quickly neutralized by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Adar Tallon, and the forces of the Old Republic.

 

Stronghold
This cold, rocky world, located in the remote Taldot Sector, was an Alliance safeworld during the Galactic Civil War. Its surface was a rocky collection of mountains and chasms, and was wracked by intense storms. The Alliance formed its base there by gouging out the stone and creating a network of caverns and tunnels. The planet itself had no strategic value, but the families of front-line Alliance soldiers were secreted here during wartime. The transport ship Celestial was bound there when it was overtaken by the prisoners it was transporting. The ship was lost in Otherspace, where the Charon were able to discover the planet's location. The Charon, under the command of the former Grand Moff Ravik, tried to destroy the planet, but were thwarted in their efforts by Alliance agents. The Charon Starship Desolate was nearly destroyed on the planet. There was no known sentient life on Stronghold, and very little plant or animal life survived on the rocky surface.

 

Obroa-skai
Primary planet in the Obroa-skai system, is holds a strategic position in the Borderlands. It has not aligned itself with either the Empire or the New Republic. The Obroans have created a huge repository of information from every corner of the galaxy, but its location and access methods are not given freely. Grand Admiral Thrawn raids the planet's central computer in order to determine the location of the planet Myrkr, as well as to spread the New Republic's forces thin prior to the Battle of Sluis Van. At the same time, Thrawn attacked an Elomin supply convoy that was passing near the planet. Its primary ecology is terrestrial, with vast tundras, frozen deserts, and tall mountains. Its day lasts 26 standard hours, and its years lasts 456 local days. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Obroa-skai was devastated in an unexpected from the aliens. Much of the information stored in the libraries and databases on the planet was lost, although hardcopies of certain references were smugglde out before the attack. The Yuuzhan Vong tried to decipher the information they found, but were unable to obtain accurately decrypted information.

 

Wayland
A primitive, backwater planet, chosen by Emperor Palpatine as a hiding place for his high-technology projects, such as the cloaking device and his Spaarti cylinders. It was originally discovered during the Old Republic's second expansion wave, but was lost from the records for many years. The colonists were forced to survive with little or no technology, and unknown to them, no chance of rescue or resupply. A forested planet not unlike Yavin 4, Wayland's treetop canopy was divided into two unique levels. Its day lasted 23 standard hours, and its year consumed 353 local days. The planet was home to the Psadan and Myneyrsh races, both of which lack any higher technology. Just before his death, Palpatine placed the mad clone Joruus C'baoth on the planet to guard the technology stored in Mount Tantiss. He ruled there with the cruel sense of justice of a Dark Jedi until Luke Skywalker was called to the planet. In the swirl of events surrounding Grand Admiral Thrawn's death, Mount Tantiss was destroyed and C'baoth killed. In the years that followed, the Noghri were relocated to Wayland. The New Republic discovered that it would be nearly impossible to restore Honoghr, and gave the Noghri a chance to rebuild on Wayland. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, they subjugated the planet Wayland and used it as a breeding ground for amphistaffs and other bio-organic weaponry. Much of the planet's crust and mantle was consumed by Chom-Vrone, huge, worm-like creatures that transformed raw materials into superheated plasma.

 

Myrkr
A haven for smugglers and other not-quite-law-abiding groups, this planet was located in a system near the Borderlands Regions. It is the indigenous home of the ysalamiri and the vornskrs. Much of its native plantlife stores metals as part of their existence, and the presence of these metals often dampens the effectiveness of scanners and communicators. The planet was first settled about 300 PE by the Old Republic, and remained unnoticed before then. Myrkr has a 24-hour day, and a 324-local-day year. Years after the defeat of Grand Admiral Thrawn, Myrkr was attacked and overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong. A worldship was inerted into orbit around the planet, in which voxyn were bred for use against the Jedi Knights. The planet is referred to as "Myrkyr" in the early chapters of the Heir to the Empire comic series from Dark Horse, as well as in Force Heretic III: Reunion.

Coruscant Sector

 

Coruscant
located at galactic coordinates (0,0,0), this planet in the Core Worlds was home to the Old Republic. Most xenoarchaeologists believe that the human race evolved on Coruscant, which was also the homeworld of the Taung and the Zell races. It was renamed Imperial Center by Emperor Palpatine. When the New Republic was born, the planet was renamed to Coruscant. Located some 10,000 light-years from the actual galactic core, Coruscant measured some 12,240 kilometers in diamater, and had two moons and orbited a small white sun. The planet's entire landmass has been covered - over the thousands of generations spanning galactic history - by multiple levels of the buildings that make up Imperial City. The oceans which once covered part of the planet's surface had been drained and stored in vast, underground caverns for eventual reuse. Several of these immense skyscrapers reach over 6,000 meters into the atmosphere. This means that there is little land available for growing food, and no natural rivers or lakes to provide water. To solve the dilemma of feeding and watering millions of inhabitants, many of Coruscant's architects build self-contained ecosystems into their buildings. Engineers have developed a series of huge pipes through which polar ice water is pumped to the cities. Nearly everything on the planet is recyclable, from clothing to packaging and machinery. One problem with a cityworld like Coruscant was that it generated incredible amounts of carbon dioxide, so atmosphereic dampeners were placed in orbit to reactively remove it. It was the center of all the Old Republic's activities, and helped describe Galactic Standard time. The standard hour and year are marked by Coruscant's local hour and year. The normal Coruscant day is divided into 24 hours, and its year lasts 368 local days. According to Rebellion, Coruscant is located in Sesswenna Sector. The Imperial Senate was convened there. When Palpatine assumed control of the Senate and the rest of the government, he established that Coruscant would remain the center of his Empire. He began a massive work effort to shape Coruscant to his desires, including installing a large number of surveillance systems. Following the Battle of Endor, Mon Mothma moved the New Republic onto Coruscant and again re-established the center of the Republic there. This came after the planet was liberated from Ysanne Isard, and the New Republic overcame the threat of the Krytos virus. Unbeknownst to all, Isard's infamous Lusankya prison facility was hidden in the Super-class Star Destroyer Lusankya, which was buried beneath Imperial City. Following the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Imperial Inner Circle began attacking Coruscant in an effort to regain the center of the galaxy for the Empire. This attack was driven back just before the Emperor was reborn as a clone, but the damage to the planet's resources was horrendous. Also, the immediate space surrounding the planet was littered with starship wreckage for many years to follow. Once the reborn Emperor was destroyed, the New Republic began cleaning up the planet to make it more presentable as the center of the galaxy. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Coruscant's defenses were augmented by the addition of a shell of orbital space mines. While these protected the planet, they forced all traffic to follow a handful of travel bands, causing massive traffic jams in the space over the planet. This ring of mines failed to stop the Yuuzhan Vong, some two years after their initial invasion, when the aliens used suicide bombers to eliminate the mines before launching an all-out attack on the planet. Borsk Fey'lya was forced to cede control of Coruscant to the Yuuzhan Vong, and the New Republic fled the system in disarray. When the Republic's forces were finally defeated, the city lights of Coruscant went out for the first time in many millennia. The Yuuzhan Vong then destroyed much of the planet's surface, using dovin basals to drag skyhooks and orbital satellites down and crashing them into the planet. This served two purposes: it eliminated much of the orbital technology, and it caused a widespread psychological fear into the planet's survivors. Within weeks, much of Coruscant was overgrown with fungus and algae. Those New Republic citizens who survived the initial attacks were faced several bleak alternatives: dying of starvation, as much of the food production system was destroyed; dying of thirst, since no open water sources were to be found; being killed over a cache of food or water; or dying at the hands of the Yuuzhan Vong. Within months, a large portion of the population was dead or dying, and massive Vongforming efforts were under way. The planet's largest moon was destroyed so that it's debris could assist in the reformation of the planet's surface. Immense dovin basals were used to drag Coruscant into a tighter orbit around its star, creating a more tropical atmopshere. Other dovin basals moved the remaining three moons into a new, complex orbit. Vast amounts of material, displaced during the destruction of the cities, was thrown into nearspace and allowed to form a ring, assisted by the tidal pull of the three moons. This ring of debris resembled a braided rainbow when seen from the surface, and was known to the Yuuzhan Vong as The Bridge. A dhuryam World Brain was installed deep in the planet's crust, and speciallized mosses and lichens were used to break down duracrete and other building materials. The Yuuzhan Vong had remade Courscant in the image of their long-lost homeworld, Yuuzhan'tar.

 

Aaghra
This ball of molten rock was the innermost planet of the Zug System.

 

Aargau
A planet of some importance to the Empire, Aargau was known throughout the galaxy for its banks. It was known to many beings as the Jewel of the Zug System. By the time of the Clone Wars, Aargau was under the control of the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Much of the planet's surface was dominated by a huge pyramid, which was divided into seven distinct and vast levels that had been built one atop the other for thousands of years. All visitors reported to the uppermost level, which was the smallest and easiest to secure. Access to the lower levels was granted on an as-needed basis to those citizens and visitors with the correct credentials. The seventh level, known as the Undercity, was a lawless area where any number of illegal and criminal activites could be found. In order to ensure that individuals remained on the correct levels, specialized lasers tinted the lighting of each level to a unique color. Sometime before the Battle of Yavin, Aargau was the site of a week-long conference between Baron Tagge and the Corporate Sector companies. The result of the meeting was the formation of the Corporate Sector Authority. Aargau remained neutral during the Galactic Civil War, although Princess Leia Organa and Darth Vader played an intricate game of politics there. After the Battle of Endor, Aargau fortified itself behind planetary shields and perimeter warships. Aargau was the third planet of the Zug System, and was orbited by a single moon. The average day on the planet lasted 24 standard hours, and its year encompassed 364 local days, giving Aargau a similar calendar to that of Coruscant.

 

Azameen
This arid, terrestrial world was the fourth planet of the Zug System. It was located just inside the asteroid belt known as The Coins of Gauha, and was orbited by a pair of moons.

 

Faargau
This gas giant was the seventh planet in the Zug System. It was orbited by 14 moons.

 

Laazrau
This gas giant was the eighth planet in the Zug System. It was orbited by 13 moons.

This ball of frozen rock and ice was the ninth, and outermost, planet of the Zug System. A single moon orbited the planet.

 

Urazuun
This gas giant was the sixth planet in the Zug System. It was orbited by some 38 moons.

 

Zauhu
This gas giant was the fifth planet in the Zug System, orbiting just outside the asteroid belt known as the Coins of Gauha. It was orbited by at least 47 known moons.

 

Zaur
This planet, covered with oceans of liquid methane, was the second world in the Zug System.

 

Zug   
This star was the central body in the Zug System, located in the Core Worlds.

Gordian Reach

 

Gordian Reach
It was here that Kaj Nedmak had to dump a cargo of goods he was transporting to Torque for Bwahl the Hutt, after being stopped by an Imperial blockade.

 

Junction
Valance the Hunter nearly captured Luke Skywalker on this planet, a deep-space outpost that provided a number of resupply centers outside the reach of the Empire. Luke had traveled to Junction on a mission to obtain repair parts for the Alliance's pool of droids, especially his own astromech unit, R2-D2. Junction itself was located at the intersection of the Hydian Way with the Gordian Reach and the Thesme Trace.

 

Krylon   
This planet was located in the Gordian Reach.

 

Thesme Trace   
This interstellar location was located near the Gordian Reach, along the Hydian Way.

Aparo Sector

 

Aparo Sector
This area of the galaxy, with the Wyl Sector, formed the border of the Corporate Sector. It was ruled by Moff Wyrrhem.

 

Lur
A planet very close to the Corporate Sector, Lur had a deep atmospheric ionization layer, which make planetfall a hazardous trip. It had a cold, harsh climate, with a stormy weather system. Its gravity was slightly greater than galactic standard. During the years leading up to the Clone Wars, a theraputic cloning center was established on the planet, to generate replacement organs for individuals suffering from life-threatening diseases. Much to the dismay of these individuals, the onset of the Clone Wars brought about a halt to any non-military cloning, under Senate decree E49D139.41.

Wyl Sector

 

Wyl Sector
One of the borders of the Corporate Sector, along with the Aparo Sector.

 

Almania
This temperate world is the primary planet in the Outer Rim's Almanian System. The planet supported two sentient races, the Je'Har and humankind. The Je'Har were a powerful people, and subjugated many human tribes. Among the humans that suffered under the Je'Har were the family of Dolph, who later adopted the name Kuellar and destroyed the Je'Har in revenge. Almania has three moons, one of which is called Pydyr, and was a rival of its parent world. Almania had a meager economy under the yolk of the Je'Har, while Pydyr prospered.

 

Trian
The planet which was home to the Trianii race, Trian bordered on the Corporate Sector. The Corporate Sector Authority later decided to annex the planet, and revoked its charter without any discussion. The Trianii opposed it, but were quieted by the Corporate Sector Authority's less-than-admirable tactics. After the Battle of Endor, however, the Trianii were able to retake their homeworld and drive the CSA out of their systems.

 

Vaynai
This planet, located near the end of the Perlemian Trade Route between the Corporate Sector and the Tion Cluster, was known for its diverse aquaculture. Its exotic islands formed the basis of a thriving tourism industry that catered to the rich and famous during the height of the New Order, while its remote location and the isolation of its landmasses made it a haver for smugglers and criminals. The first settlers on the planet made their homes on the Vaynai Archipelago, establishing aquaculture as a way to survive. As the settlers prospered, the leaders became wealthier because of the labor of the masses. Rather than have their paradise diminished by this "rabble", the leaders banished the workers to the caves near the shore, keeping the lush highlands for themselves. Because ground space was at a premium on the planet, the leaders chose to enforce their airspace first, and were known to shoot first and aask questions later of any starship captain who didn't follow the rules.

Glythe Sector

 

Glythe Sector
Location of the Noghri commandos' Valrar base.

 

Valrar
This planet was the home port of the Hab Camber, one of the starship IDs used by Talon Kaarde's people. It was also the site of a Noghri commando base. It is located in the Glythe Sector.

 

Umgul
A moist, cool world, Umgul is located in the Mid Rim. It is shrouded in dense fog and low-hanging clouds. Gambling is the primary economic force, and Umgul is the home of the Umgullian blob races. Its average day lasts 25 standard hours, and its year encompasses 361 local days.

 

Naboo
This unusual planet is noted for the fact that it lacks a solid mantle and molten core. Instead, the planet is a ball of softer metals riddled with caverns and small tunnels. This allows the planet retain copious amounts of water, giving the surface a swampy environment which belies the true extent of the depths its oceans can reach. The small sections of solid ground are marked by wide, rolling plains. Hidden below the porous rock of the planet is a core of almost pure plasma energy. The human inhabitants of the planet, descended from the Grizmallt colonists of the Beneficent Tasia fleet, learned to harness this plasma energy and use it to provide limitless electric power. It was the homeworld of the Gungan race, as well as the human settlers who called themselves the Naboo. Naboo was the third and primary world of the Naboo System, and was orbited by two small moons. An Outer Rim world, Naboo was located some 34,000 light-years from the galactic core.

Cadavine Sector

 

Dorvalla
This planet was the Imperial captial of Cadavine Sector, during the height of the New Order.

 

Gall
This moon of the gas giant Zhar was the site of an Imperial enclave during the Galactic Civil War. The enclave was the home base for the Imperial fleet which patrolled Cadavine Serctor. The southern hemisphere of the moon is ravaged by cyclonic storms. It housed a pair of Star Destroyers and their full complement of TIE Fighters. Lando Calrissian discovered that Boba Fett had taken Han Solo there, after his flight from Bespin, to get repairs made to Slave I after a run-in with IG-88 over Tatooine. Lando, Leia Organa, Chewbacca, and Dash Rendar tried to intercept the bounty hunter and recover the body of Han Solo, but were unsuccessful.

 

Zhar
This gas giant was orbitted by two moons, Gall and Kile. It is located in the far Rim Systems. Secrets of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire notes that Zhar is in the same system as Tatooine. This contradicts Galaxy Guide 7: Mos Eisley, but might indicate that Zhar is located in the Arkanis Sector. Also note that the Shadows of the Empire Sourcebook names this planet Zahr, and places it in Cadavine Sector.

 

Alzoc III
An Imperial world during the Galactic Civil War, Alzoc III is the homeworld of the Talz. It is known for its beautiful pearls, even though the planet is mostly covered by cold, frozen plains and hard-packed snow. It has no known moons. It was removed from the Galactic Registry by the Empire in order to protect a perfect source of slaves, and was replaced early in the reign of Leia Organa Solo as Chief of State of the New Republic.

Roche Sector

 

Relarr System
This planetary system was located near the Roche Asteroid field.

 

Roche
A planet near the Roche Asteroid Field. It was the base for Ackbar's Project Shantipole.

 

Roche Asteroid Field
A sector of the galaxy that contains the homeworlds of the Verpine, the Barabels, and the Kubaz. It also is a breeding site for mynocks and space slugs. It is a collection of asteroid belts orbiting a small yellow sun.

 

Roche G42
An asteroid in the Roche Asteroid Field, is was the site of a Verpine colony.

 

Roche System
Another name for the Roche Asteroid Fields.

 

Shantipole
One of the Roche asteroids inhabited by the Verpine. It was the site of a research station that developed the B-Wing.

 

Va'art
This moon, located near the Roche Asteroid Field, was believed to be the homeworld of the Taozin.

 

Barab   
The red dwarf star that is the primary sun to Barab I.

 

Barab I
Homeworld of the Barabels, it is very near to its primary star, Barab. Barab I orbits Barab at less than 125 million kilometers. Thus, its surface is constantly being bombarded by all sorts of radiation. This, coupled with the intense heat from the star, causes the planet's water to quickly evaporate, creating a deadly, humid surface environment. The Barabels have adapted by living in the caves the riddle the planet, and all forms of life on Barab I were cold-blooded, despite its proximity to its primary star. The average day on Barab I lasted about 60 standard hours. During the latter stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Barab I was attacked and razed by the alien invaders. All life was erased from the planet's surface, and the Barabel population was taken away for slavery.

 

Slayn
One of the Verpine colonies which helped Ackbar develop the B-Wing starfighter.

 

Korpil
A Verpine colony, one of the builders of the B-Wing starfighter.

 

Ku'Bakai
This blue giant star is the primary sun in the Ku'Bakai system, home to the planet Kubindi and three other, life-supporting worlds. The Kubaz used these worlds (the sixth, eighth, and eleventh) as insect farms which cater to their every taste. The first four planets in the system are sterile worlds, having been scoured by the intense solar flares given off by the star in a brief series of pulses millennia ago. These flares are well-known to astronomers for their beauty.

 

Kubindi
This planet is the homeworld of the Kubaz, and is the fifth planet orbiting the sun Ku'Bakai. Kubindi orbits very close to Ku'Bakai, and the frequent solar flares raze the planet's surface, destroying much of the plant and animal life. The primary survivors of the flares were insects. There are millions of species on the planet today. Other creatures which managed to survive had to evolve into insect-eaters, like the Kubaz. They now inhabit the 6th, 8th, and 11th worlds in the Ku'Bakai system, with only the poor or disgraced Kubaz still clinging to existence on Kubindi. Kubindi is located in the Calaron Sector. The day on Kubindi lasts 48 standard hours, and it year encompasses 420 local days. The planet was overtaken by the Yuuzhan Vong some twenty-six years after the Battle of Endor, following in the wake of Falleen and Rodia. Kyp Durron and his group of vigilantes, Kyp's Dozen, held off the aliens long enough for every spaceworthy ship to flee the planet. It was believed that the Kubaz were attractive targets to the Yuuzhan Vong because of their history of genetic manuipulation of insects. Note that this planet is named Kubindin in Secrets of Tatooine.

Jaminere
This planet served as the capital world of the Allied Tion sector. It was part of Xim the Despot's empire in the early years of galactic history, although it was never part of the Tion Hegemony.

 

Lianna
An industrial world located in the Allied Tion sector of the galaxy, Lianna has been under the rule of outside forces for much of its history. It was originally conquered by the Tion warlords, then was controlled by the Kingdom of Barseg as the Old Republic brought peace to the galaxy. The Senate basically ignored Lianna, though, and it continued to be ruled as a traditional territory. Some three centuries before the Battle of Yavin, the Old Republic Senate decided that the planet, under the rule of Barseg, was not being allowed to flourish. The Senate took control, but the planet continued to be misused as an industrial center. Two hundred years later, Seinar Technologies established its presence there, but the company was taken over by Kerred Santhe in a hostile maneuver that created Santhe/Sienar Technologies. Santhe moved the company's headquarters to Lianna. Under the control of Kerred's granddaughter, Valles Santhe, the planet remained independent, although it was a supporter of the New Order. The Lady Santhe quickly instituted home rule following the Battle of Endor. The New Republic respected the decision, but surviving Imperial forces launched a series of reprisal attacks on the planet. The Lady Santhe threatened stop building TIE Fighters if the attacks didn't stop. The threat, plus some well-placed bribes, allowed Lianna to remain neutral by special charter of the Empire. Lianna has 1 moon, a day which lasts 22 standard hours, and a year which encompasses 370 local days.

 

Lorrad
This planet, located in the Allied Tion sector, the inhabitants of Lorrad were enslaved early in the history of the galaxy and remained in servitude throughout the history of the Tion.

Tion Hegemony

 

Tion Hegemony
Known as the Ancient and Honorable Union of the Tion Hegemony, this sector of the Tion is a collection of 27 star systems found among the furthest reaches of the galaxy. It is far from the Core Worlds, but embraces some of the oldest and most ancient human civilizations in the galaxy. During the early years of the Old Republic, the Tion Hegemony was ruled by Xim the Despot. Before Xim, the Livien League controlled the Hegemony. As the Republic grew and the Tion Hegemony was "liberated," the sector saw a decline it its fortunes. However, the Hegeomny remained the breadbasket of the Tion, providing foodstuffs for all three of the Tion's sectors. Han Solo worked for Grigmin in the Tion Hegemony at one time. The Hegemony, being so far from Imperial control, was a home to many out-of-work smugglers, swindlers, and con artists who were trying to improve their lots in life. Note that Agents of Chaos: Hero's Trial states that the outer reaches of Hegemony were made up of 175 planets.

 

Brigia
A planet in the Tion Hegemony, and the site of a fledgling university which was part of the University of Rudrig. It has a fairly sensitive ecosystem, and all incoming ships require phase-one decontamination before landing. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Brigia was overrun during the second wave of attacks.

 

Cadinth
This desert world is located within the Tion Hegemony. Like nearby Lianna, Cadinth's natural beauty was destroyed by intense industrialization. Sprinkled throughout the deserts are the ruins of prior civilizations.

 

Dellalt
A planet located within the Tion Hegemony, Dellalt was at one time part of a strategic cluster of pre-Old Republic Expansionist growth. It was during this period that the planet came under the watchful eye of Xim the Despot, who hoped to use it as his base of operations when he began his galactic conquest. Dellalt became the primary jewel in Xim's empire. He built huge vaults on the planet's southern continent, and the starship Queen of Ranroon was en-route to deliver a huge shipment of war materiel when Xim fell at the Third Battle of Vontor. The Queen was hidden in the mountains near the vaults, until it was discovered by Han Solo and Badure. Since then, a large mining operation has flourished on Dellalt, but it started to stagnate under the ownership of J'uoch and R'all. As with much of the Tion Hegemony during the rule of Emperor Palpatine, Dellalt was virtually forgotten. Dellalt has two natural satellites, and is home to the Swimming People, a race of aquatic sauropteroids. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Dellalt was overrun during the second wave of attacks.

 

Risban
This planet was located in the Tion Hegemony.

 

Rudrig
A planet in the Tion Hegemony, site of the Hegemony's only true institution for higher learning. The University of Rudrig was in the process of expanding to other planets when Han Solo was on Saheelindeel. It is the primary planet in the Rudrig System.

 

Saheelindeel
A planet in the Tion Hegemony which, like many others in the Hegemony, was a backward world trying to play catch-up with the technological growth of the rest of the galaxy. The planet was overrun during the Yuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy.

Quence Sector

 

Quence Sector
This area of the galaxy is found within the Outer Rim Territories.

 

Elshandruu Pica
This Outer Rim world, located in Quence Sector, is a haven for casinos, like Margath's on Elshandruu Pica. Its day lasts 26 standard hours, and the casinos there are rumored to stay open for 27 hours. The planet has three moons, two of which are ivory in color, and the third is blood red.

 

Empartheca System   
This star system was located in Quence Sector.

 

Suarbi System
Located in Quence Sector, this planetary system was where Leonia Tavira and the Invidious ended up after jumping away from a battle with New Republic warships. It was on the moon Suarbi 7/5 that she discovered the Jensaarai and the Saarai-kaar after shooting the moon's incompetant Imperial govnernor.

 

Xiunsrus
This planet is located in the Quence Sector. It was the base of operations for the Bloodsniffers swoop gang.

 

Baltizaar
The Jedi Knights were dispatched to resolve a dispute on this planet, shortly before the Battle of Naboo. The people of Baltizaar had been attacked by the Bando Gora cult, and pleaded with the Senate for assistance. Count Dooku refused to lead the mission, claiming that the Jedi were being used indiscriminantly by the Galactic Senate to settle such problems, and he left the Jedi Order. The Jedi task force which was dispatched to Baltizaar was decimated by the Bando Gora, with only a handful surviving to return to Coruscant. The rest were either killed or imprisoned. Among the survivors of the fighting was the Dark Jedi Nikkos Tyris, who retreated to Suarbi to recover.

 

Suarbi 7
This planet is the seventh in the Suarbi System. It is a gas giant orbited by an asteroid belt and dozens of moons.

 

Suarbi 7/5
This savannah-covered moon orbits Suarbi 7, a gas giant ringed by asteroids and dozens of moons. A couple of human settlements evolved on the moon centuries before the birth of the New Republic, as did the Jensaarai. It was later renamed Susevfi. It was here that Leonia Tavira returned with the Invidious after her pirate raids. It was also here that she held Mirax Terrik, after Mirax was captured on Nal Hutta by the Jensaarai.

Abrion Sector

 

Abrion Sector
This sector of the galaxy was made up of some 200 planets which were dedicated to agricultural and the production of foodstuffs. In the last years of the Old Republic, the entire Abrion Sector - including the planets Ukio and Abrion Major - joined the Separatist movement and seceded from the Republic.

 

Abrion Major
This was the primary planet in the Abrion System, and the capital of Abrion Sector.

 

Ord Pardron
The primary planet in the Ord Pardron system, it is a defensive center for the New Republic. The planet is nothing more than a barren rock, with a thin atmosphere and very little gravity. However, it is rich in minerals and ores, and was extensively mined by the Old Republic and the Empire. It served as the primary defensive site for the Abrion and Dufilvian sectors (including Ando, Filve, and Crondre). The New Republic base there was attacked by the Death's Head by Grand Admiral Thrawn prior to the Battle of Bilbringi.

 

Sevarcos
This planet was the second which orbits the star Lumea, and was most famous for its production of two kinds of spice: the common, white andris and the rare, black carsunum. During the New Order, the Empire established a penal colony on the planet, supplementing their production of spice while maintaining an air of seclusion to Sevarcos. Much of the planet was ruled by the so-called Spice Lords of Sevarcos, a group made up from the leaders of the various criminal empires based on the planet. Sevarcos was dry, arid world covered with sandy deserts.

 

Ukio
A major agricultural center for the New Republic, Ukio was the primary planet in the Ukian system. In the year leading up to the Clone Wars, Ukio and the entire Abrion Sector seceded from the Old Republic, providing the Separatists with a source of foodstuffs and giving them a measure of self-suficiency. Many years leater, it was attacked by Grand Admiral Thrawn and forced to surrender before being recaptured by the New Republic. It was attacked by the Star Destroyers Chimaera and Stormhawk just prior to Thrawn's attack on Coruscant. A large planet, Ukio has a mild climate and minimal seasonal changes. In centuries past, the planet was covered with lush plains, but modern farming techniques have turned it into a well-managed gridwork of fields and fallow. Each of the three major continents on the planet are strictly maintained, and crop rotation procedures are a matter of Ukian law.

Dufilvian Sector

 

Dufilvian sector
Sector of the galaxy containing Filve.

 

Crondre
A planet in the Ando system, and the sight of one of Thrawn's last attacks prior to his attack on Coruscant. It was attacked by the Star Destroyer Nemesis.

 

Ando
This water-covered, Mid Rim world was the second and primary planet of the Ando system, and was the homeworld of the Aqualish race. It was orbited by a pair of moons. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, the planet was tightly controlled by the Empire. Ando was the sight of one of Thrawn's feint attacks in preparation for his attack on Ukio; the attack was led by the Bellicose. Ninety-five percent of the planet was covered by water and there was very little solid land mass, and the Aqualish have adapted by living in sailing ships or on the small islands. The islands themselves were often nothing more that hummocks in a swampy ecosystem, and were shrouded with an acrid, steamy mist. There was at one time a sister planet to Ando, but the Aqualish wars left it barren and blasted soon after they discovered space travel. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ando was one of the first planets which were "spared" in return for a live Jedi Knight. Unfortunately for Dorsk 82, he was killed by the Aqualish when he tried to protect the droids which worked on the planet. Ando eventually fell to the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Filve
A planet in the Ando system, Filve was the site of one of Thrawn's last attacks before he attacked Coruscant. The attack was led by the Star Destroyer Judicator. Much of the planet is covered by a hot desert, and the native Filvians have built enclosed cities to protect themselves from the planet's scorching environment.

Rayter Sector

 

Azna
A nondescript planet in the Rayter Sector.

 

Bancar
This planet is located in Rayter Sector.

 

Dahvil
Little is known about this planet, which is located in the Rayter Sector.

 

Fait d'Fait   
A planet located in the Rayter Sector, between Tintel and Azna.

 

Laim
This planet, located in Rayter Sector, was one of six worlds in the sector which could initiated communications on the Rayter Sector Subspace Broadcast Network.

 

Najarka
This planet, located in Rayter Sector, was surveyed by the Empire. The planet is too far from its sun to sustain life, and yet a band of dense rainforests rings the planet. It was discovered that there was intense geophysical activity beneath the rainforests, where the heat of the magma below the crust warms the glacier and provides the necessary heat to encourage life to grow. Icequakes continually rearrange the glacial portion of the planet, which is pummeled by hurricane-force winds and metal-piercing hail. The unique plant life has been featured in several Imperial buldings, including the Emperor's own gardens. It was on Najarka that Yearo Seville and his gang kidnapped Crying Dawn Singer for the Farool brothers. The average day on Najarka lasts 28 standard hours, and its year lasts 402 local days.

 

Narg
This planet is located in Rayter Sector, and was the site of TransGalMeg Industries' corporate headquarters. Its climate varies greatly with lattitude, with equatorial deserts and polar ice caps. It is a low-tech world on which human life evolved normally, until the planet was discovered by the Empire three years before the Battle of Yavin. The planet was quickly industrialized and stripped of its natural resources. The Empire decided that the human population was not ready for entrance into the galactic community, and placed the planet under a provisional protectorate owned by TransGalMeg. TGM received ten years of full power over the planet's resources in return for managing the planet for the Empire. Because of their isolation, the humans of Narg are highly xenophobic. Narg's average day lasts 21 standard hours, and its year encompasses 431 local days.

 

Ord Dorlass
This is a little-known planet located in the Rayter Sector.

 

Salteract
This planet is located in Rayter Sector.

 

Sarranket
This planet is located in Rayter Sector.

 

Tintel
This planet is located in the Rayter Sector.

 

Tynna
This aquatic planet was the primary planet in the Tynnani System and was the homeworld to the Tynnan race. The waters of the planet were quite frigid, forcing many native species to develop layers of blubber or fat to maintain their warmth. The planet was overtaken by the Yuuzhan Vong during the Battle of Tynna, and reshaped to serve as a living factory for their unusual bio-technology.

 

Osarian
This planet orbited its star in an ellipse that brought it very close to Rhommamool every ten years. Like Rhommamool, Osarian was not a technologically-advanced world when it petitioned the New Republic to mediate a centuries-old feud which had been refueled by Nom Anor. The feud sprang from the fact that Osarian was a pleasant, temperate world, while Rhommamool was a desolate place originally colonized by criminals sentenced to work in the mines. The Osarians who settled on the planet were more or less the wardens and caretakers of the mining colonists of Rhommamool, a kind of master-slave relationship that wore relations between the two planets quite thin. Neither planet had developed the ability to travel through space, and the Osarians employed a mercenary band of Rodians to protect themselves from Rhommamool. Just before Nom Anor fled the system in order to join the Yuuzhan Vong attack force, he launched a series of missiles at Osa-Prime, leaving the city in ruins and sparking a full-scale war between the two planet.

 

Rhommamool
This planet orbitted its star in an ellipse that brought it very close to Osarian every ten years. An inhospitable world populated by the descendants of criminals exiled to work in the mines, Rhommamool appeared to be a large, red ball from space. Although there were many miners who lived on the planet voluntarily, the vast majority were forced to live their because of their criminal pasts. The planet's harsh conditions were only highlighted by the proximity of Osarian, which was a pleasant, temperate planets. The natives of Osarian managed the mines on Rhommamool, keeping watch on the exiles and reaping the profits of their labors. Like Osarian, Rhommamool was not a technologically-advanced world when it petitioned the New Republic to mediate a centuries-old feud which had been refueled by Nom Anor. In fact, neither planet had developed space travel, and Rhommamool was decidedly ground-based. Nom Anor rallied the Rhommamoolians to declare their independence from Osarian rule, and to denounce the New Republic. He then fled the planet to join the Yuuzhan Vong attack force, hoping the Republic would focus on Rhommamool. As he left, he fired a series of missiles at the city of Osa-Prime, launching a full-scale war between the two planets.

Yushan Sector

 

Kaal
This Mid-Rim ocean world is located in the Yushan Sector. Despite its boundless oceans, Kaal is also a major exporter of agricultural goods. Numerous casinos and luxury resorts populate its coasts and islands, which were controlled by the Empire until the Battle of Endor. Following the death of Emperor Palpatine, Jeng Droga - one of his faithful Dark Jedi - was so overwhelmed that he crashed his ship into the oceans of Kaal. The ship was rumored to have the only working cloaking device of its time. The crash caused massive tidal waves which destroyed the Unis Islands. The Empire laster abandoned the planet, since its most valuable resort properties had been wiped out. The crimelord Tirgee Banyalle then took control of the planet, and exploited its aquacultural resources. After the Battle of Endor, the New Republic and Talon Kaarde both negotiated for control of the planet. The Republic wanted to have access to the aquaculture, while Kaarde wanted the cloaking device.

 

Yushan System
A Mid-Rim planetary system containing the planet Kaal.

 

Bimmisaari
This planet was the homeworld of the Bimm race. It was a temperate, forested world whose day lasted 26 standard hours, while its year lasted 302 local days. Bimmisaari was one of the first ten planets to join the Refugee Resettlement Coalition, shortly before the Clone Wars. In the wake of the death of Emperor Palpatine at Endor, Bimmisaari was courted by the New Republic, but chose to remain as neutral as possible. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Bimmisaari was overrun during the second wave of attacks.

Corporate Sector

 

Corporate Sector
This area of the galaxy originally was set aside by the Old Republic for corporations to use for mining raw materials. It was created after the experiment at corporate control in the Expansion Region failed. Several hundred systems - all devoid of intelligent life - made up the original Expansion Region Corporate Sector, and corporations could purchase the use of entire systems under the watchful eye of the Republic. Huge corporations began moving into the area, hoping to acquire a piece of the huge profits it was generating. The corporate executives were bound by the Old Republic's Senate until Emperor Palpatine rose to power. Under the New Order, executives convinced the Emperor to expand the Corporate Sector to include nearly 30,000 star systems. Eleven new intelligent species were discovered, but their existence was kept secret by the power-hungry corporations. The executives agreed to pay Palpatine a percentage of their corporate profits if he would allow them to manage the sector by themselves, to which Palpatine agreed. Thus was born the Corporate Sector Authority and the CSA Security Police force. The current Corporate Sector is bordered by the Aparo and Wyl Sectors. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, much of the pathway known as Vector Prime traveled through the Corporate Sector, and planets such as Brigia and Ruuria were overrun as the Yuuzhan Vong moved toward the Core.

 

Ammuud
This planet was originally colonized by settlers from Thokos. There were seven colony ships that arrived, and the descendants from each ship formed the basis for Ammuud's seven major clans. A series of savage clan wars broke out, and lasted for nearly 10,000 years. About 100 years before the Galactic Civil War, the clans called a cease-fire, and developed a governmental system based on the Ammuud Code. Years later, the planet was under Corporate Sector Authority jurisdiction, but subcontracted to the clans. Each clan leader, or Mor, then ruled as part of the planet's government. This coalition is very shaky, as the clans tend to play against each other in a perpetual power struggle. There is a unique Code that is used among the clans to ensure some level of fairness. The planet itself is thickly forested, with large oceans and two immense polar ice caps.

 

Ballikite
This planet was thought to be the homeworld of the Rakririan race. Note that Han Solo and the Corporate Sector Sourcebook, as well as Han Solo at Stars' End, claim their homeworld to be Rakrir.

 

Bonadan   
the primary planet in the Bonadan System, in the Corporate Sector, Bonadan had its natural resources systematically drained by the Corporate Sector Authority. Its once-beautiful landscape was scorched and barren from years of strip-mining, pollution, and mismanagement. Bonadan was one of the Authority's most prominent factory worlds, and had ten spaceports to effectively move its resources off-planet. A large Security Police force was stationed there, to keep an eye on the incredibly dense population. Weapons were not allowed on the planet, and newcomers were thoroughly scanned before landing. An Authority Merchant Marine academy was also based there. It was on Bonadan that Shug Ninx recovered a mile-long section of the first Death Star prototype, which he later used in his repair facility on Nar Shaddaa. Bonadan was also the site of an Alderaanian embassy, one of two such embassies recognized by the New Republic. The other was located on Coruscant.

 

Bretta
This planet, located in the Corporate Sector, was a mixture of civilized urban centers surrounded by pre-industrial wilds.

 

Brosi
This lushly forested world was the fourth planet in the Dostra System, and was the only inhabitable world in the Thandon Cluster. The planet was unremarkable, except for the fact that its crust and mantle were rich in zinsian, which the Corporate Sector Authority used as a dry preservative. The CSA established a number of zinsian processing plants, and annexed the planet despite the wishes of the native Brosin. The average day on Brosi lasted 26.5 standard hours, and its year encompassed 289 local days. Brosin had one natural satellite.

 

Craci System
Located just within the boundaries of the Corporate Sector, this five-planet system is home to the Cracian Thumper.

 

Drog II
This planet was located in the Corporate Sector.

 

Duroon
A planet in the middle of one of the Corporate Sector Authority's steer-clear areas. It has a single Authority installation. Duroon has three natural satellites and a varied, temperate to semi-tropical environment. An active volcano fissure runs across the planet's east-west axis, venting large amounts of steam, magma, and radiation. Han Solo and Chewie deliver a smuggled shipment of guns to a race of aliens enslaved on the planet by the Authority, who want to revolt against the Authority.

 

Ekibo
This planet was settled by Trianii colonists. It was later usurped by the Corporate Sector Authority when it expanded its borders under the New Order.

 

Erysthes
This planet, located in the Corporate Sector, is the source of the galaxy's supply of chak-root.

 

Ession
This planet, the fourth in the Lucaya System of the Corporate Sector, was settled some 4,000 years before the Battle of Endor. Since that time, it evolved into a major center of industrial manufacturing, and managed to remain neutral during the Galactic Civil War. The warlord Zsinj had built the Pakkerd Light Transport company on the planet, building TIE Fighters for use in his war machine, and sent the Night Caller - under the control of Wraith Squadron - to protect the Implacable while it receives the first shipment of new starfighters. However, the New Republic managed to get three squadrons of X-Wings to the planet aboard the Blood Nest, and was able to knock out the Pakkerd plant before the TIEs could launch. The Republic also managed to take out the Implacable.

 

Etti IV
A planet in the Corporate Sector which is supposedly open to general trade, Etti IV was originally settled 20,000 years before the Battle of Hoth by the Etti people. It is the seat of the Corporate Sector Authority's power, but has no exportable resources. It is located on a major trade route within the Corporate Sector. It is also where Han Solo pays off Ploovo 2-for-1 with a dinko. Etti IV is also one of the primary entry-point worlds to the Corporate Sector.

 

Fibuli
This planet was one of the Trianii colony worlds usurped by the Corporate Sector. Intense fighting among the Trianii Rangers and the CSA resulted from the takeover, and it was during this battle that Keeheen was taken prisoner by the CSA and imprisoned at Stars' End. After three years of devastating battles, the Rangers and the CSA signed an armistice treaty following the Battle of Yavin. Unfortunately for those beings native to Fibuli, the planet had been devastated by the continual fighting, and was little more that a wasteland.

 

Gaurick
This Corporate Sector world is controlled by a religious cult. Han Solo and Chewbacca once ran chak-root to the workers of this planet, since the substance held some religious taboos. They ran the substance for Big Bunji, who agreed to pay for their expenses as part of their salary. The chak-root runs became more and more difficult as the religious leaders - known as muftis - took notice of them, until one run was intercepted. The Millennium Falcon sustained considerable damage, and Han was forced to dump his load in order to escape. He got the Falcon repaired, since Big Bunji agreed to pay for all expenses. However, he soon received a bill from Big Bunji for all the repairs as well as the dumped chak-root. Both Han and Chewie were livid, and in return for Big Bunji's bill, they strafed the crimelord's compound with the Falcon's new weapons.

 

Kail
A planet located in the Corporate Sector.

 

Kalinda System
This six-planet star system was located at the junction between the Corporate Sector, New Republic space, and a sliver of Imperial space. In this position, it was greatly desired by the Corporate Sector and the Imperials, although it supported the New Republic. It was named for Jak Kalinda. The system was somewhat protected from the outside by a wide asteroid belt which orbits beyond the last planet in the system.

 

Kalla
A planet with a Corporate Sector university campus. Rekkon was teaching there when his nephew, an outspoken youth, began rallying anti-Authority sentiments. His speeches detailing Authority oppression led to his being kidnapped by the Authority and sent to Stars' End. It was later the site of an Imperial base.

 

Kir
A planet deep in the Corporate Sector, known for its vertex crystal mines.

 

Knolstee
This Corporate Sector world is on the regular route of the luxury liner Lady of Mindor, located between Ammuud and Roonadan.

 

Mall'ordian
This Corporate Sector world is visited by the regular voyages of the Lady of Mindor.

 

Maryo
This resort world is located in the Corporate Sector. It was here that Authority agents first contacted Torm Dadefferon about becoming an agent and exposing his father. Note that this planet is referred to as Mayro on the Star Wars Databank.

 

Mytus VII
The planetoid on which the Corporate Sector Authority built the Stars' End penal colony. It is located in the outer fringes of the Corporate Sector, and is the outermost planet in its system. An asteroid belt separates it from the other planets and its primary sun. It is a lifeless, airless rock.

 

Orron III
An agricultural world that is home to the Corporate Sector Authority's Data Center. Only two types of ships are allowed passage to the planet: drone barges for transporting crops off the planet, and Authority fleet ships. Han Solo agrees to pick up Rekkon there, and Jessa disguises the Millennium Falcon as a grain barge in order to get Han onto the planet.

 

Pypin
One of the Corporate Sector's Trianii colony worlds.

 

Rampa II
A water-poor planet located in the Corporate Sector. Han Solo sustained a fair amount of damage to the Millennium Falcon while trying to smuggle water there. The planet has been industrialized to the point that its ecosystem has been destroyed, requiring that the population be contained in a small area. The population is sustained with synthetic nutrients. An Imperial outpost was located here, during the early years of the New Order, which was attacked by rebellious agents. The attack forced Moff Sarn Shild to disregard his agreements with the Hutts and issue orders to bring down any smuggling activity in the Hutt sectors of space. Rampa II and its sister planet, Rampa I, were quickly subjugated by the Empire for their insurrections.

 

Reltooine
A Corporate Sector world visited by the Lady of Mindor.

 

Roonadan
Fifth planet in the Bonadan System, in the Corporate Sector. Han Solo and Fiolla boarded the Lady of Mindor there, during their travel to the planet Ammuud.

 

Saffalore
This Corporate Sector world was the headquarters of Binring Biomedical Product. It remained neutral during the end of the Galactic Civil War, although Binring was staunchly loyal to the Empire.

 

Thandon Cluster
This was a relatively uninhabited region of the Corporate Sector.

 

Thokos
The inhabitants of this planet launched a series of colony ships aimed at settling the planet Ammuud. These ships left Thokos about 10,000 years before the formations of the Corporate Sector, and communication between Ammuud and Thokos was lost.

 

Tingel Arm
This area of the Corporate Sector was where most of the fighting between the Authority and the Trianii took place. In the realignment which occurred after the Battle of Endor and the eventual formation of a peace treaty between the Imperials and the New Republic, the Tingel Arm was located directly between the Corporate Sector and the Imperial Remnant. Despite its location, the Tingel Arm remained one of the least explored areas of the galaxy. Many xenobiologists theorized that the Yuuzhan Vong could have developed in this area, instead of in another galaxy. The Tingel Arm was the entry point of the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy, with the planets Belkadan and Helska being the first to fall to the alien invaders.

 

Tothis
This planet was located deep inside the Corporate Sector of the galaxy.

 

Urdur
The planet on which Doc and Jessa set up their outlaw tech base, Urdur is a chilly, temperate world. When the base is discovered by the Corporate Sector Authority, Jessa and Han Solo scatter the techs as they head for Mytus VII. After destroying Stars' End and recovering the prisoners, Han flies back to Urdur to release them. Doc and Jessa had planned to move their base, but the demise of the Corporate Sector Authority may have changed that.

Hutt Space

 

Riileb
This is the homeworld of the Riileb race, located on the fringes of Hutt Space. The planet literally teamed with life, depsite the fact that it was exceptionally hot and humid, with little dry land. Note that Alien Encounters claims the planet was located in the depths of Hutt Space.

 

Runaway Prince
This planet, located deep in Hutt Space, was reformed by the Yuuzhan Vong as a breeding ground for yorik coral and villips.

 

Sakiya
This planet was the homeworld of the Sakiyan race. Note that this planet is name Saki in the Alien Anthology. Sakiya was a tropical world, located near the center of Hutt Space.

 

Syvris
This moon, located on the border between Hutt space and Imperial-controlled space, was subjugated by Imperial forces shortly before the Battle of Hoth. Many of the moon's residents were smugglers, who lived and worked at a shadowport located in its largest crater. They believed that the shadowport's location had been given to the Empire by Basz Maliyu. The shadowport had been run by Rance, but he perished in the attack.

 

Toydaria
This swamp-covered planet was located in Hutt Space, within the Mid Rim, and was the homeworld of the Toydarian race. Its surface was composed of nutrient-rich muck, which pooled and puddled into lakes and ponds. The closest thing to landmasses found on the planet were thick mats of algae which floated on top of the swamps.

 

Tragrud
This planet, the only world in the Tragrud System, was tectonically unstable. Nonetheless, the Alliance established a staging area and refueling outpost on the planet, serving those ships which traveled into Hutt Space. Note that this planet is also named Tragud in Secrets of the Sisar Run.

 

Yoribuunt
This immense gas giant was located on the border of Hutt Space. Its appearance from space was a swirl of red and yellow gases, mixing together in ever-changing patterns that made the planet quite beautiful to behold.

 

Y'Toub System
The planetary system which contains Nal Hutta and Nar Shaddaa. It is located in the center of Hutt space, that portion of the galaxy ruled by the Hutts. Six planets orbit the primary star.

 

Klatooine
This desert planet, located within the Si'Klaata Cluster, is the homeworld of the Klatooinan race. Klatooine is found deep in Hutt space.

 

Nal Hutta
This planet was colonized by the Hutts and is the birthplace of Jabba the Hutt. The name "Nal Hutta" means "glorious jewel" in Huttese, which described its setting near a radioactive nebula. The planet, located in the Y'Toub System, was at one time known as Evocar, and was inhabited by the Evocii race. The Hutts, fleeing the desolation of Varl, settled on Evocar as a suitable home. They began trading technology to the Evocci for land, and continued to do so until they owned most of the planet. The Evocii realized what was happening, but too late. The Hutts began construction on a multitude of palaces and pleasure sites before the Evocii could do anything about. Their appeals to the Old Republic were taken seriously, but the contracts they signed with the Hutts were ironclad in favor of the Hutts. Even the Jedi Knights were powerless. The Hutts forced them off the planet and onto Nar Shaddaa, where they were eventually mutated over the years by the various technologies in use on the moon. The planet is ruled by the oldest Hutt families, who control Nar Shaddaa from their homes. The planet is huge, but it has no natural heavy metals. Thus, its density is less than expected. Its day lasts 87 standard hours, and its year is 413 local days in duration. What remains of the planet's natural landscape is flat, marshy bogs. In the aftermath of the Battle of Fondor and the duplicitous actions of Borga the Hutt, the Yuuzhan Vong targetted Nal Hutta for destruction. The Vong bombarded the planet from a remote location, although many of the missiles exploded in the atmosphere. Eventually, both Nal Hutta and the moon Nar Shaddaa were overtaken by the alien invaders, and teraformed into worlds more suitable to them.

 

Nar Shaddaa
This was Nal Hutta's spaceport moon, known for its vertically-built cities, experienced spaceship mechanics and its lawlessness. It was once the site of several mining installations, but over the centuries it became a center for smuggling operations. It was here that Han Solo supposedly learned the smuggler's trade as a youth. When the Hutts took over the moon, they began using it as a spaceport, and soon huge refueling spires and repair facilities reached up from the ground into orbit. Over time, the mass of the moon was increased 300 percent as construction continued unabated. There is no observable land mass left on Nar Shaddaa, since the spaceports have grown around the spires and now completely cover the planet. The moon was uninhabited during the time that the Evocii lived on Nal Hutta, although they called it Evocar. When the Hutts took over the planet, they relegated the Evocii to Nar Shaddaa. However, the Hutts used them as semi-free slaves on the moon, and the press of so many various species and technologies eventually mutated the Evocii. Nar Shaddaa is similar to its parent planet, having a day which lasts 87 standard hours, and a year which lasts 413 local days. It is tide-locked with Nal Hutta, and only shows one side to its planet. This results in a day which has two distinct periods of ligthness: one in which is is in full view of the sun, and one in which it obtains light reflected from Nal Hutta. This also results in two periods of night. When the Yuuzhan Vong began to make attacks on Hutt Space, Nar Shaddaa was considered a technological nightmare. After Nal Hutta was subjugated by the alien invaders, Nar Shaddaa was leveled by orbital strikes and eventually rebuilt into a world more suitable to the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Ylesia
This planet was covered with shallow seas broken by several island chains and three continents. The northern continent was located near the north pole, while the other two were located along the equator. The weather patterns on Ylesia were marked by incredibly wild air currents found in all layers of the atmosphere, making it difficult to land a ship there. These patterns were due mainly to the planet's swift rotation, which results in a ten-hour day. Much of the land is hidden under shallow, brackish water, resulting in swampy areas which abound with a strange fungus that thrives on fresh blood. The Hutts and t'landa Til set up a huge glitterstim processing plant on this world, using the front of a religious colony to obtain slave labor. An orbiting space station was positioned over Colony One, and was the primary debarkation point for new pilgrims and outgoing slaves. Bria Tharen and her Alliance crew often attacked slave ships leaving the space station. The planet eventually supported nine of the "religious" colonies before the Hutts started thinking about populating another world. During the era of the New Republic and the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ylesia became a hotbed of activity and support for the Peace Brigade, and later served as the Peace Brigade's base of operations. To ensure that the Peace Brigade was free to act, the Yuuzhan Vong executed every Hutt it could find on Ylesia, but maintained the glitterstim mining operations as a way to fund the activities of the Peace Brigade.

 

Da Soocha
A planet with five moons in the Cyax system, in the Huttese language, Da Soocha means "Walking Planet." It is a water-covered world, which lended some credence to the Hutt legends of the Cyax system including a planet with an intelligent, godlike ocean. However, from all initial probes, Da Soocha's ocean is as normal as any other ocean. Admiral Ackbar had planned to rescue his fellow Mon Calamari from the Emperor's World Devastators by transporting them to Da Soocha.

 

Da Soocha 5
Da Soocha's fifth moon, home of the New Republic's Pinnacle Base. It was chosen for the Pinnacle Base following the outbreak of civil war on Coruscant, primarily because its location was unknown to everyone but the Hutts. It is called the Pinnacle Moon because of its unique landscape. The huge gravitational pull of Da Soocha has created large tidal forces on the moon. These tides eventually washed away all loose sediment, revealing huge spires of rock that were spewed from volcanoes eons ago. These pinnacles are home for the Ixlls. The moon was destroyed by the resurrected Emperor Palpatine when he fired his Galaxy Gun at the moon, in an effort to eradicate the New Republic.

Auril

(Cron Drift)

 

Auril Systems
This group of star systems was originally composed of nine unique systems. During the Great Sith War, three of the systems were destroyed, creating the area of the galaxy known as the Cron Drift. The remaining six systems remain intact, including the Adega System and the spaceport world Nespis VIII.

 

Adega
This star was the central body of the Adegan System, which contained the planet Ossus.

 

Adega
Located in the Outer Rim Territories, this was the primary world of the Adegan System and the site of an important Jedi stronghold. It borders the Cron Drift. Adega was one of the original nine Auril Systems, and is only one of six that remains following the creation of the Cron Drift.

 

Carida
A large world with a greater than standard gravity and varying climate, Carida was staunchly loyal to the Empire, although it managed to pursuade the New Republic that is was undecided on the matter. Many of the original settlers left the planet because of the strong gravitational force. Some 200 years before the Galactic Civil War, when the Old Republic decided to establish a military academy aimed at training armed forces, Carida gladly stepped up to volunteer. A small community grew up near the site, which grew into a full-fledged town. The town grew to encompass an entire planetary economy which saw its heyday under the control of Furgan. The Empire controlled the planet until Kyp Durron used the Sun Crusher to destroy the system, while he was being influenced by Exar Kun. Later, Leonia Tavira twisted the event and made everyone who listen believe that Kyp had been sent to Carida under orders from the New Republic.

 

Ossus
Third planet in the Adega system, Ossus was home to the site of an ancient Jedi stronghold and training center thousands of years before the Freedon Nadd Uprisings and the Great Sith War. Many historians believe that the Jedi Order originated on Ossus, but this was only conjecture. Following the Freedon Nadd Uprisings on Onderon, Jedi Master Arca planned to send the ancient Sith artifacts recovered from Freedon Nadd's ship there for examination, but Exar Kun was able to retrieve them first. In the chaos surrounding the Great Sith War, Aleema and Crado destroyed the Cron System, loctaed near the Adega System. Ossus was caught in the wave of destruction radiating from the supernova. The Jedi attempted to transport the artifacts and lore from the libraries there, but were only able to take a fraction of the wealth stored there over the millennia. In an attempt to preserve a cache of lightsabers, Master Ood Bnar initiated his lifecycle change, becoming a gnarled old tree with the lightsabers engtangled in his roots. He was nearly destroyed by the radiation from the Cron System. Over the ages, great cities grew out of the planet's rough, irradiated terrain. In modern times, the planet was nearly wiped out during the Clone Wars. The enemies of the Jedi Knights struck there, attempting to destroy the stronghold and root out the Jedi. Although the planet was devastated, the Jedi survived. Later, following the death of Emperor Palpatine's first clone on Byss, Luke Skywalker and Kam Solusar discover the planet's ancient Jedi connection, and were directed there by Master Vodo's holocron just before Sedriss executed Operation Shadow Hand. There, they found the Ysanna tribe and the ancient Jedi Master Ood Bnar. The planet's atmosphere is laced with electrical storms, probably resulting from the near-devastation it suffered during the Clone Wars. It orbited the Adegan stars in a figure-eight orbit.

 

Nespis VIII
A planet near the Cron Drift, where Luke Skywalker first met Kam Solusar. A sprawling space city orbits the planet, which is located in the Auril System, developed millennia ago by the Jedi Knights as a place where politics and bureaucracy had no place. Scientists and scholars could come to the station to debate and explore without concern for which side actually owned the discoveries. The station eventually became so big that it had its own interior weather patterns. It had been around since before the Great Sith War, although much of the spaceport was abandoned after the Clone Wars, and the city became a drifting derelict. Rumors abound about the existence of a vast, ancient, Jedi library somewhere on the station, and even the very existence of the station was considered a legend until shortly after the Battle of Yavin. The library supposedly contained volumes which contained all the knowledge of the galaxy. As rumors of the library spread, treasure hunters flew to the station to recover some of the ancient tomes. In this supposedly abandoned location, Borborygmus Gog developed his Nightmare Machine, in an effort to pry a person's deepest fears from their minds and turn them against them. He used the legends of the Jedi library to attract minds, hoping one day to capture a being who was strong with the Force. When the reborn Emperor Palpatine destroyed the New Republic's Pinnacle Base, the Republic's leaders fled to Nespis VIII to regroup. It was at this time that Anakin Solo was born on the space station city. The location of the base was betrayed by a spy, and the Emperor fired his Galaxy Gun at it. However, the projectile did not explode upon impact, and Nespis VIII was spared for some time. The Republic was able to evacuate the space city before a second projectile was launched. This one exploded as planned, completely destroying the Nespis VIII spaceport.

 

Cron Drift
This area of the Auril Sector, in close proximity to Nespis VIII, the Adegan System, and Carida, is the site of the remnants of a multi-star supernova. (Dark Apprentice says that the supernova contains four stars, but The Sith War comics say that the supernova engulfed ten stars.) During the Great Sith War, Aleema tried to use the Dark Side of the Force to rip the core from one of the stars in the Cron Cluster. She had hoped to destroy the Old Republic fleet that was pursuing the Sith followers, but she hadn't prepared for the possibility of the core igniting all the other solar masses in the Cluster. All of the stars ignited, going supernova at the same instant. Aleema was, of course, killed in the blast, and the Cron Drift was born. The current stars in the system made up six of the original nine Auril Systems. The rest were destroyed in the explosion. Following the genesis of the New Order, Ploovo 2-for-1 operated his criminal business from the Cronf Drift. Han Solo and Chewbacca tried to run a clotheslegging operation there, but it failed. After the New Republic defeated Grand Admiral Thrawn, it was discovered that Terpfen had been 'programmed' to meet the Caridan ambassador Furgan within the Drift.

 

Kemplex IX
A dead moon located in the ancient Cron System, in the Auril Sector, it was the site of an Old Republic hyperspace station. It was the location chosen by Captain Vanicus to mass the Old Republic's fleet against Ulic Qel-Droma. He chose it because he believed Qel-Droma would attack there. Instead, Qel-Droma attacked Coruscant while its defenses were down.

The Centrality

 

Centrality
This area of the galaxy, located in a remote corner contains the Rafa System and the Renatasian System. It was a long slice of space situated between the Cron Drift and Hutt Space. The governors of the Centrality were ostensibly allied with the Empire, but there were few Imperial forces in the area because of its lack of resources. There were also very few planetary bodies in the Centrality, and travelers were warned to top off their fuel systems before trying to cross it, lest they run out of fuel be stranded.

 

Dela
This planet was the financial center of the Centrality. Dela was Lando Calrissian's destination after winning the Millennium Falcon in a sabacc match. Unfortunately, Lando's piloting and astrogation skills were poorly suited for hyperspace travel, and he ended up in the Oseon system instead.

 

Erilnar
This planet was the governmental capital of the Centrality. The surface of Erilnar was broken by 300,000 lakes that left little contiguous landmass for settlement.

 

Lekua
This planet, located in the Lekua System of the Centrality, was known for its colleges and universities.

 

Rafa III
The planet on which an extensive deep-bore mining operation is located.

 

Rafa IV
The planet on which Lando Calrissian first visits the Rafa System while hunting for its treasure. It is also the location where Lando was to pick up the Class 2 droid he won from Osuno Whett. It has no natural satellites. It is home to an ideal life-crystal orchard, due to the planet's temperate climate. It is also home to Duttes Mer's prison facility.

 

Rafa System
An eleven-planet system that was extensively settled by the ancient Sharu race, which disappeared eons ago without a trace. They left behind huge buildings and monuments that indicated a growing technology. It is famous for the life-crystals which are grown there (and only on a few planets which accurately imitate Rafa's climate), the life-orchards in which they grow, and Sharu ruins. It was also home to a penal colony where a life sentence meant certain death. It held many of the galaxy's worst criminals and politicians. The system is located near to the Oseon System.

 

Rafa V
The planet on which the Sharu hid the Mindharp, Rafa V is a cold world which barely supports a small life-orchard. The planet has two moons and a thin, breathable atmosphere. It is believed to be the first homeworld of the Sharu. Lando Calrissian and Mohs locate the great pyramid on the planet, and use the Key to enter it and recover the Mindharp.

 

Rafa XI
The smallest, furthest planet on the Rafa System, it supports a minimal population. Lando sends Jandler and his team there after escaping from them on Rafa V. The planet is covered with icy slush.

 

Renatasia III
One of the jewels of the Renatasia System, Renatasia III was one of the first places colonized by the Renatasian humans. They grew to colonize all eight planets, but Renatasia III was still the most beautiful. Following the birth of the Empire, Osuno Whett and Vuffi Raa began studying the Renatasians. Whett was going to use the system as a base of operations, and a way to gain power within the Empire. They were there for 700 days before the Imperial fleet arrived to take over the System.

 

Renatasia IV
One of the jewels of the Renatasia System, Renatasia IV was one of the first places colonized by the Renatasian humans. They grew to colonize all eight planets, but Renatasia IV remained one of the most artistic worlds, until the Empire invaded the system.

 

Renatasia System
A system which existed outside the bounds of both the Old Republic and the Empire, it never really developed deep-space-faring technology. The system was made up of 8 planets surrounding a medium-sized yellow star. The Renatasians, being hardy stock, began on Renatasia III and Renatasia IV, and eventually colonized all eight, regardless of the heat or cold environments. Its inhabitants were happy in their isolation, until Osuno Whett and Vuffi Raa discovered the system. The Renatasians declared that Vuffi Raa was some form of god or deity, and immediately trusted him and Whett. Whett used this trust to his advantage, and planned to take control of the system and all of its resources for himself. When Whett reported the location of the system, the Imperial Navy stepped in and took over the system, killing nearly two-thirds of the Renatasians before declaring the system Imperialized. Whett and Vuffi Raa escaped, but the surviving Renatasians believed that Vuffi Raa was the cause of their destruction. Led by Klyn Shanga, a group of Renatasian vigilantes hunted down Vuffi Raa and Lando Calrissian, with the aid of Rokur Gepta.

 

Rigneldia II
This planet, the second world in the Rigneldia System, was the manufacturing center of the Centrality. It was known to have developed its own measuring system which was based on the sizes of its indigenous legumes. Lando Calrissian and Vuffi Raa bought some replacement shield components there, to beef up the Millennium Falcon's shields before aiding the Oswaft.

 

Scillal
This planet was the site of the Centrality's largest and most prosperous shipyards, managed by Scillal Designs.

 

Uaua
This planet was the primary world in the Ua System of the Centrality. The native Quor'sav were nearly wiped out when offworld colonists - most of whom were mammalian - introduced a virus to the planet. While the colonists' biology allowed them to be immune carriers, the avian Quor'sav were quickly stricken by the virus and died.

Bothan Space

 

Bothawui
The Bothan homeworld, Bothawui was the third and primary planet in the Both System. Sometimes known as Bothawui Proper, it was a cosmopolitan planet which is a major hub for information trafficking. The Bothan spy network has been decsribed as second to none, and much of the information is possesses flows through Bothawui. Note that Specter of the Past indicates that the Bothawui system is located "millions of kilometers from anywhere." It was here that many of the alien races of the New Republic gathered their warships during the Caamas Incident, representing their own opinions and hoping to exact vengeance on the Bothans involved in the destruction of Caamas.

 

Kothlis
This Bothan colony world was the birthplace of Borsk Fey'lya. It was the fourth planet in the Kothlis System, had three small moons, and its gravity maintained a thin asteroid ring around it. Kothlis was originally purchased by Raynor Mining Enterprises during the Old Republic, outbidding the Bothans on the news that surveys had shown large deposits of valuable ores. However, the original surveys proved overly optimistic and the mines ran dry quickly. In order to cut their losses, Raynor sold the planet to the Bothans. Only three clans were allowed to colonize Kothlis originally: the Alya, the Balya, and Ilya. The Bothan spy network maintained an impressive information slicing operation on the planet. The plans for the second Imperial Death Star were taken to the planet after being recovered from the Suprosa, and were almost lost during an Imperial raid. Kothlis was a semi-tropical world, with an average day of 22 standard hours and a year which lasts 408 local days.

 

Kothlis II
A space station located near the planet Kothlis. It was here that the Bothan spies who obtained the plans to the second Death Star took on supplies to complete their delivery. The Empire seized control of the station, but not before the Bothans could escape. It was here that Talon Karrde provided information on the whereabouts of Wurth Skidder to Kyp Durron.

Tapani Sector

 

Achillea
One of the primary worlds of House Cadriaan, this planet was located in Tapani Sector. It was located along the Shapani Bypass, giving it a great deal of trade. Achillea was a world of semi-tropical beauty, with shallow seas and three continents.

 

Aleron
This was one of the strongest planets of the Freeworlds Region of Tapani Sector, during the height of the New Order. Much of the planet's surface was arid, and covered with a thick smog. This forced the inhabitants to develop underground cities and domed canyon dwellings. The planet's true value was found in the abundance of natural ores hidden in its crust and mantle. The planet was originally colonized by settlers from the planet Gilliana. They had hoped to terraform the planet, by Aleron refused to bend. The colonists then turned to developing the underground cities found on the planet.

 

Barnaba
This planet, the primary world of House Barnaba, was located in Tapani Sector. Its steep mountains formed deep, fertile valleys, and Barnaba was considered the breadbasket for much of Tapani Sector. Many of the noble families of House Barnaba have immense, floating castles that allow them to farm the land without having to give up space for a residence. In this way,Barnaba was almost devoid of actual cities, since most of the population either lived in these castles or in small farming settlements.

 

Bethal
This planet, located in Tapani Sector of the Colonies region, was the primary planet in the Bethal System. An infestation of greddleback termites caused the economy of the planet - which was based on apocia hardwood timber - to go under. Imperial Moff Tendd declared the planet a disaster world, and helped bring Imperial funds to the planet in an effort to restore the apocia.

 

Betolio System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from the holdings of House Pelagia, after Pelagia was nearly wiped out by House Mecetti.

 

Bianas System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Bilios System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order.

 

Blyte System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Calipsa   
this planet, located in Tapani Sector, was the capital world of House Calipsa. It was a plain, brown world from space, with little natural vegetation. However, Calipsa was rich in natural ores, and mining operations dominated its surface. This left the planet covered with air-borne pollution, contributing to its orbital appearance.

 

Caloria   
this minor planet was the primary world in the Caloria System, located in Tapani Sector. At the height of the New Order, Caloria was under the control of House Reena at the height of the New Order.

 

Canti System
This star system, located in Tapani Sector, was under the control of House Reena at the height of the New Order.

 

Cauper System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order.

 

Cesya System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Cadriaan during the New Order.

 

Coorimbus IV   
This gas giant, the primary world in the Coorimbus System of Tapani Sector, was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. None of the other Tapani Sector Houses was aware of the fact that Calipsa controlled Coorimbus IV, because it was located on the outer periphery of the sector and well away from the sector's hyperspace routes.House Calipsa maintained the secret because Coorimbus IV was an excellent source of corusca gems, which brought great wealth to House Calipsa.

 

Cor I System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Barnaba during the New Order.

 

Cor II System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Barnaba during the New Order.

Crella System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Barnaba during the New Order.

 

Dampher System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from the holdings of House Pelagia, after Pelagia was nearly wiped out by House Mecetti.

 

Dorella
This planet, located in the Freeworlds Region of Tapani Sector, was part of a group known as the Three Ellas. Along with Sorella and Pernella, Dorella had a liberal government that was more receptive to smugglers and criminals than other worlds.

 

Dorellia System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Estaph System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

The Expanse
This area of Tapani Sector was known for its ore-rich worlds, which were held by the various noble houses. Its capital, and the capital of Tapani Sector, was based on the planet Procopia. During the height of the New Order, it was estimated that there were 345 nobles families which made up the population of The Expanse, broken into Houses. There were seven major Houses which were formed from these families: the greater Houses of Mecetti, Cadriaan, and Melantha; and the lesser Houses of Barnaba, Pelagia, Reena, and Calipsa. Each House has a certain amount of voting power in the Great Council, depending on their current status.

 

Freeworlds Region
This area of Tapani Sector was located along the sector's borders. It was positioned along both the Shapani Bypass and the Giju Run, making it a transportation nexus for Tapani Sector. The Freeworlds Region gained power over the generations because all the ores from The Expanse had to pass through the Freeworlds Region.

 

Gania System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order.

 

Garobi System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Barnaba during the New Order.

 

Gilliana
This Tapani Sector planet was the primary world in the Gilliana system, and was part of the holdings of House Cadriaan during the New Order.

This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from the holdings of House Pelagia, after Pelagia was nearly wiped out by House Mecetti.

 

Hellios System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Barnaba during the New Order.


Indora

System: Lastelle
Capital City: Mythica
 

The Head planet controled by Ancient House Xuthus, after losing the Lastelle System to House Mecetti. The Planet had been lost from the Imperial and Republic Navy charts. House Xuthus was split during its early years, when House Mecetti was taking over the Lastelle System, by a war between brothers or the Elders as they are known today. A war that had lasted 13 years and had only two years ago has been resolved. On Indora it is custom to address someone by saying their last name first unless asked to address them by their first name. One of the few planets in the Tapani sector that isn't under Imperial Control.

The Planet is covered by mainly Forest and Plains, a Mountain range called the Vert Range that is East of Mythica is home to a rare gem called the Eye of Icle named after its founder Dalk Icle founder of Dalk Shipping the main shipping company of Indora. Two oceans also cover the planet, the biggest one being called the Raze which the drink Glacier Raze was named after.

 

Jappe
This planet was located in the Freeworlds Region of Tapani Sector, and was known as a safe haven for smugglers during the height of the New Order.

 

Javis
This planet, the primary world in the Javis System of Tapani Sector, was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Jinda System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order.

 

Kamper System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from the holdings of House Pelagia, after Pelagia was nearly wiped out by House Mecetti.

 

Lammax
This planet was located in the Danju System of Tapani Sector, which was found in the Freeworlds Region. The shadowport known as Port Bianco was situated on Lammax, established during the last years of the Old Republic and flourishing during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The presence of a nearby nebula made travel to and from the system dangerous, further hiding the shadowport from prying eyes.

 

Lamuir IV
This planet is located in Tapani Sector, and is part of the Lamuir System. It was one of only two worlds within Tapani Sector on which humans were not the dominant species. Herglics were the primary species on the planet, having settled it many thousands of years before humans discovered it. The planet's normally sensible inhabitants become frivolous during the annual Priole Danna festival. Note that this world is described as Lemuir IV in Tapani Sector Instant Adventures.

 

Lastelle System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Listoria System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Cadriaan during the New Order.

 

Lorenz System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from the holdings of House Pelagia, after Pelagia was nearly wiped out by House Mecetti.

 

Lupani System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order.

 

Mrlsst
This swamp-covered planet was one of two worlds in the Tapani Sector of the galaxy on which humans were not the dominant species. After the fall of Emperor Palpatine at Endor, Mrlsst aligned itself with the New Republic. Wedge Antilles and his Rogue Squadron of X-Wing pilots were escorting a supply convoy to the planet when they were ambushed at Cilpar. This was the homeworld of the Mrlssi race of avians. The Rogues ended up on Mrlsst again, during the negotiations for the Phantom cloaking device.

 

Nella System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Neona
This was one of the strongest planets of the Freeworlds Region of Tapani Sector, during the height of the New Order. It was covered with oceans, and the sea bed was rich in natural ores. It was originally scouted by Hanson Mining Consolidated, several hundred years before the Battle of Endor. The settlers of the planet established huge, floating cities from which they launched mining operations. Excavation of the planet's solid surface has revealed that a sentient civilization once existed on the planet, but was slowly swallowed up by the rising ocean levels during a warm period which melted the polar ice caps. The ocean floor was littered with the ruins of their cities.

 

Netolio System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. It was seized from House Pelagia, after Pelagia was virtually exterminated by House Mecetti.

 

New Javis System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Calipsa during the New Order. Aside from the Calipsa System itself, the New Javis system was the most populated system in the control of House Calipsa. The system was siezed from House Pelagia, after House Mecetti nearly exterminated Pelagia.

 

Nightsinger's Orb
Named for the vicious avians which inhabit it, this semi-tropical moon was located in the Pella System of Tapani Sector.

 

Nista
This planet, the primary world in the Nista System of Tapani Sector, was part of the holdings of House Cadriaan during the New Order.

 

Nyssa
This planet was the primary world in the Nyssa System, located in Tapani Sector. Part of the holdings of House Mecetti at the height of the New Order, it was once the base of operation for the Mecrosa Order, several thousand years before the Battle of Yavin.

 

Obelia System
This was one of only three star systems controlled by House Pelagia of Tapani Sector, after Pelagia was nearly destroyed by House Mecetti.

 

Obulette
This planet, located in Tapani Sector, was the capital world of House Mecetti. It orbitted a dim sun, which cast a reddish glow over the planet and kept it blanketed in perpetual twilight. Much of the planet's wealth came from orbital shipyards which were smaller than those on Tallaan, but were nonetheless successful. Most of the planet's landmass was covered with urbanized cities, while the natural areas were dominated by ash-colored rock and shallow seas.

 

Pavia System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Cadriaan during the New Order.

 

Pelagon
This ocean-covered planet was the first world settled in Tapani Sector, more than 13,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. It was settled by the ships of the Pella Compact, which maintained government of the original colonies for a thousand years. Over the millennia, cities were built over the warm seas, and great continents were formed from manmade structures. Over time, the wastes of these cities began polluting the oceans, and by the advent of the New Order, the seas of Pelagon were unable to support life. As House Mecetti rose to power, power struggles led to the destruction of many of these cities, further littering the oceans with debris. There were rumors that the ruins of many floating cities were protected by the spirits of the ancient Jedi Knights. Note that the Players Guide to Tapani also refers to this planet as Pelagia.

 

Pella System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Pernella
This planet, located in the Freeworlds Region of Tapani Sector, was part of a group known as the Three Ellas. Along with Dorella and Sorella, Pernella had a liberal government that was more receptive to smugglers and criminals than other worlds.

 

Pozzi System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Mecetti during the New Order.

 

Procopia
This planet, located in Tapani Sector, was the political capital of the sector. It was also the social capital of the sector during the Capital Season. The nobility and upper class of the sector travel to Procopia to maintain their social standing and reputation, while spying on their peers and looking for intrigue. Those who do not make the trip during Capital Season are often snubbed or blacklisted, which affects social standing as well as political and economic position. The planet itself was covered several chains of islands scattered throughout warm seas, making it quite beautiful to behold. The only true landmass, the continent of Davla, was located at the southern pole and was covered with seething volcanoes.

 

Reena
This planet, located in Tapani Sector, was the seat of power for House Reena. Reena was a temperate world of many small continents separated by warm shallow oceans. It was known for its prestigious universities, and much of its usable land mass was covered with urban cities. The planet had a somewhat friendly competition with the planet Mrlsst, to see which planet could have the most affluent school system. The planet was orbited by a single moon, on which were stationed a trio of Hex turbolaser batteries that protected the planet from orbital attack.

 

Rellio System
This Tapani Sector star system was part of the holdings of House Melantha during the New Order.

 

Rianon System

Soterios
This dry, rocky world was the capital of the province held by House Melantha of Tapani Sector. Much of its surface was covered with windswept canyons and desert wastelands. A few settlements managed to eke out a living, and the species they brought with them quickly overran the native flora and fauna. As a result, vitually none of the planet's original lifeforms existed at the height of the New Order.

 

Tallaan
This is the primary planet in the Tallaan System, which is located in Tapani Sector of the Colonies region. Note that the Star Wars Adventure Journal, Issue 7 claims that Tallaan in a younger member of the Core Worlds. Tallaan benefited greatly from its location, being located at the intersection of the Shapani Bypass and the Giju Run. It is the home of one of the oldest shipyards in the galaxy, which was set up around the time of the Great Sith War. During the modern era, these shipyards were overrun by the Empire, and alien slaves were at first removed from their positions as laborers, After the formation of the Guild of Non-Human Skilled Laborers, aliens were allowed to maintain their jobs, and many were imported to perform the labor. A strong cell of Alliance support blossomed on Tallaan, but was never able to remove its Imperial yolk. The Empire officially noted Wilhuf Tarkin's death as a shuttle accident at the shipyards.

Sluis Sector

 

Sluis Sector
Area of New Republic control containing Sluis Van, Bpfassh, Dagobah, and the Praesitlyn communications station.

 

Sluis Van
This was the primary planet in the Sluis sector. The native Sluissi lived in habitation spheres that were placed at or near the surface of the planet, allowing them the abiity to access the planet's resources.

 

Sluis Van Central
This space station, orbiting Sluis Van, was loyal to the New Republic.

 

Sluis Van Outer Starfighter Base
This was the New Republic's primary starfighter base, located in orbit around Sluis Van during the early years of the New Republic.

 

Sluis Van Shipyards
This orbital shipyard is controlled by the Sluissi. In a stationary orbit around Sluis Van, the shipyard is a long, multi-segmented station with a wide central tunnel. Each of sixteen modules contains starship repair facilities, along with living accommodations and shops.

 

Bpfassh
A twin planet orbiting a star with the same name, Bpfassh is located in the Sluis sector. It was at one time the site of a Dark Jedi uprising (77-74 PE), and the locals have since then been distrustful of the Jedi. The Bpfassh have since then joined the Alliance and the New Republic. Following the death of the Emperor at Endor, Bpfassh was the site of Thrawn's first major strike against the New Republic. It was also the site of a Noghri attack on Princess Leia. Its day is variable in length, due to the unique gravitational forces the twin pieces exert on each other. The twin planets also have a large number of moons.

 

Praesitlyn
A planet which houses a communicationed station in the Sluis sector during the early years of the New Republic, Praesitlyn was one of the thousands of worlds that allied themselves with Count Dooku and the Separatists during the years just prior to the Clone Wars.

 

Dagobah
The primary world in the Dagobah system, this swamp planet was home to Yoda in the years following the Jedi Purge. It was located in the Sluis sector. Several colony ships tried to establish settlements on Dagobah, but the swamps proved too dangerous or inhospitable to support colonization. A few survivors managed to eke out an existence in the swamps, though. Near the end of the Bpfassh Dark Jedi Insurrection, one of the fleeing Dark Jedi hid on Dagobah. No one knows what happened to the Dark Jedi, but it was surmised that he died there. Furthermore, his knowledge of the Dark Side of the Force caused the planet to be bathed in Dark Side energy. This might also explain why the Jedi Master Yoda was able to hide on Dagobah during Palpatine's purge of the Jedi, since his Light Side strength would have been masked by the amount of Dark Side energy on the planet. The planet's day lasts 23 standard hours, and its year is 341 local days long.

 

Dagobah System
Located in the Sluis sector, and contained the planet Dagobah. It doesn't appear on any of the Alliance's charts, when Luke tries to search out Master Yoda, even though it was involved in the Dark Jedi uprising which began on Bpfassh.

 

Hxil
This was an abandoned launch platform, located in the Sluis Van System during the eraly decades of the New Republic.

 

Kerest
This dying planet is the homeworld of the Kerestian race. The planet, located far from many trade routes within the Sluis Sector, has been in an ice age ever since the Kerestian sun underwent strange changes. The sun's power was greatly reduced, and the amount of light and heat reaching Kerest was greatly diminished. As a result, the Kerestions were forced to resort to any means possible to survive. This has created two unique groups of Kerestians: the savage descendants of those who survived on Kerest, and the less intense descendants of off-world Kerestians. The planet was discovered by exploration vessels of the House of Tagge.

Sesswenna Sector

 

Sullust
Primary planet in the Sullust system, known for its mineral mines and technologies. It is a volcanically-active world with a hot, noxious atmosphere wracked by violent storms. Thus, the native Sullustans prefer to live underground, in the cool, humid caves that riddle the planet's mantle. There are also a number of underground lakes and caverns that support a surprising amount of life forms. The huge, diversified SoroSuub Corporation grew out of the caves, and when the Sullustan Council faltered, SoroSuub announced that it was aligned the planet with the Empire. Many of the working class Sullustans could not believe this, and a wave of Rebellion swept through the planet's inhabitants just before the Battle of Endor. It was then allowed to be the stop-over site for the massing Rebel fleet prior to the destruction of the second Death Star.

 

Averam
A planet on which Winter was known as the Targeter during the Rebellion. According to Rebellion, Averam is in the Sesswenna Sector.

 

Balmorra
An Imperial world responsible for the manufacture of many of the Empire's most destructive weapons, including the AT-ST and many of the Emperor's war droids, Balmorra was originally a base of operations for the Colicoids. Located between Kuat and Neimoidia, Balmorra was one of the many worlds which seceded from the Old Republic. After the Battle of Endor, Balmorra was attacked by the group of Dark Jedi who tried to re-establish the Empire after the reborn Empire's death, but the Balmorrans repelled the Empire using the weapons they had built. The planet then became somewhat loyal to the New Republic, initiating trade with the government. When Sedriss rose to power, he forced the Balmorrans into an uneasy arms alliance following a battle between the various war machines produced on the planet. According to the Rebellion computer game, Balmorra is located in Sesswenna Sector.

 

Bortras
C'baoth's home world. According to Rebellion, Bortras is located in Sesswenna Sector.

 

Corsin
A planet located in the Greater Plooriod Cluster. It was a planet known for its devotion to life, but it was subjugated by the Empire and occupied during the Galactic Civil War. It was also the site of famous swoop races. According to Rebellion, Corsin is located in Sesswenna Sector.

 

Eriadu
This planet, located in the Seswenna Sector of the Outer Rim, was the seat of Grand Moff Tarkin's early power. Located near the intersection of the Rimma Trade Route and the Hydian Way, Eriadu was where Tarkin developed the Tarkin Doctrine. The planet is known for its beautiful silver and blue shell jewelry. During the last decades of the Old Republic, the Eriadu Manufacturing shipyards brought financial prosperity to the planet, under Tarkin's political direction. However, the industrialization which occurred caused massive amounts of pollution to be dumped into the environment. Drost Elegin left his family on Eriadu before leaving to meet Roganda Ismaren on Belsavis.

 

Ghorman
The primary planet in the Ghorman System, it was the site of a massacre in which the newly-named Emperor Palpatine wiped out the planet's populace. Located in the Sern Sector, just outside the Core Worlds, Ghorman's populace was not in favor of the Empire. Moff Willhuf Tarkin wiped out a group of protesters by landing his warship on them for no apparent reason, other than to help Palpatine establish his evil presence in the galaxy. Note that Rebellion places Ghorman in the Sesswenna Sector. The massacre was a rallying cry for early leaders of the Alliance, including Mon Mothma. The Empire later established a base there. When the Alliance learned of the base's construction, it sent out a squadron of starfighters, which eliminated a number of supply ships and delayed the completion of the base for an entire year.

 

Moshaw Dark Star
This black hole was located on the edge of Sesswenna Sector.

 

Svivren
A well-defended, major commercial world near Berchest. According to Rebellion, Svivren is located in Sesswenna Sector. It has several major climate zones, including harshly cold mountains and uncomfortably warm plains.

 

Uvena III
This planet is the primary planet in the Uvena System, a multiworld system in the Periphery region. Uvena III is the homeworld of the Shistavanen race. According to Rebellion, Uvena III is located in Sesswenna Sector. Note that Alien Encounters claims the Shistavene were native to Uvena Prime.

Mayagil Sector

 

Mayagil Sector
This area of the galaxy contained the Mayagil System, and neighbored both the Sluis and Seswenna Sectors.

 

Clak'Dor IV
This planet, located in the Mayagil System, was another world populated by the Bith.

 

Clak'Dor VII
The homeworld of the Bith race, this planet was once a beautiful world. The Bith, however, nearly destroyed the planet in a chemical war. It was the seventh planet in the Colu System, in the Mayagil sector.

 

Colu System
A planetary system in the Mayagil Sector, it contains Clak'Dor.

 

Dodra F'ass
This Bith Senator represented his homeworld of Clak'Dor VII, as well as the rest of Mayagil Sector, to the Old Republic Senate, in the years leading up to the Clone Wars. He remained noncommittal about secession from the Republic, despite intense pressure from neighboring sectors.

 

Mayagil System
This star system, located in the Mayagil Sector of the galaxy, containing the planet

 Clak'Dor VII.

 

Virmeude
This cold world was located on the far Rimward edge of Mayagil Sector. It served as one of the Alliance's most Coreward bases, under the cover of the Issham Mining Corporation.

Boeus Sector

 

Boeus Sector
A section of the galaxy located in the Expansion Region. During the time of the New Republic, it was governed by Darvon Jewett, who is a supporter of the Republic.

 

Wroona
This planet was the homeworld of the Wroonian race. It was a small, blue world located in the edge of the Inner Rim, and was the primary planet in the Wroona System. Much of the planet was covered in water, at it had a rich history of seagoing commerce. It was located near Boeus Sector.

 

Yag'Dhul
Homeworld of the Givin, this is a small, dense planet with three moons. The moons exert intense gravitational forces on the small planet because they orbit in the opposite direction from Yag'Dhul. Yag'Dhul itself has a retrograde rotation of 175 standard hours, while the moons orbit the planet once every 53 standard hours. Thus, a month on Yag'Dhul is actually 122 hours shorter than its day. This sets up huge tidal forces that continually shifts its oceans and atmosphere from one side of the planet ot the other. This results in the displacement of the atmosphere and water around the planet, creating pockets of hard vacuum in certain areas. Many of the planet's lifeforms have simply survived by traveling with the tides, while the Givin have adapted by growing flexible exoskeletons that protect them from vacuum. They also developed hermetically-sealed cities that ensured a constant atmosphere,even during periods of low pressure. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Nom Anor infiltrated the ranks of the Givin and planned to subjugate the system for use as a staging area from which to attack the Core. These plans were nearly thwarted when Corran Horn, Anakin Solo, and Tahiri Veila obtained control of the Stalking Moon and got inside the Yag'Dhul defenses. Eventually, though, the Yuuzhan Vong defeated the Givin resistance and took control of the system.

 

Calus
Primary planet in the Calus System. The system is connected to the Wroona System via Keller's Void.

 

Keller's Void
This region of hyperspace connected the Calus and Wroona Systems. It was named for the trader who first discovered it.

Veragi Sector

 

Veragi Sector
This area of space is one of the few sectors without any form of stellar body. The sector was simply an empty void, although it held a secret hyperspace jump beacon placed there some twenty years after the Battle of Endor by Kyp Durron. He and the Dozen-and-Two Avengers used the jump beacon as a gathering point and escape vector during their hunts for smugglers and other criminals. They jump beacon had recorded the fly-by of the ExGal-4 Spacecaster shuttle, on it way to Helska under the command of Danni Quee, which alerted Kyp to the trouble on Belkadan

Kathol Sector

 

Kathol Sector
This is a remote section of the galaxy which was overtaken by Moff Sarne shortly after the Battle of Endor. The Empire had held the sector during the later years of the New Order, but Sarne was unable to take control of more than a quarter the entire sector. The Imperial capital of the sector was Kal-Shebbol. Much of the sector is uncharted, especially the Kathol Outback and the Kathol Rift.

 

Aaris III
This remote planet was located in Kathol Sector, just off the Trition Trade Route from Kolatill. The third world in the Aaris System, it was a lush, tropical world covered with jungles and dotted with abrupt mountain ranges. A variety of ruins were scattered across its surface, representing the only remnants of the original civilization of Aaris which inhabited the planet. During the last years of the New Order, Aaris III was also the site of an outlaw camp, located on the far side of the planet from the Place of Kastays.

 

Binaros
This planet was located in a system of young worlds was located in the Kathol Outback. The surface of Binaros was covered with dense forests that supported an incredible variety of flora and fauna, although no sentient life has evolved on the planet yet. The average day on Binaros lasts 32 standard hours, and the planet's year encompasses 110 local days. Binaros was the site of a small cult which worshipped a hermit-like deity. The small colony established by the cultists was eradicated by disease, but their single temple remained intact. Imperial forces took control of the temple, using it as a research base dedicated to producing biochemical weapons. When Moff Sarne was forced to flee Kal'Shebbol, the base was abandonded.

 

Blue Swirl
This section of the Kathol Rift was a relatively clear area which contained a few lifeless planetoids and minimal interference.

 

Brolsam
This agricultural planet was located in Kathol Sector, on a branch of the Trition Trade Route between Torize and Kal'Shebbol. Much of the planet's agriculture was run by a colony of Fefze, who contributed greatly to the planet's development, both economically and artistically. During the early years of the New Republic, the population of the planet was locked in a guerrilla war with the Imperial forces which were controlling it. The Fefze were the most active, and recruited several Rodian and Human factions to help them disrupt Imperial activites.

 

Charis
This planet was located just off the main Trition Trade Route from Kolatill, in the Kathol Sector of the galaxy. The planet's economy was based on manufacturing and information technology. The natives of Charis staged several violent uprisings in protest against Imperial Moff Kentor Sarne, but Sarne was brutal in putting and end to them. Mosy of the planet's major cities were bombed out, reducing the population by fifteen percent.

 

Corjain
This planet was located in the Kathol Sector ofthe galaxy, just off the Trition Trade Route from Kolatill and Charis. A marginally habitabel planet that was rich with metals and ores, Corjain was extensively mined by a number of corporations. Several small communities of non-humans grew up around the mines, and the Bothans established a listening post on the planet early in the New Republic.

 

Danoor
This planet, located in the Nah'Malis System of the Kathol Outback, was colonized about 100 years before the Battle of Endor. The colonists were scientists who wanted to dedicate their research to studying the Kathol Rift. When word reached other planets in Kathol Sector of Danoor's natural beauty and resources, other groups established settlements there as well. Shortly before Emperor Palpatine created the New Order, a stray asteroid from the Duhrib Belt smashed into Danoor, killing much of its native population and destroying large areas of the settlements. Contact with Danoor was cut off for several years, as the Empire left the world to itself. Danoor is a temperate world of varying topography. Its day lasts 25 standard hours, and its year lasts 201 local days. The planet was ruled by a group of Ministers, each of which represented about half a million residents. It was the Minsters, searching for a way to pay for its operations, who invited many corporations to establish branches on Danoor. However, many of the Ministers made concessions in order to draw corporate leaders to Danoor, and so the corporations have an incredible amount of political sway. After Rolf Treidum and the Lialic II attacked the FarStar near Danoor, he then launched a devastator torpedo at the planet. Following the destruction of a huge area of the planet, the Ministers of Danoor told the New Republic to stay away and not bring any more war and destruction to their world.

 

Dayark
This moon, which orbits the gas giant Nepe, in the Episol System of the Kathol Outback, is the most populous world in the Kathol Republic. An agricultural world, Dayark also served as the capital of the Republic and the seat of its government. It is tide-locked to Nepe's orbit, and so the sunward side of the moon is the only habitable area.

 

Demonsgate
This planet was located near Yvara, within the veil of the Kathol Rift. Known as NCW-86 on Imperial star charts, the planet was named for the volcanic activity which raged across its surface, which often ignited the gases in its atmosphere and appeared to be aflame when seen from space. Despite this inhospitable environment, Demonsgate had a healthy and diverse range of lifeforms. A day on Demonsgate lasted 31 standard hours, and its year encompassed 224 local days. It was on Demonsgate that the Aing-Tii Monks recovered the Codex from the navigator Makezh, fighting off bounty hunters and Imperial forces to obtain the device.

 

Duhrib Belt
This is an asteroid belt found in the Nah'Malis System of the Kathol Outback, located between the fourth and fifth planets of the system.

 

Ehjenla
This small planet, located near the center of the Kathol Outback, began emerging from an ice age during the last centuries of the Old Republic. Much of the planet remained locked under polar ice caps after the Battle of Endor. Ehjenla is the homeworld of the Tuhgri race.

 

Episol System
This planetary system is one of the member worlds of the Kathol Republic. It has four natural planets, only one of which is marginally habitable. It is a desert world which supports several mining colonies. The most widely settled body in the system is Dayark, a moon which orbits the system's single gas giant, Nepe.

 

Exocron
This world is the primary planet in the Exocron System, located in the Kathol Outback and hidden within a gas cloud. Much of the population of the Outback is unaware of the existence of Exocron, since it is located within a nebula of gases that interfere with most sensor systems. Most star maps of the Outback fail to show Exocron, which is just as well for the planet's inhabitants. The planet was originally settled by colonists of the Cabal, who fled the hypocrisy and "plastic society" of the Core Worlds during the early time of the Old Republic to find the world of Exo. Their ship, the Exocros Cabal, was damaged in an asteroid storm, and wandered the galaxy until it found Exocron. The planet was named for their ship, and the colonists destroyed their ship and set up a guardian force to keep it safe for future use. In the meantime, the majority of the colonists began living off the land and keeping to themselves. The guardians became known as the Devisors, and became the upper of two social castes. Any new technology had to be approved by the Devisors before it could be made available for general use. The splitting of the social structure was not easy, though, and many small battles erupted between factions who wanted more control or more freedom. A series of unification wars swept the planet in the years just prior to the Battle of Yavin, re-establishing the position of the Devisors. Jorj Car'das retired to Exocron after running into the Aing-Tii monks.

 

Galtea
This colony planet was located on the boundary between the most inhabited parts of Kathol Sector and the Marcol Void.

 

Gandle Ott
This planet was primary world in the Ott System, and was the site of one of the first settlements in the Kathol Sector, some six centuries before the Battle of Endor. Known as a "gasper" to its original colonists, Gandle Ott was a mild planet, with a temperate atmosphere which could sustain most humanoid life. During the early years of the New Republic, the planet was often referred to as "Little Coruscant," at least in Kathol Sector. At that time, the population of Gandle Ott was counted in the billions, and the planet was known as an industrial power in the sector. The planetary government was partial to the New Republic, despite the fact that it was nominally under the control of Moff Kentor Sarne.

 

Ivatch
This planet was located near Shintel, in the Kathol Sector of the galaxy. It was one of several planets which supplied natural ores and metals to the industrial world of Gandle Ott.

 

Jangelle
This warm world is located in the Kathol Outback. It's surface is covered with sandy lowlands broken by a complex network of rivers, streams, and deltas. Large, deep bodies of water are rare on Jangelle. The planet was settled by a group of refugees who fled the Empire when it invaded Kathol Sector, and they maintained contact with the rest of the sector - and Moff Sarne's activities - during supply runs to Gandle Ott and Pembric II. The colonies on Jangelle are low-tech settlements, although there are two ion cannons and a small navy protecting them. The leadership of Jangelle formed a mutual defense pact with the planets of the Kathol Republic in order to maintain their world's freedom.

 

Kal'Shebbol
A planet located in Kathol Sector, Kal-Shebbol served as the Imperial capital of the sector during the New Order and into the early years of the New Republic. It was originally settled some 400 years before the Battle of Endor by a group of escaped Twi'lek slaves. During the last years of the Imperial presence in Kathol Sector, Kal'Shebbol was ruled by Moff Kentor Sarne, until the New Republic launched an offensive attack to oust Sarne from power. The planet was infiltrated by Katarn Commandos, and the Imperial forces were routed. Unfortunately for the New Republic, Sarne escaped, and had to be chased across Kathol Sector.

 

Kathol
This was the name given to the only remaining world in the Kathol civilization, located deep within the Kathol Sector. Kathol orbited a binary star, and was surrounding inside and outside its orbit by asteroid belts formed from the debris of other, destroyed planets. The planet was inhabited by a variety of alien races which evolved from genetically-engineered creatures of the Kathol and DarkStryder, including the Charr Ontee, the Yapi, and the Yimi.

 

Kathol Outback
A wild area of space located in Kathol Sector, across the Marcol Void from more populated areas. Much of the Outback is unexplored, although there are several small settlements maintained by colonists, refugees, criminals, and religious cults. Most of the settlements were unaware of the events in the rest of the galaxy, and there were several colonies which had never heard of any government but the Old Republic.

 

Kathol Rift
This collection of young suns and nebulous gas clouds forms the boundary of the Kathol Outback, along with the Marcol Void. No one has been able to navigate through the Rift and return, although it is rumored that the Aing-Tii monks use the Rift as a way to hide their worlds.

 

Kolatill
This planet, located at one end of the Trition Trade Route, was located in Kathol Sector. The planet's economy was based on the manufacture of repulsorlift drive systems.

 

Mairne
This planet was located in Kathol Sector, near Gandle Ott and Charis. It was one of several planets which supplied natural ores and metals to the industrial world of Gandle Ott.

 

Marcol Void
This stretch of empty space separates the Kathol Outback from the rest of Kathol Sector. It is approximately 30 light-years across, and has never been mapped. What is known is that there are no planets in the Void, and very little debris. A flight across the Void, with standard hyperdrive technology, takes about 14 standard days to complete. There are two known hyperspace routes through the Void: The Galtea Run, which connects Galtea to Timbra Ott; and the Sebiris Run, which connects Sebiris to the worlds of the Pimbrellan League.

 

Nepe
This gas giant, located in the Episol System of the Kathol Outback, is orbited by the populated moon of Dayark.

 

Oon Tien
This planet was located in Kathol Sector, just off the Trition Trade Route from Torize and Kolatill. A wet, mountainous planet, Oon Tien was the homeworld of the Jarell race. Imperial Moff Kentor Sarne established three orbital star docks near Oon Tien, to serve as repair facilities for his fleet of starships.

 

Peirs
This planet was located just off the Trition Trade Route from Gandle Ott, in Kathol Sector. It was one of several planets which supplied natural ores and metals to the industrial world of Gandle Ott.

 

Pembric II
One of the primary trade worlds of Kathol Sector, Pembric II was surrounded by an asteroid field. It was originally settles as a colony world, but had to be terraformed after a long history of meteorite bombardment. The colonization efforts were largely ineffective, although the planet developed into a perfect base of operations for a vareity of criminals and gangsters, mainly because of its relative isolation behind within the asteroids.

 

Pitann
This harsh, desert world is one of the member worlds of the Kathol Republic. Much of the planet's economy is based on the mining operations which cover the landscape, and the settlers of Pitann are often suspicious of outsiders. Pitann has a short day, which lasts only 12 standard hours. However, its year consumes 841 local days.

 

Q'Maere
This planet was located just inside the Kathol Rift, a short distance from Danoor. Of course, actually reaching Q'Maere took a skilled crew more than a week's time. The planet was the site of a scientific outpost established by the University of Sanbra. The crew of the FarStar made a run for Q'Maere, shortly after entering the Rift, when they discovered that the food stores they had obtained at Danoor were contaminated. The planet itself was an inhospitable world covered with ammonia seas, which were sparsely dotted with volcanic islands. The atmosphere was poisonous, and there was no known life on the planet. The average day on Q'Maere lasted 36 hours, and its year encompassed 344 local days.

 

Qu'Mock Station
This space station is the primary settlement of the Qektoth Confederation, and is located in the Kathol Outbakc near Uukaablis. It was originally commissioned as a scientific outpost aimed at exploring the region of space near Gandle Ott, but the station disappeared just months after beginning its work. Records discovered later explain that the station was hijacked by a group of escaped criminals led by a team of crimelors, and the station was towed back to their hidden base for refitting. When the pirates' homeworld was beseiged with earthquakes and rendered unlivable, the station was abandoned until it was found by Drigir Tarrens. Tarrens told the Qektoth Confederation of its existence, and it was restored for their own uses. The Qektoth placed the station in an empty region of space near Uukaablis, so that they could perform their research in peace. Qu'mock Station is a long, needle-shaped station guided by four huge solar fins deployed at the stern.

 

Sapella
This planet, located in the Kathol Outback, is one of the most isolated worlds of Kathol Sector. It was located between Timbra Ott and Binaros, but was not as profitable a run as going to Jangelle and the Kathol Republic. The planet had entered an ice age during the last millennium of the Old Republic, and much of the planet was covered by the advancing polar ices caps. A band of temperate lowlands straddled the equator, and this fertile land was settled by a group of colonists. The colonists there grew fruits and grains for trade with Timbra Ott, and created a tasty wine from their grapes. This trade allowed the colonists to maintain a mutual defense pact with Timbra Ott, although the Sapellan navy was quite small and outdated.

 

Sebiris
This jungle planet was located on the edge of the Marcol Void near the galactic boundary, in the most remote area of Kathol Sector. It was the homeworld of the Sebiri people.

 

Shatuun
This planet is a largely uninhabited world found in the Kathol Outback between the Uukaablis and Nah'Malis Systems. Its surface is dominated by rugged moutain ranges which are continually strafed by intense electrical storms. This combination means that travellers between Uukaablis and Danoor rarely, if ever, stop here. This was quite all right with a pair of Duinuogwuin star dragons who decided to reproduce there. They created a home for themselves some 60 years before the Battle of Endor, but were quite reclusive in their ways. They would accept visitors they believe they can trust, since they didn't want the rest of the Outback to know they were there.

 

Shintel
This planet was located in Kathol Sector, between Tanquilla Beach and Ivatch. It was largely uninhabited, although the Empire established a supply and patrol base on the planet during the last years of the New Order.

 

Tanquilla Beach
This space station shadowport was located near Shintel and Pembric II, in the Kathol Sector of the galaxy. For those smugglers who worked in the Kathol Rift, the Tanquilla Beach station was a kind of general store and repair facility, because the wilds of the RIt were rarely patrolled. The Tanquilla Beach station was founded by a team of outlaw techs which included Bequesh. A lumpy, cobbled-together station, Tanquilla Beach measured 900 meters in height was was manned by a crew of 1,200. Eighty-five gunners operated the station's weaponry, which included 80 turbolaser batteries, twenty ion cannons, and ten tractor beams.

 

Timbra Ott
This planet, located in the Kathol Outback, stands at the far end of the Galtea Run. Originally settled as a sister colony to Gandle Ott in order to accommodate those settlers who were looking for more isolation than usual, Timbra Ott became a penal colony maintained by the government of Kal'Shebbol after a series of earthquakes and tidal waves destroyed much of the settlement there. The planet's natural beauty recovered in time, and the convicts who were exiled there worked hard to make the planet liveable. When the Empire decided to strand the colonists on Timbra, rather than maintaining the facility, a series of riots broke out before a group of individuals took control of the planet and formed their own government. Since that time, the planet has re-asserted itself as a simple colony world, although most other residents of the Kathol Outback still consider the people of Timbra Ott to be convicts and criminals.

 

Torize
This planet was located in Kathol Sector, along the Trition Trade Route between Kolatill and Kal'Shebbol. It was a planet whose economy was based on heavy manufacturing, and was orbited by a variety of space stations.

 

Uukaablis
This planet, located in the Kathol Outback, is the homeworld of the Uukaablian race. It is a temerate world covered by forested moutnains. The average day on the world lasts 28 standard hours, and its year lasts 426 local days.

 

Yvara
This planet, located within the Kathol Rift, was the homeworld of the Yvarema race. It was a dry, temperate planet of low mountains and fungus-covered plains. It orbited a blue-white star in Kathol Sector. The average day on Yvara lasted 36 standard hours, while its year lasted 453 local days.

Stenness Sector

 

Ithull
A planet in the Stenness system, Ithull was the homeworld of the Colossus Wasp and the Ithullan race. The Ithullans were wiped out by the Mandalorians. A year on the planet lasted 25 standard months.

 

Kamsul
This is one of the seven inhabited worlds of the Stenness System.

 

Ambria
The world which Jedi Master Thon tamed, it is a ringed world in the Stenness System. It is barren and sparse, and was once full of Dark Side energy. At one point in TOJ, Oss Willum says that Thon rid the planet Arkania of the Dark Side, instead of Ambria. When Master Thon arrived there, he pushed back the Dark Side into its source, Lake Natth. He lived there from that point until his death. The planet became a research location several millennia later, when BioTech Industries set up a campus there. It has four moons.

 

Stennes Node
Located in the Inner Rim, this was a collection of densely-clustered star systems which contained many mineral- and ore-rich worlds. Note that this may be the same location as the Stenness System.

 

Stenness
This planet was the primary world of the Stenness System.

 

Stenness System
A system of 7 mining worlds in three primary star systems, encompassing about 25 humanoid races. Due to the demand for the ores mined on the various planets, it was given its own hyperspace jump gate very early on. According to Dark Empire, they were discovered about 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. However, Tales of the Jedi has it as an already-established system, with its own hyperspace jump gate. The mines have long since given out, but the wealth they provided is still generating interest and good lifestyles for the planets' inhabitants. The system's inhabitants, often refered to as 'Nessies, are highly addicted to spice.

Farfin Sector

 

Ansion
This planet was located near Vortex and Bilbringi, and was orbited by two moons. The homeworld of the Ansionian people, Ansion was a world covered with sweeping grasslands and plains. This landscape was often swept by high winds, as there were few mountains to break up the wind. As a result, most species found on the planet were either avians which rode the winds or sure-footed enough to remain on the ground. However, there were stands of trees and sharp, volcanic vents dotting the landscape, breaking the seeming monotony of the plains. Some ten years after the Battle of Naboo, Ansion was one of the first planets to vote to secede from the Old Republic, an event which held great political implications. Unknown to many, Count Dooku and the leaders of the growing secession movement had planned to use Ansion as the first of several planets to actually secede. Hoping that a plethora of planetary alliances would be enforced, Dooku believed that many more planets would follow Ansion and secede, thereby destroying the already fractured Republic. However, the Jedi Knights were dispatched to ensure that Ansion remained part of the Republic. Eventually, an accord between the peoples of the plains and the city dwellers was made to remain with the Republic, forestalling a great turmoil in the Republic. Decades later, Ansion was overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong as they made their way toward Coruscant some twenty-seven years after the Battle of Yavin.

 

Aphran IV
This planet, located near Bilbringi, was the primary world in the Aprhan System. A relatively poor world, Aphran IV was a warm planet which lacked polar ice caps. The fact that no moons orbitted Aphran IV meant that there were no tides, so much of the planet's water supply remained static. The human natives of the planet were known throughout the galaxy for their exquisite woodworking.

 

Bilbringi System
This system lacked any true planets, but was choked with asteroid belts and other drifting debris. The system was under Imperial control until the Battle of Bilbringi.

 

Bilbringi VII
This medium-sized planetoid is part of the larger Bilbringi System asteroid field. It was also the site of an Imperial shipyard under the command of General Drost, during the reign of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

 

Byss
The primary planet in the binary star system of Abyss and Byss, and the homeworld of the Abyssin race. It is an arid world, with isolated pockets of fertile ground. The planet's surface is baked when it rotates in between the two stars in a strange figure-eight orbit. This requires that the Abyssin continually move to the more fertile areas. The planet's plant life has also adapted the ability to send out large taproots to collect any available water.

 

Abyss
One of the two binary stars that dominate the Byss-Abyss system.

 

Byss
One of the two binary stars that dominate the Byss-Abyss system.

 

Vortex
This planet was the homeworld of the Vors, and the site of the Concert of the Winds. Its rotational axis is very steep, causing extremely sudden seasonal changes. This causes large atmospheric storms to rage across its surface, making landing from orbit difficult at best. It has no natural satellites. It has a temperate climate, and is covered by forests, mountains, and plains. Its day lasts 18 standard hours. Its year lasts 421 local days.

 

Ryustlore
Type: Terrestrial
Temperature: Temperate
Atmosphere: Type I (breathable)
Hydrosphere: Dry
Gravity: Standard
Terrain: Mountains, giant forests, cystal fields, hills
Length of day: 25 standard hours
Length of year: 153 local days
Sapient Species: Humans, various aliens, Children of the Light(N)
Starport: Limited Services
Population: Varies
Planet Function: Hidden Base
Government: Blue Star Pirates
Tech Level: Space (at BSP base), none
Major Exports: Pirates
Major Imports: Mid technology, high technology, loot, foodstuffs
System Name: Blue Star

The most notable point of interest on Ryustlore is the Blue Star Pirate base located in the northern hemisphere, in a nitch of the mountains (which lie to the south and west of it), just south of a large crystal field. Like many fortresses the base faces north (towards the fields), thus any opponents attacking by land would be looking into the sun. The mountains contain minerals that effectively reflect sensor scans, providing a natural jamming field. Built into the mountains, the base itself would be difficult to spot for anyone who doesn't know of its existence. Though, Ryustlore has many potential resources (including the crystals), erratic weatehr conditions (and the local lifeforms) make mining operations unviable. The Pirates also feel that a large scale mining operation would be too dificult to keep hidden. The crystal fields to the north of the BSP base are also home to a strange crystaline-based lifeform. Information on these beings as well as whether they are sentiant is scarce, however, since the pirates generally avoid contact. To the east lies the dried river bed, beyond which are the great forests of Ryustlore which might be considered to rival those of Endor if anyone knew of their existence aside from the BSP. A small stream still trickles through the riverbed. The river itself has actually been diverted by a natural dam further up the mountains. The sun rises at the base are spectacular for any pirate willing to get up early enough to see the first rays of light caught by the crystals.

Kira Sector

 

Kira
This star is the primary body in the Kira System, which is located between the Lazerian and Ropagi Systems. Its location was discovered by the Haik Expedition, which used it as a hyperspace anchor and connected the Enarc Run and the Harrin Trade Corridor via the Kira Run.

 

Kira I
This was the first planet in the Kira System, discovered by an exploratory expedition during the height of the Old Republic. Republic ships returned to the system years later, only to find that the inner three planets, including Kira I, had been destroyed. No explanation was ever given, and the system was forgotten until the Haik Expedition used it to anchor the Kira Run.

 

Kira II
This was the only habitable planet in the Kira System, discovered by an exploratory expedition during the height of the Old Republic. The planet was known as Kira Prime until Republic ships returned to the system years later. They found that the inner three planets, including Kira II, had been destroyed. The asteroid field which orbited Kira inside Kira IV was later renamed Kira Prime. No explanation was ever given, and the system was forgotten until the Haik Expedition used it to anchor the Kira Run.

 

Kira III
This was the third planet in the Kira System, discovered by an exploratory expedition during the height of the Old Republic. Republic ships returned to the system years later, only to find that the inner three planets, including Kira III, had been destroyed. No explanation was ever given, and the system was forgotten until the Haik Expedition used it to anchor the Kira Run.

 

Kira IV
The fourth planet in the Kira System, this is the only world to survive the unusual destruction which ripped through the system several millenia before the Galactic Civil War. The inner three planets were destroyed in an event which has never been explained.

 

Kira Prime
This was originally the name of the second planet in the Kira System, until the inner three planets were mysteriously destroyed. Since then, the asteroid field created from the rubble has been known as Kira Prime.

 

Nigel III
This planet was located in Kira Sector.

 

Nigel IV
The fourth planet in the Nigel System, this world is located along the Enarc Run. The natives of Nigel IV are a peaceful people, and only formed a republican government at the insistence of the natives during the New Order. It was at this time that Nigel IV became involved with galactic trade, and the influx of travelers and spacers brought crime to the world. The laws and penal system of Nigel IV have been very strict since the Galactic Civil War, and have been successful in keeping the planet crime-free. A cool planet covered with flat plains and vast glaciers, Nigel IV rotates once every 20 standard hours, and orbits its star once every 325 local days.

 

Roldalna
This is the primary planet in the Roldalna System. The system is located along the Enarc Run between the Nigel and Ropagi Systems. Its location also marks the beginning of the Enarc Run spur that connects the Seltos System.

 

Elpur
Sometimes called Elpoor, this planet is the innermost world of the Ropagi System. It is an unremarkable world of desolate, searing, rocky wastes.

 

Ropagi
This yellow-white star is the primary solar body in the Ropagi System. Its location in space anchors one end of the Kira Run.

 

Ropagi II
The second and primary world in the Ropagi System, Ropagi II is remarkable in that the highest point on any land mass is no more than 20 meters above sea level. It also has a normal temperate of around 25 degrees Centigrade, making it a pleasant world for living. The planet is the homeworld of the Ropagu and Kalduu races. Its average days last 30 standard horus, and its year lasts 375 local days.

 

Seltaya
This planet is the thrid of three world which orbit the star Ropagi. Its orbit is quite a distance from Ropagi and the inner planets, Elpur and Ropagi II. It is a frigid ball of rock.

 

Lazerian
This yellow star is the primary solar body in the Lazerian System. It's location in space is used to anchor one end of the Kira Run.

 

Lazerian IV
This planet, the fourth in the Lazerian System, is at one end of the Kira Run. The inhabitants of the planet were extremely loyal to the New Order, a sentiment which echoed the rulership of King Alarik X. A temperate world with varying terrain, Lazerian IV has been heavily industrialized, and a large number of urban centers grew around the various starports. The average day on Lazerian IV lasts 24 standard hours, and its year encompasses 360 local days. A pair of moons orbit the planet.

 

Acorvus
This planet, the third in the Lazerian System, was covered in barren desert. It was the site of the system's penal colony, and was off-limits to non-authorized personnel. Captured dissenters and criminals were incarcerated on Acorvus. The planet has a marginally breathable atmosphere.

 

Alkur
This desolate world is the first planet in the Lazerian System. It is an extremely hot, searing world with no natural life.

 

Dhorian
This planet is the fifth world in the Lazerian System, and was the site of a mining colony that supplied the system with many natural ores. Two moons orbit the planet.

 

Kelro
This hot, desolate world is the second planet in the Lazerian System.

 

Lazerian
This yellow star is the primary solar body in the Lazerian System. It's location in space is used to anchor one end of the Kira Run.

 

Lazerian IV
This planet, the fourth in the Lazerian System, is at one end of the Kira Run. The inhabitants of the planet were extremely loyal to the New Order, a sentiment which echoed the rulership of King Alarik X. A temperate world with varying terrain, Lazerian IV has been heavily industrialized, and a large number of urban centers grew around the various starports. The average day on Lazerian IV lasts 24 standard hours, and its year encompasses 360 local days. A pair of moons orbit the planet.

 

Lazerian IX
This world or frigid, barren rocks is the ninth planet in the Lazerian System.

 

Lazerian VI
This sixth planet in the Lazerian System is a gas giant with eight moons.

 

Lazerian VII
The second of two gas giants in the Lazerian System, Lazerian VII is orbitted by ten natural satellites.

 

Rokwahl   
This was the eighth planet in the Lazerian System, although some interstellar cataclysm has reduced it to rubble. It now forms an asteroid belt between Lazerian VII and Lazerian IX.

Anthos Sector

 

Ketaris
A major commercial world near Berchest.

 

Berchest
Primary planet in the Berchest system, it was a major tourist attraction during the Old Republic, mainly because of Calius saj Leeloo. The Clone Wars severely reduced the tourist trade, and Berchest suffered. When the Empire came into power, Berchest was usurped as an Imperial trade trade world, and has remained under Imperial control following the Battle of Endor. It is described in The Last Command Sourcebook that Berchest is in the Anthos Sector, but The Last Command infers that Berchest is in the Orus Sector.

 

Terhaari
This is the sole moon which orbits the planet Berchest. It exhibits a strong tidal pull on the planet, making the seas of Berchest quite active. As a result, much of the planet's coastline has been eroded to reveal beautiful crystalline formations.

Orus Sector

 

Chazwa
Primary planet in the Chazwa system, also part of Thrawn's false clone traffic link. It is located in the Orus sector.

 

Joiol
Part of Thrawn's false clone traffic link, Joiol is located in the Orus Sector.

 

Poderis
Primary planet in the Poderis system, in the Orus Sector, Poderis is a "marginal" world of tough, stubborn colonists. One of the possible sources of Imperial clones, leaked by Thrawn in an effort to throw the Republic off its search. It has a ten-hour rotational cycle and a severe axial tilt, which creates intense windstorms. The planet's inhabitants have built huge shield-barriers around their cities to dampen and deflect the winds.

 

Bakura
This planet was settled some 153 years before the Battle of Endor, with a second wave of colonization near the end of the Clone Wars. Initial settlements were established by the Bakur Corporation, and Bakura was ruled by a Prime Minister and Senate. It was re-discovered by the Empire's Imperial Study Survey 60774 and placed under Imperial control about three years before the Battle of Endor. The planet was known for its exports of repulsorlift parts, fruit candy, and liqueur. Bakura was located on the edge of the Rim worlds, the third in a system of eight planets. It is a lush, forested world not unlike Endor, with two moons. Both moons had been heavily mined for materials used in the construction of the second Death Star. Because of its location on the opposite side of the galaxy from the Corporate Sector, shipments between Bakura and the Corporate Sector were routed through Bothan space to avoid the dense gravity mass of the Core Worlds. During the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Bakuran people were fooled into allowing the Keeramak to consecrate their planet for the P'w'eck Emancipation Movement. In reality, the Keeramak consecrated the planet - known now as Xwhee - to the Ssi-ruuk, as part of an elaborate plot hatched by the Yuuzhan Vong. The consecration of Bakura as Xwhee meant that the Ssi-ruuk could attack the planet without the fear of dying on a pagan world.

 

Bakura
The name of the primary star in the Bakuran system.

 

Arden
This gas giant was the fourth planet in the Bakura System. Note that The Truce at Bakura simply named this planet Planet 4.

 

Bak
This airless, rocky planet was the innermost world in the Bakura System.

 

Cattamascar
The planet near which the Ssi-ruuk had to perform an emergency re-orientation of the Shriwirr prior to entering the Bakura system.

 

Kur
This airless, rocky planet was the second world in the Bakura System.

 

Planet 5
This rock-and-ice covered world was the fifth planet in the Bakura System.

 

Planet 6
An ice world in the Bakura system, originally attacked by the Ssi-ruuk but left alone when no human life was found on it.

 

Planet 7
This rock-and-ice covered world was the seventh planet in the Bakura System.

 

Planet 8
This rock-and-ice covered world was the eighth planet in the Bakura System.

Gree Enclave

 

Gree Enclave
This area of space, located in the Outer Rim Territories, is controlled by the Gree race, and includes the major worlds of Gree, Asation, Licha In, Lonatro, Malanose, and Te Hasa. Little is known about this area of space, as the Gree keep much of it a secret. Passage through the Gree Enclave by other races is restricted, and any visitor must keep their ships in port on the world of Asation. Visitors are then boarded on the Rokak'k Baran starship, and transported to other Enclave worlds.

 

Asation
One of the main worlds of the Gree Enclave, Asation is home to the crafters of the Gree race. It is also the gateway for visitors to the Enclave, as any being wishing to travel to one of the other Gree worlds must board the Rokak'k Baran there. It is a wet, high-pressure world covered with slimy wetlands and primitive jungles. It is believed that the Gree terraformed the world many millennia ago, using genetically-altered lifeforms to populate it. The Gree who are born to this world are much shorter than those Gree born on the homeworld of Gree. The average day on Asation lasts 18 standard hours, and its year encompasses 380 local days.

 

Gree
This planet is located in the heart of the Gree Enclave, the motherworld of the Gree race. Among the Gree themselves, the planet is revered with awe and wonder. It is known as a harsh, barren world dotted with groupings of ruins separated by wastelands. There is only one major city, teeming with nearly sixty million Gree, although much of the city has been abandoned. The average day on Gree lasts 27 standard hours, and its year encompasses 360 local days. Strange pieces of Gree technology exist within the capital city, although very few Gree known exactly what they do.

 

Lonatro
This planet, located within the Gree Enclave, provides much of the foodstuffs for the Gree worlds. At one time during the vast span of Gree civilization, Lonatro was covered with huge farms and food production facilities. After the decline of the Gree civilization, nearly ninety percent of the world was given over to game preserves and botanical gardens. The remaining land still supplies food to the Gree worlds. The average day on Lonatro lasts 22 standard hours, while its year lasts 340 local days.

 

Malanose
This world, part of the remote Gree Enclave, was once the primary world of the Gree crafter and researcher castes. During the height of Gree civilization, what is known by the Gree as "the most ancient and forgotten time," Malanose was colonized and covered with cities that produced new and ecxiting devices and technologies. As their society declined and the devices which it created were worn out, the Gree raided the buildings of Malanose for any piece of technology they could transport to the other Gree worlds. Only the largest and most bulky pieces of technology were left behind, and remain unused in the abandoned cities. The most famous remaining device is the Totth'k Lotos, a technology that is rumored to provide eternal life. In reality, the Totth'k Lotos simply maximizes a body's structural integrity, allowing a frail, elderly Gree to become a healthy, elderly Gree. The average day on Malanose consumes 18 standard hours, while its year lasts 320 local days.

 

Te Hasa
This planet, one of the worlds of the Gree Enclave, is known for its large concentration of Gree textmasters. The planet is the location of the Great Library of Manuals, which contains vast amounts of information on Gree technology. However, the exact location of the planet is a well-guarded secret, and Te Hasa has become known as the "hidden world" of the Gree Enclave. Since the decline of Gree civilization, Te Hasa has become a storehouse for devices and technologies that they no longer understand or have forgotten how to use. It is a desert world, and the storehouses of devices are located beneath the many oases that dot the landscape. These storehouses are maintained by a close-knit community of Gree which are hoping to unlock the many secrets contained within the devices. A day on Te Hasa lasts about 29 standard hours, and its year encompasses 296 local days.

 

Trassitan
This planet was located near the Gree Enclave.

Corva Sector

 

Corva Sector
Located in the Outer Rim, the Corva Sector is home to the Delari and H'Ken planetary systems.

 

Betha II
This low-gravity planet is located within the Betha System, which sits at the midpoint of the Danarc Run in Corva Sector. It is a popular world with the smugglers who ply the Run. It was believed to be the center of operations for the Kaarenth Dissension by New Republin Intelligence. The planet is really nothing more than a yellow-orange ball of rock. Its thin atmosphere contains very little moisture, leaving the surface of the planet barren and dry. Many millennia before the Galactic Civil War, Betha II was much more inviting, as its atmosphere still held water. This made is a thriving port along the Danarc Run. However, the planet's low gravity mean that it couldn't hold its atmosphere for long, and this eventually led to the drying out of the planet's ecosystem. The original colonists abandoned the world, and it was uninhabited until smugglers began using it as a based some 30 years before the Battle of Bilbringi. The average day on Betha II lasts 20 standard hours, and its year encompasses 117 local days. Very little habitation exists aboveground on the planet, since the dry surface is often swept clean by dust and sand storms. The caves and canyons of the planet have been expanded and connected with tunnels to support life underground.

 

Corva
This planet was located in the Galaan System of Corva Sector. The Old Republic tried to establish a colony on the planet, but it was wiped out when a group of clodhoppers were set loose on the planet. The insectoids, native to the planet Naboo, were believed to have arrived in a shipment of grain, and quickly devastated the planet. All the plant life on Corva was eaten or destroyed, and 87% of the colonists were also eaten by the clodhoppers.

 

Corva Yag
This planet was the site of the grisly murder of 300 colonists, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. While the resulting public safety briefings claimed the deaths were due to a batch of sabotaged 87-RM collector droids, many felt that the colonists had stumbled upon a secret Imperial laboratory and were "silenced."

 

Delari Prime
This primary planet in the Delari System, located in the Corva Sector, was a bountiful world until it was hit by an asteroid several millenia before the Galactic Civil War. As a result, the planet pushed closer to the twin stars at the center of the system. The climatic changes which occurred rendered Delari Prime a desert wasteland. The Empire established a communications base on Delari Prime, but it was abandoned after the Battle of Endor. The base was eventually sold to an elderly archaeologist.

 

Galaan
This planet, the primary world in the Galaanus System of the Corva Sector, served as the New Republic's primary communications station in the sector. This gas giant provides ample cover for the relay station situated on its northern pole, as well as covering a New Republic Intelligence base. The base was eventually discovered by the Imperial splinter group known as the Kaarenth Dissension and destroyed. The planet's day lasts 132 standard hours, and its annual rotation takes up 479 local days.

 

H'ken
This planet, the primary world in the H'ken System of the Corva Sector, was located within the system's asteroid belt. This belt was nearly 20 kilometers wide, making navigation through the system difficult.

 

Jandoon
This planet is the primary world in the Jandoon System, which is located in the Corva Sector. The inhabitants of the planet died out centuries ago, although the reasons for their disappearance have not been revealed. It is rumored that the spirits of the dead roam the system, and these rumors tend to keep most travellers out of the system. Another rumor states that the planet's inhabitants were technologically advanced, and that fantastic machines and tools can be found deep within the planet. It has been documented that the average day on Jandoon lasts 25 standard hours, and that its year encompasses 273 local days. Note that the Star Wars: Customizable Card Game claims that Jandoon is the homeworld of the Brizzit race.

 

Jaresh
This Outer Rim satellite is found in the Jaresh System, located in the Corva Sector. The moon was purchased by the smuggler Ree Shala, who build her base there. The moon's natural trees grow to many hundreds of meters in height, providing excellent cover. The moon's extremely remote location also helps. The average day on Jaresh lasts 29 standard hours, while its year lasts 98 local days.

 

Tuulab
This Outer Rim planet is located in the Triitus System, situated in the Corva Sector. It was first colonized during the last years of the Old Republic. When the New Order was instituted, a group of 721 colonists, led by Ingas Lek, fled from neighboring worlds to Tuulab to escape Palpatine's tyranny. The planet later became a base of operations for the crimelord Mahk'khar. Tuulab spins rapidly on its axis, completing a full rotation every 18 standard hours. The year on Tuulab lasts 452 local days.

Senex Sector

 

Senex Sector
An area of the galaxy found in the Outer Rim Territories, it had been ruled by a number of familial houses since it was first settled. It was located near the Juvex Sector and the Ninth Quadrant, and was connected to the rest of the galaxy by the Rimma Trade Route. During the Old Republic, Senex Sector was an independent entity that maintained its autonomous stance with the agreement of the Republic. The open acceptance of slavery by the many Houses that controlled the Senex Sector, especially Houses Vandron and Elegin, was what prevented the Republic from accepting Senex Sector as a full member of the Republic.

 

Asmeru
This planet was a dun-colored, arid world in the Senex Sector. Asmeru was once a world of wondrous cities and grand palaces, but a sudden climatic change forced the natives to flee to other worlds in the sector. In the interim years, the cities and buildings fell into disrepair and ruin from neglect. After the climate stabilized, the world was populated by Ossan slaves who were created on Karfeddion but found to be defective in some way. The slaves, bred for agricultural work, managed to survive and established their own culture on the planet.

 

Belsavis
A frozen world on which the native jungles have been reduced to small clumps covered by protective domes. The jungles, which once filled the planet's volcanic rift valleys, produce vine-silk and vine-coffee. The domes are kept safe from the planet's geological activity by apex-mounted antigrav support systems, and have special light-amplification systems to keep the jungles warm. It has been occupied since just before the rise of Emperor Palpatine, but the domes have been in place for only 14 years. The planet has been an independent ally of the Republic for a number of years. Belsavis is located in the Ninth Quadrant, near the Senex Sector.

 

Karfeddion

Planetary system that includes Barhu, Churba and New Cov.

 

Anoat System   
where the Imperial fleet chases the Millennium Falcon after it escapes from the Hoth asteroid field, it contains the planets Anoat, Gentes, and Deyer. During the time of the New Republic, the system is relatively deserted. It is located near the Hoth System. Note that Rebellion places the Anoat System in the Churba Sector, while the Dark Side Sourcebook places it in the Anoat Sector.

 

Barhu
First planet in the Churba system, it is a ball of molten rock.

 

Churba
The fourth and primary planet in the Churba system, Churba was known for its leading-edge technology and its cosmopolitan atmosphere. It was located in the Mid Rim Territories.

 

Hurcha
Eighth planet in the Churba system, it is too cold to support life.

 

New Cov
The third planet in the Churba sector, New Cov was once the sight of a Bothan battle with a Victory-class Star Destroyer, the only true instance of a Bothan-only battle with the Empire. New Cov has no indigenous sentient species, but it is a jungle world full of plant life and valuable natural resources. The planet's cities are walled and domed. The planet's primary industry revolves around the jungle's exotic flora, which produce various biomolecules with commerical value. However, many of the plants have adapted to this threat and have become dangerous to the harvesters. The planet has a normal rotation of about 27 hours, and it's year lasts 301 local days.

 

Varonat
This planet, located in the Ison Corridor, is the homeworld of the Morodin race. Varonat is a jungle world that was colonized by a group from the planet Salliche about 250 years before the Galactic Civil War. They established a farming economy, which proved to be profitable. However, the Morodin proved to be a menace to the community's farms because of their size and the slime they left behind, which caused the soil to become infertile. Many of the farming industry's profits went into security measures. Gamgalon later set up a hunting industry on Varonat. The average day on Varonat lasts 27 standard hours, and its year encompasses 325 local days.

 

Bespin
This cloud-covered gas giant was the third planet in the Bespin system. Because of the mining outpost of Cloud City, Bespin was known for the naturally spin-sealed tibanna gas found in its atmosphere. One of the major variations of the game of sabacc was named for the planet, another for Cloud City. It was located just off the Corellian Trade Route, along the pathway of the Ison Corridor. It has a number of natural satellites, and is located near the Anoat System. The gas giant has a quick rotation, taking only twelve standard hours to complete one revolution. However, its orbital revolution required 14 standard years to complete. Bespin's diameter measures some 118,000 kilometers. Much of the cloud cover over Bespin is well over 1,000 kilometers thick, and surrounds an outer core of seething molten rethin and compressed gas some 52,000 kilometers deep. This outer core exceeds 6,000 degrees, and covers a ball of solid metal 12,000 kilometers across. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars series, issue 57, depicts the surface of Bespin as a swampy marsh filled with liquified gases.

 

Hoth
This snow planet is the sixth planet in the Hoth system, located in the Ison Corridor. It orbits a distant, blue-white star, and has three natural satellites. Just outside the orbit of Hoth is a huge asteroid belt, which is believed to be the result of the collision of two planets eons ago. Its remote location made it the perfect site for an Alliance base three years after the Battle of Yavin. It orbits its star inside a treacherous belt of asteroids, making any approach to the planet very hazardous. Many smaller asteroids get pulled in by Hoth's gravity, and rain down on the planet as meteors. The planet's normal daytime temperature was some thirty-degrees below zero, and its high-velocity wind and snow storms make it extremely inhospitable. Hoth has a fair amount of seismic activity, which is constantly changing the various ice formations and creating vast, natural ice caves and tunnels. It is for these reasons that Alliance Major Kem Monnon chose it for Echo Base. Its harsh, frozen climate has given rise to only two major lifeforms, the Wampa ice creature and the tauntaun. Small rodents, wirelike ice worms, and hardy lichens complete a minimal foodchain. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars issue 78, indicates that Hoth had more than one sun at the center of its system.

 

Ison System
This planetary system is located at the opposite end of the Ison Corridor from the Bespin System.

Javin Sector

 

Javin Sector
Located near the Hoth System, the Empire established outpost station D-34 there. Following the Battle of Hoth, the Imperial Fleet tried to drive the fleeing Alliance ships through the Javin Sector and past D-34, from which the Empire could destroy the ships.

Bruanii Sector
A section of the galaxy in which the Alliance Light Calamari Cruiser Lulsla was destroyed following the Battle of Hoth. It is located near the Tungra and Javin Sectors.

Moddell Sector

 

Endor
This silvery gas giant planet, located in the Moddell Sector near the area of Wild Space, was orbited by nine moons, including the Forest Moon of Endor. It was not located near any hyperspace node, and required a fairly complex series of jumps in order to get there. It was for this reason, coupled with the apparent lack of "intelligent life", that Emperor Palpatine chose to construct the second Death Star in orbit around the Forest Moon.

 

Forest Moon of Endor
The life-supporting satellite of the gas giant Endor, found in the Moddell Sector, this second moon has a widely-varied, temperate climate. (No planet is seen in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi novelization talks of the planet being destroyed eons ago. However, the Ewoks films definitely show a clouded world around which the moon orbits, and The Truce at Bakura mentions a dead planet. The Adventures of Teebo describes Endor as a planet. The Bounty Hunters: Aurra Sing says that the Forest Moon is sometimes simply referred to as Endor.) Due to the out-of-the-way location of the planet Endor, its Forest Moon has become something of a desert island in space. Its breathable atmosphere allows nearly any race to land there, in the event their ship gets in trouble while off the normal hyperspace routes. As its name indicated, forests abound on the moon, broken here and there by rocky wastes and small deserts. The moon's low gravity allows the trees to grow to incredible heights. It is the home of many unique species, including the Ewoks and the Marauders. The Empire discovered the out-of-the-way moon, and used it as a construction sight for the second Death Star. The Empire placed a shield generator on the moon to help guard the battle station during its construction; thus, Endor became known as the Sanctuary Moon. Other sources have described a vast wealth of ores on the moon, which were mined by the Empire. These mining operations were significantly reduced when the New Republic was formed. The moon has a 18-hour day, and rotates around the sun in about 402 standard days.

 

Monsua Nebula
Located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy, this gaseous cloud was infamously known for the amount of pirate activity which occurred in its vicinity, during the last decades of the Old Republic.

Ssi Ruuk Star Cluster

 

Lwhekk
This hot, jungle-covered planet was the home world of the Ssi-ruuk and P'w'eck races, and was the center of the Ssi-ruuvi Imperium. The jungles of Lwhekk were broken by spired cities which appeared to be quite fragile against the jungle. The average day on Lwhekk lasted 32 standard hours, and its years encompassed 344 local days. The planet Lwhekk was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong during the height of their invasion of the galaxy, as part of a plan to establish a foothold along the borders of the Unknown Regions. The Yuuzhan Vong then hatched an elaborate plan to capture Bakura as well, playing on the Bakurans' fear of the Ssi-ruuk by sending a P'w'eck emissary to negotiate an alliance.

Relgim Sector

 

Relgim Sector
This area of the galaxy was under Imperial control during the Galactic Civil War. Denn Wessex was the Governor of the sector, and he schemed with his wife, Lira, to lure her father, Walex Blissex, to Relgim Sector in order to coerce him into helping the Imperials.

 

Aris
Located in the Albarrio System, this jungle world was the sector capital of Relgim Sector. It was on the intinerary of the Kuari Princess when Imperial Moffs Torpin and Vanko began plotting their deception of Emperor Palpatine. Members of the Alliance were also on the planet, trying to discover what the Moffs were up to while escaping from stormtroopers. The Moffs and the Alliance agents all boarded the Kuari Princess on Aris. Aris is the capital world of the Albarrio Sector. It has no native sapient species, although the wok-woks that roam the jungles have begun showing rudimentary intelligence. The jungles of Aris cover the planet in tropical rainforest, with trees growing 250 meters tall in the warmest parts. The inhabitants of the planet live in tree-dwellings formed from wide platforms and connected by simple bridges and walkways.

 

Endoraan   
This planet was often on the itinerary of the Kuari Princess. It served as one of the endpoints of the Relgim Run, opposite Mantooine.

 

Maelstrom
This unusual area of space, located near the Relgim Sector, is dominated by a huge, nebula-like cloud of charged space dust and raw energy. This combination of attributes scrambles most sensor systems, hinders communications, and confuses hyperdrives and navigational computers. Thus, most shpis must revert from hyperspace to realspace in order to traverse the Maelstrom. This has led to a rise in piracy near the Maelstrom, since the ships come out of hyperspace with very little warning of what lies near the cloud.

 

Ord Mantell
Located in the Bright Jewel System, Ord Mantell was known for its lenient banking laws and their flexibility. It was settled some 12,000 before the Battle of Endor by Corellian colonists as an advanced military outpost for the Old Republic. Over time, more wealthy planets and better hyperspace routes diminished Ord Mantell's strategic importance, but became something of a free port for all manner of freighters and cargo ships. Despite the planet's dropping stature, it remained known as the Heart of the Bright Jewel, orbiting the blue star at the center of the Bright Jewel System. The planet was famous for its thick, outer cometary cloud, which has been the site of the Blockade Runners Derby for nearly 100 years. Two large moons and thirteen other satellites orbited the planet, and the cloudcover was tinged with pink when viewed from the planet's surface. These natural wonders made Ord Mantell something of a tourist attraction, despite its seedier side. It is also one of Thrawn's feint attacks just prior to his attack on Coruscant. It has two moons, and has a temperate environment. It claimed to be free of Imperial interest, but Han Solo discovered an Imperial fleet on maneuvers when he arrived there. It was at a starship scrapyard on Ord Mantell that Dash Rendar, working to locate information on Han Solo's whereabouts for Lando Calrissian after the debacle at Cloud City, ran into IG-88 and other bounty hunters. The bounty hunters were trying to intercept Boba Fett, who was transporting Han Solo's frozen body to Jabba the Hutt. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ord Mantell was approached by the New Republic to help alleviate the overwhelming rush of refugees fleeing the battlezones. Like many refugee worlds early in the war, it was eventually overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Anobis
this planet is located near Ord Mantell. There were two main groups of native humans: those that lived and worked in the mountain mines, and those that lived and worked in the lowland plains. The miners depended heavily on trade in order to survive, and valued their relationship with the Empire. The farmers, however, were self-sufficient, and resented the controls imposed by Imperial law. At the height of the Galactic Civil War, the farmers wanted to join the Alliance, but the miners feared the loss of their trade. An intense civil war broke out, and lasted for nearly 25 years before Han Solo met with the leaders of both groups. Han was acting as the Grand Marshall of the 93rd Blockade Runners Derby on Ord Mantell.

Atrivis Sector

 

Generis
The primary planet in the Generis system, Generis was known as the site of the signing of the Treaty of Generis which bound the Atrivis Resistance Group to the Alliance. It later server as an Outer Rim communications center for the New Republic, which was destroyed just prior to the Battle of Bilbringi. It was located in the Atrivis Sector. Much of the planet was dominated by dense jungles, and several ruins found within them have revealed the existence of an extinct alien culture. The Republic decided to rebuild the communications center on Generis,
linking it to the outpost on Esfandia to form a redundant link to the Unknown Regions. The Yuuzhan Vong, during their invasion of the galaxy, destroyed much of the planet's surface, eliminating one of the Republic's major communications hubs. This action left Esfandia as the only remaining communications center servicing the Unknown Regions.

 

Mantooine
A colony planet located in the Atrivis Sector, in the Outer Rim Territories, Mantooine served as one of the two endpoints of the Relgim Run, opposite Endoraan. It is the primary planet in the Mantooine System, which shares the Atrivis Sector with the Fest System. The planet was the site of an Imperial massacre, in which the planet's inhabitants were murdered when they opposed the Empire. The crushing defeat of the planet's populace hardened the resolve of early resistance leaders like Mon Mothma, and helped solidify the need for an Alliance to Restore the Republic.

Braxant Sector

 

Bastion
This planet, the capital world of the Sartinayian System and Braxant Sector, was the political heart of the Empire in the dark times following the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Its true name is a secret kept well-hidden by the Empire. It was controlled by Moff Disra, who retained control during the rise in power of the New Republic. It was on Bastion that the surviving Moffs met with Admiral Pellaeon to discuss a possible peace treaty with the Republic. After the Imperial Remnant was formed and allowed to exist outside the Republic, the capital of the Empire was centered on Bastion for many years. During the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the planet and the Empire remained untouched for many years. Once the Yuuzhan Vong were soundly defeated at the Battle of Ebaq, they began to turn their attention to the systems they had passed. Among them was the area of space controlled by the Imperial Remnant. Bastion was attacked first, and the Empire was completely unable to defend itself. Bastion fell almost immediately, as the Yuuzhan Vong fleet decimated the Imperial warships and destroyed the planet's surface.

 

Borosk
This planet was part of the holdings of the Imperial Remnant, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was a small planet, but was strategic in that it was on the border of the Remnant, and was therefore heavily fortified to repel any attack on the Empire. The asteroid belt that surrounded the planet provided a wealth of natural resources, and several mining operations were established on the larger planetoids. When the New Republic discovered the build-up at Borosk, it fortified its own nearby systems, in case the Empire used Borosk as the launchpoint for an invasion. This led to further arming of Borosk's defenses, making it better protected than even the Imperial capital of Bastion. In the wake of the Battle of Bastion, it was decided that the surviving Imperial forces should fall back to Borosk - rather than Yaga Minor - so that the Remnant could regroup and better launch a retaliatory strike against the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Yaga Minor
The planet from which the Outbound Flight Project was launched during the Old Republic, Yaga Minor was the sight of an Imperial Ubiqtorate base and shipyard following the Battle of Endor. According to Rebellion, Yaga Minor is located in Sesswenna Sector. The Ubiqtorate base was housed in an orbital space station which had a unique design. Extending outward from the main station were a pair of corridor tubes that connected to outrider computer stations. This design, according to Imperial documents, allowed civilians to have access to information stored at the base, while keeping them out of the military section of the station. Grand Moff Tarkin maintained an extensive database at Yaga Minor, and wanted to ensure that his private files were never found. The Imperial presence on Yaga Minor remained strong until the New Republic stormed the Ubiqtorate base in hopes of finding a copy of the Camaas Document. After the battle, in which the Republic's forces were thwarted until Talon Karrde showed up with a fleet of his own, the planet was turned over to the Imperial Remnant. The planet was then placed under the control of Moff Kurlen Flennic, who protected it jealously during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. After the lossed of Bastion and Muunilinst, Moff Flennic feared for his holdings.

Ottega Sector

(Lesser Plooriod Cluster)

 

Ottega Sector
This area of the galaxy, located in the Lesser Plooroid Cluster, contains the Quelii, Ottega (Ithorian), and Dathomir planetary systems. It is located near the Outer Rim territories. At the time Prince Isolder is trying to win Leia's hand in marriage, it is almost completely controlled by the Imperial warlord Zsinj. The latest astrogation charts show that the Ottega Sector has 75 planets and 622 natural satellite moons.

 

Ithor
Homeworld of the Ithorians and fourth world in the Ottega System (sometimes called the Ithorian System), it was a world blockaded by the Empire during Palpatine's reign. When the Ithorians gave the Empire certain agricultural and cloning information, the Empire left them alone. Now, it is a tourist destination. The natives prefer to leave their environment as natural as possible, and have constructed huge, floating cities. It is located in the Ottega Sector in the Lesser Plooriod Cluster, in the Calaron Sector, and has many natural satellites. In what became known as the Battle of Ithor, all life on the planet was destroyed by a bacteria-filled bioweapon constructed by the Yuuzhan Vong. After Shedao Shai was killed on the planet's surface, Deign Lian unleashed the bacteria, which consumed all plant and animal life on Ithor's surface. The attack was meant to destroy the bafforr trees specifically, but the Yuuzhan Vong didn't care about any collateral damage. Adding insult to injury, the destruction of the Legacy of Torment by New Republic warships left the Yuuzhan Vong grand cruiser without drive systems. It crashed into the surface of Ithor, igniting the bacteria-filled slime and creating a series of planet-sweeping fires. Ithor burned like a star for several days before dying out, hanging in space like a dead cinder. Because of his part in Shedao Shai's death, Corran Horn was quickly targeted by the news agencies as "the man who destroyed Ithor."

 

Lesser Plooriod Cluster
A section of the galaxy in which Han Solo and Chewbacca had once run a military scrip exchange scam. It was one of many ill-fated jobs they took in between the time when they exposed the Corporate Sector Authority's slavery ring on Ammuud and when they were hired by Grigmin. It consists of twelve star systems located far from Imperial activity, including the Ottega System.

 

Ottega System
Galactic star system which contains Ithor as its fourth planet. It is therefore sometimes called the Ithorian System. Mako Spince was attacked by NaQuoit Bandits while making a run there.

 

Dathomir
A planet where the outcasts from the Old Republic were sent to die, it is the home of the Rancor, and home to a group of Force-sensitive witches who use spells to control The Force. It is located in the Quelii system, where Zsinj has established a prison colony and a new shipyard. The planet's gravity is somewhat lighter than standard. It is full of the Dark Side of The Force, moreso than Dagobah. Han 'won' the planet from Omogg in a sabacc game; its value is somewhere around three billion credits. It has 3 continents in a vast ocean. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Dathomir fell to the alien invaders shortly before the Battle of Ithor.

 

Quelii System
A section of the galaxy ruled by the Warlord Zsinj following the death of Emperor Palpatine at Endor, it includes Dathomir.

Lahara Sector

 

Lahara Sector
This area of the galaxy's Outer Rim, consisting of 245 inhabited worlds, seceded from the Old Republic shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. Lahara Sector was known for its agricultural output.

 

Agamar
This planet, located in the Lahara Sector of the Outer Rim Territories, was the home of Keyan Farlander. It was the site of an Imperial invasion during the early years of Palpatine's reign as Emperor. Mon Mothma visited there following the Ghorman Massacre, in an effort to help the Agamarians understand Palpatine's evil. Later, it was the site of a hidden Alliance base, early in the Galactic Civil War. The natives of the planet are known to be rough-hewn farmers known for their stubbornness. During the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Agamar served as a stopping point for refugees fleeing the Outer Rim worlds under attack. This support was given after Leia Organa Solo and Danni Quee pleaded with the planetary leaders for support. As the Yuuzhan Vong stepped up their invasion, Agamar remained a pathway to freedom for those Outer Rim worlds which were attacked. However, when the Yuuzhan Vong learned of the effects of bafforr tree pollen on their vonduun crab armor, they overran Agamar in an effort to extend their control to Ithor.

 

Cowl Crucible
This nebulous area of space was located along the edge of the Lahara Sector, where it bordered with Oricho Sector. The gaseous region was dense with radiation, making any travel through the Cowl Crucible risky and dangerous.

 

Garqi
This unimportant Outer Rim world was under the control of the Empire for many years after the Battle of Endor. It was an agricultural world that longed for its freedom. Because of the natural elements found in the planet's crust, the native plant life took on a purple coloration, giving the planet a violet appearance from space. Corran Horn traveled to Garqi to escape Imperial entanglements after he left the Corellian Security Force, and was known to the students of Garqi Ag University through his droid, Whistler, who went by the handle of Xeno. He worked undercover as an assistant the Imperial prefect Mosh Barris, and helped a number of political prisoners escape from the planet. Among the prisoners was Dynba Tesc and the the Duros trader, Lai Nootka. After the Yuuzhan Vong took control of Destrillion and Dubrillion, they started working their way toward the Core. Along their initial route was Garqi, and the planet was unprepared to put up any resistance. The Vong began reforming the planet as a breeding ground for Chazrach warriors.

Merel Sector

 

Merel Sector
This area of the galaxy is contained in the Outer Rim Territories.

 

Ragnar VIII
This remote, defendable planet was the primary world in the Ragnar system, located in Merel Sector.

 

Sedri
A planet which is home to the communal organism known as the Golden Sun, Sedri is completely covered by shallow oceans. It is also home to the Sedrian race, who have built wonderful underwater cities. The Empire researched gravity well projectors on this world, after an Imperial scout ship lost its hyperdrive inhibitor in the vicinity of the planet. The ship's systems were merely shorted out by the presence of the Golden Sun, and the scout limped home and recorded the existence of the planet. Shortly afterward, the Alliance managed to steal the plans and work on them with the Sedrians. The Golden Sun's glow filled the oceans with a soft glow, and the planet had a golden glow when viewed from space. The combination of the glow and the gravity anomalies caused by the Golden Sun force many shipboard navigation computers to register Sedri as a small star, forcing ships out of hyperspace in its vicinity.

 

Dantooine
This planet has a long history with the Republics and the Alliance. The average day on Dantooine lasts 25 standard hours, and its year encompasses 378 local days. In ancient times, it was the site of a Jedi training center under the command of Jedi Master Vodo Siosk-Baas. One of its most prominent students was the Dark Jedi, Exar Kun. During the period of the Emperor's New Order, it was the site of Rebel base, but it was abandoned before the Empire could determine the base's location. It has two moons and a dry savannah environment. Tash Arranda and her brother, Zak, discovered the ancient Jedi ruins there, with the help of the Dantari Maga. Maga refused to enter the ruins, for the garoo of the Dantari tell legends which said those who entered the ruins never came out. Tash discovered that the Empire was using the ruins - and the legends surrounding them - to create a new batch of clones, using a cloning laboratory which was established by the ancient Jedi Knights. In the year following the resurrection of Emperor Palpatine, Dantooine was the planet to which the Eol Sha colonists were relocated, but it was devastated in a stellar attack from Admiral Daala. The planet remained untouched for many years, until the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. Like many other pastoral worlds, Dantooine was quickly captured and reformed for the use of the alien invaders.

Dalonbian Sector

 

Belkadan
This planet, located in the Outer Rim's Dalonbian sector, was the site of the ExGal-4 outpost shortly before the start of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. This was the first planet on the Yuuzhan Vong Vector Prime, and was destroyed in order to draw attention away from the Yuuzhan Vong base on Helska. The planet was, at one time, dominated by dalloralla tree jungles, and was a beautiful wilderness at the edge of the galaxy. Yomin Carr unleashed a colony of dweebits on the planet, which quickly multiplied and affected the plantlife on the planet, rendered the planet's atmosphere a stormy, toxic soup which killed all life. However, just two months after the initial invasion, Belkadan seemed to return to a normal life. Plants and animals were discovered by New Republic scouts, although Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo discovered that the lifeforms were actually Yuuzhan Vong biological constructs tended by weakened slaves. The native plantlife had been overtaken by dense, green vines that provided nutrients and energy to the growing yorik coral.

 

Dubrillion
This planet was a twin to the world of Destrillion. Both were located near the asteroid system known as Lando's Folly. A blue-and-green world from space, Dubrillion is a lush planet that is the exact opposite of Destrillion. Lando Calrissian, while the owner of Lando's Folly, used Dubrillion to house living facilities and luxury suites. Unfortunately for Lando, the Yuuzhan Vong moved into the asteroid field and set up a sort of base camp. They picked off several ships traveling to and from Dubrillion, but in general allowed the natives of the planet to flee for the Inner Rim. However, as soon as the New Republic began to evacuate the planet, the Vong attacked the remaining natives, decimating the fleeing refugees before the rest escaped. Eventually, the Yuuzhan Vong, under the command of Shedao Shai, established a new base of operations on Dubrillion.

 

Destrillion
This planet was a twin to the world of Dubrillion. Both were located near the asteroid system known as Lando's Folly. Brown and dirty from space, Destrillion was an inhospitable world. Lando Calrissian, during his tenure as owner of Lando's Folly, set up great processing plants on Destrillion, where ores from the asteroid field could be turned into usable materials. Like its twin, Destrillion was eventually captured by the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

Lando's Folly
This asteroid system, located near the planets Destrillion and Dubrillion, was purchased by Lando Calrissian and used to mining as well as intense forms of starship racing. The race course was actually a way for Lando to develop a way to get to Kerane's Folly, the legendary platinum asteroid hidden in Hoth's asteroid belt. Lando hoped to develop ways to find the asteroid, mine it, and protect his claim from other hunters by monitoring the races and the reactions of the pilots to the asteroids. Lando also developed a method of using remote-controlled repulsors to protect the ships from bumping into the asteroids. Always looking for ways to save money, Lando obtained several decommissioned TIE Advanced x1 starfighters and TIE Bombers for use in flying through the asteroids. Lando's technicians developed a system known as collision shields, a combination of repulsor fields, shields, and defensive arrays to protect the small ships, all of which were operated from a remote station like Belt-Runner I. The idea of running the field was to stay operative as long as possible, thereby providing Lando with a way to remain within the Hoth asteroid belt long enough to find and mine Kerane's Folly. Kyp Durron held the record for duration until Jaina Solo more than doubled it on her first run.

 

Helska
This planet, the fourth of seven in the Helska System, was the location of the first Yuuzhan Vong base. Much of the planet is covered with ice, and the atmosphere is choked with vaporous fog. Yomin Carr had scouted the planet before he joined the group on ExGal-4, and had left behind villips to help monitor the creation of the base. It was a small world, no more than a few thousand kilometers in diameter. The fifth planet, just outside Helska's orbit, was an uninhabitable gas giant. When the New Republic finally discovered how to destroy the Praetorite Vong's yammosk, which was hidden inside the planet, they forced the world to warm and then re-solidify via the Mezzicanley Wave effect. Helska's matter was unable to handle the strain of the effect, and shattered into a billion pieces of ice and rock.

 

Sernpidal
This planet, the third in the Julevian System, was the most populated planet in its Outer Rim sector. This made it the first major strike along the Yuuzhan Vong's Vector Prime. It had two moons: a huge moon, nearly one-fifth the size of Sernipdal itself; and Dobido, which only measured twenty kilometers in diameter. The Yuuzhan Vong placed a dovin basal in the center of Sernpidal City and used it to draw Dobido into an ever-closer orbit. Eventually, Dobido crashed into Sernpidal, destroying both worlds. The impact stripped away huge portions of Sernpidal's surface, completely burned away its atmosphere, and created a belt of large planetoids in its orbit. However, this did not diminish the usefulness of the planet to the Yuuzhan Vong. They brought in a swarm of snail-like creatures to refine the larger chunks into usable materials, and set about constructing a huge warship from the rubble. The Yuuzhan Vong referred to this construction as a shipwomb.

Parmic Sector

 

Laramus
Primary planet in the Laramus System of Parmic Sector, Laramus was the site of an Alliance ambush on an Imperial convoy. The Alliance cruiser Visseon II came out of hyperspace with is weapons firing, taking the convoy by surprise. The Imperials quickly recognized that there was only a single ship attacking them, and they split the convoy into multiple groups. While the Visseon II was busy with one small group, the others attacked. At this point, Alliance reinforcements arrived, decimating the Imperial ships and taking control of 14 fully-loaded transports. The Alliance suffered no losses during the skirmish.

 

Parmic System

Calamari Sector

 

Calamari
An ocean-covered world with little solid land mass, Calamari is home to two amphibious races: the Mon Calamari and the Quarren. It is a tectonically stable world, without mountains. The planet is covered with deep oceans, with many islands and coral atolls. Much of the exposed land is marshy, and incapable of supporting any kind of civilization. Thus, the two native species turned to building floating cities from the ores mined from the ocean floor. Some parts of the cities are exposed above the ocean's surface, but the majority of the space in Calamari cities is underwater. It is famous for its shipyards. It has a single moon. Its day lasts about 21 standard hours, and its year spans 398 local days. In the wake of the Battle of Coruscant, and the death of Borsk Fey'lya, the New Republic's provisional government - led by the newly-elected Chief of State Cal Omas - was established on Calamari.

Calaron Sector

 

Akrit'tar
A maximum security Imperial prison planet located in the Calaron Sector.

 

F'tral
An ocean world orbitting F'la Ren, F'tral is home to the Iyra species. The volcanic islands that have formed in these clear, fresh oceans have become the homes of specialized plants. These plants have adapted to become competent fishing plants, voracious cannibal plants, and some have evolved that can seduce other lifeforms near enough for capture. It is located in the Calaron Sector. Many of the planet's oceans are deep, with depths up to eleven kilometers. In other areas, the oceans are shallow tidal pools.

 

Fwillsving
A planet near Honoghr and Kessel, in the Calaron Sector.

 

Jerijador
A planet, located in the Calaron Sector, known for its cheap shoe kits.

 

Kubindi
This planet is the homeworld of the Kubaz, and is the fifth planet orbiting the sun Ku'Bakai. Kubindi orbits very close to Ku'Bakai, and the frequent solar flares raze the planet's surface, destroying much of the plant and animal life. The primary survivors of the flares were insects. There are millions of species on the planet today. Other creatures which managed to survive had to evolve into insect-eaters, like the Kubaz. They now inhabit the 6th, 8th, and 11th worlds in the Ku'Bakai system, with only the poor or disgraced Kubaz still clinging to existence on Kubindi. Kubindi is located in the Calaron Sector. The day on Kubindi lasts 48 standard hours, and it year encompasses 420 local days. The planet was overtaken by the Yuuzhan Vong some twenty-six years after the Battle of Endor, following in the wake of Falleen and Rodia. Kyp Durron and his group of vigilantes, Kyp's Dozen, held off the aliens long enough for every spaceworthy ship to flee the planet. It was believed that the Kubaz were attractive targets to the Yuuzhan Vong because of their history of genetic manuipulation of insects. Note that this planet is named Kubindin in Secrets of Tatooine.

 

Morvogodine
A planet, located in the Calaron Sector, that was occupied by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Norval II
The primary planet in the Norvall system, located in the Calaron Sector, Norval II supplies some of the best New Republic pilots.

Mortex Sector

 

Mortex Sector
The Alliance gained a foothold in this area of the galaxy shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

 

Dakot 7
This planet was known as a center of academia in Mortex Sector.

 

Fangol
This small, frozen world is located in Mortex Sector, and was the site of a hidden Alliance base. The base housed the sector's headquarters deep in the icy crust of the planet. The planet was continually shrouded in a white, icy mist that was formed from the ejecta of hundreds of icy volcanoes. The mists reflected all light from space, making the planet appear to be a solid ball of white. The mists also disrupted communications, so the Alliance established a listening post on the planet's only moon. The mists themselves are poisonous to breathe, being laden with sulfur and other chemicals from the volcanoes. The Alliance brought the captured Black Ice to Fangol, unaware that the Empire had placed a homing beacon on the ship. The Alliance was forced to evacuate the base, but Lawra Mers proposed using the Black Ice to ram the torpedo sphere sent to wipe out the base. The plan succeeded, giving the Alliance an oppportunity to safely evacuate the base.

 

Kestel System
This Empire used this location as a staging area for assault fleets attacking targets in Mortex Sector during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Rodia
The tropical home world of the Rodian race, Rodia was the second planet in the Tyrius System. Rodia was orbited by four natural moons. It was once a lush paradise teaming with life, but the hunters of the Rodians wiped out much of the planet's native life in search of food and dominance. Since then, it has become highly industrialized. Because of this industrialization, Rodia was subjugated by the Yuuzhan Vong, shortly after the alien invaders took Druckenwell and Falleen.

 

Taoska
This frozen ball of ice and rock was the fifth planet in the Tyrius system.

 

Toosma
This orange-yellow gas giant was the fourth planet in the Tyrius System. It was orbited by eighteen moons.

 

Tyrius
This yellow star was the primary body in the Tyrius System, which contained the planet Rodia and four other worlds.

Portmoak Sector

 

Portmoak Sector
An area of the galaxy located in the Outer Rim Territories.

 

Hyrol Preen Beta
This planet, located in Portmoak Sector, was "purified" by the Empire with the use of a battalion of ZQ infantry droids and Storm Commandos. It was rumored that the Empire destroyed Hyrol Preen Beta because of suspected Alliance activity. When they couldn't capture the rebels outright, the Imperials wiped out the settlements on the planet in order to prevent the Alliance from returning.

 

Reuss VIII
This planet, the primary world in the Reuss System, is located in the Portmoak Sector of the Outer Rim. It was once a lush, green world filled with beautiful vistas and a mild climate. It was a major food producer for the Outer Rim Territories. However, the industrial revolution that swept the planet left it a toxic, polluted wasteland under the control of Torel Vorne. Vorne has managed to turn Reuss VIII into Portmoak Sector's industrial juggernaut, at the expense of its environment. Reuss VIII's day lasts 20 standard hours, and its year lasts 210 local days.

Trax Sector

 

Trax Sector
An area of the galaxy located in the Outer Rim, and containing the Bissillirus System.

 

Algunnis
This binary star, located in Trax Sector, is something of an anomaly. Scientists believed that the double star wandered through its area of the galaxy without any planets, but picked up orbital debris as it moved. At the time of the Battle of Yavin, Algunnis is surrounded by a huge asteroid belt, made up of planets and other solar bodies Algunnis had captured and crushed with its intense gravity field.

 

Altrax
This frozen planet is the eighth planet in the Atrig System. It has a single moon.

 

Deysum III
This planet, located in the Trax Sector, served as the Imperial sector capital shortly after the Battle of Yavin. A huge naval installation was erected on the planet. At the time of the Battle of Yavin, Deysum III had been abused by corporations and urban sprawl, and much of the planet was covered with swamps of deadly chemicals and toxic waste. The inhabitants of the planet were forced to erect huge domes to cover their cities and keep out the toxic gases the built up over the centuries of misuse.

 

Draenell's Point
This cool, agricultural world was located in the Bissillirus System, and was a convenient stopover point for traders and travelers in Trax Sector. The planet was named for Arnoll Draenell, the leader of the Old Republic scouting expedition which stumbled upon the system. During the Galactic Civil War, Draenell's Point supplied a good deal of agricultural foodstuffs to the Alliance.

 

Entrus
This temperate, ocean-covered world was known as the recreation capital of Trax Sector. Entrus' economy is primarily based on incomes from gambling, supplemented by catering to the whims and desires of the sector's wealthiest inhabitants. The city areas are located on small islands, and are densely populated. Weather on the planet was remarkably consistent and very pleasant, due in part to the system's powerful sun. During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance established its Trax Sector command center on Entrus, under the noses of the Imperial officers who vacationed on the planet.

 

Essowyn
This planet is found in the Saurton System, located in the Trax Sector. It is constantly being bombarded by debris from the system's twin asteroid belts. It is the homeworld of the Saurton race, which had been divided into two warring factions - the Quenno and the Des'mar - for many decades. The average day on Essowyn lasts 39 standard hours, while its year lasts 401 local days. Much of the planet was covered with water, although there were four major continents and a number of large islands. Most of the cities built by the Saurton were located underground, to protect them from asteroid strikes.

 

Fehern
This planet is the homeworld of the Eddel race. During the height of the Old Republic, Eddel starships regularly plied the expanses of Trax Sector. However, after the rise of Emperor Palpatine, the Eddel were subjugated and left with minimal levels of technology.

 

Jhensrus
This jungle world was located in Trax Sector, and was known throughout the sector as a frontier world. The planet's inhabitants battled on a regular basis to keep the creatures of the planet at bay, resulting in a population of fighters and survivors.

 

Lexrol
Located in Trax Sector, this planet was the primary world of the most densely-populated system of the sector. The system's government was extremely loyal to the Empire during the height of the New Order, due mainly to the fact that Imperialization of the world resulted in a much more stable government and improved economy. The Empire established a supply depot in the system during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Longwind
This planet was originally settled by criminals who had been released after serving their sentences in the prisons of the Old Republic, some 75 years before the Battle of Yavin. The planet emerged as the textile center of Trax Sector, and a thriving agricultural system also contributed to its economy. The Alliance established its alternate command base on Longwind during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Qetix IV
This barren moon was located in the Dresscol System of Trax Sector. During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance established a starfighter repair base on the moon, to support the shipyards in the nearby Ventil System.

 

Traxal 1
This planet, a searing ball of rock like its twin, Traxal 2, was the innermost world of the Nubus System.

 

Traxal 2
This planet, a searing ball of rock like its twin, Traxal 1, was the second world of the Nubus System.

 

Unillian
This is the moon of the planet Draenell's Point, located in the Bissillirus System of Trax Sector.

 

Uogo'cor
This planet, located in the Trax Sector, is the home of a number of outlaw tech stations. It was positioned just off the Trax Tube, and was populated mainly by pirates during its early history. It was the homeworld of the Uogo race, which was enslaved by the many pirate gangs that controlled the system. With the emergence of the Empire and its New Order, the pirates and much of the Uogo population were wiped out. In the native language of the Uogo, the planet is called "the home of the suffering ones."

 

Ventil System
This star system was located in Trax Sector, near the star Dresscol. The Alliance established a shipyard in the system, where capital ships could be staged and repaired for missions in the sector.

Deep Core

 

Deep Core
A major stronghold of the Empire for decades, this area of the galaxy contained Byss. It was located between the Galactic Core (where the Core Worlds are located) and the very center of the known galaxy. It was the area of the galaxy with the greatest density of stars, and the intense gravitational mass of the Deep Core was thought to be impenetrable until Palpatine discovered a handful of safe hyperspace pathways. At this center of the galaxy was a huge black hole, which made spaceflight - especially through hyperspace - extremely difficult. Many hyperspace lanes through the Deep Core were severely constricted pathways that led to dead-ends. However, these hyperspace routes were jealously-guarded secrets, even after the Empire was defeated at Endor and relegated to the Imperial Remnant. Because the twisting pathways through the Deep Core were difficult to travel, Leia Organa Solo believed that they could be used to trap the Yuuzhan Vong fleet, if only the Imperial Remnant would allow the New Republic to have access to them. She offered Supreme Commander Gilad Pellaeon the Republic's complete intelligence on the Yuuzhan Vong in exchange for the knowledge of the Deep Core's hyperspace routes. Pellaeon gladly agreed, since the Deep Core was part of the New Republic anyway, and the knowledge of the hyperspace routes was essentially useless to the Imperial Remnant.

Kalamith

 

Teyr
A Fallanassi school world, Teyr was the site of a devastating battle during the Clone Wars, in which Separatist forces handily defeated the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic. Many decades later, Teyr became a boom world after the Battle of Endor, and much of its economic growth was a result of increased tourism. However, the natives didn't tolerate off-worlders very well, and required that visitors abide by a series of visitors' guidelines. The local police forces tended to favor natives over off-worlders in any dispute, and they subtly encouraged visitors not to stay on Teyr too long.

Originally just a BSP "cleaning" station, Nejdiv has become a colony for families of the pirates. Loot and newly aquired technology is brought through Nejdiv and "cleaned" for homing signals etc. Further more, Nejdiv serves as stopover for all communications and travel to Ryustlore. Only a select few know Ryustlore's actual coordinates and therefore BSP ships must stop here before flying onto the Headquarters. On top of its fairly extensive spaceport and residential facilites, Nejdiv also sports a brewery that produces beverages for the BSP Cantina. The planet has a sophisticated communications and sensor system. One of the nearby island has the ruins of an old swoop race course. The planet has two moons, Marin and Noolin. Marin is large and covered with alien forests of giant fungi-like growths and Noolin is a barren crater-marked rock.

Lytton

 

Spira

This planet was located in the Lytton Sector of the galaxy. It had very little axial tilt, so its climate is very stable. It was a lush, tropical world with no natural predators. It was first scanned by Old Republic explorers nearly a thousand years before the Battle of Yavin, and the wealthy citizens of the Core have been coming to Spira for a long time. At one point during the height of the New Order, it was estimated that there were 4,527 luxury hotels available on the planet. Its surface is mostly ocean, broken here and there by chains of islands. Weapons are forbidden on the planet. The average day on Spira lasted about 25 standard hours, and its year encompassed 377 local days. An ancient shipwreck was located west of The Point, a remnant from a time before the planet was first settled. No one knew who owned the ship or why it crashed, but over the years the wreck was salvaged for parts and left as an artificial reef.
