During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the early rebel movement—a loose network of rebel cells led
in secret by Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan—established a secret outpost on the northern continent
of the planet Crait. Three years before the Battle of Yavin, one of these rebel groups attacked Calderos
Station, a large Imperial facility used as a deep-space waypoint, to weaken Imperial control and cover
rebel shipment tracks to Crait. Although the rebels presumed that all data about Calderos Station was
erased, Bail's adopted daughter, Princess Leia Organa, managed to find some old space traffic data
which linked Crait and Calderos Station. To discover the identity of the attacker, Leia Organa and her
guard Lieutenant Ress Batten traveled to Crait aboard the Polestar. After the ship landed on the planet
surface, Leia was detained by rebel soldiers as she refused their proposal to leave Crait immediately.
Upon being taken to the base, Leia found out that it was her father who was in charge of this facility,
and her parents were secretly organizing a rebel movement against the Empire.

The rebel movement eventually turned into a more organized Rebel Alliance, and the Crait outpost
was abandoned some time before the Battle of Scarif, which marked the outbreak of the Galactic Civil

Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, the Rebel Alliance maintained a temporary base of operations on Golrath. They
used the base as a makeshift training facility, but due to the cooling of the magma supply, they abandoned the
hostile region to settle on the more temperate world of Arbra.

Imperial forces learned of the abandoned station's existence and Darth Vader sent Lieutenant Mils Giel there to
supervise a survey team in the hopes of uncovering information concerning the Alliance. During his occupation, he
discovered several holograms projected from the bedrock foundations detailing Rebel training sequences. He
immediately transmitted a communiqué to Darth Vader describing what he had learned.

Meanwhile, Princess Leia Organa likewise learned about their old station's holographic capabilities. Aware that
Golrath Station was now under Imperial control, she personally led a strike team to the planet's surface to destroy
any past evidence of their existence. Giel and Princess Leia faced one another inside the plant's reactor core
chamber. Giel activated the overload circuits hoping that the destruction of the base might also kill Princess Leia.
Both Leia and Giel managed to escape before the reactor core exploded, destroying the station.

Background: To the galaxy at large, it appears to be
just another unassuming, lifeless, barren, rocky
world. In truth, Labyrinth is home to one of the
Empire’s most secure prison facilities.
The planet takes its name from the prison’s
intentionally confusing and maze-like layout. The

Access to the Labyrinth prison must go through the space station in geosynchronous orbit.
Prisoners, staff, or supplies are offloaded at the station and loaded onto transport ships specifically
assigned to the prison in order to eliminate access to ships with falsified access.
The prison itself is underground, with only the landing pad and intake facility above ground. Even
the administrative areas are underground, with the first level a mile below ground. The prison block
levels, rather than being laid out in standard Imperial layout, are intentionally designed in a maze-
like layout that gives the prison its name. No two levels share the same layout. This is intended to
disorient any potential escapees or, even more unlikely, any intruders into the facility.
With Mustafar in relatively close proximity, additional defensive forces can reach Labyrinth in short
order.
Some months after the battle of Yavin, Wraith Task Force – accompanied by a small Rebel fleet
group – performed a daring rescue of one of their own from Labyrinth, even destroying a
Starbreaker-class battle platform in the process.

Space and Imperial-controlled space. As a result, it was mistaken for a Rebel Alliance installation.

In a surprise attack, elements of the Imperial fleet’s Death Squadron destroyed the shadowport on the crater
moon of Syvris. The smuggler enclave was bombarded by Star Destroyer turbolaser batteries, then gutted by AT-
ST walker units and Imperial ground troops.

Days before the attack, shadowport control tracked an escape pod which landed on the moon’s far side. When a
patrol found the craft, it was empty. Some believe the pod carried an Imperial spy who scouted the moon and
somehow reported the shadowbase’s location back to the fleet.

Some survivors suspected the shadowport was betrayed by the Mon Calamari smuggler Basz Maliuy, who
conveniently raised ship from the port hours before the Imperial Star Destroyers arrived. Although Maliyu had
mostly run cargoes for crime syndicates, some believe he was really working for the Empire.

Most spacers at the shadowport had enough time to blast off and evade the Imperial assault. The initial
turbolaser bombardment leveled the base, and only a few TIE fighter picket patrols were stationed to take
parting shots at fleeing smugglers. Unfortunately, Rance, the retired pirate who ran the shadowport, remained

A castle located on the planet of Takodana on the shore of Nymeve Lake was owned by the pirate Maz
Kanata for over 1000 years. It had a main hall and hosted travelers and smugglers, among others. It
had sensor grids and advanced communications gear and was rumored to have been a battleground
for the Jedi and Sith. A group of musicians composed of Sudswater Dillifay Glon, Infrablue Zedbeddy
Coggins, Ubert Quaril, and Taybin Ralorsa played there. All were welcome at Maz Kanata's castle so
long as they followed the rules, which required no violence of any sort. As such, the castle saw visitors
from all walks of life, who could generally co-mingle without fear of attack. Kanata strictly enforced
the rules personally with the aid of the ancient droid "Emmie" and those who violated them were
forbidden from further visits. This also meant that even those who were in grave trouble, such as
having a bounty on their head, could find refuge at the castle. Such individuals, however, would only
be granted one free night of food, water, and shelter, after which they would have to pay a heavy fee
if they wished to remain.
