Distant Outer Rim

Status: Haven for Pirates and Smugglers
Terrain: Seas of Sand and Rock
Key facts: Abandoned by the Czerka Corporation

Tatooine is a desert world in the Outer Rim, and the first of three planets that orbit the suns of a binary star system in the Arkanis sector. The world is known as a haven for smugglers, pirates, and those seeking to conduct questionable research away from prying eyes. Five hundred years ago the Czerka Corporation came to Tatooine in search of hidden resources; failing to discover the reserves they sought, Czerka instead established a now-abandoned weapons development complex on the planet's surface.[1]


For much of its history Tatooine remained of little interest to the galaxy; the planet's brutal climate and sun-baked surface offered few reasons to visit the world. However, the Czerka Corporation felt this desert planet held more to offer than it first appeared. Five hundred years ago Czerka arrived to obtain resources that they, ultimately, were unable to find. The Corporation's interests on Tatooine instead turned to that of weapons development and testing.[1]

Czerka Corporation eventually abandoned its holdings on Tatooine, leaving its research complex to be reclaimed by the desert world. Believing Czerka left more than just their research facilities, however, the Sith Empire has taken in interest in the planet and established a base of operations in Mos Ila. Imperial troops scavenge the abandoned labs not far from the settlement of Anchorhead, a regular pit stop for Republic ships that find themselves in the Outer Rim.[1]
