Touring the Galaxy: Bothan Space


Antakaria System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Antakaria

Antakaria was a remote system that saw little galactic traffic.   

 

Both System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: Both

·        Orbits:

o   Yeltha

o   Taboth

§  two unnamed moons/satellites

o   Fervse’dra (asteroid belt)

o   Bothawui

§  three unnamed moons/satellites

§  Bothawui Star Fortress (destroyed)

o   Golm

§  23 unnamed moons/satellites

o   Ganash

§  14 unnamed moons/satellites

o   Hoppawui

§  8 unnamed moons/satellites

o   Jentawui

All but Bothawui were uninhabited planets. Golm and Ganash were gas giants, the inner two planets – Yeltha and Taboth – were seared, barren worlds, and the outer two planets – Hoppawui and Jentawui – were frozen, barren planets.  

 

Homeworld of the equine Bothan humanoid species, Bothawui was a temperate world adorned with grassy plains, lush forests, mountain ranges, vast oceans, and bustling urban cityscapes. The planet joined the Republic as early as 17,000 BBY and quickly became a major member of the galactic government.

 

Millennia later, in 3,996 BBY, the planet came under temporary Sith control during the Great Sith War. Centuries later, during the Great Galactic War, Sith forces attempted to take Bothawui again, but were unsuccessful; however, the Eternal Empire did manage to temporarily subjugate the world during the Galactic War years later, using a star fortress.

 

By the time of the New Sith Wars, Bothawui was in neutral territory between the Republic and Sith Empire, but the planet remained aligned with the Republic. With the onset of the Clone Wars, Bothawui declared neutrality. During the war, the planet was attacked by Separatist forces wishing to annex the system into their movement, but were deterred by Republic, Jedi and Bothan forces.

 

During the initial decades of the Galactic Civil War, Bothawui enjoyed autonomy, despite being an Imperial world. A nominal Imperial presence was on the planet, allowing the Bothans to provide support for the Rebel Alliance as informants. Later in the war, Bothawui became a founding member of the New Republic.

 

The Yuuzhan Vong War saw Bothawui become a key Galactic Alliance fortress world. The planet was well-defended and barely affected by the war. During the Second Galactic Civil War, Bothawui would secede and be a founding member of the Corellian Confederation; however, rejoined the Galactic Alliance after the war.

 

A century later, the system came under the jurisdiction of Darth Krayt’s “One” Sith Empire. Civil unrest erupted between its denizens and rulers over disagreements about whether the system should align with the Galactic Alliance or Sith Empire, with the ruling class favoring the Sith due to political prestige. 

 

Kant System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Kant

§  two unnamed moons/satellites

A remote world in the system, Kant was briefly occupied by Sith forces in 3,643 BBY during the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and reconstituted “True” Sith Empire.

 

Di’tai’ni System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Di’tai’ni

Homeworld of the Tai’ni species, Di’tai’ni was a minor world in the sector, aligning with the New Republic during the Galactic Civil War.

 

Kothlis System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: Koth’lar

·        Orbits:

o   Sessa

o   Kuk’tar

§  one unnamed moon/satellite

o   Dwi’kar

§  8 unnamed moons/satellites

§  Dwi’kar V

o   Kothlis

§  Kothlis I

§  Kothlis II

§  Kothlis III

§  Kothlis Asteroid Field

o   Dwi’lar

o   Mar’ta I

o   Mar’ta II

All but Kothlis were uninhabitable planets: Sessa & Kuk’tar were volcanic, barren worlds, Mar’ta I & II were frozen, airless rocks, and Dwi’kar & Dwi’lar were gas giants. Though uninhabited, Dwi’kar V did have an orbital station operated by a Bothan ammunitions corporation.

 

Kothlis was a temperate world similarly landscaped like Bothawui, making it an ideal Bothan colony world and major Republic planet. The planet remained a staunch ally to the Republic through its various wars with the Sith, as well as during the Clone Wars.

 

Despite Imperial occupation during the Galactic Civil War, Kothlis supported the Rebel Alliance, and eventually became a major New Republic world. The planet remained with the Galactic Alliance during the Yuuzhan Vong War, and temporarily aligned with the Corellian Confederation during the Second Galactic Civil War, ultimately rejoining the Galactic Alliance.

 

Kothlis’ second moons were inhabitable, though Kothlis II was used as a training ground for the Kothlis Militia during the Galactic Civil War, while Kothlis III was never colonized. It was speculated that the asteroid field may have been a fourth moon destroyed early in the system’s development.

 

Krant System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Krant

§  Aereen

Homeworld of the humanoid Krantian speices, the planet was colonized by the Sith Empire before its collapse in 5,000 BBY. Krant was a world of vast forested wildernesses, oceans, island chains, and remote urban centers. The planet joined the Republic at some point following the Great Hyperspace War.

 

During the Clone Wars, the planet was momentarily occupied by Separatist forces, but declared neutrality following the war. Krant was used as a rendezvous point for Bothan and Rebel spies, momentarily holding an Imperial garrison until the system officially joined the New Republic.

 

Krant’s moon, Aereen, was a mineral-rich world used as a Separatist mining colony until Republic forces liberated the system, destroying the facilities in the process. Following the war, the moon was abandoned.

 

Mandell System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Mandell

A minor planet in the sector, Mandell was primarily landscaped with continents of vast grasslands, colonized by Bothans as an agri-world. At some point prior to the Galactic Civil War, the planet was devastated by drought and the grasslands infested with subterranean serpents.

 

Moonus Mandell System (R-14)

·        Sun/Star: unnamed

·        Orbits:

o   Moonus Mandell

Homeworld of the humanoid Veknoids species, Moonus Mandell was a minor world in the sector, joining the Republic at some point in its history. During the Clone Wars, the planet declared neutrality.

o   Sennatt

A Bothan colony, Sennatt was a major industrial hub in the sector. The planet’s political alignment followed that of nearby Bothawui; however, during the reign of the reconstituted “True” Sith Empire, the planet was under Sith control. Over three millennia later, during the Galactic Civil War, the planet came under Imperial rule.

o   Torolis

Torolis was a remote world that colonized by Bothans early in their spacefaring history.
