Touring the galaxy: Sanbra Sector


Aquilaris System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Aquilaris

An aquatic world littered with urbanized island chains, Aquilaris was a Republic world that built its economy around tourism and podracing. The island cities were connected by transparisteel tunnels, allowing passengers to view the native and imported aquatic life. It is unknown if the fall of the Republic affected Aquilaris’ economy.


Baarstal System (N-17)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Baarstal

A jungle world, Baarstal was an astronomical object with an atmosphere to make it habitable, though it is unclear if Baarstal was ever populated.


Beheboth System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: Beheboth

· Orbits:

o Huip

o Brenu

o Hebeth

o Hebine Ring (asteroid belt)

o Beheboth

§ three unnamed moons/satellites

o Behenui

§ nine unnamed moons/satellites

o Derenath

o Omdrid

Both Huip and Brenu are barren, lifeless planetoids that orbit too close to their star to be habitable. Likewise, Hebeth, Derenath, and Omdrid were barren worlds void of life, Hebeth being a molten rock, while Derenath and Omdrid were icy rocks. Also uninhabitable, Behenui was the only gas giant in the system. At some point, the Sith built an observation facility on a larger asteroid in the Hebine Ring, abandoning it at an unknown time.


Beheboth was an arid world primarily defined by mountain ranges and deserts. Humans and Bothans colonized the world, annexing the system into the Republic, unaware that the non-corporeal Tirrith species were sentient. With the fall of the Republic, the system fell under Imperial jurisdiction, until Luke Skywalker helped free the Tirrith of their oppression, securing their support in the Rebel Alliance and subsequent New Republic.


Belial System (N-17)

· Sun/Star: Belial

· Orbits:

o Serphidi

Home to the humanoid reptilian Serps species, Serphidi was a terrestrial world of mesas, plains, and forests. During the Galactic Civil War, Serphidi’s king allied with the Empire until he was removed by Luke Skywalker and a Rebel-friendly king put in his place. Serphidi, and the Belial system, would eventually join the New Republic.


De’etta System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: De’etta

· Orbits:

o Sanbra

Sanbra was the location of the University of Sanbra, renowned for its xenobiology and sentientology programs. A Republic world, the university was sacked by a Sith Lord in search of an ancient Sith artifact. With the rise of the Empire, Sanbra became an Imperial world until it eventually joined the New Republic in the Galactic Civil War.


Golrath System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Golrath

Golrath was a volcanic world temporarily occupied by the Rebel Alliance following their loss at the Battle of Hoth. Eventually the base was moved to another planet and the base destroyed to prevent the Empire from discovering the planet’s unique mineral properties.


Loratus System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: Loratus

· Orbits: none

Loratus was an empty system, perhaps named after Loratus Manufacturing, who secretly sold their weapons to the Rebel Alliance, despite being a weapons contractor for the Galactic Empire.


Rugosa System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: Gash Rugosa

· Orbits:

o unnamed planet

§ Rugosa

A temperate moon of swamps, coral forests, and cave networks, Rugosa was originally colonized by the Rakata some time prior to 30,000 BBY. During the Infinite Empire’s decline, Rugosa was abandoned to time, eventually colonized by Toydarians, who were enslaved to the Hutts at the time. When the Hutts discovered this haven, they released a plague that poisoned and dried up the oceans.


During the “True” Sith Empire’s return to the galaxy, the Sith investigated the coral forests for clues to ancient Ratakan facilities, achieving some success. Millennia later, Rugosa was the site of a diplomatic meeting between the Toydarians and Galactic Republic. The Separatists tried to intervene, sparking a battle.


Sanbra System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: Sanbra

· Orbits: none

Sanbra was an empty system that saw little galactic traffic.


Yuga System (O-17)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o one unnamed planet (presumably Yuga 1)

o Yuga 2

Yuga 2 was a tropical world of rainforests, and the site of the famous Yuga Planetary Park.
