"The Star Fortress is the heart of Zakuul's treachery on Alderaan. With it removed, this world might have a chance to rebuild. But the battle station is protected by a powerful shield generator here on the surface. We must eliminate it, first."
―Choza Raabat[src]

After the end of their conquest of the galaxy around 3636 BBY, the Eternal Empire of the planet Zakuul built a shield bunker in the Juran Mountains on the planet Alderaan to support the Star Fortress that they placed in geosynchronous orbit above the bunker.[4] Commanded by ZK-723S, an elite Skytrooper, the bunker and its deflector shield generator was protected by powerful defensive emplacements, walkers, and Eternal Empire troopers.[3] In 3631 BBY,[2] the Outlander—leader of an Alliance against Zakuul—rallied the local resistance against the Eternal Empire[4] and organized a bombardment of the bunker, allowing the Outlander and the Ithorian Jedi Choza Raabat to infiltrate and destroy the bunker and thus expose the Star Fortress.[3]

Behind the scenes

The shield bunker on Alderaan was first added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic in Knights of the Fallen Empire, a 2015 Digital Expansion.
