Altair 9 was a dark, swampy planet in the Altair system of the Outer Rim Territories.

HistoryEdit

Located on the edge of space controlled by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the planet was involved in a small skirmish between the Republic and the Separatists. Fighting on the ground, ARC Trooper Alpha-98 was attacked by a broca whilst fighting against the Separatist Droid Army.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Altair is the name of a well-known star in Earth's own Galaxy, and the use of this name in Star Wars can be compared to the references to Rigel VII; but the use of Arabic rather than Roman numerals in the source, "Altair 9" rather than "Altair IX", suggests that Altair 9 may be the ninth moon of a gas-giant named Altair, rather than the ninth planet of a star of that name.
