"Hate to break it to you, but no one does salvage on Anoat for a reason. Place is toxic."
"Not toxic. Not anymore. Just forbidden."
―A young smuggler and Tam Bastion[1]

Anoat was a polluted planet located in the Anoat system of the Outer Rim Territories.


Anoat was connected to the planet Sullust by the Incisor Sidestep hyperspace route and the Ring of Kafrene mining colony by the Corellian Trade Spine, which also continued on from Anoat out toward Wild Space.[3]


"This wasn't an accident. This was the Empire's doing."
"Come on. The Empire wouldn't—I mean, this was years before Alderaan and the Death Star…"
"Now you understand why our Rebellion keeps fighting."
―Tam Bastion and a young smuggler[1]

Anoat was a city-sprawled planet.

Once a sprawling city-world, Anoat served as the capital of the entire Anoat sector. However, years before the Battle of Yavin, the entire planet was gassed by the Galactic Empire, and the atmosphere became toxic and poisonous, forcing much of the population to flee from the polluted world. Some people, however, did not leave the planet. Those who did not die were driven insane by the toxins, evolving over time into savage and feral creatures referred to as "Lurkers." During the Galactic Civil War, the planet was under the control of the Galactic Empire and contained the sector's largest concentration of Imperial forces.[1]

Sometime after the Battle of Crait, the Resistance maintained a camp on Anoat.[4]
