During the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire, a thief arrested since 30 years admitted to have hidden his stolen goods in the sewage system of Anoat.[5]

The planet, while habitable, was generally inhospitable, like the other worlds of the Anoat system. Discovered shortly before the Clone Wars by the Figg Excavations group, Human colonists began to populate a part of the world as excavation began. Disregarding the fragile ecosystem, the miners shattered the earth and poisoned the atmosphere. Leaving the world a ruin, many of the settlements were abandoned due to pollution.[3]

During the reign of the Galactic Empire and the throughout the Galactic Civil War the planet's only settlement, Anoat City, served as the secret base of Imperial weapons designer Moff Rebus. During the war, Rebel mercenary Kyle Katarn extracted Rebus from his hideout in the sewers of Anoat City and brought him to justice.[6] Later, in 3 ABY following the Battle of Hoth, the Millennium Falcon passed through the Anoat system while running from the Imperial Navy.[7]

Behind the scenes[]

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Anoat in the Churba sector, which is actually located in the Mid Rim.
