Behind the scenes
Bampa'k IV was introduced in Prima Games' 1995 strategy guide for Defender of the Empire, an expansion pack for Totally Games' video game Star Wars: TIE Fighter, both released in 1994. The astronomical object was mentioned in the section for the fourth Missile Boat combat training mission, "Missile Boat vs. TIE Defender." The guide states there that if the player believed that most of the parked TIE Defenders in the mission were easy targets, they would like the lovely swamp land on Bampa'k IV.
