Bestine was Tatooine's first modern settlement,<ref name="SoT" /> but its start as a farming and mining community was fraught with challenges. During its first precarious season, sandstorms nearly destroyed every building, most of the [[Bantha/Legends|banthas]] disappeared, and barely enough food was grown. Exasperating matters, a local group of Tatooine's native [[Jawa/Legends|Jawa's]] stole [[2PO]], a [[Protocol droid/Legends|protocol droid]] belonging to Arnthout. The settlers were enraged, and Arnthout felt pressured to confront the Jawas.<ref name="Eisley" /> She quickly concluded, however, that the Jawa's were mostly harmless. When the Jawa's led her back to where they were keeping her [[Droid/Legends|droid]], it translated for her their innocent intentions toward the colonists. Within [[Standard minute/Legends|minutes]], Arnthout negotiated not only a mutual nonaggression pact, but water rights, salvage rights, and agreements for the free trade of information. Within a few [[Standard month/Legends|months]], Jawas were a frequent sight in and around Bestine, where they could be found teaching the local miners important tips on how to survive Tatooine. Contending with dwindling water supplies, Arnthout and the colonists decided to spread farther apart in hopes of maximizing the efficiency of their [[Moisture vaporator/Legends|moisture-gathering vaporators]].

When another ship full of settlers arrived, the Tusken Raiders appeared outnumbered and seemingly vanished back into the desert sands. However, this new group of settlers showed no interest in rebuilding Fort Tusken. Instead, in [[93 BBY/Legends|93 BBY]], they reestablished a community in the ruins of the much older settlement named Anchorhead. Because all their ships landed intact, the people of Anchorhead were able to construct a [[Spaceport/Legends|spaceport]] in a very short time. All ore exported from Tatooine passed through Anchorhead, resulting in its prosperity. As Anchorhead gradually transformed into the seat of government on Tatooine, Bestine lost much of its importance, and was forced to pay expensive export fees levied on them by Anchorhead mining concerns. To regain some of their prestige, the residents of Bestine voted to construct their own spaceport,<ref name="SoT" /> centered around the scavenged remains of the ''Dowager Queen'' further to the east.<ref name="Eisley" /> A third group of settlers comprising of [[Rodian/Legends|Rodian]] refugees lent their support to this endeavor. However, they also brought with them a great deal of corruption. Regardless, the planned "ultramodern" spaceport of [[Mos Eisley/Legends|Eisley]] was established in [[85 BBY/Legends|85 BBY]], and it eventually evolved into the seedy den of vice of violence known as Mos Eisley.<ref name="SoT" />
