- "During your travels, you must try to find out, discreetly, what the Empire wants with, say, the Beta System."
- ―General Airen Cracken
The Beta system was a star system with a Galactic Empire presence during the Galactic Civil War. General Airen Cracken used the system as an example while briefing new Alliance to Restore the Republic agents.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Beta system should not be confused with the "Beta 6" system in the non-canon Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans, which is a reference to the "Beta VI colony" mentioned in an episode of Star Trek. The system may also have taken its name from the Space: 1999 Year One episode "The Last Enemy"'s planet Beta, constantly in war with planet Delta, which cannot be seen by Beta, as the two planets follow complementary orbits around an unnamed star.
