"Many Bothans died to bring us this information."
Mon Mothma, before the Battle of Endor[src]

Bothans were a sentient species[2] known for operating a spy network.[3] Bothans were known to communicate with each other in a series of growls.[2]

Bothan spies were credited with stealing information concerning the DS-2 Death Star II Mobile Battle Station, despite sustaining heavy casualties, thereby enabling the Rebel Alliance to plan an attack on the unfinished space station.[1] The Bothans also provided the Rebel Alliance with other useful information, such as the door code for the shield generator bunker on the forest moon of Endor.[4]
