The Bothan spynet was a well-organized intelligence network that was active during the time of the Galactic Civil War. A Kupohan named Sakhet occasionally did contract work for the Bothan spynet, running a small noodle hut as a front of her intelligence services. The members of the spynet found out about the location of the Second Death Star for the Rebel Alliance to prepare their assault on Death Star II, despite suffering heavy casualties.
