"It's like I'm seasick or something. You know how I got floating on the waves on Camus IV, pal, that time we tried to take a little vacation?"
―Han Solo, to Chewbacca[src]

Camus IV was the fourth planet[3] of the Camus system,[1] located in the Illisurevimurasi sector, within the Trans-Hydian portion of the Outer Rim Territories.[2] Sometime prior to the Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY,[4] the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca once vacationed on Camus IV, but Solo became seasick while floating among the planet's ocean waves.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Camus IV was created for the July 1998 young-readers story Star Wars Journal: Hero for Hire, written by Donna Tauscher.[3]

The Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Camus system, and therefore the planet itself, in grid square Q-4.[1]

This area of the Outer Rim Territories corresponds to the Trans-Hydian region, according to The Essential Atlas.

  4. Star Wars Journal: Hero for Hire is set immediately following Han Solo's liberation from carbonite, as depicted in the film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The preceding film, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which The Essential Reader's Companion dates to 3 ABY, covers Solo's time from the Battle of Hoth to his carbon-freezing, thus placing his trip to Camus IV sometime prior.
