"Vice Admiral Rancit is convinced that the dissidents intend to attack the Imperial academy at Carida, martyring themselves in the process."
―Darth Vader informs Wilhuff Tarkin of Rancit's plan[src]

Carida was a mountainous planet located in the Carida system within the Colonies region of the galaxy. During the Clone Wars, the Valor space station orbited the planet, while the era of the Galactic Empire saw Carida as home to an Imperial academy and a naval docking facility.

Carida's barren landscape filled with mountains.

Carida was a planet located in the Carida system within the galaxy's Colonies.[1] Carida was mostly covered in barren landscapes filled with mountains.[3] The planet had a Type I atmosphere—it was breathable to oxygen-breathers, such as humans.[4] The planet was also heavily populated with humans.[3]

Separatist forces attempted to destroy Valor during a strategy conference.

Two years into the Clone Wars,[7] Galactic Republic strategists held a conference aboard the Valor space station orbiting Carida. Through the efforts of D-Squad, the droid task force led by Colonel Meebur Gascon, Valor narrowly avoided destruction by an unmanned, rhydonium-filled cruiser which the Confederacy of Independent Systems intended to use as an unassuming bomb.[2]

Years later, during the reign of the Galactic Empire, Carida's Imperial academy became a target for a attack by rebels. After stealing Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's personal corvette, the Carrion Spike, Berch Teller's rebel cell, secretly aided by Imperial Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit, planned to attack the Imperial facility. Meaning to betray his rebel allies, so as to claim glory among his Imperial peers, Rancit gathered a fleet above the planet and laid in wait for the Spike's arrival. Suspecting the vice admiral's treachery, the cell sent the corvette to Carida on auto-pilot and escaped. Upon his arrival in Carida space, the Sith Lord Darth Vader boarded Rancit's Secutor-class Star Destroyer Conquest and, revealing that Vice Admiral's plot had come to light, ordered that Rancit be ejected in an escape pod and shot down.[5]

Shortly before the Battle of Hoth, Captain Tabor Seitaron of the Carida Academy was pulled back into active duty by Prelate Verge and his Imperial-class Star Destroyer Herald in an effort to hunt down Imperial defector Everi Chalis.[8]
