- "Our main concerns are Lantillies, from which we have already repositioned many of our resources. Also, the Imperial facility on Cartao, and Ice Station Beta on Anteevy."
- ―Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit informs the Emperor of the Carrion Spike's suspected targets
Cartao was a planet located in the galaxy's Expansion Region upon which an Imperial facility was built. When a group of dissidents stole the Imperial corvette Carrion Spike from Moff Wilhuff Tarkin and used it to attack Galidraan Station, Cartao and its Imperial facility were considered as potential targets for the ship-jackers. They, along with Lantillies and Ice Station Beta on Anteevy, were listed as theorized targets by Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit of Naval Intelligence when he was questioned on the situation by Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine.
