Crystalstorms were a type of weather which occurred on the mineral planet Crait,[1] the crystalline planet[2] Christophsis,[3] and the desert planet[4] Seelos, where the storms were a hazard.[3] On Crait, crystalstorms were known to kick up crystals from beneath the planet's surface.[5] When the Nupayuni Mining Consortium first charted Crait, the mining company erected several structures, including a blast door that could withstand crystalstorms.[1] At some point during or prior to 3 BBY,[6] the Rebel Alliance leader Bail Organa established a hidden outpost on the planet, which once bore witness to a crystalstorm.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  6. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the birth of Leia Organa in 19 BBY. As Leia Organa's sixteenth birthday occurs within Leia, Princess of Alderaan, the events of the novel must take place in 3 BBY. Since the outpost on Crait was constructed prior to the events of the novel, the outpost must have been constructed during or prior to 3 BBY.
