- "The Hardan plague that resulted in the deaths of 98% of the inhabitants of Dagelin Minor was traced to a single shipment of brown nafen that were imported in an attempt to control an infestation of dhuru flies."

Dagelin Minor was an Outer Rim Territories celestial body located in the Cadma sector. A shipment of the flying rodents known as Bogan's brown nafen was at one point imported there for the purposes of combating an infestation of dhuru flies. The nafen, however, caused an outbreak of the Hardan plague that wiped out ninety-eight percent of the local population. In response, Imperial Senator Leia Organa visited Dagelin Minor on a mercy mission.
Dagelin Minor was a terrestrial astronomical object located in the Dagelin Minor system, a part of the Cadma sector in the Slice portion of the Outer Rim Territories. It was situated on the Cadma Conduit hyperlane, which connected it to the Simbarc system as well as the Tharin sector's Junkfort system and the Oseon system in the Centrality sector.
At some point, Dagelin Minor faced an infestation of dhuru flies. In response, a shipment of Bogan's brown nafen—insectivorous flying rodents only found on primarily tropical planets—was brought onto the celestial body. The nafen, which were notorious for being extremely efficient transmitters of disease, caused an outbreak of the Hardan plague on Dagelin Minor, which led to the deaths of ninety-eight percent of its population.
In response, at some point between 2 BBY and 0 BBY, the Imperial Senator Leia Organa visited Dagelin Minor on her consular starship, the Tantive IV, on a well-publicized mercy mission to bring emergency gear and medical supplies to the inhabitants of the celestial body. It was eventually discovered that the devastating outbreak had originated from the single shipment of Bogan's brown nafen, and during the reign of the Galactic Empire, that fact was noted in an entry of a holobrochure for the Tagge Holographic Museum of Chandrila dedicated to the nafen.
Behind the scenes
Dagelin Minor was first mentioned in the 1994 sourcebook Creatures of the Galaxy, published by West End Games for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. The section of the book mentioning the celestial body was authored by Chuck Truett. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed Dagelin Minor in grid square T-8.
