- "Dantooine! They're on Dantooine!"
- ―Leia Organa
This Rebel base was the first base used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic after the signing of the Corellian Treaty in 2 BBY and was located on the planet Dantooine. It was prefabricated and located near the Jedi Enclave, where it was intended only to be a temporary base for the Alliance.
History[edit | edit source]
- "An old Rebel base can be found in the northwest corner of Dantooine. It was supposedly abandoned when the traitors making up the Rebel Alliance opted for a new and, one would assume, better base of operations. My belief is that there are still Rebels making use of the base. Maybe not many, but some."
- ―Lieutenant Sabol, to a spacer
In 1 BBY, the Alliance planned to hold Darth Vader hostage here, after he had been captured on Kamino, unaware that Boba Fett was pursuing the Rebels and their valuable hostage in his ship. Before long, the Alliance abandoned it when an Imperial listening device was discovered in the cargo of a vessel docking there, possibly placed by Fett. Leia Organa revealed its existence to the Empire when she was captured, but a survey team soon found it and confirmed that it had been abandoned and was not the current Rebel base as she had claimed.
