Didyma V,[3] also known as Didyma,[1] was a terrestrial world[3] that was located in the New Territories region[2] and Unknown Regions, in grid square J-5 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[1] It was the homeworld of the Didynon Engi Golba.[3] Lommite,[3] a type of ore used in transparisteel,[4] was mined on the world.[3]

By 35 ABY,[5] the First Order, the successor state of the Galactic Empire, had annexed Didyma V, taking control of the lommite production. Golba escaped from the mines after its annexation to join the Resistance, a paramilitary group led by former New Republic senator Leia Organa.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Didyma V was first mentioned in the 2019 reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, written by Pablo Hidalgo.[3]

  5. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker to one year after the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of The Force Awakens to 34 ABY, the events of The Rise of Skywalker, including the appearance of Engi Golba as a Resistance member, must occur in 35 ABY. Since The Visual Dictionary states that Golba joined the Resistance after the annexation of Didyma V, the world must have been annexed by that time.
