Docking Bay 21 was a docking bay located on the Core Worlds planet Coruscant. At some point prior to the Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY, the cyborg bounty hunter Beilert Valance parked his cruiser, the Broken Wing, in Docking Bay 21 and traveled to the BG-RT's Tavern and Spirits cantina in Level 1313. Upon returning to the bay following a shootout at the cantina, he was greeted by the Hidden Hand criminal syndicate's leader, Gwi, who offered him a job, claiming to be a humble messenger for the organization. Valance initially refused, but accepted the offer after hearing that his target was the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Target Vader 1
- Ultimate Star Wars
- Star Wars: Target Vader is set before Empire Ascendant 1, which in turn takes place before the Battle of Hoth. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the battle to 3 ABY, the events of Target Vader, including the appearance of Docking Bay 21 in Target Vader 1, must have taken place sometime prior.
