Docking Bay 21 was a docking bay located on[1] the Core Worlds planet[2] Coruscant.[1] At some point prior to the Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY,[3] the cyborg bounty hunter Beilert Valance parked his[1] cruiser,[4] 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[1] the Hidden Hand criminal syndicate's leader,[5] 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.[1]

Docking Bay 21 appeared in the first issue of the comic-book miniseries Star Wars: Target Vader. It was written by Robbie Thompson, illustrated by Marc Laming and Cris Bolson, and published by Marvel Comics[1] on July 3, 2019.[6]

  3. 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.
