"A nice little backworld place that happens to have a Consolidated Shipping hub and outlet, which means it’ll have all the fuel and supplies we’ll need."
Daric LaRone[src]

Drunost was a planet located within the Shelsha sector of the galaxy. A Consolidated Shipping hub and outlet were located near the planet’s largest town, Conso City, making Drunost a good stop for fuel and supplies. Nominally under the jurisdiction of the Galactic Empire, the world consisted primarily of mines and farmland as well as company towns, and was settled by both Humans and aliens. During the time of the Galactic Civil War, the planet was also home to a Rebel Alliance supply line. The planet was also the scene of pirate activity engaged in by the BloodScar group.

History

Drunost was involved in the Clone Wars, and at one point, Jedi were stationed on the planet. Later, the world was able to distance itself from Imperial business, as the Shelsha sector was scarcely supervised by the Empire, having Imperial garrisons on only two planets and just one Star Destroyer stationed in the area. Consolidated Shipping served as the local authority, doing its best to maintain law and order.

In 0.5 ABY, a supply of arms for the Rebel Alliance that was being transported by Porter and Casement, two agents working for the Rebellion, was targeted by a swoop gang affiliated with the BloodScar pirate group. However, a gang of former stormtroopers who had deserted from Imperial service and dubbed themselves the Hand of Judgment, protected them, not knowing that in doing so they were helping the Rebel Alliance. Han Solo and Chewbacca, along with Luke Skywalker, were sent as representatives of the Alliance in order to meet with Porter after the incident. They met at a tapcafe on Drunost across the street from Consolidated Shipping’s Repository and Currency Exchange. A group of three BloodScars were present at the café, watching a group of off-duty military personnel, as the pirate group had planned to rob the repository; this was in fact a cover for them to pick up the BloodScar swoop gang survivors held in custody. When the break-in begun, the three BloodScars held the soldiers at bay with their blasters, until Skywalker, Solo and Chewbacca intervened, killing one BloodScar and detaining the others. However, the robbery carried on, and the raiders made off with fifty thousand credits and their passengers.

Locations

Drunost’s main point of interest was the Consolidated Shipping hub and outlet, which was located northwest of its center of government, Conso City. The transport business’s complex was surrounded by a loose ring of several small permacrete landing areas that were used by freighters to pick up shipments and by people coming to purchase items directly from Consolidated’s outlet center. The landing fields also had shopping areas from which travelers could buy food and supplies.

The planet’s major town, Conso City, was located on the edge of a river southeast of the hub. The medium-sized city was the main part of Consolidated’s local operation, as Consolidated’s repository, their main administrative offices, and the HoloNet center had been established there. Also, in the northern part of town, across the street from the repository, was a tapcafe, which served both Human and alien clientele.
