This article is about the canon planet.
You may be looking for the convor Ferana or the region Farana in the Star Wars Legends continuity.

Farana was a terrestrial Wild Space planet[1] located in the grid square S-3[2] of the Standard Galactic Grid.[3] A collector of antiquities on Farana maintained an arsenal of starships that included six Flarestar-class attack shuttles and a Corona-class armed frigate—one of a limited run that its manufacturer, Haor Chall Engineering Corporation, had sold off to various interested third parties.[1]

At some point by 21 BBY,[4] the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka accidentally discovered the collector's starships on Farana. The Corona-class frigate piqued Ohnaka's interest, and in order to obtain the ship, the pirate wrought chaos around the planet. Finally, the collector agreed to let Ohnaka just leave Farana with both the frigate—which Ohnaka eventually named the Acushnet—and the Flarestar-class attack shuttles in his possession and promised to not seek retribution against the Weequay. Ohnaka then accepted an additional bribe from the former owner of the vessels before departing the planet.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Farana was introduced in the current Star Wars canon in the seventy-second issue of Star Wars: Build the Millennium Falcon magazine,[1] published around May 18, 2016.[5] Farana was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry.[6]

Helmet Collection logo small.png Star Wars Helmet Collection 30 (Highlights of the Saga: The Betrayal of Captain Argyus) places the events of "Cloak of Darkness" in 21 BBY, and Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates "Blue Shadow Virus" to the same year. As "Dooku Captured" takes place between those two Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes according to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), it must also take place in 21 BBY. Since the Acushnet is in the possession of Hondo Ohnaka in "Dooku Captured," Ohnaka must have acquired the frigate at some point by that date, as well.
