For other uses, see Farfalla (disambiguation).

The Farfalla system was located in the Indra-su-Mar sector,[1] a part of the Slice portion of[2] the Expansion Region.[1] It shared its name with the half-Bothan Jedi Lord Valenthyne Farfalla.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The Farfalla system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square P-12.[2] Fry has stated that the star systems listed in the book's Appendix section are named after the most prominent planets or celestial bodies located in those systems.[4] Furthermore, he has explicitly confirmed his intention for the Farfalla system to have contained a planet of the same name, which would have served as the homeworld of the half-Bothans.[5]
