- ―Altronel learns of Makintay's time in the colony from Rebels
A penal colony belonging to the Galactic Empire was located on the planet Garen IV during the Galactic Civil War. In 2 BBY, the heir to the throne of the planet Hargeeva, Lord Stevan Makintay, was imprisoned in the colony by his father, Governor Makintay, for deciding to marry the lowborn Ketrian Altronel. A year after the lord's incarceration, he was freed during a raid on the colony by members of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
