"Now—suppose the first six weeks after Endor go unchanged from the world we know, but someone takes unambiguous command of Imperial forces after. There's no time for schism, no real power grabs. Worlds like Fedovoi End and Gerrethum pledge allegiance to a restored Imperial High Command. What changes?"
―Yrica Quell, to Soran Keize[5]

Gerrenthum was a planet[6] located in the Gerrenthum system[3] of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, serving as the Anoat sector's capital after the previous capital, Anoat, was rendered uninhabitable. For many years, Imperial Governor Ubrik Adelhard governed the sector with an iron fist and absolute loyalty to the Galactic Empire.[1] Orbited by a security station,[3] many business owners and politicians on Gerrenthum openly bribed Imperials to ignore their illegal activities.[4]

This section of the article assumes 100% game completion of Star Wars: Uprising. Any alternate stories may be noted in the "Behind the scenes" section. The events in this section may or may not have been confirmed as canon.

During the Iron Blockade, which was established by the Empire in an attempt to prevent news of their crushing defeat by the Alliance to Restore the Republic at the Battle of Endor from reaching the Anoat sector's populace,[6] the Smuggler sent members of their crew on missions to Gerrenthum to complete various tasks, including sending a team disguised as Imperials to collect bribes from the locals to fund their future efforts,[4] boarding its orbital security station and disabling their orbital alarm beacons at the request of Leeka Pali, allowing the Trade Spine League to move their larger ships out of the system,[3] and smuggling medical supplies from Gerrenthum to a makeshift medical center on the planet Nothoiin.[7]

By 5 ABY,[8] Gerrenthum was no longer affiliated with the Empire's loyalist forces. When listing a fake scenario to her commanding officer Soran Keize, Yrica Quell of the Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing suggested that Gerrenthum and Fedovoi End, another planet which had split from the loyalist faction, would pledge allegiance to a reformed Imperial High Command.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Gerrenthum was originally created for the Galaxy Guide 2: Yavin and Bespin, a 1989 Star Wars Legends supplement written by Jonatha Caspian for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[9] It became canon when it appeared in the action role-playing game Star Wars: Uprising, which was developed by Kabam for iOS and Android platforms[6] and released on September 10, 2015.[10]

  8. Victory's Price begins eleven months after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY, and features the Battle of Jakku, which Galactic Atlas in turn places in 5 ABY. Since Before the Awakening establishes that Kes Dameron and Shara Bey moved to Yavin 4 around six months after the Battle of Endor and Galactic Atlas dates their move to 5 ABY, Victory's Price must therefore be set in 5 ABY.
