The Gowix Corp superstructure was a building owned by Gowix Corporation in the Axial Park district's Archival Square of Coronet City, the capital city of the planet Corellia. The building was thousands of meters high, and in 3641 BBY, during the Battle of Corellia between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, Sith and Imperial forces seized control of the building. Those forces installed a weapon known as the Firestorm Turbolaser in the upper floors of the Gowix Corporation building as well as two other buildings as part of Operation Firestorm—a Sith plot designed by the fallen Jedi Master Tol Braga to inflict heavy casualties in Axial Park with the Turbolasers. However, the Jedi Knight known as the Hero of Tython flew an assault shuttle to one of the building's landing pads and infiltrated the building, eliminating the Imperials and Sith within before destroying the Turbolaser.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Gowix Corp superstructure first appeared in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011, as a class-restricted phase for the Jedi Knight class mission "Firestorm."
