Early in the Galactic Civil War, in 2 BBY, Gus Talon was occupied by the Galactic Empire while a Rebel cell operated in a settlement of the moon. At the same time, a young Wedge Antilles worked on Gus Talon as a freighter pilot. There, he fell in love with Mala Tinero, who was killed by the Empire during a retaliatory bombardment of the moon. Her death gave Antilles a deep hatred of the Empire and caused him to join the fledgling Rebel Alliance.
Behind the scenes
Gus Talon made its first appearance in the comic story "Lucky". It was described in the comic as a "Corellian moon", which contradicted the sourcebook Coruscant and the Core Worlds, which claimed that Corellia had no moons. This inconsistency was retconned in 2008 by The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which described Gus Talon as a "moon of Corellia".
In Star Wars Galaxies, three moons could be viewed from the surface of Corellia, as well as from space. One of these moons must have been Gus Talon.
