"When are you and your troops leaving?"
"Oh, maybe in a few weeks, maybe never. Maybe a permanent presence here is what you people really need… some good, healthy discipline."
Rallo and Captain Turrant[src]

Gus Talon was one of the three moons of the planet Corellia.


During the Clone Wars, a conference was held on the contested moon to discuss how the Galactic Republic should respond to the recent increase in Separatist activity in the region.[4]

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.[3]

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.
