"I have a deep-space communication of first priority for Governor Bin Essada on territorial administrative world Gyndine."

Gyndine was a planet in the Expansion Region. It was a local administrative center, and had mid-sized, advanced shipyards.


During the last year of the Great Sith War, Gyndine was the site of a battle in which the Galactic Republic was victorious. Millennia later, Jedi were victorious at Gyndine during a battle of the New Sith Wars.[3]

During the last decades of the Old Republic, the planet was de jure a Republic world but de facto controlled by the Hutts who maintained an economic domination on the planet.[3][4]

Kuat Drive Yards maintained research shipyards in orbit of the planet. Before her discovery by Anakin Skywalker, the astromech R4-P17 was almost destroyed in an accident involving a trash compactor there.

Prior to the Clone Wars, in 22 BBY, a slaving operation was uncovered in the city of Yractos on Gyndine, where a Thalassian slaver was attempting to sell twelve Twi'lek slaves. During plea bargain sessions with the slaver, Jurisconsult Temlet Dodann uncovered evidence that four Outer Rim senators had also been involved with the slavers.

During the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic opened a droid reclamation plant on Gyndine.[5]

During the Galactic Civil War, Gyndine was the headquarters of Moff Bin Essada, whose responsibilities also included the Circarpous system.[6]

During the Imperial Civil War, Gyndine protected itself by becoming a fortress world. It guarded itself with a powerful planetary shield and maintained a defense fleet of thirty starships.[source?]

By 4 ABY, the planet had become an Imperial fortress world. The Empire abandoned the planet in 6 ABY, after the Battle of Reytha. Gyndine joined the New Republic sometime between 6 ABY and 7 ABY. It was a New Republic stronghold during the Hunt for Zsinj and the Thrawn campaign but the planet surrendered to the Empire during Operation Shadow Hand.[3]

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the planet agreed to accept refugees, only to be attacked and conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong.[7] During the battle, the extragalactic invaders deployed Fire Breathers which burned Gyndine's forests and boiled its lakes. The New Republic later raided the world.[8] Just before the end of the war, Boba Fett and his Mandalorian Protectors, whom he had taken command of following the death of Fenn Shysa, arrived at Gyndine. Deploying Meteor-class Q-Carriers and Pursuer Enforcement Ships from a Mandalorian dungeon ship, they were able to reclaim the world from its conquerors.[9]

In 40 ABY, Gyndine's shipyard facilities, under the control of the Galactic Alliance, were assaulted by a Confederation task force and damaged.[10]

By 137 ABY, Gyndine was under the control of Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The well-known 1978 blueprints by Geoffrey Mandel name Gyndine as the site of the shipyard where the prototype of the "Star Destroyer Imperator Class" was built, but it is unclear whether these plans were an official publication.
