The Hidden Rebel Base, also known as the Rebel Hideout, on the planet Corellia was one of the locations the Alliance High Command relocated to after the Battle of Yavin while looking for a more secret location. It was also used to recruit any new Rebels from the planet, and task Rebel Spacers to assist with the Alliance's efforts.
History[edit | edit source]
Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, Admiral Ackbar, C-3PO, and R2-D2 had all been on the base before the creation of Echo Base on Hoth. The Rebels stationed here were on constant alert for stormtroopers patrolling the nearby mountains.
During the Empire Day festivities of 1 ABY, the Empire learned the base's location. They discovered that there was a prison facility within the base where six Imperial officers were being held. Mara Jade tasked a spacer to raid the base and rescue the prisoners. The operative did so successfully, and was awarded the Imperial Badge of Meritorious Service for his accomplishment.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Hidden Rebel Base appeared in the video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.
