"You can find a Hyperdrive yard where I marked it on your datapad. Mind you, I'm not going to help you with blowing up the place, but it sure will keep me warm at night knowing they got their just desserts for snubbing me."
―A commoner, to a spacer[src]

The Hyperdrive Research Facility was a research facility of the Galactic Empire on the Nabooian moon Rori.

History[edit | edit source]

"I used to work on making some real fine hyperdrives for them, but then they went off and bought my company right out from under me. That place used to be mine, and I swear I'm not going to see it owned by anyone else!"
―A commoner, to a spacer[src]

The Hyperdrive Research Facility was home to some of the top hyperdrive research in the galaxy.[1] It was originally a Rorian company that manufactured hyperdrive systems for the Galactic Empire. However, at some point, the Empire decided to buy the facility and forced its owner to sell the company.[3]

After the Battle of Yavin, the facility was staffed by a number of Imperial forces, including stormtrooper riflemen and a Brigadier General.[1]

Circa 1 ABY,[4] the Imperial Hyperdrive Research Facility had become a contested hotspot in the Galactic Civil War and Imperial and Rebel forces fought several times for the control of the facility. Rebel forces managed to capture the facility several times but Imperial forces had always taken it back.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Hyperdrive Research Facility was a location in the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided,[1] prior to the game's closure on December 15, 2011.[5] With the release of the "Publish 1" update on August 3, 2003,[6] the Imperial Stronghold was turned into a "Factional NPC Base". Groups of Rebel players could attack Imperial NPCs and achieve several objectives to take control of the base.[2]
