The Bestine Imperial garrison, also known as the Imperial fort was, as its name suggests, an Imperial garrison located on top of a small mountain overlooking the capital city of Bestine on the planet Tatooine.
The garrison was in operation during the time of the Galactic Civil War, serving as a base of operations for the Galactic Empire following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY. It garnered the support of Victor Visalis, the Officer of Defense who sought to protect Bestine from various entities, such as bandits and Tusken Raiders.
Pfilbee Jhorn was stationed at this garrison as a janitor, hiring a spacer to exterminate certain animals for him. An Imperial recruiter, Captain Jasha and Caleb Knolar also operated out of this fort-like structure.
