"Jan Dodonna was always planning for the future…he had preliminary scans for possible new rebel bases."
"Gimme a look at that…Atanu, Jabone IV, Lonania Prime, Hoth, Mupin XII?"
―Leia Organa and Han Solo[1]

Jabone IV was a location. General Jan Dodonna of the Alliance to Restore the Republic carried out preliminary scans of several locations, including Jabone IV, to determine a suitable site for a new base[1] prior to his death in 1 ABY.[2] Following Dodonna's death, the rebels Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo were sent to perform reconnaissance on the locations Dodonna had scanned, including Jabone IV.[1]
