Jarbanov's moon orbited the barren planet Jarbanov,[3] situated in an intersection between the Expansion Region[1] and the Slice region.[2] The moon was located on the outskirts of the junker systems[3] in the grid square P-11 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[1]

Around 5 ABY,[4] the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing conducted an operation in which one of its squadrons, Squadron Four, attacked the colony on Jarbanov while the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier Aerie collected the wreckage of nine TIE/ln space superiority starfighters from Jarbanov's orbital junk rings. In its escape from the planet, Squadron Four evaded a New Republic corvette in Jarbanov's orbit and rendezvoused with another cruiser-carrier, the Allegiance, behind Jarbanov's moon as planned beforehand. After collecting the squadron, the Allegiance escaped into hyperspace.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Jarbanov's moon was mentioned in Shadow Fall, the second novel in Alexander Freed's Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy which was published in 2020.[3]
